Located at the Taj Palace Hotel, The Blue Bar is adjacent to the famous Vietnamese restaurant, The Blue Ginger. The Blue Bar, unlike its name, has nothing blue about it. The ambience of the place draws you and soaks you in its energy. The bar is very elegantly done up, with chic interiors and bright purple lighting. The place has both inside and outside seating areas. If you prefer to have your drink standing, you can enjoy it by the long bar while admiring the finest range of liquor, or you can enjoy sipping your drink on the comfortable couches. The inside section has a DJ console placed at the right height for playing house music. The outside has an alfresco seating area, providing a view of the lawn, and a pool for all those who just want to enjoy a conversation. One must try The Blue Bar’s signature cocktails, prepared by bartender Nicholas Hawkins, such as Leftfield which has Tanqueray gin and aged balsamic vinegar with elderflower cordial. If you are experimental enough, you should try Open Sesame, a combination of sesame seeds muddled with vanilla sugar, honey and fresh pineapple, shaken with Makers Mark bourbon. Nick also provides some unique flavors with his Cigar Infused Woodfords Reserve Manhattan. If you want to hit the weekend with the right mood, try visiting The Blue Bar.
