Good times @Chavadi, Bannerghatta Road

Chavadi is a beautiful place tucked away from the hustle bustle of the city and the ever busy Bannerghatta Road. If you are looking for a quiet rooftop place with quirky cocktails and yummy food, this is where you should go.

This week, after an afternoon movie in JP Nagar, I suggested this place for a late lunch and snacks. So after braving traffic on bannerghatta road, we reached here and I must say this was worth all the traffic.

Harry’s Bar + Cafe, Koramangala

Looking for super-boozy drinks with some seriously good food? Head to Harry’s Bar & cafe in Koramangala. I had been to their Whitefield outlet before and loved that too, but now I think I’m slightly biased towards this one.

We usually stay in on Friday nights, thanks to the mad traffic outside. But this Friday, after a restaurant goofed up our home delivery order, we headed out for dinner. And as luck would have it, we didn’t get any table in Fenny’s and Social.

I had Harry’s also on my mind, so we finally went there and bingo! Got a table immediately. The place had booming music and was almost packed. Well, almost πŸ™‚

Whitefield Social, Phoenix Market City

Loved and hated this place at the same time! It’s like a slightly upmarket dhaba that serves excellent food and beverages at low prices, but you can’t be finicky about hygiene here. You’d be spoilt for choices of Β both food and beverages, since they serve everything from chakhna (titbits like salted peanuts, fried moong dal etc), nachos, baos with quirky fillings to biryani and much more.

The first time we came here, there was a long queue. The next time we were there, it was closed due to prohibition 😦 Today was our lucky day and we got a table. They have some seating outside, but it was way too hot, so we chose to sit in. There was no one at the reception and none of the servers seemed interested in showing us a table, so we found a place ourselves and settled in.

Punjabi delights at Made in Punjab, UB City

We were ravenous after visiting pandals in Ulsoor and Jayamahal Extn. For dinner, we both wanted to have North Indian food, and I suggested we try out the much hyped Farzi Cafe. We reached UB City, but unfortunately the place was packed and there was no hope of getting a table.

We had started walking towards the other eateries in the courtyard, when my eyes fell upon “Made in Punjab“. This is also a brainchild of Kalra family and I remembered reading about it a couple of days back.

District 6, Malleshwaram

After coming so far to Malleshwaram, and getting disappointed at High Ultra Lounge, we decided to try out District 6, which is on the ground floor of Sheraton Grand. I had seen pictures of its swanky interiors and read rave reviews.

It’s a microbrewery with German brews, and rustic wooden interiors with a modern touch. We reached around 10 and the place was buzzing. Their receptionist promptly got us a table inside.

High Ultra Lounge, Malleshwaram

Braving the city traffic and going to High Ultra Lounge in Malleshwaram this Saturday was a feat in itself!

This lounge is located on the 31st floor of World Trade Center, and is touted as the highest sky lounge in South India. It took us more than 1.5 hours to reach the place, and was it worth? Read on.

I had made a reservation through Zomato, and reached an hour late (thanks to Bangalore traffic!). The receptionist said they had tables available and I heaved a sigh of relief.

Finally a 5/5 @Windmills Craftworks, Whitefield

If you are a Bangalorean and haven’t visited this place, you are missing something πŸ™‚ I can’t stop gushing about this place, so this review is a long one πŸ˜€

This place had been on my to-visit list for a while, but it’s really far from my place (somewhere around 23 kms), so it was still pending. We finally got a chance to visit this paradise on a weekday. Thankfully it didn’t take us very long for reaching this place, but a long time to come back home.

It is spread across 6th and 8th floor of a particular building in EPIP zone, Whitefield. We both instantly fell in love with the place, the moment we stepped in. It is classy and not at all loud in terms of decor and music.
