If it’s a sport, they intend to promote it! This, we are assured, is the motto of US 101, the sports resto bar at GLM Meridian in T Nagar, that recent underwent a complete revamp after 10 years. Need proof? Step in and try deciding between seven LCDs each screening a different sport. Or head to the bar counter and find that the usual display of bottles has been replaced by pictures of legends like Schumacher and Jordan. “All important matches will be screened live with commentary. We are probably the only ones screening Formula 1,” assures Balaji Kathirvel, US 101’s brand ambassador, who comes with experience from Zara and Illusions.
Aside from a menu replete with pub grub like burgers, grilled chicken and steaks, the week-old watering hole is also working on special sports cocktails. For now, settle for shooters like the Free Hit or Warm Up. They have already charted out their themes for the week and we are glad to inform you that Thursdays are dedicated to stand-up comedy, with Sunday offering a brunch. And while there, throw a couple at their punching bag. If you make it touch the wall, you get a free drink of your choice.
From 12 pm to 3 pm and 6.30 pm to midnight. Details: 9787341541
