What is a bar?
Wikipedia said a bar is a retail business establishment that serves alcoholic beverages, such as beer, wine, liquor, cocktails, and other beverages like mineral water and soft drinks and often sell snack foods, like crisps or peanuts, for consumption on premises.

For me, Bar is a place where we can take a break for a moment from the world that full of fatigue and headache. That is the feeling that I have got, once I put my feet into Barong Bar at Fairmont Jakarta.

Once we stepped into Barong Bar, we are going to feel a different vibe and atmosphere from the world we live in. Yup, it feels like we are in a different world. I can imagine to have a glass or two at the bar table, or even to celebrate a multibillion project deal with client at Barong Bar.

The Masculinity atmosphere was really thick. Barong Bar brings more intimate ambiance for their customer. Lead by the dynamic, creative and innovative bartenders, the team is set and ready to entice guests with the creation of bespoke cocktails based on each guests’ preferences.

Barong Bar aims to deliver the most progressive, innovative cocktails using locally sourced ingredients mixed with classic techniques. Currently, a wide selection of New World and aged European wines, coupled with an extensive whiskey list will make up the bar.

Scotch Whiskey, Benedictine, Rosemary, Raisin Honey Syrup, Lemon

This highland Daisy is a one of a must try cocktail in Barong Bar. It has a distinctly flavor that give you a refreshing and thirst quenching effect. The strong and toughness of scotch whiskey was smoothed with the honey and citrusy flavor.

This Highland Daisy was served with a fresh rosemary as a garnish. The pungent yet beautiful fragrant from the rosemary compliment the beverage with a refreshing and indulging sensation. Such a beautiful compliment to the beverage.

NEGRONI | IDR 130,000
Gin, Vermouth, Campari

From the look, I really love the glistening dark amber color from this drink. It was served in a whiskey glass with a rock and lemon. One thing to be noted is the shape of the ice. Yup, it is not cube, but it was round. For your information, round shape reduces water dilution caused by melting ice. That is why we can enjoy this drink zip by zip.

It taste like a christmas tree! Which is a very good thing. The dry and strong taste of gin was blend beautifully with a citrusy flavor. Really love the character of this drink with a sweet cheery aftertaste.

Mango, Lime, Sprite

For a nonalcoholic drinker, you can try this mocktail from Barong Bar. It has tropical refreshing and indulging taste. The sweet and indulging mango was complemented with the sour and refreshing lemon and sweet tickling sprite. Such a wonderful drink for quenching your thirst after a very long day.

I really love the masculine and intimacy atmosphere at Barong Bar. I can imagine that I sit there on the bar with my friends, talking about everything until we satisfied and recharged to face the upcoming days. Well, stay tune for another great hang out place at Fairmont Jakarta.

Have a great day and Godspeed!
