The Beer Cafe, Koramangala

The Beer Cafe claims to be the largest beer chain in India and offers a plethora of choices for beers from all over the world. Of course the place is not just for enjoying beer, it does have a sizeable cocktail and food menu too.

The place is spacious and has a lazy vibe to it. There’s an outdoor section too, with beautiful garden furniture. I recently visited for lunch with a friend and had a nice time.

Bar bar, Phoenix Market City

Phoenix Market City is undoubtedly a delight for both shoppers and foodies. Bar bar is a new addition to the ever expanding list of fabulous eateries at this mall.

“Bar bar” translates to “frequently” in Hindi, or maybe it just refers to “bar”. I am going to assume it means “frequently” since I’d love to go there bar bar. 🙂

We dropped in for lunch after some frantic shopping and had really good food. The place was empty except for a couple of occupied tables. I guess not many people know about it yet.

Murphy’s Brewhouse, Domlur

Bangalore has its fair share of microbreweries, and after having visited quite a few of them I can say this place probably has one of the best brews(Windmills Craftworks still tops my list though :)).

The much awaited long weekend was finally here and after some convincing, Mr. H agreed to go towards the crowded end of intermediate ring road 🙂 He loathes the traffic towards Indiranagar, but thankfully it turned out to be smooth (thanks to the long weekend!).

The Biere Club, Whitefield

153 Biere Street is a picturesque address tucked away in Whitefield. The place has a microbrewery, couple of cafes, boutiques etc and has a certain old world charm to it. It feels like a different world altogether with beautiful brick lanes, victorian lights and antique wrought iron furniture.

I had seen some beautiful photos and reviews of the outlet of Biere Club here and decided to visit it over the weekend. I had been to the one on Lavelle road and liked the brews and food.

Smally’s Resto Cafe, Church Street

Looking for some yummy comfort food? Well, this is your place!

We landed here one hot sunny afternoon, hungry, tired and looking for cafes with parking places.

Smally’s is a small place with a sizeable menu on Church street. And it has valet parking!(we all know how hard it is to find a parking place in church street :))

Safe House, HSR

It’s funny(and incredible too!) when you see your partner knows you a bit too well 🙂 And mine knows that I get cranky if we spend the whole weekend at home 😀 So after spending most part of Saturday catching up stuff on Netflix, he suggested we check out ‘Safe House’ in HSR.

We made a reservation through Dineout and reached the place. It is located on outer ring road opposite to Pindi.

The decor is typical, with dim lighting, high chairs and a pool table in the middle. We got seated and started scanning through their menus. The first thing that I noticed was their pricing. I don’t think you can get such low priced cocktails at many places in the city. They have a good variety of beers as well, everything from Kingfisher draft to Stella Artois.

House of Commons, HSR

HSR is gradually becoming the new Koramangala with a slew of new restaurants, pubs and cafes. And this watering hole is a new addition to the area’s bustling food scene.
I was always curious about this place because of its name, and was very happy when Mr. H suggested it for lunch this weekend so that I could tick it off my list 😀

Their menu says the place is not named after the lower house of parliament in UK. It is called “House of Commons” in a more literal sense,  a place which welcomes anyone and everyone 🙂 The establishment is spread over two floors, with plenty of both indoor and outdoor seating.
