“Lively & Abuzz....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2013

Nice and lively place to go to with frenz..
Superb music, attentive service, cosy ambience..

When me and my friend decided to meet here for a quick drink after work, I thought she must be joking that the place gets real crowded and therefore, we better reach early.. Proven wrong for sure, I was..

the place was buzzing with ppl - mostly corporate crowd at around 6:30 pm and I could see hopefuls of getting a table hanging out near the bar area for meanwhile.

the beer towers looked huge and the half yard glass was cute.. though i wonder how can one have their beer from that so very tall glass.. I am not a beer fan, but I did taste the samplers and I must say, I was impressed..

For snacks, we ordered a fish n chips - very nicely done.. the fish was righly crumbed and was crispy.. the tartar sauce was fresh too. And on the friends recommendation we ordered fiery chicken pizza. and it did not disappoint... Though I could not confirm it but it gave a wood-fired oven taste.. thin crust, balanced flavors melt in mouth.

All in all, must go place, if havent been there already..

“Best place to enjoy fresh beer and some great food!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2013

The ambiance is great, the food excellent and the beer amazing.

If you have not been here before and want to know about a place that serves fresh beer, you should visit this place and provide your feedback.

I have been here multiple times in the past 2 years and all my visits have been worth remembering for the beer and the food.

“Just Chill!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2013

Great wheat beer and a really chilled out ambience! A perfect place to hang out with colleagues or friends for an after-work beer or just some drinks. The only place which I've seen packed on a Monday evening! And the food is good- their cheese and broccoli is to die for and so is the non-veg platter. Can't say much about the other veggie stuff as I've never had any ;)

But all in all, a definite recommendation for hanging out amidst a relaxed atmosphere. The DJ needs to keep updating the playlist though- I kind of know it by heart now! :)

“Good place to hang out with friends!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2013 via mobile

Met up with a friend based on an exemplary review by a friend. As soon as you enter the place you feel that its small in size however once you're down one level you feel the full impact of the bar. Getting a table on the weekend is definitely difficult owing to the popularity of the place. However, once you get a table you dont feel like leaving the place anyways.

The draught beer is definitely the highlight of the place and the food matches up to the same if not exactly at the same level. However, the best beer i think is still at howzaat in galaxy mall (my own opinion ofcourse). The crowd is great, for the time being and the ambience is good as well.

Its a place that i have gone both with friends and family as well. Its a good place to hang out. Though the service can be improved a bit as well.

In a nutshell, would def. recommend the ppace to friends.
