Our Last Leg Of The Year List Of All The Newly Opened Restaurants, Cafes & Bars


    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 new restaurants and bars that are opened in Bangalore. Thank us later! Oh and always remember to follow all the safety regulations when you are heading to these places! 

    Geist Brewing Taproom

    Geist Brewing Taproom

    rajaji nagar, Bangalore

    Folks in West Bangalore, rejoice as namma local beer brand, Geist has finally opened its doors in your neighbourhood. Geist Brewing Taproom is located inside Orion Mall at Brigade Gateway, by the lakeside. Fresh craft beer is on tap including favourites such as Geist Silly Pint and Geist Uncle Dunkel. For food, we recommend going for the pizza -- we are eying the Peppery Pork. Bar nibbles include Madras Idli Chaat, Smoked Chilli Chicken, and Ghee Roast Prawn Cracker. There's a Pulled Pork Idli that we are looking at having when we pop by. 

    Hophaus - Tropical Taproom & Kitchen


    Indira Nagar, Bangalore

    Hophaus's second outlet in the city is right in the heart of Bangalore's party central and most happening road, 12th Main Indiranagar. Located above Sriracha and Sanchez, the space is designed keeping in mind the travel and the taproom aesthetics. The food is by Chef Vikas Seth and his team, so expect modern meets classics in small plates and sharing platters format. We are already sold on the Spiced Pita Pillows with Silk Hummus, Black Pepper Roasted Tenderloin, and Hophaus Kadaknath (a pre-order delicacy rare black chicken from Madhya Pradesh). And we love how they are bringing in some of the crowd favourites from Hophaus Whitefield -- Samosettes and Masala Garlic Bread. Drinks have local ingredients in focus and house signatures we are saying cheers to are the Asian Gimlet and Whiskey-brisky. 

    K-OS: The GameBar

    K-OS The GameBar

    Adugodi, Bangalore

    K-OS The Game Bar in Koramangala is touted to be India's first social darts bar. It's got 10 dart lanes for you to battle it out with your friends to see who's got the best aim and can hit the bullseye. There's also an outdoor gaming area that's filled with a curated collection of fun party games. We hear that K-OS also organises dart tournaments and while our aim is probably the worst in the world, nothing like trying it out. Also, karaoke sessions can be hosted. The grub has a lot of finger food that's perfect for the setting and includes favourites such as Spiced Mexican Fries, Crispy Chicken Strips, Achaari Aloo, and Rosemary Paneer Tikka. 

    Secret Story

    Secret Story is another new spot that's opened up on Indiranagar's 12th Main. The restobar is located above Araku Cafe, and it boasts of a highly Insta-worthy space that will instantly be on your IG stories the moment you get in. That huge bar counter that divides the space into two floors is something we can't stop admiring. We can't quite place what the theme is (from their social channels, we are guessing a tropical theme) -- there are Romanesque statues, greens, tropical prints on the seating and the staff's uniform, and lots of wooden accents -- but we are not complaining. It's a visual treat. We hear the menu is has a bit of everything for everyone -- from Indian to Asian and everything in between including Italian and French. 

    The Pet People

    Channelling the vibes of New York - its diversity, love for coffee, veganism and pets, The Pet People Cafe is the perfect place to kick off your day with caffeine, a bagel with your beagle in tow! Or any doggo for that matter as the cafe is pet-friendly. Located inside the Paws & Collars store in HSR Layout, the cafe's menu, curated by master chef Abhijit Saha, is also inspired by New York, so expect a curated selection with coffees straight from Chikmagalur, roasted to perfection. They have an all-day breakfast section including smoothie bowls as well as New York-style baked cheesecake.

    Old Madras Baking Company

    Old Madras Baking Company is set on New BEL Road, the look and feel are exactly the same as the original Chennai one - warm, cosy, wooden and somewhat industrial. Community-style tables provide an opportunity to strike up a conversation with strangers and friends. They also have cereal bread, brioches, bagels and pastries. Plus, jams, preserves, pickles, pasta, honey and chocolate sauces - all handmade, with no preservatives at all.

    Trippy Goat Cafe & Wine Bar

    Trippy Goat Cafe

    Vasanth Nagar, Bangalore

    Surrounded by greenery and colonial structures, Trippy Goat is a great spot for a date, catchup, or even work on occasion. We love the outdoor seating. The space is cosy and perfect for great conversations with some yum food to go with it. We are fans of the French Fries, the Pork & Pineapple Burger, Fish & Chips, and Gratin’d Vegetables. The wine bar menu is extensive and you can order a glass or two when you here on a date. Coffee lovers unite as you can pick up from light or medium roasts or the seasonal speciality as manual brews.
