As a staunchly Muslim city, with temperatures hovering in the nineties, a proper grown-up drink can be a little difficult to find. However on the first floor second floor to some of the Cafe Batavia, located as it is on the corner of the main square of the Kota, and supremely capable of addressing the problem is The Winston Churchill Bar. Voted one of the top ten bars in the world about 15 years ago by one publication, it is a lovingly recreated slice of a bygone era; it's photo covered walls redolent of white dinner jackets, potted palms, Somerset Maugham and gin slings. A Bintang can come in a man-sized pint, not the piddling little bottles they force upon you in less enlightened joints elsewhere and it's placed firmly upon a long darkwood bar behind which uniformed bar tenders mix cocktails, pour wine and attend to the drinking mans and womans every whim efficiently and cheerfully.
