The award-winning restaurant BAR BAR has made its way to Bengaluru at Phoenix Marketcity Whitefield. We’re all set to introduce the novel concept of ‘More of You, Less of the Bill’, this June after successfully doing so in Pune and Mumbai. At the heart of the concept is the fundamental idea that drinking in a group is rewarding in many ways, but at BAR BAR it allows you to save money. In other words, the more people on a table the lower the bill! Also being introduced for the first time in the country is the ‘E-Savings Calculator’ tab which enables anyone ordering to see their savings and not just the total bill.
The drinks menu has been categorized into Popular, Premium and Luxury – each category contains a selection of spirits: whisky, vodka, rum, gin and even liqueurs. If the entire group / table sticks to a category and orders at one go, they can hit MWP (Maximum Wholesale Price). At MWP drinks are as low as Rs 99. The key innovation to look out for is the Bartender’s Bottles that are community drinking trays with a 750ml of potent cocktail, a bar snack and garnish.
In true gastro pub style, the food at BAR BAR is drinks-friendly with a dash of innovation by Chef Paul Kinny. The menu at BAR BAR Bengaluru is completely different from Mumbai and Pune, and apart from the usual suspects like Nachos there are bar snacks like Jalapeno & Cheese Popcorn, Double Cooked Pork Belly, Baked Cheesy Masala Crab, a local inspired Mangalorean Mutton, Bruschetta Geniovese, Nuts & Crunch Bhel, Chicken Wings 4 Ways and more. There is a dedicated section from the Tandoor with kebab platters like Paneer Aachari, Tandoori Broccoli, Aachari Jhinga, Fisk Tikka, Tandoori Potatoes, etc. are some of the kebabs that you’ll find on the menu. There is a section of delicious Salads and Grills for the more health conscious drinker as well.
The space is designed with a vibe of lending itself to a neighbourhood bar with a dash of retro and industrial grunge. Some unique décor elements include a storage wall for guests to keep aside their shopping bags, post office drinkers to store their laptop bags before proceeding to their table for a relaxed and fun drinking experience. Some pop Neon LED signages to add to the retro neighbourhood bar vibe.
