Cheap And Cheerful: Old School Pubs In Koramangala

    From microbreweries and themed pubs to music bars and swanky watering holes, Koramangala sure has it all. But, long before they came into the picture, the hood was buzzing with quite a few old-school pubs. Whether it’s for the pocket-friendly beer and nibbles or for the great music they play, these were the go-to options for many. And going by the crowds these spots still draw, they will probably retain their place among our favourites, for a long time to come. LBB goes on an old-fashioned pub trail in Koramangala. Hop on and get guzzling!

    Jimi's Beer Cafe

    Jimi's Beer Cafe

    Indira Nagar, Chennai

    With its rock ‘n’ roll vibes, loud music {rock lovers, you might be tempted to sing along} and budget-friendly food and drinks, Jimi’s is perfect when you want to spend an evening catching up with friends over a pitcher of beer and nibbles. And when there’s match screenings, pool tables and week-long happy hour offers on the cards, we really couldn’t ask for more.

    The Jukebox

    The Juke Box

    Koramangala, Bangalore

    When you have a restobar that has stood the test of time {and taste, might we add} for over 23 years, there’s really no place for second thoughts. Then, of course, there’s the lure of a mug of beer at INR 75, a selection of great food {including Parsi specials like Dhansak and Patrani Machhi} and music to match the retro mood of the place. Records, posters, musical instruments and a jukebox {obviously!} find their way into the decor here, adding to the laidback feels.

    Sathya's

    Sathya's

    An iconic landmark and the go-to place of many {especially towards the end of the month}, Sathya’s is great when you want to hang out with friends and down a few drinks without running up a huge bill. And with quite an array of starters and snacks to choose from too! Already planning the next catch up. are we?

    Enigma

    Enigma

    Koramangala, Bangalore

    Upbeat and loud music, happy hours, comfy seating, lively ambience — we might never run out of reasons why we love Enigma for a good ole night out. When there’s plenty of short eats to go with your tipple, right from classic French Fries to burgers and kebabs, all at reasonable prices, we wouldn’t be surprised if you ended up spending the entire day here. We’ll probably be the table beside you!
