Social House, Restaurant Bar Winepost, Jakarta…Design and ambience rocks but food and service sucks


Located in the upscale Harvey Nichols gourmet grocery store, the ultra chic Social House is acutally one of the hippiest venues in Jakarta. There’s an open-air bar with stunning views of the fountain on Plaza Indonesia’s roundabout and the surrounding cityscape. Well designed with balcoy with couches, low tables and sofa are arranged to create cozy areas. It is definitely designed to impress…after all it is part of the group behind Blowfish and Dragonfly.

That’s as far as the “wow” goes.

They serve Asian-European fusion dishes. My oxtail soup was extremely salty and the rest of the food was not spectcular either, sorry to say. We all aged significantly before our drinks arrive. The service was terribly s……..l……………o………….w.

Oh another thing. It was so smoky in non-smoking area, we needed oxygen masks.

Go hangout at this place, but remember, order a drink. Don’t eat. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…
