Koda is a newly opened Japanese speakeasy bar by Yutaka Nakashima, where cocktails are tailored specifically for the customers. The concept for this bar is to “find the exit to an entrance of the perfect drink”.

Located in Central Jakarta, it is a hidden gem where the facade exterior is raw and cold, blending with the surrounding finishes, while the interior is elegant. The main entrance door to the bar is designed in a way that it resembles an exit door. As the customers “exit” through the door, they find an entry to an elegant bar filled with velvet and leather couches and rich dark walnut wood interior, giving a warm and cozy feeling to the space. The contrasting design of the exterior and interior gives the customers a whole new grant entrance experience, as they enter the bar.
