    Now that you’ve hopefully set up a home bar with awesome barware, mixers, and drinks, it’s finally time to drink! And if you’re entertaining people for a party or get together, you also need glassware to match. Of course the basics work, but some occasions call for pretty set ups and prettier glasses. There are many new forms of glass that complement certain beverages. Be it the ones with larger bowls for your sangrias or the uniform, straight glasses for your whiskey that have a glint. Did we forget to mention that sparkly glasses could light up the table? Luckily through 2020 and 2021, some amazing brands for glassware popped up and here are the ones that we absolutely love!

    Vajor

    Vajor

    Available on LBB

    Known for their generally boho-chic aesthetic, they have their own line of decor and artsy home accessories, so it’s no wonder that their glassware follows suit too. It’s understated and classy aesthetic will actually match any set up. We’re loving their Slosh and Rochella drinking glasses as well as the Frosted Sherry glasses. Know more about Vajor

    Suggested Drink Pairings: Sherbets or cocktails for house parties would go great with the brand's Rochelle glasses as these are frosted and not overly dim or bright.  

    What Else: The Cortina Bamboo Drinking Glass set with a bamboo threadwork around the glass will lend a tropical feel to your Sunday parties.

    Suggested Drink Pairings: Wine wine wine. The base of these glasses aren't wide, so they're sleek and stylish, just like wine glasses should be.

    If you're looking for a showstopper, The Artment is one brand that you can't afford to ignore! Based out of Gurgaon, it has unique glass sets with a quirky vibe. Their Straw Tail Glasses come with an extended curved glass straw at the base to make it easier for you to drink two ways. Read more about The Artment here.

    Suggested Drink Pairings: The Straw Tail at the base of these glasses make them the perfect vessels to sip your favourite cocktails from. Perfect for those LIITs with friends, we say.

    What Else: The Enchanted Rose Drinking Glass with its crafty plant like build and sipping duct is another one of our faves.

    Glass Forest

    Glass Forest

    Available Online

    Known for ‘cosmic alchemy,’ Glass Forest has a range of shiny glassware. We loved their Firdaus collection, the Stemless Glasses wich are minimal and elegant with their swirled designs. For those of you after a pop of colour, go for their Juliette glass collection. Their glasses in blue, pink, green and brownish-yellow will teleport you back to the Mughal Era like you’re sipping sherbets with the emperor in the Diwan-i-Khas. Cleaning the glass might be hasslesome due to the many grooves on its surface. 

    Suggested Drink Pairings: As a Copa De Balon Glass is most known for gin, these offer a similar feel but more royal, without the stem and we suggest you sip your gin from these beauties. 

    What Else: They even have glass bottles and glass sets for cocktails and their glasses are priced at around INR 2,000.

    Smokey Cocktail

    If you’re looking to stock up on glasses for the bar, Smokey Cocktail is certainly set to raise the bar with its fine collection of wine, whisky, cocktail, dessert and shot glasses. There’s also cool beer mugs and long glasses for the folks who always prefer fruit juice at parties. Their quirky bar glasses, automatic pouring shot glasses and dragon claw goblets are a welcome addition to your cabinet, especially if you're after a functional bar. Just like the ones mentioned, there are many cool glasses and other bar accessories available at around INR 2,000.

    Suggested Drink Pairings: For their range of glasses, Whiskey, Wine, Rum or any drink would work, really!

    What Else: Felt like lifting the FIFA World Cup atleast once? You have to drink from their German Beer Glass to know what we’re talking about.

    Strokes By Namrata Mehta

    If you want to have an offbeat house party, shot glasses from Strokes By Namrata Mehta are what you need. With botanical and tropic inspired prints, these glasses are made from clear glass and we suggest you wash them gently and refrain from scrubbing as the prints might wear off. A set of two shot glasses will cost you INR 625 so spend only if you're willing to splurge.

    Suggested Drink Pairings: These are shot glasses so whatever 30ml elixir works, go for it!

    What Else: They even have transparent glass coffee mugs with jungle prints.
