This one is a veteran in Pune’s pub scene – the big daddy of party haunts. Wooden flooring is juxtaposed with charming red walls and psychedelic paintings, and the contemporary pop music blasting out of the speakers makes party animals feel right at home. Once you are done mingling with the friendly crowd around and gushing over the wacky Bollywood coasters, order one of their legendary beer pitchers or a mud slide if you prefer something mellow and cream-based. At some tipsy point in the evening, a round of blackcurrant-flavoured kamikaze shots is a must, accompanied by a plate of buffalo wings (which, as they are considerate enough to point out, are made from chicken and not buffalo meat!) that come drenched in a tangy-spicy sauce, or some beer-battered prawns fried to a crisp golden brown.
Pune party scene is really hopping up since the city came into a bunch of really cool hangouts many tipplers call their home away from home. Throbbing exhilarating music, a lively upbeat ambience and a pair of menus designed to make your mouth water in anticipation, sums up an ideal party place in Pune city. For us that place would be `Hidden Place – The Hangout', a legendary watering hole on the city’s bar scene. This bar is the perfect spot to take your friends to for a fantastic time over drinks and music, without having to spend too much. Hidden Place is fixed firmly at Gera Legend, North Main Road, Koregaon Park, Pune, a trendy locality for fashionable party joints. Keep an eye out for their happy hours so you can take advantage of the bar’s wonderful offers.
Usually a pub is not known for great food but Hidden Place – The Hangout is an exception. The bar serves a mean menu curated cleverly by the chef to compliment the drinks beautifully. A delightful mix of Continental, Fast Food and North Indian cuisines can be enjoyed at the bar. Drinks are quite pocket-friendly, go for the refill. Knock back a round of Kamikaze shots to get the ball rolling before ordering your second drinks. With it munch on a yummy set of appetizers such as, gosht nizami seekh kebab, jalapeno cheese poppers, spicy three pepper chicken salad, dunkin beer crispy prawns, laal mirch ka paneer tikka and mutton shammi kebab. Follow it up with, crunchy fried chicken naanizza, grilled chicken in bourbon mustard sauce, paneer gulzar masala, prawn curry with rice, penne arrabiatta and mutton kheema with pav.
The delicious spicy food served at Hidden Place compliments the drinks perfectly. The loud music playing here draws a lot of young tipplers. If you are not much into high volume, try some place else. The good-looking interiors goes a long way into popularizing the bar. Warm walnut-toned floors gleams under the ambient lighting, setting off beautifully against the deep red walls. Funky wall art adds a sense of creativity to the scene, presenting a charming welcoming picture. Snag one of the table next to the wall so you have some privacy while you drink. The cozy trendy feel given to the bar works best for couples on a fun date.
