Live The High Life At Hype, Shangri-La’s Rooftop Bar
Glitzy, glamorous and a fine addition to East Bangalore’s nightlife, Hype is all about chilling on the 19th floor with a 360 degree view.
What Makes It Awesome
While it’s all about the flashy lights (there’s a very intriguing wall which lights up to the music) there’s plenty of room across the entire terrace to make it a date night. Or even for those who like to have a drink in solitude to unwind. It’s a split level space so you can choose to be where all the dancing is, or just enjoy your drink (fine wine and spirits to drown any woes!) with the panoramic view for company.
We love that you can order old-school cocktails here. The Bloody Mary is divine without holding back on the vodka, but hit this place for their fine offerings of wine and whiskey (so smoky and beautifully aged). But if you like to switch things up, and let your poison for the evening suit your mood, their cool mixologists will stir up anything you like. We got ourselves a lovely sweetened and smokey whiskey one, and would give it top marks. Also, ask them to do a version of the Whiskey Sours – thank us later.
Best make an evening of it with tapas-style snacks dominating the menu. Think cheese platters, kebabs, baos and Vietnamese buns. We couldn’t get enough of the Salmon Rolls, pink and fresh off the boat, it seemed. Plus, sushi and sashimi to make it a perfect night out. With a 360 degree view of the glittering city skyline, yes, thank you, we’d like a champagne to go with the set-up!
It’s more a lounge bar, and the prices, of course, are star-level. So as much as we’d like to, we won’t advice partying it up here every weekend.
