The sleepy town of Lucknow, also known as the city of Nawabs, boasts of some exceptional British-era structures and some scrumptious Mughlai fare. Flocked by tourists from across the globe to experience the grandiose monuments which are a reminder of India’s great history, Lucknow can rightfully be called a paradise. Replete with some of the most iconic restaurants in the country, Lucknow is every foodie’s haven. And one of the most vibrant, lively and musical spaces to explore in the “city of Nawabs and Kebabs” is Percussion, which lives up to its name.
Enter the lounge and Jim Morrison, perched on the wall, greets you with his quintessential brooding gaze. True to its name, Percussion also has pictures of Metallica and Pink Floyd adorned on the walls which will delight music aficionados and make them feel at home. The space is cozy, impeccably designed comprising exposed brick walls, comfy wooden/leather couches, and bean bags coupled with some dim lighting, making it a great spot to spend the evening in the company of friends and lovers.
Serving an amalgamation of Continental, North Indian and Asian fare to its guests, the must-order items include American Fried Chicken (the original fried chicken recipe from Southern California), Tawa Fish (Fish fillet marinated in their special dry spice powder and rice flour, grilled on a tawa), Lehsuni Chicken Tikka (garlic infused boneless chunks of chicken charred in cola fired oven), and Fish Orly (a crunch fried fish straight from the suburbs of Paris). Italian cuisine lovers can opt from an array of delectable pizzas and pastas while those who have a penchant for Oriental food should try their Spicy Singapore Bowl, Tokyo Soup Bowl or the Bangkok Bowl to experience an incredible evening.
The drinks menu is an interesting mix of your favourite single malts, premium scotches, whiskies and cocktails that include regulars such as the Mojito, Margarita, Blue Frog, Long Island Iced Tea, Savy Grog, Sangria and the like, which you can enjoy with some cool music playing the background outdoors, while seeping in the view of the city.
All in all, those looking for feel-good vibes should head to Percussion right away for some tantalizing bites and great hospitality.
