Star Deli: Sentul at night
Star Deli, Bukit Sentul, is an off-shoot of Star Deli Kemang. Owned and opperated by Scott Gregory and his very able team. Star Deli in BS is smaller than the Jakarta counterpart, but the staff are just as friendly and attentive. Food is mainly European...huge burgers, Pizza, Nachos...and from 5-7 the only happy hour in Sentul. Popular with expats and the Harley boys in the weekend. The beer is cold and the place friendly...what more could you ask for?

OH LAL LA CAFE: Patisserie et café Francais
Bogor is a very European city. It has some
special places where it is nice to relax.
One evening when walking we heard music...
life singing , songs from the first halve of last
century. A sadé like voice. We were in the mood
to sit down and have a drink.
Next thing we found out was that it was a french
patisserie. Whatever that means over here...
but if you haven't been near a real croissant
since weeks. Anyway it tasted really nice.
The singing made me dream and the really
pritty lady singer kept on throwing warm smiles
in our direction that went excellent with the
(maybe that was because we were the only
audience that was really listening with
In the garden there is a private room to
sit with a beautiful view. Often there are
little concerts ;candle light dinners ,
live music...acoustic bands.
Kapulasan Cafe: Tea-break and gallery
Bogor is not a big city. But have a tea-break or hang-out with friends waiting the nightfall is cool. One of my fave place here is Kapulasan Cafe --which we can walk and seeing the gallery in between drink tea or cappuccino. This place also nearby Pia Apple Pie.

-: MUSIC AND DANCE
NIGHT LIFE? It does exist in the form of music and dance and disco in one or two locations. Ask locally about which places are protected by the strongest faction of the army.
Fighting among army/police factions is not unknown. Go with an Indonesian if possible. Crime has been rising in Indonesia. But, most of the time you will be safer than in the UK. In most neighbourhoods, the local people keep an eye on each other and stamp hard on troublemakers. Persistent criminals sometimes get beaten up and killed. Most crime is committed by members of the armed forces, the same people that allegedly run the various rackets.
