A little bit of history :
This building was built by architect Fritz Joseph Pinedo Pinedo (assisted by JJ van Dongen) in 1913.
On 1967, this place was named CCCL, it is the representative office of French Consulate General in Surabaya. After that, CCCL Surabaya moved in 2012, then the building was renovated in 2013 and is used by 1914 Surabaya until now.(www.1914surabaya.com)

Lobby & Information

First of all I want to tell you guys that 1914 is a huge place, it has restaurants and bars, 
and I will show all of them one by one to you ^^

A gentleman's indulgence, serving Surabaya's finest selection of cigars and tobacco products, along with a whisky bar, serving fine whiskeys, aged rums and cognacs. (www.1914surabaya.com)
You can go to the Habana Whiskey Bar straight from the lobby, it is located right next to the main entrance.
But unfortunately, when I came, it was still noon, the whiskey bar haven't opened yet, so I took this one photo from their website
This is the Whiskey Bar

It is so beautiful on the evening, and I think evening is the perfect time to chill or having your tea time here
Will be fun too at night, because of the live band, and the beers
But I'm afraid at night there will be a lot of mosquito

Right next to the garden, there is

Authentic Mexican cuisine by Mexican Chef Gerardo, and the best man-made margaritas in Indonesia,
