Opened in place of the erstwhile Jewel of India, this casual dining hot spot bears no resemblance to its predecessor in décor or food offerings. Dimly lit, with ample space and an island bar, it exudes a cool and relaxed vibe. The music adds to the lively ambience. The new food menu is fairly limited, albeit with vegetarian and non-vegetarian options in the salads, small plates, grills, street food sections. The bar menu is fairly exhaustive and it is fun to watch the bartenders at work. The 'Coorg style Chicken Dry Fry' is spicy enough to perk up your taste buds. 'Baked Chicken with Soya Mirin' is an even better bet. Most of the dishes look better than they taste as the flavours are strictly ordinary. The 'Chicken Pot Pie' disappoints as it is nowhere close to a pie but of a runny stew consistency instead. The staff although warm needs to be better trained as they are clueless about the menu offerings. The 'Kalkatta Paan Cheesecake' sounds interesting, but sadly most of the desserts listed on the menu are unavailable. Ask the bartender to fix you a drink as per your preference.
Have you fixed your next Saturday night haunt yet? If not then hold on! We have unearthed a trendy happening spot for you where you can bid the week goodbye with a round of drinks and music. Popularly known as ‘Glocal Junction’ to the Mumbaikars, this laid-back bar is just perfect for a casual fun evening. Be it to wash off the grueling stress of work or to simply get together with friends, whatever the reason may be Glocal Junction will be ideal. The bar is located on the ground floor of Nehru Centre just opposite Nehru Planitorium in Worli. The vibe is cool here and is one of the lures for the bar’s popularity. With perky live music and lively ambience, Glocal Junction has become a busy hangout for the youths.
The idea of Glocal Junction is entirely different from its predecessor Jewel of India. Here the ambience is very upbeat and playful. With a lavish multi-cuisine menu they have paired a fantastic booze selection which entails labels from all over the globe. Glocal Junction organizes fun karaoke nights and live sports screening to keep their punters happy. Tap into their wi-fi if you have some emails to send. One can give scotches and beers and wine a skip and go for their signature cocktails. Chilly passion fruit, evening in Tokyo and Caribbean fire & ice ball is especially delicious. Throw in few nibbles to go with it. For a more substantial fare you can dig into, chicken chili pizza, grilled tofu glazed with sriracha sauce, nasi goreng, grilled Indian salmon with wasabi cream sauce, dosa waffle with chicken sukka, penne rigate jardinara, farmer’s delight pizza and chicken pot pie.
For your share of sugar rush get some of Glocal Junction’s delectable desserts. There are few innovative takes on classic desserts too on the menu, something worth looking into. Try, kalkatta paan cheese cake, waffle brownie with ice cream, baked citrus rabdi with saffron pearls, banoffee pie and caramel mousse with edible soil. They even do a Jain version of the menu, to keep the vegetarians happy. Interiors of Glocal Junction has an industrial look to it with exposed wooden rafters, edgy ironwork, dim yellow lighting and wooden finishes. Use of iron grill work in bar and staircase, that leads you to the upper floor, gives a masculine appeal to it. For a medium-priced bar, Glocal Junction is not a bad deal.
