    Waikiki Bar

    Waikiki Bar has been a sleeper hit among the locals and tourists alike. Staying true to the name, the communal space is adorned with a clever mix of straw-thatched roof, bar with bamboo walls and rattan high chairs sitting below a roof of fairy lights placed on palm trees. Just like any good watering hole out there, a sheer variety of beers and liquors are available but their mixologists behind the busy bar also churn out splendid cocktails, Waikiki Breeze – a concoction of vodka, coconut milk, blue Curacao being the top seller. Aside from the live band, sport screening is also available.

    There is also a pool table at the far end

    Ol'Skool Bistro

    The name of the joint sums up the whole plot – old is gold! If you are looking to wander away from hipster music and backdrop, you’re in safe hands as this perennial favourite watering hole offers famous 80’s music and gets everything right tipple-wise too. The ceiling is also draped with clusters of mini bulbs, forming an asterism-like decor which does look good on Instagram too. There are also a couple of classic pub fares to put your hunger at bay to ensure you stay focused on music and put up some grooves.
