IPL – Indian Premier League is that 2 months of the year when the cricket fever takes over the entire nation. Even those who hardly follow the sport can be seen rooting for their favorite team in the IPL, thanks to the sheer craze of the league. In fact, it won’t be wrong to say that cricket is a religion in India; IPL is the annual holy festival!
The amazing sporting festival that IPL is, it deserves to be celebrated in the fanciest, pompous, and fun way possible. With that thought in mind, I decided to give a match-time visit to one of the several franchises of Monkey Bar, who claim to be the best place to enjoy IPL matches live. Well, I must say my match viewing experience at Monkey Bar turned my one-time visit into being a frequent visitor to the bar-cum-restaurant.
Special arrangements for IPL Season @ Monkey Bar

• Special Menu of regionally inspired dishes

• Fun activities and networking opportunities
The Monkey Bar has made some really special arrangements for the IPL crazy fans during this year’s IPL, from March 23 to May 19, 2019. While the matches are screened live on massive screens in high definition, special dishes are served as per the cuisines of the teams playing, to extend the match rivalry and support for your team to your food plates as well!
Monkey Bar offers an unusually wide range of food items to choose from, but I tried a dish called Veggie Daredevils. Its pan-seared melt in the mouth vegetarian shami kebabs, made from lightly spiced raw jackfruit and lentils were simply amazing.
Skipper Rolls were very well done stuffed with Chargrilled Paneer Tikka. The taste is phenomenal and totally unique.
Gully Bao, it’s an amalgamation of Stuffed Bao, Misal, Farzan and Tomato onion salad, which forms a perfect platter to gaga! Spicy Rassa makes the dish complete.
The aam Panna inspired Mangaa was the best thing to top it with, and guess what, there was an unbelievable offer on it, thanks to the ongoing IPL season.
There are ample Non Vegetarian dishes like 65 Not Out, Murgh of the Match, Pork Powerplay, Laal Maas Royals, Fried Riders, Chicken Challengers, Capt Keema, Butter Chicken Bouncer and Full Toss Fish to name a few.
The outlets of Monkey Bar are present in Bangalore, Delhi, Bangalore, and Kolkata, but you can support any of your favorite team here. There are some of the meals being served at Monkey Bar this IPL season that will be on special IPL theme. Moreover, mocktails and drinks inspired by these cities, and named after the respective teams are a major match- time attraction.
The ambiance of the place is pitching perfect for a match viewing experience and gives you the jitters of in-stadium experience. The discussions, fan-moments and innocent rivalry that pop up during the matches, over the food, is something that you can’t find anywhere else!
My review is that visiting Monkey Bar at least once during the IPL season is a must. I’m sure you won’t regret the experience!
