happiness is cheap Jun 10, 2012
Melly's Garden is one of my favorite places to hang out. nothing luxurious and sophisticated about this place. the place is old and small, with plastic tables and chairs outdoor, and the wooden chairs and tables indoor. the waiter and the waitresses wear cowboy hats and they are really friendly. there are some bookcases in the corner of the room, and you can borrow the books. televisions hanging on the wall and you can watch tv while you drink or while you're eating. the bar has two signature drinks. first is "kebunku" or in english "my garden" a steel bucket filled with ice cubes and there are 7 shots in it. each shot has a different level of alcohol. my friends and i usually call the strongest one "the meanest". it's only 25.000 rupiah (2.5 dollars)! there is also "balonku" or in english "my balloons" the 5 glass tubes filled with different drinks. the place is really crowded on the weekend, you can make reservation in the morning :)

Late Night Hangout, Beers and Friends May 29, 2012
This is the place where i and my friends use to hang out.

The costs of all drinks n dine are affordable, and they would serve you with welcoming snacks such as popcorn or peanuts (refill). You can have beers, cocktails, and their special beverages, Balonku Ada Lima (translated into i have 5 balloons... 5 test tubes which consist of 5 different color and taste of alcoholic drink in a basket, and Mellys milk shake (fresh milk with whip creams n chocolate).

The place is so homy, with TVs and variant types of seats. they also provide small library and some game gadgets (Uno card, chess, etc). you could pick to sit inside or outside the bar. they also serve wide parking lot. Every Friday and Saturday night, this place is crowd with a lot of customers (both local and tourists).

The location is quiet strategic, you just need to take several minutes to walk to jl. Jaksa and jl. Sabang (another hang out place to dine or to stay), or you can spend the late night chitchatting and havin supper in mc. Cafe, or you can watch movie in Jakarta Theater.

Cheap Beer at the Garden Feb 18, 2011
Always love Melly's Garden! I think it is one of the oldest bar and restos I have always gone to. Melly's is located at the center of Jakarta where the nightlife is always on just walking distance from the famous backpackers' hostels area in Jalan Jaksa.

what I like about Melly's is that it is very simple, the terrace of a house was designed to be a small and homie restaurant where most of the young people (but not so young, they probably do not even know if this place even exists) hang out or browsing as they have free wifi.

The food is not great, it is okay but the most important thing is that the beer is cheap here unlike most places in Jakarta to hang out, LOL.

If you love sports, you might wanna enjoy watching the matches here. They have lots of large LCD TVs where they play most of the sport games.

Love the place, gotta get here early as usually at 7pm or above, you won't get any seats.

Melly's Bar Mar 21, 2010
Melly’s is one of the oldest bars in Jakarta; a typical kind of bar that you might find in Bali. Found in the backpacker’s area of Jakarta, near Jaksa Street and Sarinah (an old mall, at the 24 hours tourist area), which is always hopping 24/7. They have a big screen TV where you can watch soccer, drink beer, and visit with friends in a casual setting. Asri, Alice, Rizky, and I came here after our meet-up at Foodism. This is also where I had my first Bintang beer. They also serve up food, snacks, and appetizers all at reasonable prices. They have free wifi if you bring your laptop, and are open from 11:00 am until you drop! If you are at one of the many hostels nearby, this is a great place within walking distance to hang out.

@JakartaTruth
Well, to each his own opinion, I suppose. I did not experience the hell you describe. Maybe your scene is better suited for a night out playing bingo in the old folk's home.
At any rate, reviews are the opinions of real people who visit real places. As such, their opinions hold as much truth as your opinion (if not more).

Oldest? No. Noisiest, possibly. Opened 4 years ago, this WAS a pleasant place to drink until the management decided that deafening music was the way forward. Deeply unpleasant loud music coupled with a propensity for allowing the owner's friends to take over the place by shouting at the top if their voices makes for a horrible night out. Those people are ignorant animals and is symptomatic of the decline of a decent place into a shout-at-your-friends nepotistic hell. The positive reviews are well out-of-date. Used to be good. Avoid now.
