International brand Harry’s Bar is a welcome addition to Indiranagar’s night life
Those who like a spot of night life with a cool international vibe and a well priced menu, must check out Harry’s Bar, now open in Indiranagar. If you are familiar with the Venetian, Singaporean or Parisian versions which once catered to the rich and famous (Hemmingway, Orson Welles) and now seem more like overpriced tourist traps, this cosy 60-70 seat restaurant, comes as a very pleasant surprise.
The décor is classic American, the music not too loud, and the drinks menu longer than the one for food. Naturally, we started with the iconic Singapore Sling — a gin and cherry-based cocktail, not too sweet and very refreshing. Then, the Harrys Old Fashioned, which came highly recommended by the bartender, and turned out to be a delicious caramel, cinnamon and citrus flavoured whiskey cocktail. A bowl of fresh peanuts in their shells comes gratis to all the tables with the drinks. We nibbled on a platter of nachos topped with beans, salsa, guacamole and sour cream that was big enough to share. And salt and pepper prawns lightly sauteed and then dusted with freshly crushed pepper corns.
The cocktails here are excellent — from the creative Caramel Popcorn Martini (garnished with vodka infused popcorn kernels) to the Green Lantern (a light mix of Midori, pineapple and white rum). They also serve wholesome American comfort food such as the Jazz Burger, Fish n Chips and meltingly good, barbecued ribs.
Rs. 1,500 for two with alcohol. Details: 66494904
