Safe House, HSR

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.

House of Commons, HSR

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.

Harry’s Bar + Cafe, Koramangala

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 🙂

Droolworthy food & drinks with some deafening music @The Irish House, Whitefield

Last time when we went to this place, it was yet to open. So this Saturday after our movie in market city,  I subtly suggested that we go to VR mall and see how this place was doing 😀

The pub looks beautiful from outside, they have put up vintage wall clocks on display on the outer wall, along with some beautiful portraits of Ireland.

We were quickly ushered to a table and I was momentarily stunned by the gorgeous interiors. Lighting was just perfect, not so dark that you’d keep bumping into tables, and not so bright either.

Pubbing punjabi style @ Peddlers

Coming to Chandigarh and not checking out the nightlife! Not done 🙂

And when in Punjab, do as the Punjabis do 🙂 So Friday night we headed to a place called Peddlers, which had decent number of good Zomato reviews and was located in the very famous Elante Mall. I made a booking and reached around 9:30.

The place was sort of empty, but the music was nice and not too loud. It’s not a very big place, but has a lovely rustic ambiance.

Delicious pub grub @Harry’s, Phoenix Market City

Spent most of this Saturday shopping, and after finishing in Koramangala, decided to visit VR Bengaluru. After getting disheartened to see an almost deserted Whitefield Arms and yet-to-open Irish House (which looked very good and is opening on 12th), we thought of going to Harry’s in Phoenix Market City.
