Situated right across The Hub on the ground level at Taj Bengal, Junction Bar is one of the classiest lounges in the city. The very attractive bar stocks some of the rarest whiskey and premium vodka labels. The black leather chairs and sofas that are systematically scattered all over the place are perfectly comfortable, whether you choose to spend a sophisticated night out with friends or have a few drinks while discussing business matters. In keeping with the name, the bar has a railway junction theme that is subtly represented in articles like miniature train engines and old black and white maps on the walls. An enclosed corner to the left of the space is reserved for live acts that perfectly complement the general atmosphere of relaxed conversation.
If dinner with a little bit of entertainment is what you have in mind, Trincas is just the place for you. All the other restaurants on Park Street have been unable to continue the tradition of live music and cabaret that once was the accepted and celebrated norm here. But, the live acts at Trincas reign supreme even today. Needless to say, it is absolutely adored among tired office-goers from around the area. It also happens to be one of the few restaurants serving pork preparations in the vicinity. The menu includes Indian, Chinese and Continental dishes and happy hours are there in the evening. This is a perfect place for some time out with friends, especially if you plan to hop into Someplace Else or HHI Underground later.
