Bourbon & Beef at Bacchus Bar (AYANA Midplaza, Jakarta)

Bacchus Bar is one of the restaurants located at the AYANA Jakarta (or formerly known as Intercontinental Hotel). They currently have special event called Bourbon and Beef pairing in which guests are invited to choose from a premium selection of fine bourbon, which will be paired with a beautifully prepared cut of beef to truly satisfy the well-earned hunger after a long day of business meetings.


The interior itself is decorated like a fusion of modern bar with wine cellar displayed inside the bar. It was fully equipped with dim lighting and keep in mind that people are allowed to smoke at Bacchus Bar. Oh and I have to tell you beforehand that I'm not a big fan of alcohol and bourbon, but I'll try my best to describe the taste of each drink!

Let's get started with their food (and bourbon!)

Oxtail Croquette & Wild Turkey

The Oxtail Croquette was perfect with a crispy outer layer and soft filling. It was served along with cheese sauce and this one is good to be paired with Wild Turkey, which has hint of alcohol and citrus flavor.

Philly Cheese Steak & Whiskey Negroni

Philly Cheese Steak is one of my favorite food and I was truly satisfied with their creation. It was served along with fries and cheese sauce. They were being pretty generous with the meat and the cheese which was good. The pairing was Whiskey Negroni which has a quite strong alcohol flavor (for me) and definitely not a ladies drink.

BBQ Beef Ribs & Single Barrel O.T.R

The BBQ Beef Ribs was beautifully presented along with onion ring and caramelized orange. It tasted pretty good with a hint of sweetness from the sauce. This one was paired with Single Barrel O.T.R which was pretty nice but quite strong.

Bourbon Tenderloin & Aromatic Manhattan

Bourbon Tenderloin was paired along with Aromatic Manhattan, a bourbon with a smoked rosemary (literally) which gives off nice scent. The tenderloin itself was pretty good and it was pretty good to be paired with those strong Aromatic Manhattan.

Beef Cheek Bourguignon & Good Sour Day

Beef Cheek Bourguignon was served along with a bed of sweet potato puree and sauteed mushrooms. It tasted pretty great and I'm loving the sweet potato puree! This one was paired along with Good Sour Day, probably the lightest drink among all of other drinks here and I love how it had hint of sourness which will cleanse your palate.

Oh and aside all of those Bourbon and Beef pairing, they will also have Scotch and Cheese promotion in September 2017, here is the teaser picture for you:

Overall, I had a great dinner and drink at Bacchus Bar, their food tasted pretty great, the drinks was good, the service was great and the place is nice. I bet this promotion will be great for those who likes to taste good bourbon and beef with friends or colleagues. Last but not least, thanks for having me and best of luck for Bacchus Bar!
