Being a karaoke aficionado, I have always been on the look out for decent place where one can have a good drink and belt out a few numbers . With a nice ambience and great service to boot from Sugan , Veera and team, this pub is a must visit for people with similar taste. The choice of liquor and cuisine is pretty good. Incidentally karaoke happens on Thursday and Saturday every week.

Situated in Lobby Level of GRT Grand and right next to the popular J.Hind restaurant is this chilled out bar. I had one of the best domestic draught beers here. Sure to visit again.

We were on our way to J Hind and stepped into this bar for a pre dinner drink.

It is a nice place on two levels with the tables being placed in a way that give a little privacy. When we went there a couple of stand up comics were doing their stuff
making conversation quite difficult.

They offer a very good choice of drinks, both imported and domestic at rather stiff prices. However, imported drinks attract Sgst 9%+ Cgst 9% + Vat 58 %+ and another vat at 14.5% i.e. a whopping 90 % of the bill ! Looks like the Government takes almost half of what we pay for an imported drink!

I can not comment on the snack menu, whick looks good and features a few Bhutanese offerings.

This is a good place to take business guests
