What Makes It Awesome?

When it comes to getting a drink in Pune's entertainment district, Koregaon Park, we are always spoiled with options. But you can always head to Mundhwa, now better known as KP Annexe and head to Kapila Matrix, which is a building full of bars. What a fun part destination, right?

Local Gastro Bar is one such night club located in Koregaon Park Annexe (Mundhwa) that offers great vibes, food, music and drinks. The bar has an underground vibe to it: Dim lights, high rise leather chairs, a big dancing space and very nicely lit up bar counter. Something that will also attract your attention is a beautiful full wall mural that is hand-painted.

As the name suggests, Local is a gastro bar which means their quality of food is top notch. Some of our favourites to try here are the South Borne prawns, Park Street kathi rolls and croquefetish. The South Borne prawns comes coasted in a delicious concoction of baked tomatoes, parsley, garlic and lemon. The Park Street kathi rolls are your authentic Calcutta style rolls that resemble the taste of Kusum rolls on Park Street, Kolkata. And, the Croquefetish is made of bullets of corn, cheese, potatoes and jalapenos. When it comes to alcohol you have to give their LiiTs a try. They are so potent that you won't be able to stay off the dancefloor.

A meal for two here will set you back INR 2,000 and a pint of beer is priced at INR 219.

What Could Be Better?

We love the space but their smoking area or outdoor seating area is too cramped in the Mundhwa outlet and should be extended for sure.
