Nowadays, more and more things are just getting manufacture in bulk. As creating or perhaps crafting is more detail and skilful job. Which further requires more time and efforts and people prefer easy and quick fixes. Contrary to this, Craftbar BKC is authentically twisted, located at Kalanagar, just about 2 km away from Bandra station.

The heart and soul of Sagar Chakraborty, who has worked at various prestigious restaurants namely Copper Chimney, Indigo, China Garden, Olive and Restaurant 5 have bought his collective experience at Craftbar BKC to give us the best and most handcrafted experience.
The new age gastro bar has almost everything crafted, from the wall hanging art to wall décor, even the lamp covers, and they also have beautiful hand-painted bottles at the bar counter which draws inspiration from all almost all the States of India.
The bar is right at the center, to tempt you to try anything under the sun.
The rustic design and contemporary ambience just set the mood right. They even grow a lot of plants like basil, thyme, etc right at the sides of the entrance that are used as garnishing and otherwise.
From the bar section we tried; PUC (Pollution Under Control):
The cocktail is a mix of regular pomegranate and thyme smoke. (The thyme is used over a smoke machine to give the smoky taste and feel. It’s an art using an in-house smoke machine) with Vodka. The thyme smoke gives a strong Thyme flavour, it’s unique and different and has a strong pungent aroma.
Their very own version of the IPL, it’s a perfect combination of Californian grapes, fresh mint, Vodka, top up with Sparkling Wine.
From the Gola Barood section we have got ‘Tera kya Hoga Khaliya’:
It’s the traditional Kala Khatta drink whose base is of Vodka. The one that would remind us of all the gola’s we have had in our childhood, this is with a little high 😉
Again a unique and different concept of serving seasonal fruits. In our case, it’s Kiwi that is infuse in Vodka for almost a day and then coat in dark chocolate. Now, who can say no to Vodka based Lolly pops?
Last from the bar menu is Don’t Angry Me:
In a Chocolate shot glass, you’re serving coffee beans with dark rum. The glass is a complete mould of ice. The taste and presentation truly call for a try. Highly recommended!
Now coming down to food, Pav Bhaji Bruschetta (Veg):
The buttery bread are finely cover with authentically cook Pav bhaji, perfectly smash and cover with a layer of cheese. Absolutely tasty and delicious, eat before it gets cold is a must here.
The stuffing of the momos is marinated in Tandoori masala and authentically cook in clay oven. The Momos are not the regular size they are a little bigger and tastier.
From their Roadies section we tried Litti Chokha:
Directly from the states of Bihar, taste the authentic Litti served on a live coal, along with authentic ghee and Chokha, green spicy chutney. So if you want to try the famous dish you now know where to head next.
SolKadi Shots with Prawn Golguppa:
The famous Konkani curry with prawn stuff Golguppa. Totally try it for its uniqueness and for a whole different experience.
Our very own famous Vada Pav comes as a slider burger for better grip and taste. The pav is a grill and serves with green chutney, a nice twist to the famous food of Aam Aadmi.
From the desserts section we tried English Vinglish:
Again a combination so rare, that you would hardly see. The freshly baked brownie is served with delicious and perfectly cook Gajar ka Halwa. The unique and outstanding combination is worth trying for sure.
