Boozy Dal Makhani

Luxury is possessed by many but processed by a discerning few. Driven by this maxim, restaurateur Priyank Sukhija’s Lord of the Drinks Barrel House (LOTD) offers an ambrosial culinary experience with its Lord of the Rings inspired classic mise-en-scene.
Set on a 10,000 sq ft lounge in the plush microbrewery hub of Gurgaon’s Sector 29 market, this is the sixth in the series of LOTD outlets.

Festooned in grandeur and magnificence of a medieval epoch, LOTD spans across two spacious levels with two distinctively designed bars. The upper one is a casual dining space, while the second houses an upbeat music console and a squared jazzy bar in the centre. The classic artisanal and eccentric interiors include globe-sized wild woven chandeliers, a pop-coloured skull-themed decorative plate and the beautiful mirror installation as motifs that create warmth. The sofas, lounge chairs and aztec-styled hand-woven rugs balance out the rustic bar design.

The menu embodies a culinary world atlas with a range of global cuisines. Although the expansive menu can be puzzling, it offers a palate of mass accepted flavours and recipes. One can wisely do away with the predictable pastas and pizzas to explore the European and Asian kitchens along with the barrel signature dishes. The real winners were the Mushroom-Corn Tart Shell, Vodka and Chilli Spiked Prawns and the tangy Thyme Chicken.

The zesty Vodka Curry Aam Panna was rejuvenating, but the Smoked Sangria’s fumes overpowered the flavour. The Boozy Dal Makhni flamed with Jack Daniels is appreciable as an experiment but can disturb the taste buds with its slight bitterness. The Quattro Formaggio Cheese Soy Chaap tasted fine but was a little hard on the surface. The crispy Golden Fried Prawns were delicious.
In the microbrewery hub of Gurgaon, the restaurant has upscaled the brewery standards by introducing their in-house brew beer. The restaurant’s popular Butter Beer scores a 7 out of 10.
Visit the place to try an array of classic cocktails and a wide range of liqueur.
