Eid is just around the corner and after a month dedicated to spirituality and praying, now is the time to crack on and celebrate the end of Ramadan. If you have been wondering how could you make your Eid celebrations more happening, where to go, what to do and where to eat. Well, we have just the thing for you!
We have curated a list of our favourite places in Lucknow where you can go and have a loads of fun, eat, party and celebrate Eid in style.
1. The Drowning Street
The Drowning Street in Gomti Nagar is the elegant party town you want to hit, if what you crave is a dose of sophistication wrapped up in a good meal, excellent ambience and a lit AF time. This is the place to be to let loose, enjoy some sheesha or some pretty straight up amazing iced tea, laugh with friends over a beautifully made dish and have the time of your life.
2. Munick- Bistro and Bar
Munick- Bistro and Bar is a dream come true for boozeheads and foodies alike. The place is a go to, when you crave a good drink to drown the heat and simply have a good time. Order yourself a few shots or a good coffee, you’re going to enjoy yourself either way.
P.S. The pasta here is amazing, do not give it a miss.
3. Be The Beer Season 2
Bee The Beer is a recent addition to Lucknow’s cafe scene and we are still not over the rustic decor and the whimsical vibe of this place. You will find some of the best grub at the cafe and we would recommend saving some space in your stomach for all the delicious food you’re going to get here. Order yourselves some burgers and a few shakes and get into a much needed food coma after a month full of fasting.
4. Bombay Brasserie
Bombay Brasseries in Gomti Nagar is one of the few places we can never have enough of. This place has made a home in our hearts with its amazing food, an overall wonderful ambience and service that is exceptional. If you are a lover of meat, get yourself the boti double roti, keema mughlai paratha, mango prawn curry, Rajputana murg soola kebab or Bombay dhaba gosht and drown yourself in all the delicious meatiness. You can also order a bunch of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages to beat the heat and get yourself a meal which is unforgettable.
5. Irani Kafe by Vintage Machine
Irani Kafe by Vintage Machine is our go to place when we need a little sufi music, Awadhi-Mughlai dishes with a Parsi twist and a thandai so good, it cools down our soul. Irani Kafe is the perfect place for people who enjoy a plateful of luxury, a damn good meal and the added sparkle of sitting in a beautiful vintage setting. We would strongly recommend getting the mango thandai, the shabnami mushroom korma, nalli-nihari, any and every tea and the vegetarian galouti kebabs.
6. G T Road
If you’re thinking of stuffing yourself with delicious food this Eid, head to G T Road, an absolute favourite when it comes to buffets and Indian food. Well, who can ever say that they’ve had enough of kebabs, paranthas or chaat? Not Me. You need to be here and eat everything that the place has to offer, from the memsahib’s iced tea, the papdi chaat to the delicately prepared meat dishes, have it all and complete your meal with a creamy paan ice cream or a delicious besan laddoo.
7. Aadab- Dayal Paradise
Aadab in Dayal Paradise is a legendary outlet. It is fine dining taken up a notch and we are in awe. The beautiful restaurant is offering a 24 hour long sehri and iftaari special meal on the 7th of June and they would be serving a special Ramadan menu. So head there and break your fast in the most luxurious of settings. Get yourself some good food and bid adieu to the holy month.
These are the places where you can head and up your Eid celebrations a notch, fill your stomach with delicious dishes and overwhelm your senses with the wafting aroma of food and love.
Eid Mubaarak people.
