Barebones – The balcony bar with a view

Before starting this article – I want to start by saying , if you are used to a certain eatery and then another new place comes up beside it , it’s our natural tendency to go for the “tried & tasted” but once break the rule & do try the new one. You never know, may be this can be your next favourite hangout place. I realized this, the afternoon I visited Barebones.

This was part of a tasting event, I had not been able to make it for sometimes. I have seen this place so many times, but as it right beside one of my favourites – automatically my happy feet traces me back to the known place. As I said, will break the rule henceforth.

This is an amazing place, to spend time with friends, family or partner – over drinks and food for a long time. They have indoor and outdoor sitting, but I preferred sitting outdoor, where you can see the medley of people and cars passing through Indiranagar 100 ft. While you can see them clearly – they might or not be able to see you. They also have a sitting arrangement upstairs, which is open from 6 p.m. onwards (it’s in my list of multiple visits). The spiral flight of stairs brings you to a sitting place which is absolutely shaded by trees from outside, but you can sit on the high stools, sip your drink & watch the road.


The owner (Sajan) hails from Coorg and is very nice to talk to. His hospitality and humble attitude will charm you. The place offers free Wi-Fi. The crew is also very friendly and art conscious. They take care of the plating to such details, I was awestruck.




We tried a number of mocktails & cocktails – which were served with perfection. The simple shots were also embellished for greater appeal. I loved my “Twisted Bloody Mary”. It was perfect! I also loved a mocktail taken by a friend – “apple rosemary tea”. The other beverages we tasted were martini base, cosmopolitan, tequila sunrise & some shooters. Each drink was served with perfection & they are quite potent too.


In food – we tried Keema pao, Prawn Omlette (which finished in minutes), chicken nachos, chili garlic butter prawn. I ordered for a Peri Peri Basa, and thoroughly enjoyed it till the last morsel.


I saw the mango cheese cake in the display and reserved it at the very first sight. When it actually came to me, the plating was awesome and we all kept drooling over it for quite some time – before our spoons dug into it.

On the whole, this is a restaurant – where I would like to go back, again and again!
