For an after work drink, or a place to spend a weekend evening, bars have become an informal place at which to just hang out. Skilled bartenders are experimenting with an array of spirits that weren’t always available and the food too, has grown to encompass more than just French fries. The nominees for the INCA Best Bar of the Year are an eclectic bunch, ideal for any mood.
Mumbai/Bengaluru/NCR - Social
Adjustable over numerous size formats and with 14 outlets all over the cities, the versatility of Social is what has made it stand out from other bars all over the country. Taking Indian influences and giving them a twist, the menu features enough to return for.
Kolkata - Shisha Bar Stock Exchange
Fluctuating drink prices, a rustic interior and prime location are some of the reasons that Kolkata has taken a shine to Shisha Bar Stock Exchange. That you can get Maggi interpreted in multiple ways is probably another.
Hyderabad - Olive Bistro
Olive Bistro is situated on a terrace overlooking a lake. Its signature Mediterranean influenced food coupled with potent cocktails and that ‘holiday in Greece’ air has established it as a firm favourite for Hyderabad’s party folks.
Pune - High Spirits
A gig venue, a bar and the kind of place where the bartenders know your name, High Spirits has established itself as a firm favourite for Pune’s drinkers. Its grungy vibe and well made cocktails round out the offerings.
Goa - Cohiba
On most nights, you can find a live band playing at Cohiba, which offers Indian and Italian food to go with its strong cocktails. A sprawling restaurant located on the edge of Candolim, the bar is a pit stop for thirsty travellers.
Chennai - 365 AS
With something for everyone, 365 AS at the Hyatt Regency is a wonderful place to kick back with a brew. Your choice of indoors and outdoors seating, large screens to see a game and groovy music all work in this bar’s favour.
