Ten-Second Takeaway

What’s famous about the whole of University Road {apart from being huge}, is there are tons of places to chill at with the buds. So, today, we present you a list that’ll tell you exactly what to do when you’re around Savitribai Phule Pune University.

Rahul 70 MM

When it comes to watching a movie at the lowest price possible, nothing beats Rahul 70 MM on University Road. The talkies see a lot of attraction, especially amongst the students. With prices ranging between INR 70 and INR 200, we say why not?

Shopping At E-Square

Now, watching a movie at E-Square can be quite expensive, but shopping here isn’t. The first floor of the mall is filled with gifts, stationery and accesories’ shops. The best part is most of the stores out here offer up to 30-40% discount almost all year round. Besides, if you’re not in mood for shopping, you can always eat an ice cream out here!

Class got over before time? Head to Frozen Monkey with the squad to spend some great time over a mug of beer. We recommend you hit the place between 4.00 pm and 7.00 pm for the Happy Monkey Hours. Get a peg of Smirnoff and Signature for just INR 99; a peg of VAT 69, Red Label and Black Dog for INR 199 and a peg of Black Label for INR 299.

If you’re going on a Tuesday, you bagged an awesome deal for you. How you ask? Frozen Monkey offers 10% off on your entire liquor bill all day long, every Tuesday.

Just 500 metres away from University’s main gate near SB Road is Sampan, one of the most famous chaupati of Pune. From Indian Chinese to Punjabi cuisine, this place has it all. We recommend try their tandoori chicken for INR 220, a plate of schezwan fried rice for INR 200 and prawns biryani for INR 300.

Kolkata Paan Shop Next To Sampan

After a scrumptious meal at Sampan, how about try some authentic Kolkata meetha pan? Next to Sampan, on your left, is a small kiosk that sells the most delicious and juciest paan for just INR 15. His Benarasi paan is also a must-try!

The Chef's Way Cafe

A day long of lectures and roaming around the entire campus can tire you out. And, at end all you want is a cup of goo coffee with some chocolatey tart. We recommend you try The Chef’s Way Cafe on Khadki. A quaint cafe with an outdoor seating arrangement, this place serves everything from sandwiches, coolers, pastas, desserts and salad. The roast chicken cajun spice sandwich for INR 220 and green apple mojito for INR 110 are a must-try.
