Named for the floor of the landmark Bangalore building, Barton Center, on which it is perched, 13th Floor affords diners a panoramic view of the city, especially the Vidhana Soudha and surrounding areas, alongside excellent and innovative cocktails and food. 13th Floor is known for its potent and perfectly balanced cocktails, of which we highly recommend the 'Rosemary G&T', 'Rose and Rye', 'The Don Draper' (a mix of vodka with fresh grapefruit and rosemary), and 'The Midnight Oil' - a heady combination of coffee, dark rum, with caramel and banana notes. There is also a selection of fresh mocktails for those who do not imbibe, of which the 'Caliph’s Cooler' and 'Nukkad' are great choices. To nibble along with your drinks, order the 'Gunpowder Egg Roast', 'Butter Garlic Parmesan' or 'Sticky Hot and Sweet Thai Sriracha'. 'Very Naughty French Fries', the 'Bon-Bon Chicken' (the establishment’s take on Chilli Chicken with 4 variants of chillies), 'Thai Crispy Beef', or the 'Super Crunchy Pork Bites'. Any of the Asian dishes off the mains section will leave you happy and contented with your choice. They also have their take on a hard to find a regional dish, the 'Hyderabadi Deewan E Handi', a vegetarian prep. There is an expansive Sunday buffet which is a great way to spend the afternoon taking in the cityscape and also get a taste of a variety of dishes from 13th Floor’s menu. Do give it a try with the family.
