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 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.
There are times when quaint cafes and rustic microbreweries just don’t cut it. This was one such weekend when I was yearning for some booming music & dim lights, and moreover it had been a while since we visited a pub.
So this Saturday we decided to go to Tilt. It’s a gastropub located in Koramangala 5th Block with excellent F&B choices and great service.
I made a reservation through Zomato and we reached there just a little after eight. The place has two different sections of seating. Outer one is more like a casual lounge with not so loud music. The inner section has a small dance floor and is split into different seating areas. It has just the perfect kind of dim lighting.
I had been frequently working Hoot into our weekend conversations of “where do we go for lunch today?”. Mr. H finally gave in this weekend, and we went there for a late lunch 🙂
Hoot is a massive microbrewery located on Sarjapur Road and is a new addition to the rapidly expanding list of microbreweries in the city. It is spread over a whopping 40000 sq ft and resembles a warehouse or garage from outside.
I had seen some beautiful pictures of its striking ambiance on different websites and blogs, and was looking forward to visiting it.
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!).
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 🙂
Just as I start thinking that I have tried all the pizza places in Koramangala, a new place with an amusing name pops up! Love this city 🙂
Ministry of pizza serves delicious pizzas and has beer on tap. What’s not to love! The place is located right opposite to Nagarjuna and looks charming. They have outdoor as well as indoor seating. They also have an open kitchen outside and you can see the pizzas getting baked right in front of you.
