This stylish downtown lounge was created by the Chai Pani team and focuses on munchies-type fare and creative cocktails. Inside the Wall Street locale, a wide selection of Indian-style bar snacks blend in well with the vintage Bollywood posters on the walls. Menus and a hand-written chalkboard showcase atypical cocktails, including The Green Card, which is made with pineapple juice, lime juice, gin and green chutney. Like Chai Pani, bartenders craft their sumptuous spirits with the flair of chefs, using house-made bitters and syrups in their arsenal. The space is chic but cozy with lots of dark wood and chocolate leather to give it an air of sophistication. Expect also artful, small-plate desserts that make for an ideal accompaniment to the creative nightcaps.
- Best Nightlife: "On Monday and Tuesday nights, MG Road is taken over by PUNK WOK, pop-up culinary events featuring inexpensive fusion fare and an ever-changing menu. Be forewarned: lines can be long."
- Recommended as Best Nightlife Because: With lots of Asian and Indian flavors, this cozy lounge's internationally-inspired cocktails are a welcome departure from the city's southern nuances.
