Molly Malone's Irish Pub
Following the success of Morphy's, the bar's owners opened Molly Malone's 2012, with a vision of expanding the Irish pub across Jakarta. With its decor, dark wood furniture and fixtures, this is a decidedly Irish pub and feels a world away from its Senayan environs.
Split into two parts (a cozy, seated area where one can watch sports or have an Irish meal; or watch a live band or host events a room over), this bar feels like a slice of Ireland. The location draws in neighbourhood professionals and supports various sports teams such as the rugby, football, pool and gaelic football teams who all consider the pub a home from home.
