7 of the Newest Lounge-Bars in Pune

There is no shortage of hip hangouts in Pune. We have a decent number of established bars in our city. The bar scene in Pune is fluid and ever-growing. Listed below are the newest bars where the fashion-forward and hip have chosen to hang out.

Retox – The Social Fix


This place has a big sign outside. Interiors are fresh, crowd is young and the music is good. They have a huge screen inside playing various things. The drinks’ menu is huge, while the food menu is a little small. Their drinks offer a decent number of theatrics.

Location: Viman Nagar

Elephant & Co. Gastropub


Don’t let the name fool you. This place is quickly becoming a favourite amongst the locals. Cocktails here are famous and the outdoor seating is eye-catching. They have live music on some days but have a limited menu. But after you’re down a few, who eats a lot anyway. Hic!

Location: Kalyani Nagar

The Bar Stock Exchange


Hallelujah! We finally got our own Bar Stock Exchange! After a huge success in Mumbai, this place is here to serve cheap alcohol with its USP being its fluctuating prices. They can definitely work on their wait staff, but besides that, this place rocks.

Location: Koregaon Park

Playboy Beer Garden


First of its kind in India, this place opened with a lot of hype. They have a huge outdoor seating area with white curtains, the indoor area is pretty well done up too. The Buffalo Chicken Wings and the Peri Peri Chicken pizza are must-trys.

Location: Baner

The Bar and Eatery


A very casual place like your typical neighborhood bar. Light music, amazing food and drinks to match. This is a not a “dress to kill” kinda place. Enjoy chilled out vibes with your chilled Beer.

Location:  Koregaon Park

Farzi Café


No other place’s opening was SO eagerly awaited as this one. After making a name in the metros, this place finally came to Pune. The innovation of its food has to be applauded. The theatrics are top notch. Make sure you have prior reservations, even on week days, if you want to ensure yourself a table here.

Location: Kalyani Nagar

Mineority Café and Bar


Young, bright and vibrant, this rooftop bar boasts of (and rightly so) delectable finger-food, happy hours and a pretty, romantic setting. Just perfect for unwinding on a weekend! Read a full review right here. Image credits: Dumbbells and Drama.

These are the best and coolest of what’s new in Pune now. Things keep changing and we keep chugging. But isn’t that how we like it? Here’s to good times, Pune!
