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.

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.

Hammered, Cunningham Road

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.

Mojo Pizza, BTM

Spotted this not-yet-tried place called Mojo Pizza with a tempting menu and great reviews over the weekend. My other(or better :)) half was not ready to give up the couch on Sunday, so I placed an order for home delivery.

I got a farm fresh thin crust pizza with some extra mushrooms and corn and a portion of cheesy garlic bread. Order was dispatched within 15 minutes which was impressive and reached us soon in two colourful boxes and in mint condition.

Tilt, Koramangala

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.

Hoot, Sarjapur Road

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.
