The Beer Cafe, VR Bengaluru, Whitefield

There is no lack of watering holes in this city, but The Beer Cafe stands out due to its sizeable beer menu. The place offers beers from all over the world, along with great cocktails and food.

This outlet in VR mall is smaller Koramangala counterpart, but has both indoor and outdoor seating. Decor is very basic, nothing to write home about.

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.

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.

Smise, Koramangala 4th Block

“Smise” is a beautiful cafe located on 80 ft. road in Koramangala. It is spread across the fourth floor of a building and has some lovely terrace seating too. The whole terrace area is surrounded with innumerable pots and the breeze is wonderful.

Their menu has plenty of things to choose from – salads, sandwiches, pizzas, sizzlers, shakes and much more. They also have loads of board-games too if you get bored 🙂

That Garage Cafe, HSR Layout

“That Garage Cafe” is a garage themed cafe in HSR and part of the place rents/sells cycles and bikes too. The cafe is not very big and has an interesting decor with tables shaped like bike tyres, napkin holders made out of audio cassettes etc. There are some board games as well like scrabble, monopoly etc.

I saw some massive stunning Enfields(I could identify only Americana) outside for sale/rent. So if you are a bike lover, do go to this place.

Midnight Mania, Koramangala

It’s great to have more options in the city now a days for satisfying late night hunger pangs. I found this place called ‘Midnight Mania’ on Zomato while looking for a quick takeaway after a late movie in Koramangala.

The place is located at the same location as Hangout Cafe, but is a little difficult to spot since there are no lights outside. I had called them beforehand for a takeaway of mushroom punch thin crust pizza, so we didn’t have to wait for long after reaching the place.
