Central Jakarta bar and pub The Jaya Pub, the first and still one of the best pubs in Jakarta, and the expat bar in the city’s oldest, open since 1976, an amazing 36 years ago. Owned by Rima Melati and her husband Frans Tumbuan.

The Jaya Pub won the 2nd runner-up in a best bar and restaurant vote in Jakarta 2013.

Central Jakarta bar and pub The Jaya Pub is a very old pub in the centre of Jakarta which attracts lots of older expats. The interior is old, classic, retro, unique, reminding me of the 80s and 90s.

They have a daily live band, and customers are welcome to go on stage to sing if they feel brave. The band plays mostly old covers too, it is good, well done.

I went there after dinner on a Monday night with my best friend and the place is awesome.

Not crowded, but still lots of fun. We didn’t eat or drink much that day, but they have a broad menu.

The Jaya Pub serves a full range of steaks, European sausages, and Indonesian favourites such as oxtail soup.

See the bottom of this page for more photos of The Jaya Pub.

For snacks they serve crispy peanuts for 20k, nachos nacho 35k, fish fingers for 31k, and much more, while cocktails, wine etc were a reasonable price.

Central Jakarta bar and pub The Jaya Pub has a pool table too for those who like to do something other than just drink and talk.

Nice staff, nice place, nice live music and a unique place.

There is a Jaya Pub in Bali also, in Seminyak, and it sounds similar, so they are probably connected in some way.

Opening hours: Everyday from 5pm to 2am with happy hour from 5pm to 9pm, plus live music everyday from 9.30pm
