Introducing Cafe Unju'an & iLegal Library

Unju'an Cafe/iLegal Library

Although I don't drink coffee but I always love the smell of coffee in a cozy coffee shop accompanied by my favorite books and good music, wow....such a piece of heaven. Hence having a cafe on my own was also one of the wishlists.

I flashed back a bit. Back to several months ago when my partners (in our law firm) & I  thought that having an office in Kuningan area was not nice anymore. Its crazzy traffic slowly  killed us and we just realized that it's time for us to make our move. Moving somewhere else. Leaving all this hustle and bustle and finding a more peaceful office space.

And one day one of my partners found this cozy house in Kebayoran Baru area. Located in the residences area surrounded by lots of nice cafes and restaurants, we thought this was it. We negotiated with the owner and decided to rent it for the next  two years.
The first program at iLegal Library was Book Discussion

This was the first time for our law office to be located in a house instead of tall buildings since for the past nine years we always rented office space in Kuningan area. So...yes, we needed to adapt, to do lots of renovation and to shop for many furniture and stuffs.
You can also karaoke here!

We then thought to do something as our legacy.  Yep, we've been working for more than 20 years so it's not only works then. We must do something different. We decided to have a complete yet nice legal library that will provide law books for anyone needs it. However we realized that library is not a popular place for Indonesian therefore we need to combine this library with something. 
or have a family gathering

One quite afternoon a friend of us thew his idea to open a cafe in our library. We were speechless and could only say, WOW. It's true what Paulo Coelho said, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.

That's how one of my dreams came true. Finally, the cafe is there. Next to our office. I can always visit it to work/read/have meetings/daydream/chat or just sit there and do nothing.    
Still need more books to fill in the bookshelf

So...if you guys happen to be around Kebayoran Baru/Wolter Monginsidi/Blok S/Pasar Santa/Ciragil and around, please do drop by at Cafe Unju'an. You can enjoy our coffee/tea/chocolate and some snacks. We also rent the place for private meeting/gathering/book launching/karaoke, etc for limited 15 persons (yup,,,it's just a small but COZY cafe). Btw the name Unju'an is from Javanese. It has several meaning but for this cafe we think we want to relate it with 'something served' (hidangan). We have three baristas and they are college students who have passion in dealing with coffee. Salute to these young people.

All in all, we'll be waiting for your visit:))
