De Luca

Exquisite Taste - - After Dinner Nightlife -

Ahaunt for lovers of cock­tails and fine Ital­ian cui­sine, De Luca has been a main­stay des­ti­na­tion for Jakarta’s hob­by­ist bar hop­pers. Lo­cated right at the Palm Gate of the idyl­lic and el­e­gant Plaza Se­nayan, De Luca in­vites ca­sual pa­trons with its cool clas­sic Euro­pean vibe, de­li­cious hand­crafted cock­tails and rus­tic Ital­ian com­fort food.

A long stretch of mar­ble bar top oc­cu­pies the heart of the es­tab­lish­ment, ac­com­pa­nied by chic bar stools for pa­trons who are keen to be seated close to the ac­tion. Banks of racks brim­ming with a va­ri­ety of lim­ited-edi­tion spir­its and a se­lec­tion of mix­ers oc­cupy the back of the bar. First-timers get­ting ac­quainted are urged to browse the list of De Luca’s spe­cialty cock­tails – a mix­ture of clas­sic cock­tails with in­ven­tive flair cour­tesy of the bar’s head mixol­o­gist Robby, win­ner of Di­a­geo and Belvedere mar­tini week. Lovers of Ital­ian food can en­joy clas­sic trat­to­ria fare such as piz­zas and pas­tas. For purists, the margherita is a must-order dish – a clas­sic tomato, buf­falo moz­zarella and basil pair­ing on a crisp house-made pizza. For pasta, the penne with wood-smoked scal­lop and let­tuce comes highly rec­om­mended.
