Our pick of happening spaces that hit the roof (top)
High Ultra Lounge
Unsurprisingly popular, this swanky lounge atop the 30th floor of the World Trade Centre, offers classic cocktails to keep you mellow as you take in the glittering city skyline. We recommend their signature drinks like Amethyst Mist, High Tai and Constellation. And for bar nibbles, a combination of Thai, Korean and Japanese food. Be sure to carry a jacket (and skip the flouncy skirts!) as the winds can get rather wild up there. At Malleshwaram. Details: 45674567
The Humming Tree
Ideal for a more casual experience, The Humming Tree blends live music, great food and tipple in an atmosphere buzzing with music lovers. In tune with their casual vibe, you’ll get classics like mojitos and bloody Marys with comfort food like chicken wings, kebabs, sandwiches loaded with ham, eggs and cheese, and pasta. Plus divine desserts. At 12th Main, Indiranagar. Details: 9886618386
This Tintin-themed pub is jazzed up to look like the colourful comic book itself. Set amid the tree tops of Indiranagar, literally, the cocktails are inspired by Tintin characters while world food reigns supreme — from bacon-wrapped prawn and cheese croquettes to steaks and lamb chops. At 100 Feet Road.
The Fatty Bao
A lively bar area, al fresco terrace dining and interesting concoctions like Ho-Gin-Min, Mandalay Bay
and Bora Bora reflect the Oriental theme that runs through the gastropub, while the food exceeds expect-
ations, especially their baos and ramen.At Indiranagar.
