Wakad Peeps, 5 Reasons You Won't Miss Koregaon Park Anymore

Divya posted on 02 February

Wakad and Koregaon Park might be separated by distance {45 minutes to be precise}, but that doesn’t mean they’re all that different. In fact, over the last couple of years, Wakad has come into its own giving locals enough fun places to hang out and dine at, that don’t involve making the trek all the way across town.

Agent Jack's

India’s first “bidding price bar”, Agent Jack’s lets you hone your negotiating skills while you order your drinks for the night. Like its Koregaon Park counterpart, Agent Jack’s is a hotspot for the drinks-and-dinner crowd, and a great place to catch up with friends. Their loaded nachos and their charcoal grilled items make it a pocket-friendly place to grab munchies over a drink or two.

Largo Pizzeria

One of four outlets, Largo Pizzeria at Wakad looks like a cosy place to hang out, but cute enough for a casual first date. From a 16″, 18″, to 20″ monster size, their pizzas are guaranteed to satisfy your cravings. We hear the ‘Ocoli’ {onion, corn and olive} and the ‘chick-a-peno’ {jerk chicken and jalapeno} pizzas are worth a try, as are their virgin mojitos.
