#AlwarpetTrails : Check Out This List Of Best Things To Do In Alwarpet

With its central location, ever peaceful neighbourhood and streets full of pretty houses, all of us would have dreamt about living in Alwarpet at least once. It is also becoming the hub for new restaurants, coaching centres and more. If you're new to the city or are keen on exploring Alwarpet to the fullest, check out this detailed list of best things to do in Alwarpet.

Jog On Boat Club Road

Boat Club Road is a place with some of the most beautiful houses in the city. It is also filled with tall trees which makes it a perfect spot to take a walk, jog or run. You will see people doing the same thing, no matter how early in the morning or late in the evening you go there. You can also find plenty of well-groomed fur friends that come for a walk along with their parents. We love!

Visit Cues And You

Cues And You is a cute space on T.T.K. Road where you can play pool, snookers and billiards. Raja Mohan, a pool referee himself, conducts classes for these games which is priced at INR 15,000 for one on one coaching. They conduct tournaments too, so you should totally check it out.

Dine At Benjarong

Benjarong is arguably Chennai's best Thai restaurant. From Pahd Thai to Gai Hor Baitaey, their Thai cuisine tastes so yummy that we cannot put it into words. Though it is not a budget restaurant, this place on T.T.K. Road should be totally visited for their great quality food.

Eat At French Loaf

French Loaf must be every dessert lover's go-to place! The one in Alwarpet, opposite Indian Terrain store has amazing customer service and great cakes (duh!). We loved their rainbow cake and tiramisu and the tiny glass room setup with well-lit interiors give the place a cosy feel.

Watch Legends Perform In Music Academy And Naradha Ghana Sabha

These two Sabhas are two of the most iconic performance venues in the city. Having been there for decades, both are located very close to each other on T.T.K. Road. From mesmerising kutcheris to scintillating arangetrams and even school annual days and concerts, these two places are always lively and full of energy, with the Margazhi season being the busiest.
