Navya posted on 23 July

One of our favourite places to party it up in the city, Indiranagar has much on offer for the pub lover and the bar hopper. All along the fashionable 100 Feet Road and its adjoining streets, you will find watering holes that range from glitzy to no-frills. All you need to do is drop by and prepare to leave on a high! Here are our picks of the best pubs (we are including bars and lounges as well) in Indiranagar. 


Pecos Stones

An old Bangalore pub, Pecos Stone is where you come when you want to fill up on beer (somewhat diluted, though) without spending too much. Along with pitchers of frothy beer, there’s also the rock music and the spice-packed bar eats. The Chilli Beef, Peanut Masala, and Prawn Ghee Roast are must-haves here.

Toit

Possibly the most popular watering hole around this part of town, Toit is a favourite with every bar hopper in the city. Do steel yourself for the crowds here, especially on a Saturday night. If you do manage to get a seat, first, thank your lucky stars. Then, sit down and order up their fresh brews. The Basmati Blonde, Toit Weiss, and the Dark Knight are all popular picks. From the food menu, do try the Lamb, Fig, and Cheese Pizza, the Baked Nachos, and the hefty Toit Steak.

Monkey Bar

For a memorable night out in Indiranagar, there can be no better place than Monkey Bar. It’s a place that can fill up quickly so make sure you get here before the crowds start pouring in.

The General Tso’s Paneer, Mobar Caramelised Ribs, and the Aam Aadmi Eggs are all delicious.

Vapour Pub & Brewery

Spread across four floors, this brewery has enough place for all kinds of revellers. If you are looking for a quiet evening, park yourself on the first level. The next two are reserved for when you want to enjoy live acts. But by far, the rooftop is the most popular spot here. Wherever you grab a seat, you can be assured of freshly-brewed beer and food that pairs perfectly. From the brewery, the Basmati, Premium, and Wheat versions are worth sipping on. The Vapour Fries (that comes with fries, onion rings, and mozzarella sticks), the Magic Wings (grilled chicken wings), and their selection of pizzas make for great eats.

Hangover

Funky interiors, including a vintage Volkswagen van that’s been converted into a bar counter, greet you at this watering hole. There’s plenty of space but it can still get crowded on weekends. The bar menu comes with the usual suspects. And if you are here with a huge gang, do try their cocktail buckets. The Jalapeno Cheese Bites, the Chicken Wings in BBQ Sauce, and the Golden Fried Prawns are standard food choices here.
