Manhattan, The Craft Brewery and Exchange

The first thing that catches your fancy when you enter Manhattan, Brewery and Bar Exchange at Level 1 of the Global Foyer Mall on Golf Course Road, Gurgaon, is the huge copper brew house. Shining cylindrical vessels connected to each other through pipes, they remind you of a vintage Brewery of Germany, but what's brewing inside them is beer - different flavours of it rather! Yes, it is one of the largest and finest microbreweries in the country! While you appreciate the aesthetic effect of 'beer on tap', the large format screens are sure to attract your attention next. But why have six of them all at one place? Well, four of them are for a very exciting concept - motion-based interactive gaming. Sip your beer and then fight it out...on the screens! The two really large ones in the center serve as an interactive backdrop to the stage during events. And if you happen to be a soccer and cricket aficionado who wishes to catch the action live 70mm style, then this place is sure to rock you.

The street art at the terrace is already a talk of the town and adds to the open feel. At Bronx the alcohol menu is very elaborate with its star the brewed beer. It comes in 4 types, Wheat, Lager Dark & Ale. The food menu is very exciting with a whole lot of options of lip smacking starters and main course covering Indian, Chinese, Tex Mex, European, Italian, Mediterranean and American Cuisine.

UPTOWN - Situated in the midst of Galleria Market, DLF Phase IV, Dressed up in its warm and cozy ambience they serve you the best of international dishes to make for a memorable dining experience.

Lagom exudes warm & earthy colors, lively sounds and a very distinct ambience, which adds to the raw yet modern feel of the restaurant concept.

 QUAFF  - Quaff is an upscale brewpub, located in DLF cyber hub Gurgaon. Already famous for its finest brews, Quaff is the only place in Gurgaon which focuses on making some real craft beer. For the first time these guys introduced TRUE IPA and DUNKELWEIZEN.

HOUSE OF COMMONS - Nothing common at all



House of commons, is a gastro pub located in the heart of Delhi –Connaught Place. The name of this place is influenced by the lower house of parliament of United Kingdom. This place provides an old world charm of the British colonial architecture.

Ambience- The ambience completely justifies the name. The Brit influence can be felt, very well as the ambience portrays the cool look of the city of London. The walls are adorned with everything that comes in mind when one thinks of the city: the tube, the clubs and the Trademark Double decker bus. The lighting is a bit dim and the furniture is red and green. There is ample seating space here, divided into different sections, which can serve good number of guests at one time.

Food Menu- The menu is perfectly executed, serving typical gastro pub food yet maintaining a balance in best of Indian and International cuisines. Thus suits the hearty need of every individual customer. One of the customized parts of their food menu is the description about either the food or its origin.



Food-The food is comforting and hearty in its true sense and has been expertly paired with good choice of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Some cocktails and mocktails are truly class apart.

Some of their starters in Vegetarian include…

 -Palak Patta Chaat – Crispy palak patta topped with yogurt, tamarind and sevs. This Indian chaat option can never go wrong with taste and is made perfectly. Truly a repeat dish.

- Tacos with salsa- a crisp bed of baked mozzarella cheese, filled with yogurt, kidney beans and salsa. A lip smacking Mexican delight to indulge in.

- Mezze platter - a combination of favourite Lebanese snacks served with different dips.

- HOC club sandwich- fresh breads stuffed with bell peppers, zucchini and tomatoes. A healthy option to munch on.

-Chilly paneer crispy cups- small crispy and flaky cups made of filo pastry filled with chilly paneer.

- Red wine poached pear salad was a good twist and different from regular salads. A must try.



All the options are a must try and completely serves the purpose of a pleasurable foodie delight.

There is a great variety in the non-veg section too. Fiery Chicken wings, chicken satay, fish n chips Juicy Lucy mutton patty burger and not to forget the non veg platter dishes. Even the veg tandoori platter is a must try. Crispy Calamari was also done very nicely.
Special mention to the Maska Pav with Anda bhaji, which has a rich taste of butter and awesome Egg  Bhurji . Totally wins a huge round of applause among other non-veg dishes.

To continue a foodie’s undying journey, one can even opt for Dal Makhni with Naan or a Parantha. Even the pizzas veg/non-veg are very delicious, loaded with cheese and other toppings. The oriental fare which includes the ever-popular chilli paneer and chicken were too good served with noodles and rice.

Drinks/Shakes- A party is always incomplete without round of drinks and HOC excels in serving the best of them. Deconstructed Sex on the beach, Drunken tea master and the Smoked apple mojito were really nice cocktails.

For non alcoholics the Mix berry smoothie, Oreo shake, Hide n seek shake are good options available plus a few good mocktails too.

Currently, he manages a vast portfolio of over clients, including the Manhattan Group that operates 6 brewpubs in Gurgaon.
