Old wine in a new bottle: Celebrating 10 years of 1 Lounge

It was a few years ago, back in 2008, when Pune opened its doors to one of the swankiest places to party in Pune! 10 years down the line, the place still manages to hold its position; just like old wine that only gets better with age!

Recently, the place underwent a complete revamp, including the style, vibe, and even the menu! They have added a few new dishes and retained the best-sellers from their previous. These are mostly dishes from the Indian and European platter.

The new menu is short, easy to read through and has plenty of unique options to choose from. To start with, we chose the Butter Chicken Tacos, a set of 3 soft-shelled tacos, generously stuffed with butter chicken and sour cream and paired it with a delicious citrusy Orange & Walnut Salad, high on freshness. The food menu is extensive with a special thought on appetizers that pair well with their amazing range of drinks.

Talking about drinks, we opted for the Twin Happiness Slushy a stunning daiquiri with pineapple and strawberry, which proved to be a fabulous take on the regular Pina Colada! The Blue Galaxy with blue curacao, gin, and vodka is a treat for those who’d love a good punch of alcohol!

1 Lounge has a massive space – something that can make for any creative setup, for late evenings or private parties with a close bunch; space inside is mostly reserved for private parties. The lawn areas are great for hitting up with your gang! You can also choose a more secluded corner for a romantic date.

Either way, we just cannot get over how well 1 Lounge has retained its charm! On this special first decade anniversary, we congratulate team 1 Lounge and hope that they will continue to charm and surprise us the way they have!

A Sneak Peek Into The Life Of The Head Chef At Elephant and Co – Say Hello to Sohini Bhattacharyya! – #Forkers

Have you ever experienced that feeling where you go to a restaurant and eat its food and the first thing you want to do is to go and give the chef a tight kiss? At the expense of sounding creepy, I have! Multiple times. And a lot of those times were at Elephant and Co gastropub. Known for its delicious and experimental cocktails, this bar has been one of my favourites since the time it opened its gates last year in May. From then till now, they have tried to experiment with a lot of dishes, bringing in fun elements such as serving teriyaki chicken in a bowl made out of a real pineapple. However, not all of them received the response they expected.
