The trappings of the luxe lounge with its adjoining restaurant are all still in place, the wispy, light pristine white sheer curtains, the luminescent and soft lighting in a baby pink hue, white leather sofas (barring a dripping section of the air cooler in a corner of the ceiling, at least the last time one was there). Even its USP, the ice bar has its temperature maintained impeccably. But where are the people? Once a trendsetting lounge with some brand value, Touch is now open only thrice a week, over weekends and Wednesdays, when its ladies nights, although the restaurant is open all days. The cocktails to watch out for are fresh fruit martinis and mojitos. Popular mocktails include the Caribbean Sunset. Signature non veg starters include Threaded Chicken. Amritsari Fried Fish, Crispy Fried Calamari. Good vegetarian starters would be Paneer Shawarma, Touch tandoori vegetarian platter etc. Music played is lounge, house, hip-hop and Bollywood tracks. Service is just about competent, albeit a little cocky, and bordering on snooty.

This pub has potential to be one of the evergreen pubs of Hyderabad.
Cover charges are steep and it also includes entry charges which is not redeemable - this is one thing I dont like because I am not coming to museum where I have to pay entry charge.
Indifferent attitude of staff & management to normal customers - though they are the one who spend money and increase revenue for the pub. I mean this club has frequent visitor from Telugu film industry and they get preferential treatment.
Advantage: In good location, soothing ambience, some vip section to chillout, good music, few good continental snacks
Sucks: It get closed by 12.00
