As we were beginning to think that Malad was getting super crowded and Jughead’s got jam packed on weekends, the suburb got a breather. After successfully operating in Lower Parel and Mulund the Manchester United Café Bar opened its gates for the suburbanites a couple of months ago. We hopped in the new drinking destination and came out buzzy…err…happy.
After struggling to find the elevator in Infinity Mall we finally reached the food court and headed towards the mezzanine floor where the Manchester United Café Bar is located. A glass window separates the Bar from the chaos on the lower level.
If you are a true Soccer fan (read Manchester United fan), you will definitely love the interiors with all the members of Old Trafford smiling at you from the walls and Manchester United merchandise on display. If not, don’t be disheartened because the bar doesn’t miss on playing any big cricket match on its numerous large screens.
The décor is dominated by red and black and the lights are just good enough to help you read through the menu. Music adds to the ambiance and the DJ knows what people want once they are couple of drinks down. The evening started with commercial numbers and slowly graduated to Bob Marley, Eric Clapton and Pink Floyd.
The bar menu is extensive and offers a great mix of Indian and international beers. We however, gave the beer a miss and ordered a long island iced tea and a mojito. If you are in the mood to experiment try the Jager bomb (Jagermeister infused in a glass of red bull) or whiskey with beer, if you are brave enough. Sit at the bar and the friendly bartenders will make sure you have a great time while they mix your drinks.
Since it’s a bar we didn’t expect the food to be great but to our surprise it didn’t disappoint us. For starters we ordered spicy pepper wings, Mangolian satay chicken and Greek salad. Being in the true sports’ spirit we ordered a BBQ chicken pizza with broccoli and crunchy apple. The thin crust freshly baked pizza made us want to order some beer but we resisted.
With beer, chicken, great music and sports at one place this Café Bar, as they like to call themselves, is on its way to give a lot of drinking joints a run for their money.
