IPL Season 11 Is Here & Here's Our Pick Of Best Bar Deals And Live Screenings In Town

It’s that time of the year again when the cricket-mad nation of ours is going to get a little madder, a little crazier, and a whole lot boisterous. It is after all the IPL season and with all the bars and restaurants gearing up to showcase live screenings with IPL for the next two months.  We have curated a list of places in town where you can cheer for your team with your squad with deals on alcohol and food to sweeten your team’s victory {or loss}. Oh, and here’s to hoping that RCB will win the IPL this season finally!

Monkey Bar

Trust Monkey Bar {MB} to launch a curated menu just for IPL. Dubbed the Full Toss menu, MB is dishing out dishes that represent all the eight teams. The IP special menu called Full Toss comes on a bat no less. No really. For all you Knight Rider fans, there’s Kolkata Fish Fry and for the Sunrisers there’s Hyderabad Nagarjuna Chilli Chicken Roll for you to bite into. Bangalore gets represented through Bangalore Prawn in Chilli Butter-Garlic. Chennai Pulled Pork Paniyaram, Rajasthan Dahi ke Pithore, Mumbai Malvani Chicken Tacos and Delhi Butter Chicken complete the roster. These small plates start at INR 250 upwards while during the live screening, the drinks menu is priced at INR 280 upwards. Plus, there are plenty of one on one deals on alcohol too.

blueFrog

Unlimited beer or unlimited hard liquor? blueFrog has got it all. For INR 1,099 you can drink all the beer you want from the first ball of the match to the last all through the IPL season. If rum and whiskey are your thing, go for the INR 1,399 deal where you get unlimited IMFL drinks. Both these offers come with one complimentary starter. The starter menu comprises bar nibbles such as Bread Onion Rings, Panko Potato Croquettes, Chicken Wings, and Harissa Spiced Chicken Tikka. Yummers!

Mainland China

Beer buckets to start you off while you order some noodles and dim sums, Mainland China’s IPL is perfect if you are planning on having a family dinner with some IPL screening. We are not sure if the fam’s going to complain, but hey, when you get four beers for the price of three, things might be a little easy for you. And besides, there’s nothing Chinese food can’t solve.

Social

Screenings are happening at all the three outlets of Social — Koramangala, Church Street, and Whitefield — and adding to the fray is the Social 20/20, eight specially curated LLIITs in colourful avatars that represent the colours of the team you support. If you are an RCB fan, then your LLIIT for all the match screenings ought to be the very red, Berry Bangalore. Kolkata Nightcap gets a purple makeover while Sunny Chennai has a bright yellow. The cocktails are priced at INR 550 upwards and we say wear your jerseys, head to the nearest Social, order your LLIIT, and cheer your team!
