If you stay in Salt Lake or work in the Sec V/Rajarhat area, I’m sure you have heard about Bakstage, the Resto Rock Pub. It came as a blessing for people who work in that area because till then, apart from a few restaurants, there was no place where you could go to after work to unwind, have a few drinks, listen to good music and also eat good food. Bakstage changed all that three years back and even though a few similar places have opened since then, the original one still rocks!
Bakstage is divided into two sections. The ground floor has the cafe and bakery and the first floor is where all the pub action takes place. Every day something or the other keeps happening like Sufi Wednesdays, Karaoke Thursdays etc. Right now, they are having the Octoberfest till 3rd Oct so if you want to guzzle a few beers, head over there. I visited Bakstage a few days back and tasted some dishes from their latest menu. Since I went there after work, I was advised to try out the Beer Margarita, a mammoth drink! It has the ‘goodness’ of a margarita and a beer together so you can very well imagine what the after effect will be like. If you have had a particularly rough day at work and just want to drown yourself in alcohol, this is the perfect drink!
