Which is the place that the likes of Akshay Kumar and Yuvraj Singh, in short all hot blooded men would swear by? Kamasutra on the walls, a bartender called Kama, a philosophy (I received a press note) saying Kitty Su was a discerning woman of taste, class and distinction with global sensibilities yet Indian roots. An effortless mix of Audrey Hepburn and Maharani Gayatri Devi!! Yikes. "She died in her luxurious toilet, with a piccolo in one hand and a cigarette holder in the other!!" double yikes. Kitty Su is a revelation.
Too many over-the-top histrionics with no thought or maybe too many strange thoughts would be more apt. Unnecessary shenanigans like the manager being so busy because the club opens at 10 pm, but his entourage is not completely briefed, because no one comes by 10!! They give a special electronic key card to the 'A' list I was told, to access the private room called 'The List'!! I'm sorry to be exclaiming so much, but as I'm writing I'm still very wondrous. By the way 'The list' has a separate entry and exit for the VIPs. it's a different matter though that all the while I was there, not one so called 'VIP' fluttered. There is also a champagne lounge called 'The Dressing Room', and another sound proof room.
I was told they do molecular mixology. Indeed they did, they served a Bellini with faux caviar. Only a slight aberration though, the faux caviar were lumps of gelatin!! Served with a soggy vanilla straw. Sorry I'm exclaiming again. Their drinks are called the seven deadly sins, and some I have to admit were sinfully nice. Like the poison thandai, a saffron-infused vodka thandai or the poison frappe — a whisky or dark rum-based drink blended with a shot of espresso.
Ever since discovering the joys and wonder of licorice tasting drinks, I've been looking for a place that served anise spirits. Here at Kitty Su, I did find that and how!! They serve the flaming Lamborghini and Sambuca made with xenta absenta, served over a castle made out of glasses, where people queue up and have how much they can!! I'm at a loss for words.
'The List' has a French Zoltar fortune teller type bust, with a cigarette in one hand. Interestingly the cigarette I was told is a gold filtered Sobranie cigarette from the United Kingdom. They have laser shows twice a week, the only days they are open, Fridays and Saturdays, at 1 am and 2 am. This show takes place while they play trance music. The DJ plays electro pop and party popper genres of music as they called it. The music is as confusing as the layout of this place.
I'm still exclaiming!!
Pros — The nachos
Chargrilled chicken wings with teriyaki sauce
The flaming spiced Toddy
Luxuria or lust, strawberries, cream and vodka
The Chef Suraj and Aully the servers."

Kitty Su is my preferred location for weekend fun because of its central location, good ambience, classy music and food that matters to me the most.
Nachos and Chargrilled chicken wings with teriyaki sauce
are on my good book and no matter what i eat i always end up ordering one of these. Kitty Su is best even for a mid week chilling session.
