Last friday we paid a visit to Gilly’s Restobar for dinner. Having never been to Koramalagala Gilly’s, I was looking forward to this one near my house.
We had made a reservation, which seemed unnecessary later on since the place had plenty of vacant tables. There was a minimal cover charge, which made me wonder why it was there at all 🙂
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.
‘Pazzo’ is a nice little eatery in HSR. I googled the word and found that it translates to insane/crazy in Italian 😀 I guess the name was chosen for the insanely good food that this place serves!
We went here over this weekend for dinner. The place is not very big, and can feel a little cramped when it’s full. Most of the seating consists of high chairs; there are a couple of benches as well.
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.
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.
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.
