Cocktails and Lunch at The Studio bar

Orion Mall in Bangalore is a beautiful and convenient place to shop and dine. It has many fine dining places and the other day I was in one of them. Here's a picture tour from my visit to the Studio Bar, featuring their signature cocktails and food...

 Ambiance is of a typical lounge bar with very comfortable seating...

Cinema inspired theme...

Some tables have beautiful cover photos of CineBlitz magazine...

The bartender at work...

First cocktail of the day is All About Eva. A beautiful concoction of Tequila, Vermouth, Triple Sec, Lemon Juice and Cranberry juice...

Next is Sotally Tober made from gin, fresh apple chunks, cilantro, sugar syrup and peri peri salt all blended in a blender. After drinking I was sotally tober...


Bahama Mama - a delicious cocktail of coffee liqueur Kahlua, white rum, dark rum, Ouzo, apple juice and lemon juice...

Electric ice tea - Combination of Vodka, Tequila, white rum, gin, blue curacao, lime juice and sprite...

Some flaming shots with brandy, Baileys, Kahlua, Blue Curacao, Tequila, gin, white rum and Grenadina...

Appetizers included Peshawari Murgh Tikka - morsels of chicken with aromatic spices and garlic, cooked in a tandoor. It was tangy and nice. The chunks were little bigger for a bite than I would have liked it...

My favorite of the day was Barbecued Pork Spare ribs...

Melt in the mouth pot roasted pork spare ribs were so tasty...

Jog's Chicken Wings - spicy chicken wings  with hot and sweet sauce...

Beef Steak -  Mustard and rosemary marinated tender beef fillet served with melange salad. The beef was slightly more well done than my liking but the flavors were delightful...

Creamy Pesto was amazing with the basil flavors...

 Napolean Chocolate bomb - an imploding chocolate filled dessert...

Aftermath of the implosion.... 

The Studio Bar experience left me very satisfied. Leaving you with the lovely smile of one of my co-diners...

  19. I just did a post on Pinterest of the top 10 "secret" bars in San Francisco and how to get in those places. This looks like a great one and it's bright and open and the food and drinks look absolutely great. I'm hoping to come to Bangalore, with my nurse friend, Kris - was just planning on a couple of days - but, if we're going to eat at some of the fabulous places you've shown in your blogs, I think you'll have to find us a wonderful, inexpensive hotel for a longer stay!! Thank heavens, I have two new shoulders now and can lift all those drinks and cut my food with no help.


Thank you for visiting. I genuinely value the feedback I receive. If you can spare some time, let me know what you think.
