Bar Baar is a famous Gastro Pub in the Majestic Retreat Hotels in Mankhool. The entire place is Bollywood themed with some really quirky wall arts. I loved the theme of the interiors. The place is lit with hundreds of Edison light bulbs. There are high chairs and couches as well. They have an elevated area which gives you a glimpse of their open kitchen. The elevated area is beautifully decorated with antique items like mirror, transistors, and artifacts.
Bar Baar recently launched their Gully Boy Menu. The name is derived from the recent movie “Gully Boy”, which took the Bollywood by storm with its storyline and rap songs. “The Apna Time Ayega “Rap number was sung by actor Ranveer Singh himself. True to the name, this new Gully Boy Menu focuses on the food from the Gullies (streets) of India.
Since we had gone to the event in the afternoon, the place wasn’t very crowded. Initially, the DJ was playing all the hit numbers of the Boy. Later, the live band got us grooving to some of the famous
My friend and I tried only the vegetarian dishes and were delighted by the authentic taste of the street food.
Rastavala Kandha Bajiya
Ek Dum mast momos
Bantai Tawa Pulao
Mere Paneer mein Chilli hein
Chapri Style Misal Pav.
My favorites among them were the Kandha Bhajiya (Onion Fritters) served with Green Chutney, Vegetable Stuffed Momos which were served with spiciest Momo chutney and the green Chutney. The Tawa Pulav and the Paneer Chilli also tasted great. I was a little disappointed by the Misal Pav.
Coming to the drinks, I tried some of their India-inspired cocktails
I loved the Cutting Chai, which was a whiskey-based cocktail and then got myself Ek Number chuski. It was a Gola with vodka+kala Katta! Really innovative I must say.
My friend tried the mock tails Emami Sherbet and the Raspberry Soda. Surprisingly there were no desserts on the menu.
If you are craving for some spicy Indian Street food and some unique cocktail mixes, this place is a must visit. Overall we had a great time at the menu launch event. The event was very well organized and loved taking all the crazy pictures with Gully Boy cutouts. I am surely coming back with my hubby to try out their non-veg dishes and their Thela Baar Brunch.
