The Irish House Goes Through A Swanky Revamp In BKC | New Opening
Didn’t we all have that one bar where we grew up? Where we spent so many afternoons, and countless weekends with our friends during that stage when we were just discovering proper drinking? There are few pubs in Bombay that feel like home. When we think about our favourite pubs, Irish House is always there on the list, simply owing to its nostalgia, comfort, and the sheer simplicity it stands for. We have always been fans of the easy-going, speakeasy style vibe of Irish House, where you can kick-back and relax, yet still have a super exciting experience.
Established six years ago, Irish House now has about 19 outposts across the span of the country! Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi NCR and Belagavi have all been wooed by the vibrant culture of this pub. This week, they’re all set to launch their newest outlet in the swanky, corporate hub of BKC. We visited the outlet over the weekend and wanted to tell you what to expect!
One word: Upgrade. Detaching from the easy-going pub identity, the BKC Irish House is now a proper party-pad. Irish House’s new outlet boasts of a huge space which seats 200 people. Maintaining the same decor as its other branches with exposed brick walls, high bar stools, a well-stocked bar, cool quotes on the wall, and a touch of Irish green, they have added a contemporary touch to the classic pub vibe.
Unlike the other venues that are usually dimly lit, this branch has a lot of natural lighting flooding through it. The entire space has a bright freshness and depth enhanced by the inclusion of standing and floating green planters, a glass greenhouse-inspired smoking zone and interesting lighting giving it the feel of being alfresco, indoors, and putting on the super chill persona that we are all suckers for.
Office-goers, this makes for a great co-working space in the day as well, with it’s beautiful outdoor garden setting endowed with long community style work tables with sufficient charging points and natural lighting. Besides, a little party on a weekday never hurt anybody!
Coming to the food and drinks, the menu remains true to its Irish House roots with all our favourites still around, and some exciting additions. An open kitchen will dish out delicious wood-fired pizzas, juicy burgers fresh off the grill, yummy BBQ and lots more. Beer lovers, rejoice! Their fully stocked long bar has 24 taps for fresh craft and draught brews! Yes, you read that right! This includes international favourites like Erdinger, Hoegaarden and Edelweiss sitting alongside local brews from breweries like Gateway, Independence and Brewbot among others, the BKC outpost has them all! Grabbing a beer after work was never more tempting.
If The Irish House opening in BKC with all these super cool features was not enough, they are starting off with a kickass opening week. We spoke to Mr. Sanju Arora, General Manager of the brand who is all set to raise the ‘bar’ with this new opening. “We’ve planned a super fun launch week from 24th to 31st May to mark the opening of our 8th location in the city and the 19th one in the country. With 500 free beers on 24th May, a tribute to the best rock bands by Arunaja with her crew on 25th May, and Unconditional Happy Hours all day, all through the week, you wouldn’t want to miss this week long party!”
Get set for expertly curated music and game nights, monthly rock band performances, guest DJ artists, weekly acoustic acts, match screenings, unconditional happy hours, quick work lunches, lazy weekend brunches, food and drink festivals, and many more fun activities and offers, soon after the launch.
BKC fam, we are sure that this new bar will become your favourite post-work haunt, so head over there on 24th May, when they open their doors! Watch out for more updates on our Instagram page.
