Located at the financial ring circling the famous Selamat Datang (Welcome) Statue about a 20-minute car ride (without traffic jam) from ITC Mangga Dua is the upscale Plaza Indonesia mall. This is one mega mall that tips the luxury scale to create a shopping scene that caters to every fancy and budget.
Doing a conjoin act with the Grand Hyatt, Plaza Indonesia is opened in the mid 80s with more shop space and offices added during a 2007 extension that turned Plaza Indonesia into one of the country’s top-of-the-line mixed-use development.
“Call me maybe?”
Plaza Indonesia is also home to the first Starbucks (opened in May 2002) in the country. This lady was nonchalant about us taking photos with the sign so I decided to ‘pose’ with her in the shot after giving up on waiting for her to move away. The outcome is rather hilarious!
Bvlgari, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Celine… the big brands in luxe are gathered at Plaza Indonesia that sees tai-tais arriving in chauffeured posh cars.
There’s also an in-mall amusement deck for kids… and those who refuses to grow up. LOL.
Brand shopping is not the only thing to do at Plaza Indonesia with funky boutique cafes and art-decor restaurants deserving eyeball time.
Even the mall’s food court is an interior design spectacle that melted ethnic elements from various cultures into a feast for the eyes and stomach.
Love this industrial-meets-wharf ceiling installation and other artistic detailing that turned Plaza Indonesia’s Urban Kitchen into a must-see attraction at the mall.
