Exquisite Taste - - Best Bar : Jakarta -

Of­fer­ing a sump­tu­ous view of Jakarta's ci­tyscape, Hen­shin at The Westin Jakarta claims its spot as one of the city's glitzi­est bars. Oc­cu­py­ing the three high­est lev­els of The Westin Jakarta, guests can ac­cess Hen­shin via a ded­i­cated high­speed lift to the side of the ho­tel's lobby.

Hen­shin's dé­cor is a mar­riage of Ja­panese charms and con­tem­po­rary de­sign sen­si­bil­i­ties. The first-floor en­trance of Hen­shin fea­tures a play­ful art piece of trans­par­ent sake jars, which re­fracts the shim­mer­ing light dis­plays to the chill house mu­sic. An el­e­gant wel­come bar of­fers vis­i­tors whim­si­cal tip­ples to start off their evening, try the lovely Nikkei-in­spired Issei. One can take in the dizzy­ing bird's eye view in the out­door pa­tio area, and or­der a Nikkei-style ap­pe­tiser such as the tira­di­tos to pair with the mag­nif­i­cent at­mos­phere.

The sec­ond floor of Hen­shin is the main din­ing area, in which guests are en­cour­aged to in­ter­act with the chefs work­ing in the open kitchen sta­tions. The menu is cu­rated by Ha­jime Ka­suga and his team, a Peru­vian na­tive and a mas­ter of Nikkei cui­sine. Try his spe­cial­ties such as the ce­viche and the grilled oc­to­pus. The top and fi­nal floor is re­served for pri­vate din­ing rooms for guests look­ing to throw an in­ti­mate gath­er­ing.
