SOMEPLACE ELSE! Well if one considers the genre of the music being played by the live bands (especially The Saturday Night Blues Band, Skinny Alley et al.), it is really a place where there IS something different and hence is welcome; but then the pub in its present incarnation will qualify only as THE LAST PLACE to hang out when the controversial discotheque TANTRA (in the same hotel) is overcrowded. I wish I could shower plaudits on this place. I want to. I just love their music. The lighting is okay in tune with the different genre of music being belted out by the live bands; but then try and sit in the few seats near the stage. The speakers almost bark at your legs, being horribly close. The sound from such high decibel electrifying floor mounted JBL speakers so close makes you wanna say: STOP IT DEAR(S)!ITS A REAL TORTURE FOR MY EAR(S). The place having no entry fee/cover charge is a facility often abused by one and all. WHY SPEND ABOUT 500 BUCKS ON ENTRY TO A DISCOTHEQUE (LIKE TANTRA) ON SATURDAY NIGHT?BETTER SPEND THE SAME MONEY ON A FEW MORE ROUNDS OF BOOZE.MAKES A HELLUVA LOT OF SENSE.DOESN'T IT? Well!Talk about the MOTIVATION given to certain people(some only) to get really tipsy and spoil the ambience of the nightclub and with it the experience of others. A cover charge (which includes a coupon of the same price, to be redeemed against drinks inside) should certainly be introduced. The service is atrocious to say the least. However a decent selection of alcoholic beverages and cocktails are available. Price is okay. Finger food available is nothing to write home about; and of course if you have 300 people crowding into a reportedly 30 cover nightclub-cum-bar, wear CATERPILLER BOOTS. They have steel toes. Bouncers are somewhat conspicuous by their absence sometimes giving rise to a free-for-all. Doesn't help the families(men with their socially and legally married wives) much.The manager somehow gives the feeling that it is SOMEPLACE ELSE for only a select group of guests.


Pros : SATURDAY NIGHT BLUES BAND .


Cons: CLAUSTROPHOBIA,BREATHLESSNESS,HORRIBLE ACOUSTIC PROBLEM , ATROCIOUS SERVICE AND PROPENSITY TO FOOT INJURY.
