Beetroot, apples and maple cocktails at Vapor Lounge Bar come with a side of imagination.
Here’s a new entrant to the city’s pub scene—the kind that Chennai has had a long time coming. Vapor Lounge Bar at the newly launched Feathers-A Radha Hotel promises to be the nightlife headquarters of the city. Swanky décor, dim lighting and comfortable seating (both indoors and outdoors) make it one for those long evenings with friends. Give your regular poison a pass and ask for the innovative cocktail menu here. The Maple Sour, a different take on the classic Whiskey Sour is smokey, with a flavour of cedarwood and bittersweet maple syrup that blends seamlessly with whiskey. The cocktails are served on wooden platters with fruit skewers for your drink. A few cocktails might leave you with a crowded table but then, who’s complaining? Drop the Blood, a deep red cocktail is a unique combination of vodka, beetroot and ginger. We love how the two come together in a mildly sweet concoction.
The lounge has a huge variety of finger foods to choose from and here too, the presentation is designed to impress. The Warm Sprouts Salad is served in conical papads in a glass. The Vapor Salad with warm poached chicken, greens and cheese lemon dressing is tender and tangy, making it quite the perfect pub grub. However, the star of the evening turned out to be the Greek Spanakopita, a filo pastry stuffed with spinach, pomegranate and feta cheese. The soft and flaky pastry was packed with flavours and is something we are sure to go back for.
