Chicane is a good hangout for F1 enthusiasts and those who love good food and drinks. The resto-bar has quite a few surprises: plasma screens which zoom racing cars, a music system belting out rock music, and a young adrenalin-driven crowd. Don’t race your way through the food for the fare is good. Enjoy dishes like Mutton Burrah, Chicken Tikka with BBQ sauce, A Turkish Delight, Chicken Amritsari, Fish ‘n’ Chips, Zhuha Magic and Bahrain Afternoon. The dance floor and a live DJ enhances your experience. The Sunday mornings are specially good and the place comes alive whenever there is a F1 race.

Chicane is a spacious sports bar full of energy. Plaques and Formula One circuit maps on the walls, low seating, movable comfy sofas like sports car seats, and the floor appears reminiscent of the racing track! All this ignites the passion for speed. Three television screens make it a good place for watching a game while enjoying a drink. DJ Ankush plays all kinds of music to keep the guests grooving on the dance floor. However, the food is a disappointment though. However, there are takers for Golden-fried Baby Corn, Chilli Paneer, Tangdi Kebab and Chilli Fish. Hi-Octane (Tequila), Screwdriver, Jack in the Box and Bulldog Cooler are popular cocktails. Go for Chicane Basket, Fish n Chips, Shimla Kebab, Kashmiri Aloo or an assorted Kebab Platter. In mocktails, you could try Chicane Special, Lovely Lips and Sexy Cinderella. Chicane fails to live up to its potential. rnHAPPY HOURS: Noon to 7pm

Run by first generation young restaurateurs, this quirkily named two floor bar is located up a flight of stairs from CCD, but don’t hold that against them. With eclectic framed quotes splashed across walls here and there and music that seems to seep through the furniture, the vibe of the place is as relaxed as your average neighborhood bar. The lower floor is more for dining, while the upper floor has a DJ deck and a lounge feel. The food menu is well curated with tons of options in global finger food. As expected, the bar is well stocked and carries all the classics, but most of the place is reserved up by private parties and dinners through the week. Service is courteous but cocktails need a little work.
