We all know the saying, “Time flies when you’re having fun?” is absolutely true, so instead let’s shake up our week with some music and remind ourselves that Fridays and Saturdays aren’t the only nights of the week for cutting loose and getting out of the house. Here are our favorite mid-week music spots to get the job done!
W_Music @ The Goods Diner
Every other Thursday at The Goods Diner in SCBD, The W_Music presents a curated and cool collection of resident and guest DJs starting from 7pm. Usually playing an eclectic mix of funk, jazz, and the unexpected from around the world, it is the best way to spend Thursday night. Sipping a spectacular As Good As Ginger cocktail with your buddies with some sweet beats, we’ll say that’s worth looking forward to.
W_Music, The Goods Diner. Fairgrounds, Lot 14. Jl. Jenderal Sudirman, Kav. 52-53, SCBD, Jakarta Selatan. Every other Thursday from 7pm.
Abenk Alter @ Pao Pao
Playing tributes to his childhood favorites, Abenk Alter will be performing every Thursday in March. After releasing his premier single in February and performing at Java Jazz recently, singer and songwriter, will be gracing Pao Pao with his positive, jazzy voice covering all-time faves from Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, and more!
Pao Pao, Jl. Senopati no. 16, Kebayoran Baru, South Jakarta, p. 62-21/2751-0698. Thursdays 9pm.
Amigos Tex-Mex Restaurant
Between their Kemang location and their outlet at Bellagio Mall, Amigos Tex-Mex Restaurant has live music all week long! Kicking off on Tuesday (and again on Friday) at their Bellagio outlet is Salsa Night, complete with live music and even dance lessons starting from 6:30pm. Other live music includes a county-western evening and a Top 40 night.
Amigos Tex-Mex Restaurant, Bellagio Mall Mega Kuningan, Jalan Lingkar Mega Kuningan, Kuningan, South Jakarta, p. 62-21/3006-6558. Hours: Mon-Thurs 8am-12am, Fri 8am-2am, Sat 8:30am-2am, Sun 8am-12am.

Icons @ The Hard Rock Café
Cover bands get a bad rep. There are so many bands ruining great songs out there but Icons night at The Hard Rock Café (they should know a thing or two about music) is bringing a fun, fresh twang to Top 40 hits. In March and April, they will be performing every Tuesday night at the Hard Rock Café at Pacific Place!
The Hard Rock Café, Pacific Place Mall, ground floor, Jl. Jenderal Sudirman kav, 54-55, SCBD, South Jakarta, p. 62/21-5797-3055. Icons play March and April every Tuesday at 9pm.
