Lively music, and a broad- based menu make Jive a cool neighborhood spot.
It’s nice to see unpretentious places like Jive popping up a bit off the F&B trail with moderate prices and an easy atmosphere.
Tucked away in Indiranagar, the entrance to the resto bar is somewhat hidden by the myriad store fronts that are typical of residential sidestreets, but once you step into the rather funky space decorated with chain mail screens and wall art, you can settle down in one of the semi-private booths and enjoy the music that the in-house DJ spins for you.
The menu is definitely eclectic and meant to satisfy your cravings for Indian flavours. So you can expect spices to pop up quite cheerfully in a sizzler, in a local Chinese format , in pan Asian dishes or the ubiquitous continental line-up. Portions are generous all around and even the cocktail bites that go with the drinks are quite robust and satisfying.
There are plenty of tandoori options that you can safely pick or go for the bold Andhra chilli heat that manifests itself in chicken nuggets, sizzlers and biriyani. A hefty dose of Indian Chinese that hits the spot nicely, especially paired with the beers that sell for around `100. The in-house DJ is quite happy to oblige with your playlist so once you get in the mood, hit the dance floor and get the party really started.
Average meal for two Rs800.
