The Reservoire, Koramangala

The Reservoire is a beautiful resto-bar located in Koramangala and is truly a reservoir of good food and drinks. It’s one of those places that serve multiple cuisines and manage to do justice to all of them. Both food and drinks menus are vast, and there are plenty of interesting cocktails available.

The place is spread across two (and possible terrace also) floors, has very simple interiors with exposed brick walls. There’s plenty of seating and open space, so the place doesn’t feel suffocating even when it’s packed. Music is decent, the DJ playing that day was a big Pitbull fan I guess 🙂

‘Cirkus’ is one of the newest watering holes in HSR Layout. The place is spread across multiple floors and offers great food and booze with pretty good service. Interiors are simple with lot of open space, perfect lighting and some quirky wall posters.

The menu has a little bit of everything: Indian, Thai, Chinese, Pizzas, Burgers etc. The cocktail menu too offers a good amount of choices.

Shift, HSR Layout

Shift is a beautiful lounge in HSR, located right next to House of Commons. It offers a co-working space along with a dive bar spread across three floors.

Both of us were quite taken with its open spaces and headed to the beautiful terrace seating. This area provides a lovely view of the busy streets around and the whole eatery.

Churchill’s, JP Nagar

Over the last weekend, the usually jam-packed city roads were quite peaceful. So we decided to brave the distance and go to this place called Churchill’s in JP Nagar for dinner. The photos looked gorgeous on Zomato and it was also listed among “Best bars & pubs”.

The pub is spread across the second floor of a building. Interiors here have that typical dim lighting, nice wood furniture and the place offers loads of F&B choices. Both of us were famished and quickly asked for a portion of butter garlic mushrooms, crispy corn, a Manhattan and Churchill’s Long John. Read on for how I liked the food and drinks.

Rural Blues, Sarjapur Road

“Rural Blues” was on my list since it opened, and last weekend Mr.H graciously agreed to go there for lunch(finally!) 😀 The place has a beautiful entrance which looks more like someone’s residence than a restaurant. They have some beautiful outdoor and rooftop seating, but both of them were booked for a private party that day.

Interiors are very simple and neat, and I liked the fact that they hadn’t crammed in too many tables. There’s a bar counter on one end and an open kitchen on the other.

Their food menu is vast and they have dishes from many cuisines, Indian, Thai, Italian to name a few. Bar menu has decent choices for cocktails and liquors, though I wish they had more choices for beers. We started off with our usual bira along with veg nachos and magic mushrooms.

The Colony Gastropub, HSR Layout

“The Colony Gastropub” is the newest watering hole in HSR and is a beautiful place to dine at. I took an immediate liking to this place which is spread across two floors and has terrace seating too. But we had to get a table on the lower floor since it was drizzling.

This floor looked like just the prefect place to unwind. I think not many people are aware of this lounge yet, so it was sparsely populated on a Saturday evening. We got a comfy couch by the window and started skimming through their menus.

Dak Bungalow, Whispering Willows, Zirakpur

Lots of new eateries have come up in Zirakpur since our last visit here. And the other day I found just the perfect place for a family dinner.

Dak Bungalow is a huge bungalow converted to a restaurant. In British India, dak bungalows were houses providing free accommodation to govt officials. They were also famous for their excellent food.

We reached the place at night, so not much of the garden area was visible. But from what I could see, the place looked beautiful. Interiors had a certain old world charm with ornate solid wood furniture and comfortable couches. Tables were spaced away from one another which was a good thing.
