Yesterday I had been to a bowling bar along with an office colleague and the experience was simply mind blowing. Blues in Amby Mall is a wonderful, wonderful place and if anyone happens to visit Gurgaon do drop in there. It is a state of the art facility with bowling alleys on both sides of the large hall and a bar in the middle, with dimly lit décor giving it company. I am not much of a bowling enthusiast myself but could not turn down when asked out, more so as I did not have anything to do on a holiday. We played two rounds, both I lost; nonetheless I enjoyed the experience to the hilt. What makes Blues special is the entire get-up, inside there are small enclosures where you can have your private talks along with drinks and sometimes also do your private thing if you have willing company. There is a tattoo room, karaoke bar, lounge and a separate smoking room, all done in tasteful décor
When we came out of Blues we found a new Golf restaurant outside. On enquiry we were shown inside the huge complex which consisted of shopping stuff like tees and shorts, golf equipments for display and sale, eating place with accompanying lounge; and a simulated golf course! The virtual golf course was divided into different enclosures; one had to take shots with a golf stick in front of those screens which simulated an entire golf course experience. If that was enough, there was also a separate Cigar bar where only Cigars can be smoked and select single malts are served. Needless to say the interiors were done tastefully and the woody ambience reeked of vintage cigars. Adjacent there was a conference room and other business room facilities, all on the top floor of a mall!
I have heard there is also a beer island somewhere in this mall, will try for sure next time
Later I and my friend went to the floor below for lunch but the choices available made it difficult to choose from. There were simply too many outlets, more than we could take in and some of the brands were unheard of before. Also lined up on that floor were specialty restaurants with designer interiors and a food court where street foods from all parts of world are available, I guess this variety may not be easily available even abroad.
I have heard Amby Mall will soon become as big as Mall of Emirate in Dubai, only the broken roads of Gurgaon will discourage visitors
