We went here with some other travellers we had met who had been before.
This place is part of the nightclub and cinema complex. It does have comfy sofa's and windows over looking Shimla. Only there is no heating and the toilets are dark.
When we got our bill, that is when things went wrong. We were given a bill that had a higher amount added on to it. We said that we had not had that many beers. They have a computerised system that means that they have a specific bill for each table. We asked for that, we also asked to see the empty bottles. They showed us a crate that had 16 beers in it, which is what we thought that we had. They were trying to charge us for 21.
They looked up our drinks on the computer and when they knew that they were wrong, they snatched the computer screen away from us. My arm was hit in the process. They could not produce a receipt showing the 21 beers that they were trying to charge us for. We said that we would call the police, they said not to bother as they pay the police.
They then locked us in and would not let us leave. One of the staff was saying quietly that we did not have 21 beers. We gave them what we owed and they eventually let us out.
My boyfriend left his headphones there. We went back to get them the next day, they said that they did not have them and laughed at us.
Do not go to this place, see my other tip for Rendevous Bar and Restuarant
Dress Code: Do not go to this place
What we liked about this place is that women are welcome here. The staff are friendly and will happily talk to you about the cricket. They have a heater which is rare in Shimla. The drinks are reasonabily priced. I can also recommend the snacks.
A warm, friendly place to be.
