As Jakarta enters a lockdown in the wake of the current COVID-19 pandemic, a significant number of food and beverage outlets have closed its doors for the sake of public health and safety. However, in response to the closures, many outlets have turned to online deliveries to continue to still serve their customers straight to their front doors. Impressively, bars have pivoted as well by turning their signature drinks into bottled cocktails that can be enjoyed in the comfort and safety of people’s homes.
For those looking for a delicious tipple to balance out the stressful work from home days as well as want to continue to support their favorite bars, here’s a list of 10 Jakarta bars serving bottled cocktails straight to your door:
