Koramangala Peeps, This Bar In Your Hood Now Moonlights As A Co Working Space Too

Amrita posted on 21 April

Shortcut

Eat, play, drink and even work now, from Bak Bak Bar in Koramangala, because your neighbourhood bar just turned into a fun co-working space. Be Anywhere, a company that specialises in turning any space into a co-working one for startups has made this happen.

Show Me The Way To The Next Bar, Please!

The #lbbcrew landed up at Bak Bak Bar on a Tuesday morning to check out the Be Anywhere Bar and find out how a bar can possibly be a workspace. Bak Bar Bar is located on the rooftop of a building, and it is a long but big space, thankfully with air conditioning. There is a really nice al fresco seating area that overlooks the busy Inner Ring Road. You can also pay foosball or take a smoke break here.

We parked ourselves at a table made with recycled wood and with colourful chairs {these are all bought off Sharma Farms in Delhi}. The decor is really quirky here, and you will love the Old Ship lights brought all the way from Chor Bazaar in Bombay, and also the old Campa Cola ice boxes, and vintage telephones. Army bullet boxes scored from Avenue Road form the decor here as do upcycled old cartons, which work as lighting.

Work And Eat

The WiFi speed here is pretty good and will cost a fee of just INR 300, but this will include connectivity plus unlimited tea and coffee {includign iced versions} too. Thankfully there was no music, and the bar wasn’t so crowded either. So working out of here was a breeze.

The Bak Bak Bar folks also have a special thali on offer for co-workers, and this includes daal, roti, rice, and a vegetable with eggs {omlettes, egg bhurji} or chicken {tikkas and kebabs} as choices. We felt like this thali didn’t really gel with the rest of the ambience, but it was a definitely a light and health-ish lunch. But we did end up ordering their French fries with bacon bits, and the very very fiery Bhoot Jholokia chicken wings, because when in a bar, you gotta order starters, dude!

So, We're Thinking...

Before we left, Be Anywhere had a surprise for us. We got a 10-minute back rub from therapists from a Koramangala spa. Apparently, there will be other surprises like this organised regularly for coworking folks.

What worked for us was the WiFi speed of course and the fact that the bar wasn’t crowded at all. We suggest coming here on weekdays to work rather than on weekends.

When: Monday to Friday, 10am-5pm

Contact: You can send a message to Be Anywhere here with your company email address, date and number of seats you need and they’ll reserve the space. Reservation is a must as there are only 20 seats a day.
