For those in the Whitefield area, this is another brewpub in your vicinity, though it is still a good 20 minutes away from something central like Phoenix Mall. Quite a large space, with indoor, outdoor and terrace seating. On the weekend evening that I visited, I saw a number of families with members ranging from kids to senior citizens, making this a place for the family. We began with a beer sampler, tried the Blonde Lager called the 'GPB', the 'Soul Surfer', a wheat beer, 2 of the seasonal brews, the Bangalore Daze which is an IPA and a Stout. While pretty much all were too high on the bitterness levels for me – perhaps you may find a brew that works for you. You could give the 'Crispy Lotus Stem' a try. Quite a generous portion in a very Indian-Chinese sauce, if that is the sort of thing you like. For something a little more substantial, especially with children at the table, the 'Vietnamese Hot Pot Noodle Soup with Chicken' (heads up, it says chicken and prawn on the menu, but the option is between the 2). The menu is quite large with a mix of Indian and international. You have complete meals – platters, bowls and the like. Sharing platters of starters are also available.
Very few bars in Bengaluru offers a family environment, so couples always end up in a multi-cuisine restaurant or at a food court along with their kids rather than enjoying their share of nightlife at some happening nightspot. Which is why we have few places in our mind you should check out if you want to party without leaving the kids behind. Red Rhino is one! Nestled in the heart of a trendy neighbourhood in Bengaluru, Red Rhino is an ideal spot for families to party. Rather than being a dimly lit enclave for pub crawlers, this space is often invaded by people of all age groups, which makes it a comfortable family drinking scene. Red Rhino is located at Uptown Square, Hoskote Road in Whitefield.
Being a microbrewery, Red Rhino churns out a variety of delicious house-brewed beers accompanied by a superb grub spread that takes care of your every culinary need. You may want chicken wings with your beer or shawarma, menu is eclectic enough to provide all. Ask for their beer sampler to taste the craft beers before ordering what you like in pint size. If not beer, settle down with a bottle of nice wine. Tuck into an array of nibbles to pair your beer. Wash down your lager with, truffle fries, lasooni chicken kalmi kebab, PF Changs dynamite prawns, soft tacos with spiced cottage cheese, hoisin chilli mushroom bao, mutton pepper fry and hara bhara kaju kebab. Dig deeper by binging on a variety of burgers, oriental gravies, Indian curries and pastas.
Indulge in a little sweetness before wrapping up the evening. Sample, baked Nutella cheesecake, sticky toffee & date pudding, churros with spiced warm chocolate, scream ice-cream and flaming crme brulee with blueberry. Puff on a shisha to elevate your evening. Take a whirl on the dance floor between courses. This multi-level microbrewery comes close to spilling during weekends when horde of tipplers pop in for a good time. Richly decorated in sleek modern style, Red Rhino flows into a variety of seating types depending on your mood. Its fitted with contemporary chandeliers, fun wall art, tall arched windows, composing a pleasing eye-catching image. Climb up to their terrace section for al fresco dining.
