Cocktail Bar Waiter

An exciting cocktail in one hand, a surprising Asian bite in the other. Guests enjoy the panoramic view of the IJ and move to the rhythmic sounds of our DJs.

You are the cocktail waiter and host/hostess in our sky bar on the top floor of Hotel Jakarta. Here Amsterdam and Indonesian Java merge into a unique vibe, relaxed and temperamental. Guests enjoy your served 'work of art' and the phenomenal view. Not on the Javanese tea plantations like the volcano of the same name on Java, but on the IJ and the lively center of Amsterdam. cheers!
