HIGH Ultra Lounge – Brigade Hospitality – A Review

Have you ever dined in a restaurant which is on the 31st floor? Yes 31st floor i.e.. 421 feet above the ground level? That too a luxurious one? You must be wondering what I am talking about. Well I am talking about South India’s highest destination for food and beverages which is located on the 31st floor of The World Trade Center in Bangalore.
Yes on a busy Monday evening I got an invite to come and attend a preview of this restaurant. Initially I told them that I can’t attend this event as it’s was a Monday. But then my friend Anamika called me again and told me not to miss this event as it was really a big one. Once again, Anamika for inviting me.

I was too excited to see The World Trade Center in Bangalore. It was really very high. The restaurant was still higher and was not visible from the ground level. I got into the lift and it went up,up and up to the 31st floor. After getting in I met the fellow bloggers. Some of them had flown down from Delhi and Chennai to attend this event. After interacting with Mrs.Nirupa Shankar -TheDirector, Brigade Hospitality, I went to see the view of Bangalore from the 31st floor. OMG, it was awesome. Since I reached there at 6.00 PM I got to see the sunset. The golden rays of the sun had spread all over Bangalore, slowly the evening unfolded and thus illuminating Bangalore. It was just mesmerising view of the city.

Apart from this there is an exclusive area on top of the 31st floor where the helipad is present. There is just one table and 2 chairs meant for a couple. The view at night is amazing and it is extremely romantic. When I went there, I went into my world of imagination. I was imagining that I just get down from a helicopter and there Mr. M keeps waiting for me. He holds my right hand and I get down. We have a romantic candle light dinner there and share a few romantic moments…. wow, it is just awesome!

The cocktails, mocktails,wine and drinks just kept flowing on the table. Mr. Guruprashanth V.M, the Director – Bar Operations impressed us with his unusual concoctions and by shaking the cocktail mixer. The following are some of the cocktails and mocktails that were served.

We also had a food ingredients tasting competition. The ingredients were difficult to judge. My blogger friends Pari and Nandita won this contest.

The food was good. We were served with a menu that was specially crafted for us by Chef Zhang Hao. Since it was a Monday I had to try vegetarian dishes. But the non-vegetarian was very tempting with my friends telling me to try the chicken and fish dishes. 
Assorted Sushi Nigiri

Citrus Wasabi Prawn

Grilled Cottage Cheese With Tomato Compot

On the whole, it was a wonderful evening spent in the company of good food, good drinks and my talented blogger friends.
