With its future as exciting as the course of its history, Pune is considered to be the cultural capital of Maharashtra. Though it preserves its strong old-world charm, Pune is slowly evolving to become a thoroughly cosmopolitan city. Pune?s burgeoning IT sector has been the strongest driver of its unbridled growth and development. However, we understand that long working hours in an IT firm could get mildly stifling. For those feeling most bereaved, we offer you a short list of the city?s most relaxing lounges where you could just wind down after a hard day at work. Evvia Sky Lounge ? Courtyard by Marriott Pune City Centre (Bund Garden Road) With a breath-taking panoramic ringside view of the city, Evvia can be deemed as one of the best night rooftop lounges in Pune. At the end of the deck sits a brightly lit circular bar, which, owing to its arrangement and impressive bartending, will keep you gawked. First thing you?d notice is that everything here is evidently loungeish. The plush lighting, the comfortable couches, the high chairs. Revel in this space as you hear the soft buzz of the distant traffic and are met with a cool zephyr. Mindful of Pune?s biting cold winter, the hotel provides shawls when the weather dips far too low. The DJ is constantly belting out quirky tracks to set your mood for the evening. Enjoy the delectable North Indian, Italian cuisines, and the finger food offered with some exquisite wines, as well as classics and contemporary cocktails.
