Drinks – Cocktails & Conversations is located right on the edge of MG Road and Church Street. As the name suggests the place is known for its extensive drinks menu. The outlet is huge and is spread across 2 floors. The look of the MG Road is quite stunning from here as they have huge glass windows.

What differentiates this place from the other places on this pub/bar district is their food. Drinks have some phenomenal food items. We ordered the Primavera Pizza, which comes with a topping of olives and green bell peppers. The taste of this thin crust Pizza was excellent. Next we tried the Bell Pepper rolls and zucchini with Goat cheese, a cold dish but amazing in taste. The flavors of the grilled Bell Pepper with Goat cheese was nothing less than exotic. The Penne Mozzarella Pasta came next. The taste of this pasta was homely with a very simple preparation. The pasta was topped with cubes of buffalo mozzarella cheese.

For drinks we had the Mai Tai and the Classic Mojito. Both the drinks were refreshing in taste. Drinks is a rare combination of drinks with amazing food as well. We also tried some house cigars which turned out to be an lifetime experience.

So many good things to say but I'll keep it simple. Great hip hop/80-90s/pop dance music, quality food, amazing signature cocktails and super friendly staff. You can hang and chat with friends and close the place down with a dance party. No place like this in town..it's a must!

Drinks On MG which is located at the Church Street end of MG road got on to my radar of places when I witnessed their bartender Alfonso Del Portillo get crowned the best bartender of India at a competition last month. The entrance is bedecked with a Cocktail Shaker; however it is very easy to miss the place. Once you walk up to the first floor you find a place which is very casual with comfortable seating. The bar is one of the prettiest I have seen, not by layout but by the sheer array of ingredients laid out including a host of bitters.
Alfonso was prompt to attend us as he concocted his winning drink at the competition; made with Ciroc it has tomato and basil, Licorice, wine and other myriad flavours. It came at a steep Rs 700 as compared to a chilli scented Indian Daiquiri laced with caramel which was astonishingly priced at Rs 200. A closer look at the menu and we couldn’t believe our eyes, cocktails and of such brilliant quality starting at Rs 200++ makes it our preferred cocktail destination in Bengaluru at least on quiet weekdays. On weekends we will leave it for some other day. We did not taste the food and are rating the place purely on the drinks experience.

Cheers!

Good place to hangout, rewind and reel into some good old chat and masti with friends. The drinks menu had plenty of options to choose from but the food options for vegetarian is less. We had nothing to munch on apart from each others head. So my rating is low for this place but overall a good place.

Hi Parivesh

At the outset, we'd like to thank you for unwinding at DOMG. We understand however that your experience was not up to your expectations.
We have worked on our menu to include more vegetarian options as you rightly pointed out.
We hope you visit us again as we'd love to serve you better.

- Team DOMG
