It’s no secret that Bangalore loves its tipple, which is exactly why we could not keep the successful Kentucky Chew series away from the Silicon City for long. Jim Beam in collaboration with TimesCity presents a unique experience that brings great food, mixology experiments and unbeatable deals to the pub capital of India. With 55 restaurants, cafés and lounges onboard, we are sure this will please every kind of mood and palate. So if you can eat like a pig and drink like a fish, this is your golden chance.
Since we talking about food that pairs well with drinks, we have to suggest you start with one of the most popular gastropubs in Bangalore, Monkey Bar. This quirky pub at Wood Street was one of the first to introduce the concept of small plates (filling appetisers to go with drinks) and they are now offering them at amazing offers. A whopping 60ml of Jim Beam whiskey can be paired with a vegetarian small plates for just Rs 525. You can choose from Dabeli, Paneer Bao and Kung Fu Rolls. The same quantity of whiskey paired with non-vegetarian small plates (choice of Tiger Beef, Hot Wings, Tempura Calamari and Chicken, Celery & Jalapeno Pirogies) costs you Rs 540 only. For mains, you can choose to pair 60ml serves with large plates like Mee Goreng, Gastro Burger and Jerk Inspired Chicken at steal deals.
