Located at the heart of Kemang area, which is in spotlight for the best hang-out place in Jakarta these days. My advance warning, do not go to Second Floor on weekends, as you will be squeezed by party teenagers. But on any other nights, this is quite a catch. I’ll tell you why.
First, Second floor is in the same building as 2 other marvelous café & bar, TC and Nu China, so if you do get bored or want to find another place, they are just foot-steps away. Second, nonetheless because of its cheap shots and beer. That is why crowds tend to start the night at Second floor.
The place is on the second floor (obviously!). As you enter, you will be surprised (not anymore though, since I’m telling you this) to see the image of you. Yes, they put a large full-body mirror, perchance to double-check your look. After passing several wooden stairways, you will be pampered with maroon-colored sofas, wooden walls and surroundings. The place is small, because you can spot each corner easily. My Favorite spot is the back corner sofa, because there you will have your own private space. The service is rather nice on weekdays, as the place is not too packed.
After having several shots, your chat with friends will stop and turn into dancing, because the hip-hop/trance-techno music with live DJ will spoil your ears. This place is also popular for expatriates hang out. My one and only concern is the toilets. They only provide one toilet for each male/female. The queue is hopeless, especially when you’re quite desperate.
But, if you’re looking for cheap shots and beer, hang-out with friends, this is the place to start your evening.
