The Reading Room

Comfy Book Lounge

The Reading Room Jakarta

Stacks of book, free WiFi and good coffee should give you enough reason to spend some me-time at Reading Room after dropping off your children at school.

Owned by the former QB Bookstore owner, Reading Room fills their shelves with a huge book collection that can make you sit still for at least a couple of hours.

Book lovers will also love their events including book discussions with famous authors. In addition, the Reading Room is also trying to appeal to film-lovers. A screening room, which can accommodate up to 20 people, is located near the stairs on the second floor. Party flicks….yes, please!

Why Little Steps Loves It:​

A perfect hub for a break - enjoy your book, get a little work done, and catch a flick.

Who It's Perfect For:

Older kids and parents who crave me-time.

What Else:​

Weekdays are the best time to visit this city’s gem, as weekends, especially after office hours, tend to get a wee bit crowded and noisy.
