at InterContinental Jakarta Pondok Indah

 

Jakarta, Indonesia (July 2019) – Hailing all the way from Peru, Chef Jaime Arbulu joined
InterContinental Jakarta Pondok Indah in presenting an exclusive 6-course gala dinner held on 12 July 2019 at The Studios.

H.E. Mr. Julio Cardenas, the Ambassador of Peru to Indonesia, opened the evening with a welcoming speech. “This has been an annual agenda that strengthens the relationship between Peru and Indonesia, and we are pleased to share our culture that is celebrated in the form of culinary,” he added.

A delectable set menu was commenced by ‘salmon cevichero’ and ‘asparagus of viru’ as starters. The epicurean journey then continued with the succulent ‘seafood parrilleros’ before being freshened by ‘lemon sherbet’ to cleanse the palate. Peruvian authentic ‘magret of northern duck’ was served along the traditional music performance, as ‘passion fruit semifreddo’ completed the delightful feast.

The event marked as the beginning of the “Peruvian Delight” promotion series at InterContinental Jakarta Pondok Indah, filled with Peruvian special buffet, wine pairing dinner and cooking classes,

The Bar Society at InterContinental Jakarta Pondok Indah is Back! This Summer, By The Pool
 

Jakarta, Indonesia (August 2019)InterContinental Jakarta Pondok Indah was gearing up to launch a second Bar Takeover event dubbed The Aqua Pool Party. With a change of pace and scenery, the hotel shifted from the previous mysterious allure of a speakeasy into a luxurious poolside paradise. Kiki Moka, head bartender of the Union group, returned to craft his signature cocktails alongside house mixologist Baonk. The event took place on August 2, 2019 from at the Aqua Lounge & Pool on level 8. With this second installment, guests were able to discover a vibrant and tropical evening filled with good company, world-class drinks, enticing food, and sensational entertainments.

As the sun set on the week and Friday night began, guests enjoyed the refreshing blends of mixologist maestro Kiki Moka.  His staple creations are not only known for being uniquely exotic but also innovative. As Indonesia's First World Class representative and Jakarta bar veteran, Kiki wasn't shy to experiment and added his own personal twist to a drink, carefully infusing layers and a story that left an unforgettable experience. Accompanying him with upbeat tunes was DJ Nathan along with performances by the phenomenal FDJ Tira Haze and DJ Rohin.

Either relaxing weekend mood by lounging on cozy day beds or bean bags by the pool, everyone caught a whiff of the aromatic outdoor BBQ and taste the flavors of freshly grilled kebabs and wraps, balanced with wholesome power bowls and delectable ice cream before grabbing drinks by the cocktail bar for signature rum and tequila concoctions with a tropical twist. The evening was upgraded with a poolside VIP bottle service complete with an allocated premium area and other exclusive benefits.

Complementing the sultry summer ambiance were two rounds of fashion shows lead by Udaka, a clothing brand for swim surf wear based in Bali and designed by Yunita Harun. The different tones and prints incorporated are inspired by colors found in sunny skies, beautiful beaches and ocean views. The Bar Society has been a continuous event held by InterContinental Jakarta Pondok Indah.
