Ek Bar – Ek bar has interesting elements w.r.t. interiors that remind us of our roots, culture, history as well as tradition too. The heavy red chairs take you to the era of 70-80’s. It reminds one of the fancy chairs on which villains of Bollywood would sit and drink black dog . It has intriguing and yet casual set up that makes you comfortable and feel of home. Ek bar has well designed bar stocked with spirits. Our recommendations – Murabba Mule, Mojito 6 and Royal Indian punch.
