Shoe-shaped beer mugs, Glenfiddich bottle hookahs, corked pitchers – Chug It more than impresses with its presentation. It’s the ideal place to unwind at, over drinks and munchies. Although the name paints the picture of a beer-oriented bar, there is much more to their bar menu. From interesting cocktails such as the Mexican Bull {beer based} to some out-of-the-box concoctions for the teetotallers {try the Paan Lemonade for a slightly different approach to beating the heat}, they have a wide variety of palates covered.

Their menu is heavy on appetisers, starting with the Spicy Wok Tok Peanuts and Bombay Bhel, to toastines, Poutine and the regular favourites like Crispy Chili Potato. Looking for something more substantial? Choose from an array of burgers, pizzas, pasta, sliders and hunger savers like chicken steak and lamb chops. They’re not too heavy on dessert, but the mousse of the day served in a martini glass is worth a try; the flavour changes on a daily basis, so ask your server to tell you the flavour du jour.

For the sheesha lovers, there’s oodles of variety in terms of flavours, and priced at just INR 450, you won’t be smoking away your month’s salary/pocket money either. If you’re stepping into Chug It early in the day and aren’t quite in the mood to start chugging, opt for one of their fresh fruit smoothies or shakes. We hear the Breakfast in a Glass {flak seeds + banana + skimmed milk + yogurt} is a great way to start the day.

While the place is super affordable, you get a further 20% discount on food if you’re a student, so don’t forget to carry your ID proof!
