PROLIFIC restaurateur AD Singh has gentrified the central idea of Gurgaon’s AHATAs and Kerala’s Kallu Shappus and created an open-in-the-evenings-only “Indian cocktail bar” where a quirky décor dominated by a bespectacled elephant complements a deliciously experimental menu crafted by Sujan Sarkar, who returned from London last year after successful stints at Michelin-star restaurants, hangouts of high rollers and The Whistling Shop, rated by Zagat as one of London’s best cocktail bars. My favourites are the masala taftan served with a jar of chicken liver and bheja (brain) pate, the oddly named Punjabi Poboy Burger with batter-fried soft shell crabs (not quite a Punjabi speciality, but one you’d like to get your teeth into!), and the unputdownable jhaal moori granola bar with avocado, imli gel and micro greens served, like a marriage made in heaven, with a Vineet Bhatia-inspired dahi bhalla sorbet. The cocktails by fresh-from-Melbourne mixologist Nitin Tewari come with refreshing twists and no off-the-shelf syrups and canned juices. The must-have ‘Mojito 6’ is a cool combination of Bacardi, starfruit juice, honey water, Ayurvedic six-spice mix and mint leaves. It’s an “Indian cocktail” without being outlandishly so.
Visited this place two years ago but now they have changed the entire menu n staff. Food was spicy. No place to sit, seated us in a smoking area which was uncomfortable. Not recommended. Got an upset stomach in the morning as well. Have briefed the manager about the food, he tried to waive off but we insisted n paid the full bill.
This is one of our favourite hang outs. Its a nice little bar tucked away on the main road in Defence Colony. The cocktails are very interesting and one of our all time favourites is 'City of Nizams'. The bacon and sausage butty, the punjabi Bagh wala chicken is really really good - it has the cream dressing on it which is full of flavours. They had started khimiri pizzas as well which were really nice. Friendly staff as well.
This bar has a nice ambience. We met with our friends for a round of drinks and dinner. The service was good. snacks ordered were very well presented. the menu consists of simple indian dishes and presented with a modern twist.
This bar is a nice modern place, it has a wide range of drinks and some of the bar snacks we tried were very nice. Staff were very friendly.
We were excited to try this place out as it was a recommendation from a friend. He met us there! I love good vodka cocktails so I was excited to try something new. When we arrived, they put us in a side room (smoking) and said they were going to have a big party that booked so that was our only option. We drank three rounds and the party never showed and the place was empty. That was a bit annoying. The most annoying was that when we arrived the proceeded to tell us all of the liquor they were out of.... vodka, gin, whiskey. What?!?!? Kinda crazy. We were able to find some tequila based drinks that worked and were good. If they were fully stocked, it would have been a much better experience. Don’t bother with the food either.... service was not great.
Ek Bar is an all-new bar dedicated for drinking along with some munchies in Defence Colony, Delhi. Owned by AD Singh, also owner of the Olive group, replaced by Diva Kitsch, the bar aims at providing an experience that would leave you thinking about it for days post the visit as to what went into your dish. Ek Bar gives vibes of a fest or a carnival from the time you enter to the time you leave the place. Talking about fun, there is a giant merry-go-round right on top of the bar. The spiral staircase leads to the rooftop bar, with a funky chandelier and vibrant décor. It is basically a conglomerate of several things tucked into one which are the vintage pictures on the walls, the elephant mascot, and addictive music.
Chef Sujan Sarkar has brought together varied unusual recipes and preparations that fall under the category of modern Indian fusion. The food and drinks have an Indian touch to them. Some of the drinks include Sher Singh, murabba mule, platform @ CST and more with a blend of ingredients such as amrak, murabba, and other Indian spices. Some of the dishes that can be tried include khameeri pizza, veg and non veg thali, Ek Bar – granola bar, Andaman tuna papdi chaat, baked mushroom chilla and Hyderabadi keema fettuccini. For a sugar rush, you can try baked saffron yoghurt, Auroville chocolate brownie and kubhani cheese cake.
As you enter the bar, you can watch the bartenders performing a welcoming shaking jig for you. Upon that, as the place is new and the menu concept is new as well, the staff graciously attends to every guest and bids them happily with a smile.
