Recently I was contacted by the good folks of Nearbuy to review ‘ Barebones‘ the coolest balcony bar of Indiranagar as this place is the first venue of upcoming Great Indian Pub Crawl hosted by Nearbuy.
The Team of Nearbuy is coming up with the #TheGreatIndianPubCrawl, an event where one can Crawl. Chug. Repeat! Are you already excited like me? If yes then you have more reasons to be happy. One epic night and three happening pubs with unlimited drinks on the house. Yes unbelievable but absolutely true.
At a minimal cost, this crawl allows you to chill with your friends, meet new people, sample a variety of drinks, experience Indiranagar’s buzzing nightlife and be a part of the awesome party you deserve.
Block your calendar for Wednesday, 22nd March.
Meeting Point – Barebones, Indiranagar
Timing – 7:30 pm
First we are going to start off with Barebones , then the next venue is going to be Jonah’s Terrace Lounge & finally we will end the party at Cirrus. So this Wednesday is going to be turned into new Friday and this is definitely your solution of mid-week crisis.
Review of Barebones- The Balcony Bar
Barebones is situated at the 100 feet road, Indiranagar amidst all the happening pubs around this location.This place creates it’s own niche of nightlife by keeping the decor simple,in house DJ’s who will make sure you are on your feet dancing the whole night & a finger licking food menu to take care of your drink’s accompaniments.
They have three separate sections for seating. One is outdoor with less crowd, low noise of the loud music inside and this area serves as a smoking area. Each tables are kept at a good distance from each other, so one can enjoy the privacy. The second section is at the same ground floor but no smoking zone and one can enjoy the loud music synonymous with a bar. The first floor with a balcony setting and a bar caters to the young as well as office goers who prefers to enjoy their drinks with a lovely view of the outside. The Pricing of this place is one of the reason of this place’s popularity. Regular offers like the recently launched New Shots Menu where shots starting at Rs149 onwards come up with a 1 + 1 offer makes this place a most visit one.
I visited this place with my family as this place is kid friendly unlike other places. But make sure you choose to sit at outdoor and avoid seating close to those tables where people are smoking. After we settle in, the Chef came to our table and we decided to go with his recommendations.
For the Drinks, they had an impressive drink menu ranging from speciality shots to signature drinks.
As we have earlier decided that we would like to be sloshed on the night of Pub Crawl, so ordered mocktails instead.
BareBones Orange – A fruity orange and mixed fruit blended perfectly with a scoop of vanilla icecream
Beach Affair – A refreshing combo of Lichi juice, Blue Curacao syrup and sprite
Virgin Mojito – The classic drink of freshly crushed mint leaves, muddled with lime & sugar,topped with sparkling water.
Choco Blast Frappe – The most loved Chocolate & Vanilla Icecream blended with milk and whipping cream
Spicy Cashew Nuts – Fried Cashew Nuts tossed in a homemade spicy spices served with inhouse mayo and Julianne salads
Nachos – Crispy corn tortilla chips topped with pico de gallo ( salsa made from finely chopped tomato,onion,jalepano,fresh coriander leaves,salt and lime juice), melted mixed cheese ( cheddar & amul processed cheese), avocado pulp & rocket lettuce
Peri-Peri Potato Wedges – Addictive savoury fried potato wedges tossed in peri peri sauce and served with tomato ketchup and mayo
Cottage Cheese on Fire – Pan grilled cottage cheese marinated in a fiery plum tomato sauce and tossed in red onion and tri colored bell peppers
As we are almost full with the lip-smacking finger food and well-made mocktails,we straight away ordered for their Veg Pizza (Store bought pizza base, with a thin layer of concasse, then a layer of pan tossed exotic veggies like broccoli, tri colored peppers, mushrooms with an optional pineapple toppings. Finally covered with crushed garlic and a thick layer of grated mozzarella).
From Make Your Own Pasta menu, we tasted Spaghetti in a alfredo sauce (white sauce)with no vegetables, but disappointed with the over cooked pasta and less quantity of sauce,turning the pasta almost dry after few minutes.
One can go for their most ordered Thai Red curry with cottage cheese & vegetables with steamed rice for main course. For Non-vegetarian’s one must try their Lamb Shank Stifatho (Red wine braised baby lamb shanks with exotic greens,garlic mash and wine jus)
Dark Chocolate Cake
Chocolate Lava Cake (In-house)
All desserts were served with a single scoop of Vanilla icecream ,Green colored cherry and a mint sprig.
Overall this is a great place which is still unexplored by most of the party animals.This place boast of being the ‘First Shots Bar of India.’ This is the place where you can feel comfortable,have carefree conversations and enjoy a stress free time. Attentive Staff’s, less crowd , wonderful food makes this place more friendly and enjoyable.
