Bike and Barrel is one of the older pubs in Chennai and unlike most others, it is a true pub and not a pub that becomes a club when the sun sets. Located in the crook of Hotel Residency Towers in T.Nagar, it is a true pub honing the classic English beer-drinking culture. So dancers, sorry to disappoint but this is a place where you come to unwind with a nice drink. The ambience of the place will take you back in time with their retro 60's and 70's poster and casual music. The dimly lit lanterns against the clean wooden backdrop set the mood just about right.
Leather cushioned couches and a vintage Harley Davidson bike suspended from the ceiling steals he show. However, it is the offers and the drinks that make Bike And barrel one of the best hangout spots. For starters, their happy hours run seven days a week straight from 12 pm to 8 pm! During happy hours they have a buy two get one free policy for wait-for-it, all alcohol! Domestic and Imported. That means you can essentially get a glass of Bombay Sapphire gin for around INR 230! Or maybe a glass of Grey Goose for approx. INR 330! (Provided you actually plan on drinking three). Isn't that a great way to start your sloshing day early?
You can also order up some Sula wine and we absolutely love getting a kick out of it. Bike And Barrel has got a menu for that perfect snacks to hog on while drinking away your fill. Order up some fish popcorn or chicken tikka. Don't worry vegetarians, they have got tons of options for you too, starting from cheese and potato to corn and pineapple. They have live music on Sunday afternoons as well along with live game screening for all you football and cricket fans.
