Dressed up to look like a library, Watson's at Vasanth Nagar is way cooler than its Ulsoor avatar. With a bookshelf handy for the lone visitors, or the bored visitors, the place exudes a lovely warmth. The food includes mostly bar food, with a range of kababs and quick eats such as masala peanuts, chana jor garam, crispy chilli corn and so on. Plus there are subs and pizzas for the posh drinkers. One can, however, happily drink beer, or over-sweetened cocktails (if that's your thing), with some old-school chilli chicken, mogo (golden fried cassava) or mutton chops. And yes, they have chilli beef on the menu too.
The need for pocket-friendly bars never end. Every city is in great requirement for such bars that are trendy but easy on pockets. Bengaluru is no different. Bengaluru is simply crawling with bars and each one better than the other so finding out what suits you best out of all takes some skills. Handpicking the ideal bar for you needs some looking and this is where we can help you. There is one place that will suit your taste perfectly, as it is popular, trendy and budget-friendly too. ‘Watson’s’ is a place that is much in demand by the tipplers as it gives them a fab ambience plus a drool-worthy bar menu. It’s situated in Vasanth Nagar at Kodava Samaja Building and is always bursting with life especially on weekends.
No tippler can find fault with Watson’s bar menu. It’s a vast array of global labels and some heady house concoctions just waiting to be sampled. Try a kokum & mango martini or filter coffee margarita or rasamaa. Watson’s signature cocktails are really interesting for they bear the regional touch. Complementing the booze is a splendid nibble menu that tackles multiple cuisines at the same time. You won’t go wrong by munching on, cheezling bhel, cheese cigars, podimmas, karawari prawns, stuffed kalmi kebab, Syrian Kerala beef, chilli honey sesame pork, paneer vepudu, Watson’s chilli crab, Andhra gun powder wings, chorizo spring rolls, shaking beef and beef takatak. Mains selection is comparatively shorter but is enough to satisfy any hunger pangs you might have left. Savour, naga pork curry, ros omelette pav, paneer saagwala, beef massaman curry, thupka, pumpkin pulusu, Goan fish curry and mutton chop curry.
If you happen to be short on time then opt for Watsons express lunch, to which you can add a mug of draught beer to complete the package. To fully enjoy the mains throw in a bread basket to mop up the curries. Finally to coddle your sweet tooth dig into a selection of divine desserts like, no bake chocolate cake, old monk & kokum cheese cake, apple pie, brownie pie and Chef’s special. The interiors at Watson’s are designed to exude serenity, informality and sense of homeliness. A sprawling sunlit room with exposed brick walls and wide arched windows gives the first impression of the bar. Add on of wall arts and black metal chandeliers makes up for style.
