It’s Lit: Here’s Where We Go To Get Tipsy On Awesome LIITs In Kolkata

Raisa posted on 16 March

Long Island Iced Teas {LIITs} are not just Sheldon Cooper’s but our fav drinks when we need to get real tipsy real fast and here are the watering holes we hit to do just that.

Grid

Yowza! Definitely our go-to place when we need to get high, Grid has perhaps the most potent LIIT in the city. The relatively new bar is packed with millennials chilling to old school music and, more often than not, they’ll be holding an LIIT for dear life. The best part? Since Grid works like a stock market, the prices of the LIIT fluctuates as well so you can {if you go drinking on Monday afternoon!} get a drink for really cheap.

Café Mezzuna

Oldie but a goodie, Mezzuna’s LIITs still pack a punch. If you’re up for some major throwback to your nascent drinking days, hit Mezzuna for LIITs that pack a punch. You can ask them to adjust the coke and ice ratio depending on how strong you like your drink. Pro Tip: The Mezzuna outlet in South City is still open even though half the mall is closed and you can head there if you want a quieter ambiance than the Forum outlet.

Hoppipola

Hoppi makes everyone happy. They have all the fun stuff – giant jenga, karaoke nights, cheap booze and a great LIIT. Order a pitcher of LIIT and they’ll give you a long glass with tons of bendy straws so you can all drink from the same one. You can get their ‘Long Island Ice Freeze’ for just INR 99 and the second one for just INR 69 as part of their 99 menu.

Chilis

Chilis has one for one all day on Mondays and Tuesdays and from 4 to 8 pm on Wednesdays and Thursdays so if you’re looking for somewhere to get drunk post-work, you know where to head. If you want your drinks even more potent than normal, these guys are so confident about their cocktails, they’ll actually bring all the bottles to your table and make it right in front of you {they really take customer satisfaction seriously!}. We recommend getting a pitcher if you’re really in the drinking mood – it works out to be much more reasonable than buying by the glass.

Monkey Bar

If you want to walk home in a straight line, we recommend you don’t get an LIIT at Monkey. These guys mean business and their LIITs are not for the faint hearted. You can choose from the classic, Beamer and Bourbon {made with Jim Beam!} LIITs. Grab an LIIT and head to their outdoor smoking area {our favourite part of the bar} where you get an incredible view to go with your drink {and they have a giant screen with retro dance videos on loop which really adds to the v

TGI Fridays

Move aside regular LIITs, TGI Fridays has a list of fun, colourful and flavoured LIITs which really spices up the drinking experience. If you want a drink on the sweet-sour side, the Blackberry LIIT is the one you should go for. The Ultimate Electric LIIT is another great option – bright blue in color, it looks great on a Boomerang. They use both Smirnoff and Grey Goose in their drinks so make sure to use the menu description before choosing. Keep a look out for the great offers and deals they have {currently they have a lunch deal, both regular as well as late night happy hours and a boozy weekend brunch}.
