    Thursday Night Fever! All You Can Hold, Rp.300K, at Marriott, Jakarta! 

    As most of you regulars know, I like going out on the town, parties wherever and whenever I can get to them. Not so much on weekends, because once you retire from the fray of regular work, a Saturday is no different from a Tuesday or a Wednesday.



    Note I skip Monday, a day resented for so many years for its ‘return to duty’ significance that even now I prefer to sleep through most of it.

    For some reason, a lot of my outings occur on Thursdays, so the info I offer today is not something I personally will be free to take adantage of.

    But last Thursday i was free and I did.

    The Blu Martini bar in J W Marriott Hotel, downtown, in posh Kuningan, Jakarta, is a very fine place. 


    • =======================
    • In times past, their New Year’s Eve parties attracted my patronage, but in normal times, its prices dissuade me from frequent attendance. A glass of beer costs about Rp70,000, and THAT’s Happy Hour! However, the clever management have just launched a weekly event, a Korean Night, for which the fee is Rp.300,000.

    I went last week, and can report the price includes all-you-can-eat Korean-style nosh, all very tasty, AND as much beer as you can force down your gullet in the space of three hours.

    Thus a shrinking violet will gain little from going there, but the likes of your truly, who managed nine glasses, decent sized glasses, undoubtedly emerges a winner – it was a quiet night, no milling throng, not out with a revelling crowd, and only one spare cutie at the bar, so I was taking it easy.

    Not for me this Thursday, got too much on elsewhere, but if you’re in the vicinity, I recommend you give it a try.

    There’s also live music!

    Oh, and the staff are very friendly, no slouches when your glass runs dry.

      I will try it.
      I like Korean food but I don’t think I will have quite as much beer as you did.
