Taste of India Unveils U-Districts Newest Cocktail Lounge Sept 7

September 5th, 2014 · No Comments

Nestled adjacent to the much loved Taste of India Restaurant, Owner Mohammed Bhatti wanted to offer a place for the 21+ crowd to comfortably hang out for a pre-dinner drink.

The grand opening will take place Sat September 7. You can order from the Taste of India menu or partake in Indian twists on classic American bar food.

I talked to Managers Jerred and Phillip about what they were hoping this autonomous extension of the popular Indian restaurant would be like. They were excited to offer the U-district another Custom Cocktail experience and hope it ends up being the best!

The cozy lounge has a gas fireplace that is sure to heat up this winter along with any Indian spices you decide to partake in. I look forward to see if they fashion some custom cocktails with Indian flavors — the spicier the better!

Taste Of India Bar & Lounge is located at 5507 Roosevelt Way NE

(b/t 56th St & 55th St in University District)

Hours will be 11-11, but check the restaurant for any changes.
