Riyaaz Amlani has created a monster of a “Social” network—there are seven outlets of this chain of bars already—and in less than two years. Each outpost has the same effect on patrons. The grunge, industrial décor lends a sense of a carefree, non-judgmental vibe, attracting hordes of people across age groups to it like bees to honey.
Not that we are city starved for bars and restaurants, but c’mon, which Indian doesn’t love a good deal? When I first heard Social is selling the dark rum for a mere ₹ 75, I was perplexed. Think about it—it costs more to just get to the nearest Social! (And I, who is living just five minutes from one, says this.) And that’s not the only deal—select Indian spirits are available for under ₹ 100 on Monday and Tuesday. They are standard prices for the entire evening. Regardless of how many people are ordering it, you’ll still pay just under ₹ 100 for each small peg. Drink responsibly though, rather than get inebriated. Pace yourself and chew down a platter of Nachos, Chicken Shawarma, Keema Pav or the very local Vada Pav Bao. Breads soak alcohol, which will give you ample time to soak in the cool vibes.
