Chisptead is a bit of a smorgasbord; it still has the gentrified air of its predecessor with its muted dark walls, attracting slick suits and svelte dresses. Yet, with a glimmering curtain of beads, sultry velvet sofas and hip hop nights, you almost think it wants to be a nightclub for tattooed biceps and high heels. Perhaps the best outcome of this confusion is its cocktail menu – expansive but consistently outstanding drinks, at youthful prices, with a standard measure of 60 ml and inclusive of all taxes. The services is chatty and will happily recommend drinks from the exciting cocktail menu or let the bartender whip up something special. Their classics are top-notch but do try some of Chipstead’s best, such as the smoked whiskey-based drinks, the Chennai-esque Southern Spice or the classy bourbon-based Run for the Roses.
Chennai’s party scene has taken a glamourous turn by the arrival of new found fancy-but-fabulous pubs woven into the fabric of city’s gastronomy. Forget the corner bars with casual colourful décor, grow up and give these elegant places a chance to redefine you. With the onslaught of luxurious five star hotels, the city’s gastronomic scene has undergone a huge makeover. Big wigs like Taj Coromandel hotel have invaded the night scene of Chennai with their string of fabulous restaurants and pubs. Give the cosy hip places a miss and go stylish with places like ‘Chipstead’. The name pays homage to the site on which the Taj is built, which was earlier the spot where a bungalow called Chipstead stood. The pub is a slick swanky place created to give the locals a taste for drinking in luxurious setting. The crowd it pulls is just as classy, consisting of affluent businessmen, upper crust locals, tourists and in-house guests.
Chipstead makes your forget the modernised versions of high-end bars with its polished elegant appearance. Interiors are distinctly plush with a contemporary influence that moves through the room. Décor is everything you expect it to be – stylish and upscale. Rich wine coloured sofa chairs stands at the centre of the spacious room while a row of cosy long sofas flanks the wall on both sides. Ambience is dark, exotic, mysterious and very high end. A sleek dress or a crisp business suit won’t feel out of place in such glamourous surroundings. The lounge like vibe of the bar relaxes the nerves and encourages the diners to unwind. Chipstead makes a great option to take along a business associate or a gang of friends’ intent on drinking hard.
As the cool lounge music flows through the room, feel free to glance through the menu which presents wide yet exciting possibilities in food and booze. Chipstead doesn’t come cheap which only adds to the thrill. They stock on a marvellous booze spread, it’s worth taking your time with. Let the bartender woo you with delicious cocktails inclusive of those with regional Madras flavour. The list is exhaustively long. Under the haze lent by the bartender sway to the groovy tunes belted out by the DJ. Throw back some shots and nibble on few choicest appetizers to give your palate a salty kick. Chipstead is intense and a party hopper’s paradise.
