Knocksense: A local content and recommendations platform

Hanging out with friends and having a few drinks after a long day of working hard is quite honestly the best way to destress. Jaipur being the melting pot of cultures and people has a vibrant nightlife, yet we constantly look for new and better places to 'hang with the gang'. If you too are in search of a party destination where craft cocktails and gourmet food can put you under a spell, head to Akh Bar at Lal Kothi.

Akh Bar

The bar is located on the top floor of a premium hotel, hence the view here is stunning. You also have an outdoor seating option so you have the option to pick between a stunning view of the Indore sky and the comfortable interiors.

Speaking of interiors, when we talk about Indore, there are not many places in the city which can match up to the kind of ambience that you get at Akh Bar. We are especially a fan of the beautiful lighting, it adds a ton to the décor that TBH is done beautifully.

Bati Canapes at Akh Bar

Apart from the wonderful interiors, the retro-bar also offers a great selection of gourmet dishes that have been made specifically to be paired with the craft cocktails that the bar serves. The bar serves fusion food which has a hint of molecular gastronomy jazzed which is jazzed up with gourmet.

Biryani Falafel at Akh Bar

We would recommend trying the Bati canapes- bati chokha served in a beautiful canape version with lehsun (garlic) chutney, Biryani falafel with mix veg Tzatziki- biryani balls battered and deep fried to serve with a Mediterranean yoghurt dip and the Chinese Kurkuri for the love of sev and Chinese cuisine.

Persian Seductress at Akh Bar

And since, we are talking about a bar, we cannot overlook the liquor section. The bar does a perfectly Jaipur version of the classic Mojito- the Jaipur Pan Mojito which is a melange of flavours from the mint, the pan, and the liquor. You should also try the Persian seductress which is a perfect blend of gin, Persian tea and essence of rose.
