612 East, Indiranagar

There was a lot of hype about this new lounge called 612 East in Indiranagar, even before it started functioning. I had added it to my list and a couple of days back while crossing Indiranagar, we decided to drop by and check it out.

The lounge is spread across three floors and we straightaway went to the terrace. It was a beautiful area with comfortable couches and looked like the perfect place to unwind. But it was just around three in the afternoon and hot outside, so we descended to one of the lower floors and took a table inside.

Hammered, Cunningham Road

One of the good things about not going out of Bangalore over the long weekends is you don’t get stuck in traffic. And watching the infamous silk board almost empty in the middle of the day is a rare sight indeed 🙂

So last Friday we decided to go to Cunningham road and try out Hammered. We both used to work near Cunningham road many years back and loved that area. Hammered is located at the same spot where the very hip F-bar once used to be. It’s spread across two floors amidst beautiful greens and has plenty of seating.

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 :))
