Bangalore Brew Works, Residency Road

Last weekend we visited this beautiful microbrewery called “Bangalore Brew Works”, that had been on my list for ages(I think I say that about a lot of places :)). The place is located on the tenth floor of a commercial building on Residency Road and is a wonderful place to relax & unwind.

We had a reservation and were promptly shown to our table. The place has a very simple decor with solid wood furniture in rich colors. And, though most of the area gets a lovely breeze, there is a section with couches towards the edge of terrace which provides a stunning view of the city.

The Whitefield Arms, Whitefield

The Whitefield Arms is a colonial style pub located in The Waverly Hotel and is attached to VR Bengaluru mall. I was always intrigued by the name of this pub and it seems to have an interesting history indeed(read about it here).

The pub looks striking with dark wood furniture and a beautiful bar counter, black & white being the dominant colours everywhere. We were blown away by the beautiful patio seating and got seated outside to enjoy the lovely evening breeze.

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.

Koramangala Social, Koramangala

The recent alcohol ban seems to be really hard on some lounges, but Koramangala Social seems to be completely oblivious to it. I went to this outlet of Social on Saturday afternoon with a friend, and was quite surprised to see the place completely packed.

I was amazed at how beautiful and green the place looked. While Whitefield Social has more of a garage decor, this one kind of resembles a large greenhouse. There are beautiful plants all around and a big bar counter(now a mocktail/smoothie counter) in the middle.

Caffe Pascucci, HSR

I absolutely love cheery bright eateries, where I can see and admire what I am eating 🙂 And Cafe Pascucci is one such beautiful cafe in HSR.

This Friday night, breaking our usual tradition of not stepping out into the mad traffic, we went to HSR for a late dinner. I had crossed this cafe loads of times, but never got around to visiting it until this weekend. We reached around 10:30 p.m., and the place was completely packed. We had to rush for cover as it starting pouring out of nowhere!

Tito’s lane, Goa

Visit to Goa is never quite complete without enjoying its nightlife 🙂 Last time it was Club Cabana, and this time around, we thought of doing some pub hopping in Tito’s lane.

After dropping parents off at home, four of us reached Tito’s around 10 p.m. Entry fees per couple is INR 1000 and you can redeem it against any F&B. The place looks beautiful with a variety of seating. The decor is charming with perfect lighting, elegant furniture and looks like a perfect place to unwind. Dance floor is in a separate section, if you want to shake a leg. Continue reading

Baithak, HSR Layout

Baithak translates to “living room” or “lounge”(in a more formal sense) in Hindi, and is indeed built like that. I noticed this place last week when I went to Tea Trails, which is located right opposite to it.

The place looks quite beautiful with some gazebos for group seating, and lots of smaller sized tables. Special note to ladies, don’t go to this place wearing your pretty heels, all the floors(outside and inside) are covered with sand and you’ll have  a difficult time walking around 🙂
