Sayani posted on 23 May

The balmy summer weather is perfect for an outdoorsy kind of date. If you want to take it up a notch, try a boozy poolside date with bae at these places with perfect cocktails and good food.

Aqua @ The Park

Poolside – check, sectioned off booths for seating – double check, a bar tapping out potent mixes –check. Aqua at The Park is a great place to head to enjoy a romantic date. And the wholesome menu with really delectable bites (do try their wood-fired pizzas) makes this place perfect for a special date.

Waterside Cafe @ Hyatt

Hyatt’s trendy cafe-bar, the Waterside Cafe overlooks a sparkling pool and lush landscaped garden. You can sit inside the cafe or by the pool under the shade of tall palm trees with a glass of rose wine or chardonnay. And you must try their smashing fish ‘n chips.

Liqua @ Senses Hotel

Can anything top the idea of a romantic date by a poolside bar on a rooftop that affords a mesmerising view of the city? Nope. Perched atop the Senses Hotel in Salt Lake, with seats arranged around the pool, and dim lighting, Liqua is great for a cosy date. Give the prawns in chilly plum sauce a try while getting your spirits high. And with IPL offers and DJ nights on, this place is perfect for a fun evening with bae.

Aura Sky Bar

One of Kolkata’s snazziest new hotspots, the Aura Sky Bar’s rooftop poolside is a great place to get trippy on music and drinks. Perfect for a windy evening out with bae, the LED neons lighting up the furniture makes for a psychedelic experience that is hard to beat. Their house special LIIT will surely light up your mood, as will their delectable sizzlers.

Bay Of Bengal @ ITC Sonar

When luxury’s on your mind, then head to ITC Sonar’s Bay Of Bengal to spend an unhurried evening of sweet nothings. Evenings are the best time to head here as the moonlight cascades down on the expansive pool that overlooks this place and makes for a seriously romantic vibe while the wooden interiors give it a rustic pub look. You can use the open requests of the in-house jukebox to woo your bae with a song dedication.

The Stadel’s restro-bar Mirage is lined with glass and sits beside its poolside. Pick one of those spots close to the pool to enjoy the glow of the shimmering pool and make the most of your private rendezvous. Alternately, you can head out and sit under the hooded white umbrellas and enjoy the cool breeze. Give their juicy kebab platter a try while you sip on the  cocktails.

Park Plaza’s rooftop lounge bar Smoke Shack is a great place to hit up if you and your bae are good to groove and enjoy a heavy dose of music. While you lounge by the pool under the open sky or dance to the rhythm of the beats, do try their tasty daiquiri and gorge on some yummy grilled fish.
