Though the Pink City is well known for its heritage, rich culture and vibrant history, the city is seeing a substantial growth in terms of cafes and quirky joints across all areas. One such honky-tonk in the city is Bottles & Chimney or Cafe #BC, as it is affectionately called.
This place has it all- from great food to one of a kind drinks and a great ambience which is why it is the perfect place to hob with a couple of friends.
Since its inception, Cafe #BC has been an eye catcher and a head turner. It is the sort of place that you see from the outside and its alluring charm draws you inwards, where you can take in the multitude of experiences it holds for visitors.
Jaipurites have quickly become a fan of not only the North Indian cuisine here, but also the nachos, honey chili potatoes, cocktails and mocktails. Another neat addition is that with the IPL ongoing, they have match screenings and a few offers going on, which is why you've got to check them out.
One of the best thing about Cafe #BC is that it is up and running till 2:00 AM, which makes it the best spot for those late night dinner and drinks cravings. The place is happening and so much so that every Saturday, they have a DJ Night, where you can dance your worries away. But wait! There's more. Every Sunday, they have either a comedy show or a soothing music show, where you can relax and unwind with a few drinks.
The ambience here is rather inviting, quirky and at the same time, opulent, giving it a unique charm unlike any other place in Jaipur. The place is spacious and has enough area to make those DJ nights full of fun, frolic, drinks and loads of dancing.
With so many charming things here, you might think that the prices are exorbitant and you'll be burning a hole through your pocket. But not really. Here, everything is reasonably priced, which is perhaps why it is almost always packed with the younger, college going crowd, making it one of the most hep places in the city.
The food here is one of the main reasons you'll be here so let's talk about that. These guys specialize in North Indian, Continental and Finger food- and yes, "specialize" is the right word. Each of the dishes here are carefully crafted, with much love, affection and of course spices thrown in. The fan favourites here are the baked nachos, manchurian pizza and the chinese starters, which complement the drinks very well.
For the main course too, there are a range of mouth watering options to choose from. You can either go full North Indian- with the oldies such as Rajdarbari Ghosht- which is a succulent mutton dish fit for royalty- paired with some buttery naan, or for the herbivores, some Mushroom Bawri Handi, would be a great choice.
They even have some oriental as well as continental dishes that are absolutely delectable and will give any other well known place a run for their money. There pastas are cheesy (the good kind), loaded with a sauce of your choice and have big chunks of chicken.
No meal is complete without some drinks that pair with the flavours and that is exactly why there are myriad cocktails and mocktails to choose from. Each of them are the bartender's specials which you won't find anywhere else. Apart from that, they even have regular happy hours from 11:00AM to 2:00AM, so if you're in for afternoon drinking or evening drinking, you've got a place to be at.
Though Jaipur has a lot of great cafes and bistros to chill at, #BC stands out in a league of its own and the regular offers, events and shows make it a popular spot for the young, hep crowd of Jaipur. A visit here with your friends will have you coming back for more every time.
