There’s No More Sip between the cup & the lip.

17 Feb


Though Bangalore is famous for 2B’s (Babes and Booze),there’s a set of crowd  who opt for Indian Coffee House in the weekends.Thanks to its Old-Fashioned Ceilings,Museum Styled Fans,Turban Clad Servers Serving Coffee in China Clay Cup & Saucers.Thus creating a Vintage Ambience which takes us to  Late 70’s – 80’s[i.e.No-Nonsense IT Era].This homely atmosphere creates the difference and makes ICH stand ahead of Baristas and Coffee Days.But all these special moments are jus for another 12 days,Yes!!! Indian Coffee House gonna close down its shutters by the end of this month.Though  i dunno the reason for the closure,i was bit depressed and shocked ever since i read the news in outlook,Coz i have no other choice in MG Road.Jus being there 15 – 30 mts with glancing a book by sipping a steamy cup of coffee makes more special than in any other outlets in Bangalore.Infact many a times i had bought a book from Higginbothams jus to leaf over there with a cup of coffee.Adding to this gals too join with us for a coffee in the Opp.Seat(but sadly with their boyfriends.)Dunno where i have to look for all these things from next month?

    Hey Dude,
    I have been to ICH once I think. If it is closing down it is a really sad news. Do you know the MTR restaurant in Bangalore? I think it is somewhere near the Lalbagh Road. It was a famous restaurant and they used to serve authentic veg meals. The restaurant opened at 12 in the noon and people would queue in front of it at 11. The interiors are decorated with photos of Nehru, Gandhiji and other leaders visiting the place and there is nothing IT about it.

    You been there? Are they still in the business?

    It has opened up many branches but the one in lalbagh is the best….

    oh! is it so?

    I went there on 28th Feb around 7.00pm.
    There was no sign of closing. So I was in a thought they might be postponed their closure.
