Description: Cafe 1947 welcomes you to the surreal Himalayas. The name of the cafe symbolizes freedom, as India got independence in 1947. We believe food and music are the gateways to the road of enlightening ourselves.That is why we endeavor to flavor you with the best of it.We provide the most exquisite Italian dishes prepared with ethnic Italian cheese and spices.Music nights are also routine.Live music is performed by professional musicians along the river.There are also live jam sessions from time to time with visitors from around the world joining in.

Walked down the street when heard guitar playing through the door. Came in and plunged into atmosphere of friendship and brotherhood. They cook perfect Italian food, especially pizza! Must visit for everyone!

I dropped by Cafe 1947 just coz of the live music thing which was displayed at the door. I was with my childhood buddy and we were basically looking for a place to chill and converse over a few beers. The interior is quintessential himalyan wooden lodge kinds which gives a warm nostalgic ol' school feel. The view is such that u always see the river flowin by from the window as if its trying to crash the jammin sessions. The live music played was a mix of English and Hindi which impressed me a lot. At Rs 160 a beer its almost a relief from insanely priced bars in Delhi. We ordered a pizza which wasn't something exceptional but was decent. Then again, I am just back from Rome so my bars are set high to be fair. Pizza was thin crust and well made. Id definitely recommend this place.
TLDR
Atmosphere makes it worth a visit. I couldnt stop myself from grabbin the guitar and talkin on the mike. They were happy to let me to do it. (Nobody died some even clapped)

We orderes. the Trout and a Nonveg Burger. trout was ok which ic suposed to be a speciality but the Burger was just awesome. a little Tobasco and Ketchup did the trick to an already amazing burger.

Ate at couple of places in Old Manali but riverside cafe has to be one of the places if you're in mood of some italian indulgence especially Pizzas or mains. Also, has a good spread in breakfast.

Manager is a bit of heavy/ death metal fan and don't be surprised if you suddenly start hearing this music when your enjoying a nice meal.
