Good news for the residents of Gurugram as another exciting outlet with energetic vibe, appetizing food and an amazing ambience is here to satisfy your cravings!
Lord of the Drinks Barrel House, a brain child of Priyank Sukhija, is located in the heart of Gurugram, Sector 29. With its pleasant interiors, the resto-bar is spread across two levels, each with a unique bar setup giving the place a perfect ambience for a stunning evening with your loved ones. The sixth in series of the Lord of the Drinks brand, the restaurant makes for a perfect dine and party space in the corporate hub.
The entire wall on the left decorated with mirrors of abstract shapes gives the bar a high end vibe. The skull plates on the right side of the wall opposite the stairway add vibrance to the interiors. The ceiling also decorated with vintage chandeliers giving ambience the required exuberant feel. The décor also has a “tribal” element to the interiors with the Aztec prints that fit perfectly with the wooden flooring and bar design.
I started my night with cocktails including Smoked Sangria, Butter Beer that was a mix of vanilla vodka, beer, honey, caramel syrup, egg white, apple juice and whiskey.
Another drink that came my way was Apple Foamintini, which tasted of vodka, green apple liquor, lime juice, elder flower syrup, topped with mint foam.
Next interesting drink was Vodka Curry Aampanna—vodka infused with curry leaves, homemade bitters, sweet and sour mixed topped with mango foam.
The micro-brewery there serves the most amazing brews including the likes of Belgium Witbier that is a pale refreshing wheat beer brewed in Belgium Style. It’s pale straw in colour with cloudy appearance due to presence of starch hoze and yeast. Citrus Orange flavour is the speciality of this beer.
One can also try Indian Paleale- a happy, moderately strong and very well attenuated pale British ale with a dry finish and a happy aroma with flavour. The classic British ingredients provide the best flavour profiles. So beer lovers, you have another destination to chill.
The next thing on my plate was the best creations of chef that looked mouth-watering with a flawless presentation. Priyank Sukhija says,“Food is main motive to dine out. We at Lord of the Drinks have created a menu that has offering for all age groups and palate preferences”. It is culinary atlas of World Cuisine. From the signatures, one can choose from dishes like Nitrogen Deconstructed Papadichaat, which has delectable khataa-meetha taste. They have fancy names and amazing taste for the dishes. Boozy Dal Makhani was is a halt for vegetarians.
Another dish that I tried was Lord’s smoked stuffed chicken kebab, which took me to another level. The dishes like Chilli and Vodka Spiked prawn, Chilli Paneer Cups, Tandoori Broccoli, can also be tried at the venue. There is segment called Lord of fries, and signatures like Lord of Nachos, Lord of chaaps, Rosemanry crusted aloochaat and much more in small plates. Pizzas, Pasta’s and Risottos are a must try!!!
I ended the foodie night on a sweet note with Lord Dessert, Chocolate Terrine which melted in my mouth as I went on devouring it.
