Phoenix Market City has been my preferred choice for shopping and on a bustling Saturday evening I walked into the courtyard for a breather in between my valentine shopping expedition to a beautiful sight. The courtyard was transformed into mini paradise of colour red and hearts. There were areas for that selfie or groupie pics along with an area to get a picture with Cupid too!
In the centre of the courtyard stood the stage where there was a karaoke session in progress with some very good singers from the crowd belting out foot tapping numbers. This was followed by a dance session by Ocean Kids, who are more popularly known for being one of the finalists on the show India’s Got Talent and that they did have in abundance. The night was still young when the stage was taken over by DJ Vipul Khurana, a Delhite who quite popular in the club scene.
There is no party without spirits and this was in abundance in the form of Beer by Kingfisher & Bira along with Rum, Whisky and Vodka which set the mood for an enjoyable evening with loved ones. The Line-up for 11th Feb was more impressive with Naik & Jois Project, Ocean Kids and Bangalore’s very own DJ Ivan ending the weekend on a rocking note. The music by Naik & Jois project had the crowd singing along and enjoying their Sunday.
The food scene was not far behind with some of the well known restaurants such as Bar Bar, Cafe Noir, Whitefield Social having stalls across the courtyard and some amazing food trucks such as The Rolling Chef, Smoke Signal BBQ and India’s first BBQ Bike delighting the taste buds of the festival goers. I love the food served by food trucks and the crowd milling outside The Rolling Chef is an indication of the popularity of their of food.
I love the desserts and pastries at Smoor and was delighted to see they were part of this weekend party. They did have some special offerings for Valentine’s Day to gift that special one. While the entertainment on the stage had the crowd on their feet and the courtyard was filled with shoppers and music lovers all through the fun filled evening.
My experience of the Hearty Party was an memorable one and from the pulse of the crowd it was enjoyed by all.
