Our Mid-Year Round Up 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! 

    Suzy Q

    Suzy Q By 1522

    Vasanth Nagar, Bangalore

    Smack in the centre of town, inside the iconic New Indian Express, say hello to Suzy Q by the folks behind the gorgeous 1Q1. If you thought 1Q1 couldn’t get prettier, well then, you’re in for a surprise. With pathways and canopies making it seem like a Spanish garden, you will feel like you’re in a tropical paradise. Settle into the outdoor space with red arches for a backdrop or check into the cosy Love Booths.

    The food is tapas-inspired and ranges from coastal delicacies, North Indian, and tandoor to burgers, pizzas and bar nibbles! Think Mangalorean-style sukka, classic cheese cherry pineapple, and rigatoni fritters. Like 1Q1, cocktails here are to be photographed before being sipped on. They’ve weaved in Indian ingredients like kalakhatta, kokum, and chaat masala among others. 

    Gawky Goose

    Gawky Goose is another new spot that's opened in the last few months that's got for all your favourites but with a global twist! Think Creamy Wild Mushroom Cappuccino, Mexican Madhur Vade, Waffle Idli with Srilankan Pepper Curry, Tandoor Jerk Chicken Stuffed doughnuts, and Laal Maans Shepherd's Pie. Try their cocktails such as Gazpacho Bloody Mary, Smoked Zombie, and MexiCano.

    The ambience has a touch of English and European decor with plush seaters, natural wooden tables and a pop of yellow with chesterfields and wingbacks. Plus, you can't miss the head-turning design concept that’s inspired by your typical Irish pub with undertones of local tropical greens. 


    It's gelato season (every day is gelato season in our opinion) at this newly opened gelateria in Vijaynagar. Sorbetto has 25 flavours of gelato for you to scoop into with their best sellers being Raspberry Duet, Quella, and Lotus Biscoff Cheesecake (which you get in a jar!). They also have our favourite gelato flavour -- strawberry. Classic shakes and boba tea has our attention while the rest of the menu has options that include Stroop waffles and mini pancakes. The space is cute and perfect for gelato dates, so if you are living on that side of the town, you know where to head to. 

    Araku Cafe

    Araku Coffee

    Available on LBB

    Araku's first-ever cafe in India is right on Indiranagar's 12th Main. A massive two-storied cafe with the ground floor dedicated to three coffee sections -- a Modbar, touted to be India's first, a Sensory Bar, where you can try our Araku's blends in various brewing methods to enjoy the bean to cup experience, and the Trad Bar, which is your traditional coffee station. There's a bookstore too. The first floor consists of the roasting station, the training station, and outside seating as well as a conference room which can be booked out for meetings. The menu is a timed menu -- meaning you have an all-day section along with breakfast, lunch, and dinner with last orders for breakfast coming closing at 11 am.

    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!

    Tycoons - Fine Dine & Restobar


    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.
