Bengaluru welcomes Underdoggs Sports Bar

South Bangalore ushers in an uber cool hangout which is in a league of its own! I quite like the catchy name as I can relate to totally. It kind of reminds me of the time in school when we rose from being the underdogs and beat the shit out of every other team on our way to become the maestros in our part of the world. And I believe that's precisely what the guys behind Underdoggs Sports Bar had in mind when they started this venture and have now carved a place for themselves beating all odds. After successfully ruling Delhi, Gurgaon and Chandigarh, Underdoggs sports bar enters Bengaluru.

It's probably the best sports bar I have visited till date. One can feel the adrenaline rush the moment you enter in. The sporty wall graphics, the helmet and skateboard lights, clever use of the sporting memorabilia, those giant awe inspiring posters of your favourite sporting icons and historical sporting events are sure to give you goosebumps! The 30+ large HD TVs, the giant projectors and a smartly designed place ensures that every seat is the best seat in the house and that no one misses out on live sporting action, sports highlights, bloopers or music videos that are being showcased.




And not just the sporting action, there are games of all types that one can indulge in. There are 7 pristine pool tables, dart boards, foosball, carom, table tennis, X box Kinect, custom beer pong tables and a host board games to ensure that everyone has a good time. Underdoggs is a place where you can watch sports, play fun games with your family, friends or team, take part in drinking game tournaments, try out their specially curated signature sporty cocktails and their fabulous food or just come here to unwind!






The evening started with their signature Flaming Hot Shots, which is an in-house Cinnamon infused Whiskey creation. We were told it's a crowd favourite and now I know exactly why. "It burns like hell but tastes like heaven" - as one of us aptly put it! Next up was my favourite beverage., here comes the beer - served in attractive sporty Beer tubes topped with a flashy siren that looks super awesome on the table.

And coming to food, one must definitely try the following -

1. Underdoggs signature chicken wings that are served either char grilled or fried. They come with 14 mouthwatering signature sauces - Spicy honey garlic, Desi masala, Butter chicken, Tandoori, Mango habenero, Garlic parmesan, Honey barbecue, Barbecue, Sweet chili ginger, Cajun alfredo, Harissa & the house special medium hot, hot & suicide. My top picks from the chicken wings were the Desi Masala, Butter Chicken, Cajun Alfredo, Spicy Harissa and Garlic Parmesan.

2. Underdoggs Signature Naan Rolls - this one here is quite a novelty, an Indo-mex. You can pick from either regular, butter or garlic naan and team it up with hot Indian curries and eat them like a taco! There are 4 veg & 4 non veg varieties to choose from - Murg Rarah, Murg Haleem, Paneer Kulchan, Tawa Wali Subji, Nihari Ghost, Diwani Veg Handi, Gulmoher Murg Nawabi & Veg Haleem.

We tried out quite a few of their signature concoctions and paired them with the yummy chicken wings. The top picks from the mocktails was the Banana Murray. Among cocktails we liked Watermelon Smash, Pineapple JalapeƱo Margarita and Smoked Rosemary and Whisky.

Underdoggs Sports Bar is everything they claim to be and beyond! It's not a destination that South Bangalore (SoBa) wants, it's a place that SoBa needs! It's a big thumbs up from me!! Go check out the place soon and make a sporty evening out of it!
