B & G is the latest addition to the pub scene of Indira Nagar and I must say they have got themselves an awesome location in the middle of 100 Feet Road!
B & G alias Bottle & Glass is a catchy name and to think about it a very apt name for a pub which intends to join the ranks of the top pubs in Indira Nagar.
The resto bar is located on the 3rd Floor of a building already bursting at it seams with other restaurants and pubs but manages to catch one’s attention due to their simplistic glass decor and catchy name on the outside.
Since it is almost impossible to find any lounge or restaurant in this area which has their own parking, B & G provides valet parking.
The entrance to this pub (stairs) gives you an indication of what to expect and the word rustic comes to mind when you reach their entrance.
The decor mainly is a mix of wood, scrap metal, iron and steel which gives one a wear and tear yet classic finish.
From steel to rusty furniture to a roof filled with wooden sticks this place would surprise you in every corner.
I specially liked the set up for the DJ which seems to hang in mid air when seen from a distance.
Beside the DJ area, is their bar counter which is well stocked and having the usual One liner Bar rules as their main backdrop.
There is an open area in front of the Bar and the DJ console which is meant to be a make shift dance floor for those fun nights out.
The area I liked most was their semi open area with bar stools overlooking the road which is airy and perfect to enjoy Bangalore’s current weather.
I was here as part of the FBAB gang meet up and also landed up being the birthday of one of the members.
Here’s a snapshot of the Cocktails we tried – some we liked and some were different from the usual!
The veg appetizers were the first to arrive and went very well with the cocktails. The nachos especially was nice and crispy and with sour cream dip was a nice way to move onto the next course.
NON VEG APPETIZERS
All the non veg appetizers were pretty good but I personally liked the Tempura Prawns.
All the pizzas were thin crust just the way I like it.
Among the veg pizzas the mushroom, peppers and olives pizza was very good.
The non veg pizzas stole the show and being a pepperoni lover needless to say I gorged on their Pepperoni pizza. I do not like overloading of cheese in a pizza and I am glad to say the cheese was just the right amount.
MAIN COURSE :
We were given a taste of their 3 biriyani’s served in a small sized palm leaf plates. It felt more like we were getting shots of biriyani rather than a main course.
The veg biriyani was passable but the chicken tikka biriyani was well prepared and that ended up being my best main course.
The Cambodian Style curry was quite different from the usual asian curries I have tasted. Between the veg and non veg, I definitely prefered the chicken curry.
Due to the number of appetizers and main course that we were served, we tried only one dessert, Bread Pudding which was quite warm and soft but a little on the sweeter side for me.
Their options are limited for desserts and I see room for improvement here.
The service was good and they were very accommodating as we had a birthday to be celebrated hence we delayed the main course a bit.
Overall, a nice place to catch up with friends over a beer or some interesting cocktails and finger food.
