High Ultra Lounge -Bangalore's Latest High | Brigade Group -Review


Call it urge to visit my earlier city Bangalore and see how much the Food and Beverage scene progressed and coupled with sheer luck, I got an invite from the Brigade Hospitality Services Limited (BHSL)  to visit their latest property at Malleshwaram called High Ultra Lounge and review it. Conceptualized to be India’s most successful F&B destination and Bangalore’s crowning jewel and after seeing it with my own eyes I can surely say that they are on their way with a bang. So if I could put it in a nutshell, this is a place which would be a must visit for many travelers and locals who wish to relax, wine and dine at the highest point in the South India ( Literally at 421 feet above the ground).
                                                             
I took this pic from the high speed lift
When we arrived we were warmly welcomed by all the Management Team. They were Pravesh Pandey Director of OperationsNirupa Shankar Director of Brigade HospitalityVineet Verma- Executive Dir. - HospitalityZhang Hao Executive Chef and Guruprashanth Director of Bar. They took personal care to ensure that we are comfortable and all our queries about the lounge are answered to our satisfaction. 

Spread lavishly across 10,000 square feet, on the roof top of the World Trade Center, with seating for 220 covers at a height of 421ft. Blending the outdoors and indoors with breathtaking views of the city with classy interiors, the venue takes it to the next level and I reckon would surely exceed the expectations for visitors and party goers in Bangalore. One more point is that there are four zones with distinct identities which could be opened and closed with great flexibility. A guest could choose his zone according to suit his/her mood and relax while enjoying an awesome array of Oriental cuisines and drinks ( both alcoholic and non alcoholic).
So if we categorize the zones they are named as follows : 


HIGH VIEW is a lounge space that has open-to-sky seating, vertical gardens and the best spot to catch the last rays of the sun every evening. When I reached there the ambiance was breathtaking. The furniture are smartly chosen which can be moved with the number of visitors.There are sunbeds for those who want to have a lazy evening sipping on sangria and watch the sun go down. 


 The space is 3,600 ft and is ideal for groups and large parties that want to enjoy great food and good beverages and fine company under the clear blue Bangalore skies. Did I forget to tell you that Nirupa help back a surprise for us? As soon as she had announced that she has something to show us, we all were guessing what it could be???

Surprise: Helipad that can be booked for exclusive dining !!!
HIGH DINE is a fine dining experience set against a water body and elements that are a perfect accent for a relaxed and well prepared meal. The food served is Pan Asian comfort food with dishes from Japanese, Korean, Thai and Chinese cuisines. 

Fresh ingredients to create classic dishes with a modern twist and exciting presentation
The area is 2,400 ft and open to sky. What better way to enjoy a meal than with friends and family, underneath the city’s stars?
                          Vineet Varma & Pawan Soni sharing dinner with us....
 Masaman Lamb Curry was nothing notable but Miso Soup was such a relief when we were fighting to keep ourselves warm as there was sudden dip in temperature.Though we were stuffed still had to make room for Banoffee Pie and ice-cream ...



HIGH MIX is a space buzzing with energy and a range of signature cocktails to create new experiences for the city’s nightlife. 

Way through the corridor to High Mix...


The space is ethereal with its dusky views and subtle lighting. Acoustically treated glass to ensure the thumping beats keep up with the thumping feet. 

2,000 ft of space to mix and meet while sipping on cocktails created by internationally acclaimed mixologists. In between Chef Zang introduced himself and gave us 2 individual preparations to sample and asked us to guess the ingredients ! It was so much fun !


The perfect way to spend a night with an international crowd at the highest point in South India. Thanks to Guru the drinks that was served over there were exotic and brilliantly done. 
                                           Some Cocktails we tried...
HIGH EDGE an exclusive area for special occasions, with a stand alone bar, that provides for the most spectacular views of the city . The space has the extra edge to make things happen. In an inspiring venue, ideas come alive. Deals go through. 
Secluded and private, this 1400 ft of space is where stars and earth meet. Personally I loved this zone as the view from the top at night is simply breathtaking when you sit and dine at the glass enclosed with almost 180 degrees views of the city. So check out Bangaloreans this Lounge to feel the experience and am sure soon it will be one of the destination for tourist too 'to do things in Bangalore'. Would like to thanks Anamika for giving me this opportunity. If you are still in wondering why i said so have a look at the below picture....
