SWEET CONNEXION. Whether you’re looking to sit down to a multi-course meal or simply relax after putting in a hard day’s work, you can easily do either (or both!) at one new convenient location: Wine Connexion and Dream Ultra Lounge (Plaza Indonesia, Jl. M.H. Thamrin no. 28-30, Jakarta; +62 21 2992 3999; dreamjakarta.com).
Sitting in the space previously occupied by Moovina, the aptly named Wine Connexion boasts one of the biggest wine collections in Jakarta, while Dream Ultra Lounge handles more hearty fare with an impressive spread of contemporary French dishes. Not that the latter is lacking in the spirits department, mind you. Or desserts, for that matter. Their wine-infused treats alone are worth a trip or two.
