For locals looking for a good time, Pune is fast becoming a party hub par excellence. If you needed proof, take the burgeoning number of Mumbai party people who head south for the weekend — expressly to hit the city’s rocking watering holes.

If you haven’t quite explored the pubs and bars that are pushing Pune to the top of the party ladder, LIVEINSTYLE.COM presents an exclusive list…



Flying Saucer Sky Bar

Touted as the “largest stand-alone bar not only in Pune but India,” The Flying Saucer Sky Bar is an idea that has taken off! Seated on a cheery pink sofa, you’ll be amazed by vistas of a busy city skyline, with Viman Nagar laid out beneath you. As the name suggests, the venue offers a generous outdoor space, matched liberally by its contemporary, clubby interior — making it an ideal Sunday brunch location; after you’ve rocked there on any other night of the week. Settle in with a Cool Colada or indulge in a Johnnie Walker Blue Label, while you order Chicken Suimai and Eggplant Chips to get you started. You’ll soon come to expect recurrently impressive food, the occasional live music performance, great guest DJs and a galactic ride that is sure to leave you asking for more.

Irish House Pune

If you are looking to pub hop, why not travel a short distance to another Viman Nagar party destination? The Irish House is nestled away on Level 2 at Phoenix Market City and you don’t have to be Irish to love it! With its cosy interiors and warm ‘pubby’ feel, this is a comforting nook for a bite and a beer — made all the better during happy hours. Order sliders and onion rings while you peruse the rest of their menu; though we’d recommend a portion of nachos too! Pause with a Black Dog Triple Gold Reserve and maybe consider a late show at the cinema next door afterwards. We can tell you from experience, it’s a routine you could get used to!

Its chic interiors inspire you to take fun seriously, so we’d suggest you make a commitment to partying into the wee hours at this Koregaon Park pub. With an impressive array of wines on offer (their wall-to-wall wine cooler says it all), this swanky lounge does not disappoint in the F&B department. Then it ups your experience with prompt service and catchy tunes. The weekends are shoulder-bumpingly busy, but what fun is a dance floor that isn’t packed? So stroll into Oakwood Premier to partake of the action — it starts out slow and builds tempo as the night wears on, making it the perfect place to catch a quick drink after a day at the office, or to rock the night away with buddies until well past midnight.


A stone’s throw from The Oak Lounge, in the Koregaon Park extension area, is this global favourite. Hard Rock Café Pune has delighted locals since it set up shop here in January 2009, bringing with it the rock ‘n’ roll vibe that patrons across the world know and love. With a 120-seat restaurant, an impressive bar area and an 80-seat open courtyard (as well as HRC’s signature Rock Shop), this expansive space ticks all the boxes if you are looking to end your day on a high note. From great American cuisine in a music-infused atmosphere to the rare memorabilia on display, the Pune outpost of Hard Rock Café reminds you why this global brand is beloved by partygoers everywhere!
