Ayana Midplaza Jakarta Transforms Hotel Lobby Into JimBARan Living Room

Opening mid-August within the open atrium lounge of AYANA, JimBARan Living Room is Jakarta’s new meeting place, where business and social networking intertwine for lunch, dinner and personalized afternoon tea with an imaginative touch.

Our guests are invited to frequent JimBARan Living Room as they would a private club in the heart of Jakarta’s buzzing commercial business district. Semi-private lounge spaces offer a new level of comfort, where guests are welcome to sip and savor with seamless connectivity.

Inspired by modern and worldlytrends, as well as his love of Indonesia’s local products and flavors, AYANA’s Executive Sous Chef Johan is ready to ‘wow’ Jakarta’s discerning foodie community with a divine, light lunch and dinner menu. Chef Johan’s signature offerings will include such temptations as duck breast, veal loin and healthy creations crafted with quinoa. Mastering the art of the sweet indulgence, Pastry Chef Beno will introduce Jakarta’s gourmands to a new style of afternoon tea, where every single corner of the canvas is tailored to the individual’s palate. “I’ve always loved the traditionalafternoon tea,” he says, “however I am very excited about showcasing our team’s creative pursuits and elevating the experience to reflect AYANA’s signature lifestyle, while also highlighting local flavors and ingredients.”

Chef Beno’s goal is to provide guests with a truly personalized afternoon tea encounter, offering the ability to choose interesting selections – such as macha scones and squid ink macaroons – to fit their mood. Beautifully presented in artisan-crafted table and glassware, Chef Beno’safternoon tea will feature a musical of culinary luxuries to create the joy of lingering emotions.

Described as the exclusive topping for artfully tweaked Java, guests may choose from gourmet chocolate shavings, available in different cacao percentages, adding to the tailored experience. Sparking the culinary imagination, beverage specialist Justin and his skillfully engaged team will augment every afternoon tea experience with a theatrical nuance, such as adding final artistic touches to divine dishes right at the table.

From later in the afternoon to well into the evening, JimBARan Living Room transforms once again into anafter-work retreat, offering a warm and friendly atmosphere with live jazz and swing bands while guests relax over inspiring cocktails, innovative bites and compelling conversation. Appealing to the city’s dynamic community, from busy executives who need a sophisticated spot for spontaneous meetings, to the ladies of Jakarta who gather weekly to catch up on the latest happenings over stylish drinks and sumptuous bites, our culinary artists promise to excite and elevate the senses of every guest who spends time at JimBARan Living Room.
