From a high-end bar to your best friend's home, any place can be a heaven for cocktail lovers. 

Vapour Bar Exchange in Sec 29, Gurgaon blew me away by the widest range of cocktails and is surely one of the best places in the city to get high while being low on the pocket!

One thing this place is known for is its unique way of deciding the price of alcohol on their bar menu. Vapour bar exchange uses the concept of the stock market to display the price of alcohol. You can see the price of every drink flashing on the screen and changing as they have their own virtual market.

Another thing one would love is their menu presentation. It is in the form of a newspaper !!

The best place for cocktails in my city is Peddlers Amritsar, The Lounge Bar, Star ‘N’ Bars, Cafe  OZ, and Irish Beach. They all serve great food with great musical evenings. The right place to enjoy football or cricket matches along with a variety of cocktails and food. The ambiance at these places is great, and they are not much crowded as there is a lot of space for dining. They provide awesome cocktails, and most brands of beer are available. Also, they provide live music and an awesome dance floor. Premium quality hookah is also available at some of these places. All in all, these are some good places to hang out at with your group and enjoy.

Doolally on Tap! is Pune’s first microbrewery and one of the pioneers of the microbrewery industry in India. The beers are crafted by German brew master Oliver Schauf and change every month. His influence can also be seen on the menu which includes German sausages among other Indian and European dishes. The interior of the pub is very traditional with wooden bar stools and floor panels, barrels as tables and huge tanks belonging to the brewery in the background. It also has an outside seating area for guests to enjoy Pune’s pleasant climate with a handcrafted beer.

 I live in Guwahati (Assam, North East). We have a lot of small bars as well as clubs, pubs, sports bars, and lounges to go and relax and hang out with friends and family. We love eating and drinking and have a good time together. Foods and drinks are good everywhere, especially the cocktails.

 But I should tell you that you will find the best cocktails in “Brooklyn Blues” (in ABC), “Underdoggs Sports Bar” (in Christian Basti) and yeah of course “Club XS” (in ABC). These are the best in the town serving the cocktails. I have given three names because they are the best in it.

All the bartenders namely, Dipankar and Chettri in Brooklyn Blues, Rampal in XS and Raja in Underdoggs are pros in making and serving the best cocktails in the city

Bonus: You might want to try the new retro lounge called “Retro Town” in six-mile and “Irish Bar” at Hotel Shoolin Grand in Rukmingaon.

Shiro is certainly one of the top rated places in the NCR area and while most people will talk their hearts out about its ambience, Shiro’s cocktails are definitely some of the best you can have anywhere. The accompaniments are sure to leave an impression on you and the food after will make your cocktail trip, one to remember. It’s a little expensive (Rs.2200 per person) but yes, a definite must try for a foodie. Shiro is definitely the best place to revive memories with friends over a Cocktail or two or three. 

 

Going to the Hot Mess in Connaught place should be on your list of to do things if you are looking to have a good cocktail to brighten up your evening. The same can be said for the Unplugged Courtyard which tops up your liquor experience with some really nice live music. Try their Kebabs, you’ll thank us.

BEST BARS IN CHANDIGARH

The city beautiful is full of life. You will find plenty of everything you want. It is famous for its perfect bars as well. Here are a few of them:

•    Whisky 111

Creating quite a flutter in the liquor connoisseur circles, Whisky 111 is an apt place to savour some rare Scotches, Single Malts and other labels sourced from all over the globe.

 

•    Hops n Grains

Nothing comes close to the perfection of this freshly brewed, sparkling, frothy beer on a hot summer day. The four varieties of lager beer, premium, light, wheat and dark perfectly compliment.

 

•    Tao Bar Lounge

An archetypal example of modern unwinding avenue, thriving on the people's penchant for hardcore partying, this groovy lounge is an ideal haunt for nocturnals.

 

•    Lava

A small, cozy place, Lava is the retro themed bar of the Taj Chandigarh.

 

•    Kava

With well-stacked liquor bottles placed neatly on the shelves, the dance cum dining arena of the city turns lively almost every alternative night.

 

•    Peddlers

Peddlers at Hotel Heritage sure knows how to draw in the crowd. DJs playing loud foot-tapping, engaging the (mostly) youthful crowd who are in the the doldrums to unwind and looking to have fun, theme nights and long Happy Hours are a regularity.

 

•    Girl in the Café

 

Large and airy, with an open kitchen which houses a hearth and an open verandah with tables, the music, can be a trifle too loud, but that doesn't seem to put off the families and friends who congregate here.

    

 

•    The S Lounge

Chic and Moorish, the lounge promises undiluted fun. The music here is commercial and Bollywood, besides Punjabi coming as a surprise element. With an array of cocktails, drinks, and mocktails, it can turn out to be a refreshing visit.

The best place for cocktails in Pune would undoubtedly have to be Farzi Café. Located in the prime suburb of Kalyani Nagar, Farzi Café is a pioneer in molecular techniques in food as well as drinks.

The bar at Farzi café is known for its innovative drinks such as Farzi Apple Foamantini and Chai Paani. While the apple foamantini is made with vodka, lime, green apple and elderflower topped with mint foam, the chai paani is a unique blend of vodka, coffee liqueur, tea decoction, apple juice with earl grey fumes.

Regular use of dry ice in the presentation and liquid nitrogen in the preparation is what sets this place apart and right on top of the heap of cocktail bars in Pune.

Best Bars in Chandigarh\

1. S Cafe & Bar
This is a bar in Chandigarh where you can take your female friend for a date, and she is
most likely going to visit on her own later on. It has a trendy atmosphere and its happy hours
mean one plus one unlike special condition happy hours in other places in Chandigarh. They
generally play electronic dance music and boast a very attentive staff.

2. The Great Bear
The place could have been run by The beer specialists, i.e., Germans, and it feels that good.
You would love to go to this place during happy hours as it comes really cheap for those one
on one offers. They have a nice rear garden seating which again can remind one of the
German beer cafes.

3. Xtreme Sports Bar & Grill
So here is a sports bar in Chandigarh which has some of the best food among all bars in and
around. The place is divided into two floors with almost every wall having a TV screen, and
then there are those groups which organize screenings of football matches. If you visit this
place chances are you’d end up making friends with people who are also ardent followers of
the same club as you.

1. The Flying Elephant
Now here is a different experience for once you enter this place, you take time in deciding
which of the three floors to go and sit on. The Flying Elephant is a Beautiful place with 3
floors with each floor delivering a different experience. Their food menu is great, and they
boast some really cool cocktails.

2. Radio Room
Prepare to enter a place which has a bar built up of white washed radios, literally. It's a
Couple's bar, and it would be difficult getting an entry here if you’re a stag, but if you have to
drink alone, you're seated in the restaurant. The music can be loud for some people so be
prepared for that kind of time.

3. US 101
If you are a sports lover, then Chennai has finally opened its doors to a nice bar that caters
to your needs. Their food is amazing. However, there may be a shortage of variety when it
comes to beer.

I am from Pune, and I take pride in saying that I live in a city which is known for its nightlife which is not
only great but also safe for women. Here are some of the places I have been to and would recommend
cocktails from for both the genders.
High Spirits
The Martinis here come with a twist, many of them are mixed with fruit juice. Of course, you can order
the classic dry one with olives. They also have this one cocktail called 'Something Relevant, ' and I
promise it would surprise you no end. High Spirits is a lovely, lively place with a crowd you would like to
spend time amid. Their Moscow Mule and Monkey gland are pretty cool too.
Classic Rock Coffee Co
If you are in the Kalyani Nagar area and get thirsty for a good cocktail, visit Classic Rock Coffee Co. Ask
for their coffee cocktails and if you are hungry order biryani which is surprisingly good.
Their Brown Eyes cocktail is really good too and if you are visiting on the weekend, set yourself up for a
pretty amazing live band.
Other places you can go to are Paasha, Swig Bar & Eatery, Hard Rock cafe, etc.

So Jodhpur has always been a favourite tourist spot among those who visit Rajasthan, and that has also been responsible for the birth of really nice bars in the city. Here are some of the most popular places for you to try the best cocktails at.

 

On The Rocks: This is a resto bar actually and has really nice interiors and even a dancing area. The food is as good as the cocktails they serve.

 

A Solomon Lok: This is one of the better places to go to in Jodhpur considering the waiting staff actually pampers you. It is safe for women to visit too.

 

Nirali Dhani: This place has a bar with probably the friendliest bartenders. They have a garden seating area as well, and they maintain a traditional aura with live Rajasthani music and a free puppet show.

Mangalore is probably not one of those places that spirals you into excitement when it’s mentioned. Agreed. But trust me, Mangalore is more than simply another big town near a big city trying to live in its shadow and so on.Besides the old world charm of the place, Mangalore does have its fair share of hip party places, posh pubs and swanky nightclubs.

 

If you don’t believe me, then you should definitely visit at least one of these many spots.

 

Mangala is probably the most popular pub and bar in Mangalore. These guys have the best cocktails in town. Period!

 

The Jazz bar and lounge is also a great spot to have fine cocktails. With classy décor, plush seating, soft lighting and a relaxed ambience, this place too is worth a try.

 

Never miss a chance to hit the High Tide when in Mangalore! This chic pub is popular for its wide selection of cocktails, spirits and wines.

 

You should also try Liquid Lounge. These guys have literally set the standard for pubs in Mangalore.

 

 Then there is London Street. Looks very much like an old English pub. You’ll fall in love with this place.

I live in Dehradun. For me, Opal lounge is clearly the best place for cocktails here!

Although there are quite a few pubs and bars in Dehradun, which some others of you might find to be better than this; they cannot match up to this one when it comes down to location, service and ambience.

Rajpur road is undoubtedly the main attraction of Dehradun and therefore, it is more than obvious that a pub like Opal lounge is going to be a big hit with both visitors and tourists alike!

So guys, I’m not challenging your preferences, I’m just voicing my own opinion! To each their own, right?

Happy hours!
