NYE 2019: Where to party on a working Monday
Presumably, the final upset of 2018 is that 31st December 2018 is a working Monday. For most, it is time to head to work with a fresh new mind ready for the upcoming week. If you are working in Manyata Tech Park, then you will spend all the time in the evening travelling back home with the usual manic Monday traffic doubling up as New Year’s Eve. If you decide to stick around your workplace till evening, and looking for dinner followed by a few drinks and dancing at a classy rooftop venue with the view of the ORR, then Nazaara at the Courtyard by Marriott, Hebbal is your go-to place on NYE.
Nazaara is the latest addition to the portfolio of the Marriott chain of luxury fine dining restaurants. Located at the Terrace floor of the property, It offers stunning views of the adjoining Hebbal lake as well as the Outer Ring Road and is open for dinner only. The cuisine served here is authentic North Indian with stunning décor sure to sweep you off your feet.
As you enter, Nazaara welcomes you with a long corridor leading to the al-fresco section of the restaurant overlooking the stunning views of the city by night. The indoor section has a long table to accommodate about 12 guests on one side of the wall. The décor here is contemporary chic and epitomises the indulgence of the colonial era with subtle touch of royalty. The staff is extremely well trained and attentive to every need and always ready to refer you dishes and specials of the day.
From the Non Vegetarian Appetisers, the Gilawat Ki Kebab and Tandoori Kasundi Salmon are must-tries. The former is one of the best in the city and chef makes sure that they do melt in your mouth, and then some. If you are ready to take on a whole leg of a very well-marinated and presented Lamb, then the Peshawari Raan is enough to start your Mains with some Roti or Naan.
For the Vegetarians, their Lehsuni Haryali Paneer Tikka is as perfect as it can get. For your mains, the Dal Tadka Masala and the Seengdana Aloo is highly recommended. If you are a rice person, then the Subz Biryani or the Gosht Biryani is definitely going to wow your staple needs.
No matter what your preference, the Nazaara Shahi Tukda and the Malai Kulfi is definitely worth trying from their dessert offering and then drooling for. For lovers of South Indian delicacies, Nazaara also offers a limited option of Vegetarian and Non Vegetarian favourites in their menu. The dishes here are simple, but their aroma, taste and presentation speak for themselves. You must try Murali’s innovative cocktails like the Royal B’lore Dream and the Nazaara Pearl to sip with your dishes.
The outdoor seating is more al-fresco and the half-oval bar has a unique appeal of its own. The stunning views of the city by night and comfortable lounge seating call for a casual evening out with a few drinks over conversation. The resident Dj is sure to make your NYE 2019 special with requests and tunes to dance your night away. The exotic feel of the outdoor section makes Nazaara even more special and renders its unique identity unparalleled by any other at the terrace level of Courtyard by Marriott, Hebbal.
If you are working elsewhere in the city, you can look for the Best NYE 2019 Parties around your vicinity anywhere in Bangalore. As far I am concerned, I will be partying at The Park, Bangalore where Aqua by the pool and Ibar will be hosting one of the biggest NYE parties in the CBD area like every year. Keep rocking and have a safe NYE.
