Bangalore is one of those rare places where a casual vacationer ends up being a permanent resident. This is in no small part thanks to the weather, which barely lets you sweat while the rest of the country is burning. The lifting of the ban on pubbing post 11PM is added impetus for the millennial crowd. Besides, dotted with lakes and gardens and incorporating both historical architectures and high rises, Bangalore is easily one of the country’s most picturesque cities.
Now, what is a better way of getting a panoramic view of Bangalore than sitting at the High Ultra Lounge? Located on top of the 420 feet World Trade Centre at the Brigade Gateway Complex, High Ultra Lounge is at the highest point of Bangalore. The spectacular view, soft lighting, and quaint wooden decor indeed give you a high. Sip on a delicious Manhattan or Old Fashioned and enjoy the soothing background music.
The 100 sq. ft. area is divided into the ‘High Dine’, and the ‘High Mix’ zones to suit all manner of moods of the diverse group visitors. High Dine is slightly cozier, offering an open seating arrangement with a breathtaking view. It incorporates a space dedicated to private parties and events. The décor is easy on the eye with simple design elements. High Mix, on the other hand, is right at the entrance – an enclosed bar where you encounter the best mixologists in town. The dance floor is flooded with hues of purple and magenta lights – perfect contrast to those vertical slatted walls.
High Ultra Lounge’s impressive collection of single malts and blended whiskies is sourced from across the world. Macallan Malt 15 years fine oak, Macallan Malt 12 years fine oak, Dalmore 12 years, Glenlivet 12 years, Hakushu, Hibiki 15 years, Jim Beam Kentucky 8 years, Jameson, Canadian club are some of the best options, apart from common favourites like Teacher’s 25 years and Glenlivet 12 years. What’s more, you get a ‘Buy one Get one’ offer on signature cocktails on weekdays between 5:30 and 7:30 – a relief after a hectic day spent between meetings and presentations. It doesn’t end here, as Happy Hours also let you pair any five drinks from the menu with two appetizers at a special price. Weekends are no less, with Friday evenings starting with a performance by ‘Venus Soul’ – a girl powered band, followed by an upbeat DJ session.
