There are times when quaint cafes and rustic microbreweries just don’t cut it. This was one such weekend when I was yearning for some booming music & dim lights, and moreover it had been a while since we visited a pub.
So this Saturday we decided to go to Tilt. It’s a gastropub located in Koramangala 5th Block with excellent F&B choices and great service.
I made a reservation through Zomato and we reached there just a little after eight. The place has two different sections of seating. Outer one is more like a casual lounge with not so loud music. The inner section has a small dance floor and is split into different seating areas. It has just the perfect kind of dim lighting.
We were lucky and got a cozy couch upstairs that had a good view of almost the entire place. Their menu is pretty impressive and it took me a while to decide my order. We eventually settled on deer hunter, bira white and Irish nachos. Service was excellent throughout the evening, even when the place was packed.
My deer hunter arrived looking pretty, but I can’t say the same about its taste. It was a much milder version of mojito and I also found it a tad too sweet. Nachos were supposed to be house made, but turned out to be out-of-the-packet kind. The toppings consisted of cheese and salsa and tasted alright.
Music was drab until it got past nine, when it eventually picked up and the DJ started playing some actual songs. So we decided to stay back for some more time and got another round of drinks- Jack went crazy(Jack Daniels based cocktail), cement mixer and a portion of honey chilly vegetables.
Jack went crazy was excellent, after all who doesn’t like JD 🙂 Cement mixer turned out to be a shooter with vodka and Baileys, and unfortunately I am not much a shooter lover. It was tasty though, but I wanted an actual cocktail and decided to get a Tilted LIT.
Tilted LIT was served with the usual five spirits and cola in a wooden tray that looked more like a chemistry experiment 😀 It was delicious and stiff, just the way I like 🙂
Honey chilly vegetables were delicious. It was a platter of batter fried vegetables rolled in honey chilly sauce and was accompanied by a mayonnaise based dip. We both quite liked it.
The DJ played some foot-tapping Bollywood numbers too after eleven. We tried getting down to the dance floor but there was literally not even an inch of space left there 🙂 So we got back to our table and decided to stay for one last round. We asked for an old fashioned, a mojito(I decided not to experiment much) and a portion of mushroom cheese balls.
Mojito was excellent and I highly recommend it. It was not too sweet and had the perfect amount of lime and mint. Old fashioned was potent and a perfect drink to end the evening. I would suggest sticking to the classics here rather than experimenting too much with the drinks 🙂
Mushroom cheese balls were really good. Considerably big mushrooms filled with cheese and crumb fried, what’s not to like!
Do try out this place if you are looking for nice ambiance, nice cocktails and a dance floor(something not so common in the city). The prices are not so high for cocktails and food. I would also also like to mention their loos that were spick and span, which was commendable given the amount of crowd.
Note: Do try to make it before 8:30 though, if you want one of the couches upstairs.
