If you have ever struggled to find a bar that allows you to savour perfectly mixed cocktails while catching up with friends, then Drinks on MG is for you. With Spanish bartender Alfonso del Portillo on hand to whip up signature drinks, the music set to just the right level to enjoy without having to shout, and an excellent view over MG Road, this bar is a sophisticated and welcome addition to the city’s nightlife.
Mixing it up
1Classics like margarita, cosmopolitan and mojito are all available, with plentiful options for customisation according to your taste. Our martini was mixed to perfection, combining dry gin, a dash of bitters and a twist of lemon to round it off. More exciting is the ‘Alfonso’s Alchemy’ list, featuring the head bartender’s own fusions. The ‘After Work’ (so called because it was the result of throwing together ingredients from his bare cupboards after returning home late one evening) should be top of your list to try. Pairing Chivas Regal 12 with chocolate bitters, lime and triple sec, this warm, rounded drink is a true comfort option. You also have the option of adding squares of chocolate and smoked cinnamon sticks to your glass, for an extra depth of flavour.
Bar snacks are no less decadent, and you can take your pick from a mouth-watering tapas menu. We opted for bacon-wrapped dates stuffed with almonds, and found the balance of sweet and salty flavours spot on. The garlic prawns were also a hit, served on a bed of lettuce with a hint of lemon. For a more substantial meal, we couldn’t recommend the tenderloin steak more highly – cooked to tender perfection, it was served with a rosemary-infused gravy, accompanied by mashed potatoes and winter vegetables.
Rs.2,500 approximately for two. At Sai Complex, MG Road. Details: 7022022573
