Unlike Bali, finding a perfect place with a chill and relax environment in Jakarta can be quite difficult, but this is no longer a problem since Intercontinental Jakarta Midplaza launched JimBARan Outdoor Lounge.
Entering JimBARan Outdoor Lounge is just like entering an oasis for AnakJajan. The open air terrace with a sound of water and chill lounge music was just perfect to escape from stressful and hectic Jakarta.
AnakJajan almost forgot that we are still in Jakarta. Landscape design here is really interesting with lovely pond below and contemporary seating arrangement.
JimBARan has a wide range of drinks selection from alcohol to non alcohol drink with a lot of interesting creation by their mixologist. AnakJajan tried several cocktails and mocktails, all of it was really refreshing and perfect to quench your thirst on a hot day, my favorite would be After glow IDR 75k and Sunset in the city IDR 120k, refreshing fruity mix with appealing color.
JimBARan also provide light bites tapas to complement the cocktails and mocktails.
Crab Salad on baguette IDR 65k
Crunchy baguette bread topped with fresh crab salad mix on top, the topping was really generous.
Seafood bruschetta IDR 65k
I really like this one, crunchy baguette slice with perfectly cooked & seasoned squid and prawn on top. The seafood was fresh and crunchy.
Red pepper stuffed mushroom IDR 45k
I always love stuffed mushroom. Grilled to perfection mushroom topped with red pepper stuffing with a lit hint of spiciness. Be careful when you bite it because the juice from mushroom will definitely burst out in your mouth, addicting!
Veal and red chili sausage IDR 80k
Everybody’s favorite that day!! Super juicy and succulent bite size cut sausage topped with caramelized onion. The sausage was a bit spicy, combination between savory taste from the sausage and sweetness from caramelized onion were just right, we cannot stop ourselves from munching it. Super recommended!
Atmosphere during and after sunset is also something that you must not miss, whole lounge is decorated with glittering lights, how can you not fall in love with this place?
JimBARan opens from 5pm till midnight everyday, AnakJajan suggest you to go there around 4-5pm so you can enjoy the ambiance and or course take a lot of picture or selfie while the sun still shining bright. Also one thing, dress code is smart casual but no slippers allowed okay. Let’s Jajan!!
