I love Bandung

English Bahasa Indonesia


Travel to Bandung and search for a relaxing place to enjoy a beer or two in a convivial atmosphere. Remember that there are bars, restaurant bars, resto cafes, bar lounges etc but to be listed here there must be an actual bar where you can sit on a stool and have a beer!

Travel to Bandung and enjoy a drink in a Bandung Bar


Bandung bars have generally simple themes with little 'glitz' - basic wooden tables and chairs set in unostentatious surroundings but that is not to say that they lack character.

See our live music venues for entertainment with your drinks and our karaoke pages if you like to sing-along.

OJ's Setrasari Plaza II Bl B/8

OJ's always seems to be busy and has expanded its seating area from just the inside of the bar itself into the car parking area complete with tables, umbrellas and greenery.

The owner, John, must have a Master's degree in conviviality and makes all his guests feel that they are individually important.

Apart from the bar at ground level there is also seating on the first floor.

The food menu is pretty average but popular nevertheless and on the nights when there is live music it's my kind of bar.

Setrasari Mall B3/60 Tel: 2016625

Live music on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, draught Bintang and imported bottled beers - pretty waitresses too. Quieter than OJ's but with its own relaxing flavor and regular customers. Sometimes the bands are really good, other times .........

Volcano now has a whole chicken rotisserie situated in the outside seating area. The chickens are flavored with a sauce that both expats and locals find delicious and you can spice it up with one of their home made relishes. Their tomato soup is good too. Not yet on the menu but available on request is Irish coffee - not quite up to the standard of the coffees at 254 (see below) but getting there.

On level 2 there is another small bar with seating and a pool table but rumor has it that this is being changed into a karaoke area.
