Holi High: Get Drunk On Spiked Thandai And Guzzle Gujiyas At This Bar

Raisa posted on 28 February


Monkey Bar’s Holi High menu is everything you need to get into the Holi mood — desi-style food, spiked thandai, tons of colourful decor and more!

Holi Hai!

There’s no better festival to get high than Holi and there’s no better place to do it than Monkey Bar. Monkey has an uber-cool Holi High menu that will have you sinning on all your favourite festive desi treats. Vegetarians, there’s good news for you! Everything on the menu is 100% veggie so you can order away.

Adventurous foodies with a taste for quirky flavours, try the spiked thandai — it’s everything you love about the drink {cool and refreshing} with an added punch from the booze. It’s certainly a flavourful roller coaster ride.


Festive Feasting

The menu is definitely for those who care little about their carb intake and cholesterol levels because it is absolutely sinfully indulgent and delicious. We were all {quite literally} stuffing our faces with the Bedmi Puris. Served with a spicy aloo curry, you’ll get all the dhaba feels while eating this one.

Another one of our favs on the menu is the Monkey Gujiyas — a traditional Holi dessert taken up a notch in true Monkey style, the gujiyas are flaky, sweet dumplings stuffed with cream cheese and nuts and finished with tangy dried cranberries over the top.

We love how Monkey Bar sticks to its desi roots while remaining a hangout destination for millenials.

Anything Else?

Still haven’t gotten enough of the Holi feels? You have to check out the decor. The whole bar is decorated {from scratch by the staff} in bright Holi colours and fairy lights. There’s also a section on the far end where you can paint your hand in bright colours and leave your handprint on the wall. Don’t worry — the paint comes off really easily.

Where: Monkey Bar.

When: Till March 4.
