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.
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.
“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.
Phoenix Market City is undoubtedly a delight for both shoppers and foodies. Bar bar is a new addition to the ever expanding list of fabulous eateries at this mall.
“Bar bar” translates to “frequently” in Hindi, or maybe it just refers to “bar”. I am going to assume it means “frequently” since I’d love to go there bar bar. 🙂
We dropped in for lunch after some frantic shopping and had really good food. The place was empty except for a couple of occupied tables. I guess not many people know about it yet.
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.
It’s funny(and incredible too!) when you see your partner knows you a bit too well 🙂 And mine knows that I get cranky if we spend the whole weekend at home 😀 So after spending most part of Saturday catching up stuff on Netflix, he suggested we check out ‘Safe House’ in HSR.
We made a reservation through Dineout and reached the place. It is located on outer ring road opposite to Pindi.
The decor is typical, with dim lighting, high chairs and a pool table in the middle. We got seated and started scanning through their menus. The first thing that I noticed was their pricing. I don’t think you can get such low priced cocktails at many places in the city. They have a good variety of beers as well, everything from Kingfisher draft to Stella Artois.
HSR is gradually becoming the new Koramangala with a slew of new restaurants, pubs and cafes. And this watering hole is a new addition to the area’s bustling food scene.
I was always curious about this place because of its name, and was very happy when Mr. H suggested it for lunch this weekend so that I could tick it off my list 😀
Their menu says the place is not named after the lower house of parliament in UK. It is called “House of Commons” in a more literal sense, a place which welcomes anyone and everyone 🙂 The establishment is spread over two floors, with plenty of both indoor and outdoor seating.
