As long as the nightlife scene in Pune goes, its pretty diverse and active, but we men are suckers for a good bar! Few options have been available to us purists, alas always lacking something or the other. It was either the ambiance, the crowd (or the lack of it), boring photo-copied menus or little things like parking, distance, music and blah blah blah.
Now all of our prayers have been answered, cause Jimmy Hu has opened right in Koregaon Park! We were invited for the launch party which had a very tongue-in-cheek theme of “Hu’s Who of Pune” along with their social media campaign on twitter and facebook. It works for us, cause who doesn’t wanna crack a Hu Cares joke, Right?
What’s inviting to us is the easiness of the whole experience. Head there post work or on weekend and you’re greeted by colorful and inviting ambiance. Press Note:
The vibe is relaxed and stylish and you immediately feel chilled. This is a space for any
occasion or the lack thereof. Friendly and intimate, made for conversations and winding
down. Pune’s party people have a new watering hole in the heart of Koregaon Park.
Drinks are standard along with their promise of Fresh Fruit Cocktails, which don’t have any synthetic or artificial flavoring. The Jimmy Jar is a potent bar special and a must have! The Food on the other hand is going to make you take notice… it’s inspired by Asian Flavors and our favorites were the Shanghai Chat (warm peanut chat with sprouts and veggies) and the Jimmy Hu Raps which are a “DIY” version of wraps with a selection of meats or vegetables. Little Burgers sound interesting and need to be tried.
All this goes really well with the music, which is a combination of Nu Disco, Prog House and Deep House. We preferred to sit outside and chill, but the bar inside is pretty cool too.
Average cost per head according to them is Rs. 1000-1200 and the place is open through 5:30 pm – 11:30 pm.
Note: If you see some familiar faces, you should know that this is the same venture by people behind places like WTF! Pune, Loca Loca, Khar, Mumbai and The Big Nasty in Bandra Mumbai.
We wish you many ‘Hu Da Man moments!’ Sorry couldn’t help it
