InOnIt Guides: Bizarre Bar Names in India
Hey, is this The Lazy Dog?
Do I sound like one to you?!
So, can I speak to the Drunken Munkey?
Excuse me! Is this a joke?
Okay, I think I got the wrong number.
You know your ‘last night’ stories are even more exciting if the venue happens to be bizarre. Restaurateurs in India have gone creative all the way from the food menu to the names of their bars or pubs. We list down a few bizarre bar names in India, along with more details about the venue – so you can have a laugh or two after reading everything whacky there is to know.
He Said She Said – Delhi
Now, not only does this name suggest that this is the place to be for all gossip lovers, it also leaves you wanting to know more. Maybe because the loud pop art on the walls with men and women in bright colours will bring out the gossip monger in you. And the bizarreness does not end at just the name of this shot bar. In their drinks menu, you will find signature shots with bases that include jalapenos, masala chai, tequila or chocolate. Names like Coco Chanel and Bollywood Hero under categories such as Spicy, Balls of Steel and It’s Different will make the rounds. Intrigued? We were too.

Or-G – Mumbai
Okay, how many out of the people who know Or-G exists in Mumbai, know that its name is derived from the bar’s full name – Original Gourmet? Yes, we didn’t think so too. A pun on its pronunciation, Or-G’s actual name is nowhere close to meaning the same as it sounds. Here, you will see spaces tagged as different sections such as Hot Stud, Love Machine, Sex and so on. The drinks menu too, includes saucy numbers like Orgasm, Melodrama and Hawaiian Fantasy. All right Or-G, we got your spot!
Address: 8/9, Navrang Building, Linking Road, Khar (W), Mumbai

Bak Bak Bar – Bangalore
You’re allowed to talk, scream and shout as much as you want here, that’s for sure. What’s more whacky about this place is the décor – bright, loud interiors, speakers popping out of the walls, a space for live music performances, everything here screams fun. The food menu is diverse and includes all types of cuisines with a desi hint. When it’s time to twist and shout, Bak Bak Bar is your place to be.
Address: 1, Kira Layout, Opposite Prestige Acropolis, Hosur Main Road, Koramangala, Bangalore

Drunken Munkey – Mumbai
The idea here is simple – stop monkeying around and have fun! This bar with pocket-friendly prices replaced Fat Cat (yet another funny bar name) in Andheri. The bar is designed such to give you a tropical feel with natural wooden fences, shrubs growing all along the outside section and trees on their walls too. You will see wine glasses hanging upside down from the ceiling, probably the doing of the Drunken Munkey. Here you can call for Asian and Oriental dishes and also enjoy karaoke nights on Tuesdays.
Address: 9/10, Bharat Ark, Veera Desai Road, Azad Nagar, next to ICICI Bank, Andheri (W), Mumbai 400053

Kitty Su – Delhi
An imaginary woman, a mascot for their brand, Kitty Su is modern yet rooted to her beliefs and traditions. The hub of electronic dance music in Delhi, Kitty Su is all about sophisticated partying, what with having an A List area called The List, a mini nightclub within the club called The Salon and a Champagne lounge known as The Dressing Room. This is one swish nightclub that is all about the glitz!
Address: The Lalit, Connaught Place, New Delhi 110001
Contact Number: 09650400444
Ooze The Brauhaus – Chandigarh
A German micro-brewery in Panchkula, its name is as fascinating as the extensive variety of beer that it serves. Ooze The Brauhaus gets its matt from Australia, yeast from Belgium and France and hops from Germany, Czech and USA. You can pair them with their food, which is a mix of Indian, Oriental and international cuisines.
Address: SCO 328, First Floor Sector-9, Panchkula, Haryana
Contact Number: +91 9888831390
Fork You – Delhi
Daylighting as a café that serves delicious steaks and burgers, Fork You turns into a full-fledged cocktail bar at night. What makes this bar as bizarre as its name, are the experimental drinks and shots created here. From Bubble Gum shots with Peach Foam to Clove and Tequila shots, you’d want to get forked up here.
Address:30, First Floor, Hauz Khas Village, New Delhi, India 110016

The Lazy Dog
The name itself makes you want to just relax and listen to some soothing music to ease a hard day’s work. And that’s exactly what The Lazy Dog offers – jazz music to melodiously while away time over Lazy Tails and Classic Tails that include quirky drinks like Kala Khatta Chuski and Khaus Margarita.
