Its monkey business -- as usual -- at Bangalore’s most popular gastro pub, and this time around, expect to find new signature dishes and drinks that are quirky and filled with new flavours. Monkey Bar in Indiranagar, always looking for new inspiration from traditional Indian foods and global favourites, brings comfort and crunchy goodness to the table with their own spin on things.

To elevate your spirits Monkey Bar offers you some brand new concoctions to wet the whistle. Try Mama’s Girl with vodka, pomegranate, chili and mint; or go back in time with Mad Men starring whiskey, coffee and orange shrub with rosemary. The only thing they can't promise you is John Hamm in a cocktail.

Start your feast at Monkey with the new Mac & Cheese with chili mayo and salsa or the golden fried Chicken 65, the best accessory to all things boozy. For a proper comfort binge, try the Kundapur style Prawn Ghee Roast with a delicate ghee rice add-on. As the Beatles sang, you've got to admit it's getting butter.

Keeping in mind Bangalore’s weakness for a good crisp thin crust pizza, Monkey Bar rolls out some new ones. Topped with mushrooms, truffle oil, feta and spinach, they're betting this will get you to eat your vegetables. For a more piquant variation, try the smoked Harissa Chicken with Chicken Salami, pickled onions and lemon zest. The Pork Lovers Pizza promises to be a delight with Goan chorizo and bacon. We’ll double oink to that.

If you’re already a fan of their classic burgers, we know you’ll drink to this: Monkey’s new Breakfast Burger offers a hearty combo of grilled chicken, avocado, fried egg and onion jam; while at the heart of the Greek Lamb burger is a spiced patty, cilantro pesto and tzatziki. Be sure to end your meal only after your quota of cinnamon dusted churros with Mexican chocolate. It’s all the energy you need to joyously swing out of this Monkey’s branch .

Getting there: 610, 12th Main Road, Indiranagar, call +91 80 4411445. Meal for two with alcohol excluding taxes is approximately Rs. 1800.
