Nautilus Bar, nestled within the luxurious confines of Four Seasons Hotel Jakarta, is poised to introduce a tantalizing new drinking experience on February 21, 2024. This eagerly awaited event promises to transport guests on a flavorful voyage through Indonesia's illustrious Spice Trade era.

Under the masterful direction of Bar Manager Julian Brigget, previously acclaimed at Bar Trigona, Four Seasons Hotel Kuala Lumpur, Nautilus Bar is set to unveil a meticulously crafted menu that pays homage to Jakarta's historic Old Port, Sunda Kelapa. Here, from the 17th to the 19th centuries, spices from the Thousand Islands embarked on transformative journeys, leaving an indelible mark on global culinary cultures.

At the heart of Nautilus Bar's reinvention lies a profound celebration of four quintessential Indonesian spices: Pepper, Pandan, Cinnamon, and Nutmeg. Julian's vision for the new menu is nothing short of revolutionary, blending traditional flavors with contemporary mixology techniques to create a truly immersive and unforgettable experience.

Guests will have the opportunity to indulge in 16 meticulously crafted cocktails, each a testament to the rich tapestry of Indonesia's culinary heritage. From the bold and earthy notes of the Gatot, featuring Buffalo Trace Cacao Butter Whiskey and Black Pepper Rosso Vermouth, to the sweet and grassy magic of the P&J, showcasing Jackfruit Espolon Tequila and Pandan Pistachio Orgeat, there's something to entice every palate.

For those seeking a lighter alternative, Nautilus Bar offers an array of low-ABV cocktails and mocktails that promise to captivate the senses without overwhelming them. Whether you're a seasoned cocktail aficionado or a curious newcomer, Nautilus Bar invites you to embark on a journey of discovery, where each sip unveils a new facet of Indonesia's storied past.

In addition to its exquisite cocktail selection, Nautilus Bar presents a lineup of revamped classics infused with spice-infused accents. From the subtly sweet Old Fashioned to the fiery kick of the French 75, every drink is a testament to the bar's unwavering commitment to excellence and innovation.

Complementing the beverage offerings is a tantalizing selection of bar bites, inspired by flavors from Indonesia and beyond. From Sate Lilit Bali to XO Beef Sliders, each dish is carefully curated to elevate your drinking experience to new heights.

Designed to evoke the nostalgia of seafaring traditions, Nautilus Bar's ambiance is a fusion of nautical-inspired decor and curated artworks that pay homage to Jakarta's maritime history. Here, amidst the warm glow of dim lighting and the gentle hum of conversation, guests are invited to unwind, indulge, and create lasting memories.
