    More often than not our users, friends, and family, and anyone who knows we work at LBB ask us one question: What is a new place I should eat at? And we pride ourselves in answering that question time and again. But then there comes a time when there are a few too many new places for us to remember. Hence this list of a whopping 10 (and counting! Yes we'll be adding to the list) new restaurants and bars that are opened in Bangalore. Thank us later!

    Copper & Cloves At The Organic World

    Copper + Cloves

    Indira Nagar, Bangalore

    If you’ve been following Sarah Edwards (aka Copper & Cloves on Instagram), you already know what we’re talking about. If not, head to the Organic World at Indiranagar 12th Main to find out the joys of hearty, farm to table meals. What will you get? Fully organic, decadent, yet healthy food! The Basil Pesto Mushroom Sourdough special is a must-try. And did we mention that their entire menu is vegan? 

    The Caffeine Baar

    The Caffeine Baar

    Jayanagar, Bangalore

    On the hunt for the next artisan coffee fix? Look no further than The Caffeine Baar. Calling themselves a coffee experience centre, they have really made coffee into a multisensory experience here. With an extensive range of brewing options, blends, and beans straight from their own estate (the famous Baarbara estate in Chikmagalur), they’re experimental and will let you attempt brewing your own coffee!

    Natraj Chole Bhature

    Natraj Chole Bhature

    Indira Nagar, Bangalore

    Almost everyone’s been talking about this, since it’s touted to bring in the typical chole bhatures of Delhi. The menu is simple and limited -- there’s chole bhature in two variations (full plate or half plate) and it’ll fill you up well. One of our team members and our wonderful Insiders, swear by this place for serving one of the best chole bhatures in town. Finish off your meal with a portion of gulaab jamun. 

    Iris Cafe

    Spacious, well-lit, and lots of corner spaces for you to lounge around and work or chill with your friends -- reasons why you need to check out Iris Cafe if you are in and around HSR Layout. The menu is your typical cafe fare -- pizzas to burgers, so you can’t go wrong there. Oh, and did we tell you there’s WiFi too?

    KoraMingle

    KoraMingle

    Koramangala, Bangalore

    We’d be rich if someone paid us a rupee, everytime we said there’s a new bar in Koramangala. KoraMingle is that new bar in the hood and this one makes it a place to mingle too. You’ve got Instagrammable spots (think Amsterdam street look, a library, and enough and more space to have a drink or two and catch up with the buds. Typical bar fare meets some interesting nibbles such as Chatamari Crêpes, which our Insider Ashriya swears by. In fact, she recommends you to try Whiskey flavoured Marshman for the theatrics and flavour of course. 

    Geist Brewing Factory - Restaurant & Beer Garden

    The beer at Geist Brewing Factory requires no introduction, but if you’re looking to get reintroduced, we promise the drive is worth it. The menu features fusion and bistro fare. Pearl Barley Risotto and Teriyaki Chicken Pizza to Caramelised Onion and Mozzarella Samosa and Classic Malai Tikka are some options. Of course, there’s great beer (including seasonal specials) too, that you can happily take home in their growlers should you want to!

    Khmer Kitchen

    Khmer Kitchen

    JP Nagar, Bangalore

    Couldn’t do your international trip in 2020? In 2021, be transported to Cambodia at Khmer Kitchen. From street staples like Num Krok and Chicken Skewers, to fun starters that include a range of dimsums, sushi, and baos, every type of eater is accommodated. What we’re loving is their eclectic range of Cambodian inspired cocktails that expertly incorporate spices and bitters. The space? You’d truly forget that you’re on JP Nagar’s Outer Ring Road.

    Tycoons - Fine Dine & Restobar

    Tycoons

    Indira Nagar, Bangalore

    OG Bangaloreans will know this name all too well. The new avatar of Tycoons comes with a retro-vintage vibe with high ceilings and an open floor plan. Be sure to click a few pictures of the artwork from local artists before you sit down and order bestsellers such as Chicken A La Kiev, caramel custard, and juicy steaks. Oh and while you are at it, order the French Onion soup

    Wall Street Sky Lounge

    The MG Road rooftop bar is great for enjoying the Bangalore Weather with some cold brews. Wall Street Sky Lounge is ideal for catch ups, lunches, dinners, and everything in between. Enjoy soul-satisfying Dal Makhani and (Double) Butter Chicken as well as Gyozas, and Whiskey Chicken Wings if that’s how you enjoy your touchings. All forms of alcohol pour aplenty to accompany, so round up your squad.

    Gustoes Beer And Bouffage

    South Bangalore peeps, this newly opened bar and restaurants in Jayanagar comes with plenty of space including a massive table that could hold a party of eight. Or more if you squeeze in. Couples tables are also there for those quick date nights with drinks. Speaking of drinks, draught beer is on tap. And the menu spreads across cuisines and includes some slightly non-bar usual fare like smoothie bowls. We say stick to the classics -- kebabs and pizza for a good night.
