Knocksense: A local content and recommendations platform

Who doesn’t like hanging out with friends and grabbing a quick drink to de-stress. To let the tensions of everyday humdrum life slip away and unwind with a good beer or a tall glass of wine is a pleasure not many can deny. So, here’s our top places in Kanpur to hangout with friends and grab a quick drink.

1. Liquid

Liquid is a beautiful place, the interiors here are warm, open and landscaped to perfection. The pub offers a stunning view of the city’s skyline and is the ideal place to grab a lazy brunch or a dinner with you pals. We recommend getting a couple of Carlo Rossi, or a pitcher of Liquid special Sangria as an ideal pairing for your brunch or a pint of beers while you have a nostalgia loaded get-together with friends. The pub offers a varied collection of shots, malts and liquors, so if you’re looking for something special you’ll be sure to find it here.

2. The Mill

The Mill Club is one of the most loved pubs in Kanpur. The pub has a whimsical decor, the exposed pipes, metal and rustic wood furniture gives an industrial feel to the place. The vibe here is also quite chill and the soft lighting makes sure that the party mood is taken care of. The Mill is also one of the most reasonable places in Kanpur and the food here is pretty great too. We would recommend getting a few Hoegardens, chicken masala popcorns, a thin crust florentine pizza, some potato wedges and simply chilling with friends.

3. The Yacht Club

The Yacht Club is again, one of the most loved places in town. Though, a little on the pricier end of things, the club is ideal place to party with friends and enjoy some good quality liquor. The club has a full bar available and you can pick and choose from a number of options. We recommend ordering the special cocktails, as the club is known for them and if you’re feeling a little OTT (over the top), you can go for the shooters and if you feel boujee spend your earnings away in aged liquor and truly live your life king sized.

4. Yu Lounge & Bar

Yu Lounge is on the more lavish side of pubs and bars in Kanpur. The interiors here are decorated with purpose and precision and come together to create a very elegant decor. Watermelon Ginger Martini and Tequila Maria are the pub’s specials other than the basic champagnes and sparkling wines. We recommend trying the Espresso Martini and Rusty Nail for the bravehearted and the Saint Jean Chardonnay for those who want to keep it classy.

5. Shor

Shor is another place where you can chill with a group without worrying too much about the bill. The pub comes highly recommended for party animals who want to raise the roof every other day and not burn a hole in their pockets. The Bombay Bramble and The Lemon Cello are highly recommended here, you can also go for shooters like Brain Haemorrhage and Autumn Flame to get into the party spirit. If you’re looking to chomp on some grub, the Indian here is ideal.

So what are you waiting for? Head to any one of these places and party away your youth because YOLO. Watch this space for more.
