Dunno about pubs but Jakarta..just shoppings and if you like history, can goto the last BRT stop at Kota near Glodok and walk around the Dutch colonial district...Well..it such a pity they dun really upkeep this area properly
...If you hv the strenght, walk further to SUnda Kelapa Batvia port and watch the wooden cargo ship activities

If you're not staying long-term there, might as well prepaid min skype credit that last you for years.. (I bought US$10 since ~ 2007 and till now still ~ US$5 in a/c). Thereafter.. just call back from your hotel..and look for the hotel wth free WIFI - very usefull
jakarta abit like singapore rite. shopping mall only.
