The Golden Era of Cocktails at The Writers Bar
A true masterpiece that brings guests back into time, The Writers Bar in Raffles Hotel Jakarta is the place to find an oasis that will unwind guests and transport them into the “Golden Era” of cocktails.
This sanctuary calls on the opulence of yesteryear with a unique beverage experience with table side service by roaming bartenders, legendary cocktails from the 1920s, all set within the timeless elegance of Raffles. These roaming bartenders offer a variety of aperitifs, classic concoctions, and digestives, all prepared right at the table allowing full immersion in the mystical mix of flavours.
For a flavour sensation, as an aperitif, the iconic Cherry Cobbler is a cool, crisp and refreshing quintessential beverage perfect to prepare the palate for the rest of the evening. Sip on a classic Scofflaw, a fruity cocktail that signifies everything that was right with the 1920’s or the El Presidente, a bright digestif with punchy, warm and rich notes, an ideal balance to relax and unwind listening to the classic jazzy tunes.
The ambiance of the room is set with musical notes from greats such as Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole, and legendary jazz musicians. Live jazz music is also performed there every Thursday and Friday, so sipping on that cocktail with live music will truly take the mind on a transformative journey.
The piece de resistance to an unforgettable evening at The Writers Bar would be hand selecting a hand rolled Cuban cigar from the humidor, accompanied by a 120-day-aged Negroni in their signature oak barrel, set amongst the timeless art pieces created by Indonesian legendary artist Hendra Gunawan.
The Writers Bar is the place to live the best life from the 1920s. A place for bespoke cocktails, discreet elegance and intimate conversations, this is a modern tribute to famous writers that have come through and will inspire future writers to create something magical. Currently, The Writers Bar can be found at Raffles Singapore, Raffles Makati and Raffles Jakarta with future locations around the world.
