Continuing with the series of posts about the city, today I'm writing about my favorite lounge bars in Pune. There are lots of options for clubs, bars and lounges in the city, but these are my favorites where I go pretty often!
Home to misguided youth, wannabe adults and golden oldies, High offers solace to one and all thanks to cheap alcohol, great food and its rejuvenating ambience. You don’t need to be formal/dressed up/dressed down/ or presumptuous, just chill and gravitate over to Da High to let your hair down, if you have any left. High Spirits takes its music seriously and features top bands and djs from across the country along with a vast array of international artists. Besides these they also host stand up comedy nights almost every week. They have the longest running Karaoke in the city and host the city’s craziest theme parties. I can be found here pretty regularly!
Mix @ 36
Situated in the Westin Hotel, Mix is the is the best next stop to head to once you're done partying at high. When a bar has a pool table & a foosball table & outdoor seating overlooking a river, there is not much more you can ask for. If you're in the mood to dance, the inner section has a dance floor otherwise, you can chill in the open air area outside and enjoy the weather! The drinks never disappoint and staff is always helpful. They also show various live sport events on a projector outside so you can watch the match as you party.
Stone Water Grill
Besides the fantastic food they offer, Stone Water Grill is also one of the best best lounge bars in Pune because of the tasteful decor and lighting of this sprawling property. The alfresco seating is very lounge and relaxed, with generous spaces and comfortable couches laid around neatly. Its chic lighting makes it even more comfortable for both a romantic outing or a dinner with friends over a hearty conversation. Besides all this, they also offer unique cocktails and lots of interesting flavors.
