I visited Shillong the first week of March 13. I didn't stay in this hotel but found the bar and the restaurant to be very cozy and affordable.
On the first night of my visit I wanted to hear some live music and so on the advice of the hotel manager where I was staying visited Hotel Center Point lounge bar called "Cloud 9". To say the least the place looked dilapidated and the cost of drinks and food sky high. After a couple of drinks I left in utter disappointment with the size of my walled depleted to quite an extent. On the advice of someone at the bar headed to Hotel Pegasus Crown where at the reception the owner and the manager greeted me with a friendly smile. I was told that the bar was on the first floor so I got on the elevator and headed towards it.
Let me tell all the folks who read this and love their drinks the Stallion Bar was exactly what I was looking for. The bar is well stocked and the drinks were cheap and served with honestly and smile. I loved the place from the beginning and spent both my evenings here. The waiter named Sangma didnt smile too much but was a no nonsensical person. The barman was no different. As you go on having your drinks you and he become more and more friendly. They served peanuts free of cost. What I loved most of all, and I have not seen this in any other bar I have visited all over the world, was a plate filed with chopped onion, green chilli, garlic and lime all separately placed and not mixed. Fantastic, this was free too. The food came from the restaurant downstairs so took a little time but was delicious.
There are a mix group of people you see here. The youth having fun, the business folks doing business and a few oldsters like me just here for a nice and affordable drink. On the night of my second visit I met a professor from IIM Shillong and we got along quite well.
The restaurant on the ground floor level was friendly, efficient and very affordable. The chinese food that I ordered left me nothing more to be desired. I youre alone you can order half a plate. The decor too was very humble and acceptable.
I will definitely drop come here every time I visit Shillong. The next time I will probably stay here as I see from the reviews here that is nice and affordable and the view is far better than the Hotel Center Point.
