De Hooi is a European styled pub in the Pondok Indah area of South Jakarta that enjoys an extraordinary strong following of regular customers- both expats living and working in the area, and also a younger local party goer set that enjoy the “anything goes” atmosphere that evolves during the course of the night.
The pub has the typical decor expected in such an establishment- lot’s of dark timber panelling and bar furniture, dimmed lighting and all kinds of memorabilia decorations on the walls.
There are two main levels- the ground floor main bar area, and the upstairs sports bar. Outdoor tables and seating are at the rear on the ground floor, and on the front balcony upstairs. The upstairs sports bar is a more spacious area than downstairs with a pool table in one corner and a long timber bar running most of the length of one of the side walls. Numerous large screen LCDs are installed for sports viewing.
The kitchen at De Hooi is open all day from breakfast time through lunch and later for dinner, and serves up all the “pub favourites” type dishes- steaks, bangers & mash, English Breakfasts, Roast Beef, Chicken & Beef Burritos and Taquitos, Clam Chowder, etc.. All the usual drinks are on offer from the bars- cold draught beers, local and imported bottled beer, premium spirits and cocktails, and wines.
There are popular weekly promotions on selected nights- details are listed below.
And the Bi-Weekly “Bugils Newsletter” is always a good read for staying up to date with what’s on at the sister establishments of De Hooi in Jakarta- Eastern Promise in Kemang, the Cazbar in Kuningan, Cafe De Burse at SCBD.
