As far as sassy Chinese restaurants go, Wicked China is pretty much out there. Located smack dab at the centre of the recently rebranded Creaticity Mall (formerly Ishanya), Wicked China is hardly hard to reach, and given that it's Yerawada we're talking about, there's no dearth of options to generally fun around...you know...before or after… Continue reading Cheeky Chinese at Wicked China, Pune
The office scene may mellow down here but Hinewadi really comes alive at night. Sure, we don't have as MANY loungeworthy joints as KP but we've still got a pretty neat little lineup of our own and we love it! New ones, old ones, those on the street and those on the eighth floor, we… Continue reading The Chronicles of Gastronomia @Tarsh, Hinjewadi
The likes of Sony and Google had humble beginnings and were started by all of two highly motivated, brilliant people. Make that three in the case of Apple and Mattel. In less than five years from now (give or take), you're going to be able to say that about Great State Aleworks, too! This Pune-based… Continue reading Great Brews and Great Tours @Great State Aleworks
Here's a story - my Valentine's day celebrations were trashed first by Uber and then by Domino's Pizza (my desperate Plan B), so I decided to have a candlelight dinner indoors for what it was worth. What it was actually worth, was a Valentine's day do-over entirely sponsored by Effingut! (My #VDayFail story won a… Continue reading Effin good times at Effingut
The Greek flag sports just two colours - white and blue. That should explain why so much white and blue welcomes you once you step into the quaint and cavernous space that is EURISKA; the blue becoming significantly evident at night. Despite sitting smack dab on the main Koregaon Park main road leading towards Mundhwa,… Continue reading Euriska! Rediscovering French Beer in a Greek setting!
Borrowing inspiration from the Central-Asian City of Khiva that's at the epicentre of what used to be called the Silk Route during the Persian ages, Khiva - the Fine Dine resto at Phoenix MarketCity, Viman Nagar, is a bold attempt at trying to recreate that very spirit. Persian/Mughlai themed preparations dominate both, the menu and the… Continue reading Viva Khiva!
This festive season is all about chilly winter mornings spent beside the fire, feet up, hot cocoa in one hand and comic book in another, as the cat quietly contemplates destroying the Christmas tree in the most brutal manner possible. If that's not your version of Christmas, the next best thing that comes pretty darn… Continue reading Snug down at IGNITE, Courtyard by Marriott’s Winter Brunch

Or if you're a greedy little shit like me and are simply looking for some serious gourmet debauchery. If you're about Baner road (or… Continue reading Not so secret, this SuperStar – Orion Molecular Kitchen and Bar
Miss getting Sunburn’ed right now !
In the recently concluded Sunburn 2016, that also happened to be the 10th edition of sunburn, it was a great experience not only because of it is one of the best music festivals in the country but also because Pune was the chosen destination. This definitely gave a reason for Punekars like me to revel in this 4 day musical extravaganza.
We tumbled into the back of the car and made our way up, through the knotted hill, turn after turn, trepidation in our hearts, waiting to witness the grandiose.
It was my favourite DJ Axwell’s performance that day and I couldnt wait to see him perform. The bands were to be collected from the box office that was stationed downhill. But thanks to Smirnoff, they ensured we got the bands which saved us a good 1 hour of sweating it out in the queue. A big thank…

What do you get when you put rock music, retro themed décor and a Pune-inspired North-Indian/Oriental menu in a mixing bowl and dress it with a good helping of Bira and other great beverages? You get a classic afterhours haunt is what. Two carefully curated storeys worth of Vinyls, wooden furniture and cushions are what… Continue reading Eats & drinks at Wynkk Inc.
