Great place to spend your time.
I travel to Jakarta frequently and it was always boring until I discovered B.A.T.S! Live band + Great music and drinks. Located at the Shangri-La Hotel, B.A.T.S is a good place to chill. The setting is unique and upmarket crowd. It's normally packed during the weekends. I must also say that there is a significant improvement in the staff attitude and service especially when Mr Paul became the manager. Elsa, was always wonderful. Employees and security very professional and friendlier. I recommend if you are in Jakarta visit B.AT.S at least once. A very a good place to be in.

The smoking is out of control
I have been visiting BATS since 1998. The Shangri La is my favourite hotel in the city so dropping downstairs for a gin and tonic was always a pleasure. However on my last trip the band was poor and worst of all was that all the working girls on one glass minimum budgets passed the evening smoking. There is no provision whatsoever for non-smokers. It was so bad that I had to leave. In 1998 there was a better class of individual in the bar. Twenty years later only those who can afford on drink and two packets of cigarettes are catered for. If passive cancer is your thing one can do no better than BATS.

Don’t go to this bar
I’m currently staying at the hotel on business and thought I would head down and have a drink in BAT bar. Don’t it’s a pick up joint full of prostitues and western men! Shangri la I’m surprised you’re not trying to me more up market.
