Baby, Nevermind, nevermind, nevermind, nevermind

Pub, Bar, DJ, Party , Bangalore PartiesNevermind, the first thing that comes to my mind or wondering what that title is all about? Check this iconic BMW Series 3 TVC, with Dennis Lloyd’s ‘Nevermind’ score playing in the background.(Heres the link if you haven’t watched this yet) And why do I mention this? Nevermind, the place has a very similar vibe. Futuristic and elegant interiors and Rohit Barker spinning some excellent tracks at the DJ Console, this is one of my favorite places in Indira Nagar, and I haven’t even come to the food yet! Nevermind completed a year of running a few days back and they have a new revamped menu, which still has some of the crowd favs from the old menu. Here are some glimpses from the fabulous new menu:

Gin Cocktail


These aren’t the sugary, syrup-loaded cocktails that you would find in most places. The cocktail menu here is driven by ingredients, and good ones at that! Their signature ones are divided into 3 carefully-crafted categories, here are my picks from each of these sections

Farm to Glass(Core ingredient is a fruit or a vegetable)

Fine Revelry: This gin cocktail had cucumber, tonic, a rose-sour made in-house. The freshness of cucumber, the rather unusual combination of a sour-rose syrup which gave this beautiful, floral edge and a tonic to balance it out. Simple, elegant and refreshing!

Mamacita: This cocktail is an attention grabber for sure. A lovely almost transparent green colour, another gin-based cocktail, this has seasonal bell peppers, coriander, lime juice, sparkling water and a thin layer of whipped cream. A very modern cocktail, the bell peppers add an interesting dimension to an already interesting cocktail. Loved it!

Botanical Garden(Edible Flowers or Leaves)

Lady Rose: A vodka-based cocktail with rose syrup, rose tea infused vodka(yeah, no kidding!), lime juice and egg whites. The end result? Something even the Russians have not done with their Vodka, a stunning floral cocktail topped with a egg-white foam to give it more body. Excellent!

Spices & Herbs

Empress Kiss: If ever there was a cocktail to simulate a kiss, this would be it, honestly! Rosemary-infused gin, lime, triple sec and orange juice and egg white. Beautifully balanced, with the sourness of orange and lime balanced by the piney rosemary, this could even be an aperitif! I could have this all day long, it is that good! 

Here are my recommendations from their menu:

Brie Tempura
Brie Tempura: Nutty and earthy brie coated in a tempura batter and fried to perfection, this is a delightful way to start the meal here, also a good accompaniment to their cocktails!

Beef & Jalapeno Dumpling: Pan-Asian food has always been Nevermind’s strong suit, and this dumpling just goes to show how good their food this. Translucent covering and a beautifully cooked filling of minced beef and spicy jalapenos made sure that we went back for more.

Bacon, Candied Bacon, Donut BurgerThe B&B Burger: Yes, the bun is actually a donut bun, and it was a delightful addition to this fabulous double bacon burger. So this was Candied bacon, beef patty, glazed doughnut bun, crunchy peanut butter, Chili lime mayo. Excellent stuff!

Pan Seared Red Snapper: Fish and Chimichurri sauce always go great together, and in this case, the flavours were heightened with the addition of a orange and fennel salad, and a beautifully flashed-fried snapper with an ultra-crispy skin. Needless to say, the chimichurri was on point and delicious!

Praline, Chocolate CakeCoastal Prawn Curry : Ah, with all the fancy stuff coming in, a steaming bowl of this beautiful prawn curry with steamed rice was a welcome change. Comfort food at its finest!


Tall, Dark & Crunchy: Beautiful textures of milk and dark chocolate with the reassuring crunch of roasted cashews and a sprinkling of cashew praline dust for good measure.

Torched Meringues
Lemon Tart: Lemon Tart, Torched Meringues and a buttery, short crust arch to seal the deal. This was as delicious as it looked, or even more!

Nevermind - Bar & Social Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - ZomatoVerdict: Be it a romantic outing, an evening of partying with friends or just an afternoon of sipping some brilliant cocktails while enjoying some lip-smacking food, I cannot recommend this place enough!
