Happy New Year! Hope you enjoyed your holidays. I sure did and now I am having a tough time getting back to work 🙂
We had a fun new year’s eve celebration in Marriott Whitefield, and before that we went to this beautiful restobar called HQ. It is spread across two floors in Inorbit Mall, which is right next to Marriott. The place looks beautiful and airy with plenty of comfy seating, hanging pots and greens all around.
We took a table outside where the breeze was lovely. Menu is good and offers plenty of drinks and grub to choose from. They had Geist brews on tap, and we asked for an unkel dunkel, witty wit, onion rings and veg sliders.
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.
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.
