With a splendid view, the 13th Floor is a blessing for all those tired and weary shoppers as well as for those looking to chill out after a hard day’s work . With lounge seating located half-inside and half-outside, this cocktail lounge attracts a lot of interest and it’s almost impossible to get a seat immediately if you haven’t booked in advance.
The location of the lounge cannot be emphasized enough as the view of the Bangalore skyline at night is something truly worth the five hundred Rupees cover charge alone. This coupled with the marvelous retro music played by the 13th Floor guarantees the ideal setting for an evening; be it with a date, your significant other, college mates or work colleagues.
Let’s get down to the nitty-gritty of what makes a lounge bar click and stay popular: food and alcohol. The former is well represented with a menu designed with the tantalization of your taste buds in mind. Manian’s Pepper Mutton, Slow Braised Pork Spare Ribs and Malay Fragrant Spicy Tiger Prawns are some of the must-haves for meat lovers.
Vegetarian Menu in The 13th Floor
On the vegetarian side of things, the Thai colored curry comes with Eggplant and other veggies. This is as wholesome as its non-vegetarian cousin. For light snacks, the Tandoori Sushni Kebab is ideal and so are the Stuffed Italian mushrooms.
Another item to try is the Cheese and Sun Dried Tomato Croquettes. The triple chocolate mousse is exquisite and you’ll be dancing to retro with a grin on your face by the time you’re done with it.
Alochol menu in The 13th Floor
Now, let’s move onto the alcohol The 13th Floor has on offer. All the usual suspects including Single Malt whisky, Bourbon, Irish whiskey, Scotch and Indian liquors are present. If you’re really in the mood to go all out, there’s Dalmore Gran Reserve, Talisker and Glenkinchie in the single malt category that might burn a hole in your pocket but certainly not in your belly.
Premium wines, sparkling wines and even imported wines can be downed either by glass or by bottle. Imported beers along with the usual Kingfisher fare (Premium, Blue, Draught, etc) can be relished.
Coladas, Bloody Marys, Napalms and other cocktails will be an often seen sight for lounge dwellers but items such as Arsenic and Old Lace and Texas Chainsaw help add innovation to the offerings.
