Forget the Faluknuma Palace, Biryanis and the Nizams of Hyderabad (though that may be difficult). If you’re in the Hyderabad this T20 season the only thing you should be focusing on is cheering on the cricketers. To make things a little easier we've rounded some great options in the city to watch the match and enjoy an evening of cricket and entertainment!
Finz Ebony Boutique Hotel ,Banjara Hills - This roof top restaurant and bar is quite popular but for cricket fans it’s one of the best options to watch matches. With not one but 6 big screens, 20% discount on ala carte & unlimited starters with alcohol at Rs. 700, Finz is a great find for cricket enthusiasts.
Xtreme sports bar, Banjara Hills- Nothing like watching a sporting event in an actual SPORTS bar. With three outlets all over the city this bar is very popular with sports fans. It's a great atmosphere to be in on game night when everyone is cheering on their team and watching the match on a large screen. Known for their monstrous beer keg and divine cocktails Xtreme Sports Bar seems a great match/place to watch the match!
Ten Downing Street , Begumpet - It is one of the oldest spots in the city but attracts large crowds even today. The wooden interiors and artwork remind you of a traditional English pub and patrons love their menu and keep coming back for more. Watching the game on their screens with a crowd of enthusiastic jovial cricket fans and chomping down some yummy grub is an ideal way to spend this T20 season.
Underdeck Taj Banjara, Banjara Hills - As the name suggests the decor makes you feel like you are on the deck of a ship. With top quality food and of course nothing less is expected from a Taj property it also offers great IPL discounts. Beer buckets for Rs. 500 and 2 starters plus 2 IMFL (Indian made foreign liquor) for Rs. 1000 along with super sized screens is a great way to enjoy the march with your friends.
Pump Gaming Lounge - Sometimes watching the match with your family means you might need a venue that’s a little kid friendly. The Pump is a gaming hotspot and extremely popular with not only teenagers but adult avid video gamers. There is no alcohol but there is plenty of snacks, crazy cricket fans and massive screens to enjoy the game, not to mention special IPL offers throughout this season.
