Aaj ka kya scene hai?… is the anthem of every party goer in the city. But of course, there is always something new to pick from the interesting line up of places to experience in Gurgaon. Cashing in on the emotion, comes to town, a place that knows exactly how to delve into the perfect ‘scene’! This new kid on the block is Scene High Bar, located on the 3rd floor of the popular Ninex Mall on Sohna Road.
Now, what do you expect of any new place that opens it’s doors in the city? Being offbeat, right? We are always asking for more…. and till now, the city hasn’t disappointed. My rendezvous with Scene High bar began with ‘oh! another place in the city’. Being ushered in with utmost hospitality by the staff did bring the fence down a bit….
What began in 2008 serving successfully for 10 years and counting in Delhi NCR, Scene – High Bar was brought in in June 2018 to give Gurgaon a Rooftop bar experience as never seen earlier.
The ‘Scene’ Gets Better!
As I settled to sweep the place with my eyes, what caught them were the diversely done interiors, every corner depicting a different vibe, a different theme, a different decor! ‘Interesting’ was just about to get better… And it did! With the quirky eye catching ‘Good Scenes’ mural welcoming me at the entrance, it kind of set the tone of what held inside!
The opulent bar spoke for what to look forward to in the menu! The Machaan on Scene Terrace, (that is what the terrace area is called!) provides for an enthralling view of the Sohna Road skyline while enjoying the breeze. Office ‘scenes’, Family ‘scene’, a Night ‘scene’ with friends Or all of them at once, can be accommodated with a seating capacity of more than 300!
But the menu is just as quirky! You can choose from there ‘Halka Scene’ menu, ‘Madamji ke desh se’ or ‘China ka desi maal’
! If you didn’t get that….. it translates to Beer, Italian and Chinese menu respectively.
Drinking Scene, Anyone? … Or The Food Scene? Sab Hai Yahaan!
My ‘scene’ began with Ginger Gala,
a vodka based cocktail with delicious ginger flavour blended with Blue Curacao, that I picked from their Baby Cocktails menu- this one is like the baby step towards ‘happy’, light yet there! This menu entails the lighter side of Alcohol.
But what really got my taste buds rolling was the hand pulled noodle soup of the Tibetan nomads, Thentuk Soup
, which was the perfect fuel to my appetite.The menu itself is as offbeat…. If you don’t believe me… try their Butter Chicken Momos and Paneer Lollipops
! They are anything…. but ordinary! Brownie points for the innovation!
Next came the Dahi Kababs
, presented impeccably with Mint chutney, crunchy as the sound on the outside and literally creating a meltdown in the inside. No points for guessing that I dabbled in those… a tad bit more than I should!Haryali Tikka
is another one of the hits from their menu. Marinated to perfection, the flavours of the spices induced into the Chicken so well, that a little bit more indulging….. was but obvious! And without any guilt too!
Now, to wash that array down I needed something to cool off with…. and their virgin Sangria
fitted aptly to do the job! With the Summer hitting on us, this Peach, Limca and Cranberry juice concoction is sure to be a hit too!
But the main course is yet to come….. The glorious and world famous Chicken Tikka Masala,
of course! When it’s CTM, it’s the job done right! Need I say more?Well, maybe a little bit more…. because where else would you get IMFL at INR 49? This bar creates the best high scenes!
And if that’s not enough to get you here….. avail of their 1+1 on drinks all day- ‘Extended Happy Hours’
, alongside some super Belly dance performances!Let the Good Scenes begin!Where: Shop Number – 1, Third Floor, Ninex City Mart, Sector-49, Sohna Road, GurgaonCall: 9354422610
