2. Char Char


Who wouldn’t fancy sitting with amazing and affordable selection of drinks while watching people strolling along Oberoi Street?

Second on our list, here is Char Char. Established in 2015; this place has stolen our hearts for its unique architectural and interior structure. The place is divided into three parts with the spacious area of indoor and outdoor for dining with families and friends and another one (a.k.a the famous one) is the outdoor which is designed to be in escalating seating arrangements. So once you get there you will be given options to sit on the top level or bottom depending on the seat occupancy but let me tell you both offer astonishing view towards the street and the happenings around the area.


Designed to be the hangout place for every one of all ages, the outer part of Char Char offers wide selection of drinks from the cute (and you must try) Cotton Candy Mocktails (35K) and Cotton Candy Cocktails (45K) to various beers, wines and spirits. Their concept of wooden seats combined with the white walls and warm yellow lighting really warm up the atmosphere stimulating a comfortable and enjoyable moments in the evening.
