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.
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.
153 Biere Street is a picturesque address tucked away in Whitefield. The place has a microbrewery, couple of cafes, boutiques etc and has a certain old world charm to it. It feels like a different world altogether with beautiful brick lanes, victorian lights and antique wrought iron furniture.
I had seen some beautiful photos and reviews of the outlet of Biere Club here and decided to visit it over the weekend. I had been to the one on Lavelle road and liked the brews and food.
Loved and hated this place at the same time! It’s like a slightly upmarket dhaba that serves excellent food and beverages at low prices, but you can’t be finicky about hygiene here. You’d be spoilt for choices of both food and beverages, since they serve everything from chakhna (titbits like salted peanuts, fried moong dal etc), nachos, baos with quirky fillings to biryani and much more.
The first time we came here, there was a long queue. The next time we were there, it was closed due to prohibition 😦 Today was our lucky day and we got a table. They have some seating outside, but it was way too hot, so we chose to sit in. There was no one at the reception and none of the servers seemed interested in showing us a table, so we found a place ourselves and settled in.
Such a sad day. I was having such a good time shopping in Phoenix Market City a couple of days back and looking forward to a delicious lunch afterwards in Noodle Bar. Unfortunately, we reached the restaurant and saw it was closed. And then it got worse, when we found out that most of the eateries were closed due to prohibition in the city 😦
I was in no mood to have lunch in food court, and thankfully we stumbled upon Hungry Monk, which is located in a secluded corner of the mall.
If you are a Bangalorean and haven’t visited this place, you are missing something 🙂 I can’t stop gushing about this place, so this review is a long one 😀
This place had been on my to-visit list for a while, but it’s really far from my place (somewhere around 23 kms), so it was still pending. We finally got a chance to visit this paradise on a weekday. Thankfully it didn’t take us very long for reaching this place, but a long time to come back home.
It is spread across 6th and 8th floor of a particular building in EPIP zone, Whitefield. We both instantly fell in love with the place, the moment we stepped in. It is classy and not at all loud in terms of decor and music.
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.
