Nestled atop of the Kosenda Hotel, Awan Lounge is a darling spot for the night-owls and white-collars of the surrounding Thamrin area to wind down as the sun sets. Wouldn’t you love to spend the evening with cocktails over a pleasant skyline? And where you’d previously find yourself in a garden-like atmosphere, the rooftop has now been revamped into a modish urban jungle-themed space.
Not only that, in addition to the bar’s new look, the newly renovated Awan Lounge also adds Japanese fares that will easily take care of your hunger. To wit, the Takoyaki (Japanese ball-shaped snack filled with octopus) would be a delightful way to kick-off your evening with friends. Japanese skewers, otherwise known as Yakitori, also make an appearance here. But if one were to choose, have the succulent Beef Garlic Skewer with BBQ sauce, before savouring Awan Lounge’s rendition of the classic Chicken Teriyaki served over warm rice. While Japanese cuisine is their new forte, there are other comforting options that are familiar, such as the hearty Beef Burger that would easily satisfy any after-work hunger.
The cocktails, no doubt, are the highlight here at Awan Lounge. The Sumatra Surfer, a fruity concoction of Amaretto, coconut liqueur, pineapple and cranberry juice is a foolproof option for those looking to take the edge-off after a day’s hustle. The Jakarta street that blends tequila, blue curaçao and grenadine syrup also prescribes as a friendly cocktail to enjoy in the company of the evening breeze.
And the cherry on top is Awan Lounge’s laid-back ambience that hits the spot at every visit. That spirit is more than well and alive now in its new atmosphere, as it’ll keep conversations flowing through the night. With good food and good drinks, expect Awan Lounge to remain buzzing with its flock of regular patrons looking for a feel-good way to round up the evening.
