Flo Lounge
by: Galuh Wulandarie

Being the latest addition in the Jakarta 's lounge line-up, I was curious and wanted to check out the Flo Lounge. Last Friday night, I and the enthusiastic SD team went to this lounge, located in the Bellagio Boutique Mall, Kuningan. Dazzling Innocent was the theme that night, a closing party before the Moslem's fasting month.

With an apartment complex next to the boutique mall, security guards were milling all over the place, from the minute you stepped out of the car up to the lounge's doorstep. Couldn't help but feel like a Hollywood star with police escorts walking beside me. As I arrived at the 1 st floor (where the lounge is), I was welcomed by a red carpet, which led us to the lounge. After a few turns, a leopard-print reception table complete with the Flo's reception staff ushered us inside.

Colorful laser beams forming Flo light up the main entrance as you step in. The place is rather small and as a first-timer to this lounge, I found the décor rather disconcerting; the black-tiled floor and walls were accentuated by a white sphere-like installation that resembled a planet to me. A huge crystal chandelier loomed overhead, along with a white marble bar and a number of sofas behind the dance floor, adjacent to large picture windows. The monitor behind the DJ and the plasma TV screens were all tuned in to the Fashion Channel.

We sat on the sofa adjacent to the bar, where bottles of liquor were on display on a wooden shelf. “We will expand the place and make it wider. So during this month-long holiday, we will renovate the place and will knock down this bar,” says Ms. Angeline Laura, the Public Relations Officer of the Flo Lounge. Afterwards, three dancers dressed as angels complete with wings performed for about 15 minutes, grooving to some sexy beats. During fasting month, all night clubs and lounges are closed in keeping with the revered Moslem ritual. Even though it was a closing party, the place was not that packed; young executives were the lounge's clientele that evening.

The resident DJs, including DJ Nanda (new jazz and broken beat tunes), spin on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. As for DJ Harry (garage and classic disco), he's on board during Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. Too bad we came to the lounge after 10 pm, as it has live music from 7 pm to 10 pm daily except during Sundays. There are live salsa beats on Mondays, chart-topping songs on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and jazz melodies on Thursdays, with the ensemble d'etudiant. One can even have dinner while waiting for the performance. A wide array of Japanese food, such as yakiniku udon, salmon teriyaki, and assorted tempura are served complete with finger foods like calamari and French fries. I had the Red Carpet (a mix of 6 liquors), which was plain and too diluted. I had to shell out about Rp 70,000 for that drink.

The music that they were playing that night was disappointing as well. A lounge is a place that has soulful and soothing chill-out music; it played loud dance beats instead. Maybe we dropped in on the wrong night, or maybe it was the DJ. One thing's for sure; it would be quite a while before I visit this lounge again. The place has yet to find its natural flow.
