Flow is a charming resto pub destination with an old school vibe offering tantalizing food and drinks and enthralling live music.

LIKE ANY bustling business area, the area of Mega Kuningan – also known as part of the Golden Triangle of Jakarta – is teeming with commercial activities. And where there’s people and work, there’s bound to be a great selection of F&B as well. Amidst your typical offices, business centers, and a collection of good restaurants and cafés in the area, Flow stands out as a charming eatery with a very welcoming interior, a scrumptious menu, good cocktails and classy live music to boot.  

Located at the second floor of Menara BTPN building, Flow aims to combine great food, chill music, and charming bar culture. After a long day at work, there’s nothing quite like chilling on one of Flow’s comfortable long sofas, enjoying a hearty meal paired with a craft beer or stunning cocktail while the band plays soothing tunes in the background. “Flow means to provide these comforting elements to create a sanctuary in which guests can relax after a hard day’s work, or simply take refuge from painful traffic,” owner Jimmy Minata stated.

Flow is accessible through an understated entrance engraved with its recognizable insignia, and upon entry, guests is greeted by a relaxed ambience dominated by furniture carrying wooden and earthy undertones. At the front of Flow is a bar and social area for those looking to commune in a casual atmosphere over refreshing cocktail brews or craft beer. The bar exudes familiarity with a combination of dark marble and wood counter, while adjacent tables set against the windows are perfect to enjoy some light bites or even a proper meal.

Further inside is the main dining area, with flattering lighting setting a romantic ambience for couples or a small hang-out with friends and colleagues. Sofas are available opposite the floor-to-ceiling windows, perfect for those enjoying a warm conversation and still within comfortable viewing distance to the lounge area between the bar and dining area, where live music or DJs play happening pop, hip hop, or R&B tunes every evening.

From inventive cocktails to premium spirits, there’s never any shortage of drinks over at Flow. One of the signature cocktails is The Godfather, a sweet yet potent concoction that uses homemade bitters to complement a base of spirits that exudes the classic charm of the 1970s. The perfect companion to accompany any premium cigar, this one is an offer you can’t refuse. Another must-try is the Dark & Stormy, which is based on Gosling’s black seal rum topped with ginger beer and with an added lime and homemade ginger candy to garnish – the perfect remedy for washing your work day weariness away. Those looking for a stronger punch can choose from Flow’s vast spirits selection, which includes premium selections such as the Singleton Single Malt Scotch Whisky Glen Ord or the Singleton Single Malt Scotch Whisky Signature.

The culinary offering at Flow is carefully crafted, highly relatable comfort food with its own unique twist. “Food-wise, we are offering dishes that are suitable for the dynamic lifestyle of any respectable business person, yet relevant to culinary hunters looking for the next food adventure. Originality and superior taste are our primary aim,” explained Jimmy. This spells specialized Asian fare as well as classic international cuisines the likes of grilled meaty goodness, blissful pastas, burgers and sandwiches, and a number of tempting desserts.

Some of the items you absolutely must not miss include the Jalapeno Stuffed Fish Cake, a complex combination of herbs and spices absorbed by tasty white meat stuffed inside a fresh jalapeno; the Old Skool Burger, which plates charcoal-grilled homemade beef patty on freshly grilled bun topped with Emmental cheese, caramelized onions served with crispy string fries; or the Deconstructed Beef with Salted Egg and Mashed Potato Puree, which serves premium grade beef cooked to perfect tenderness with a rich salted egg puree.
