Juhu’s most loved and then hated resto-bar Villa 69 shut down last year and gave birth to A New Bar Called Life
A Bar Called Life, is a sprawling new space serving innovative cocktails and modern Indian cuisine, in Juhu. LIFE is the third establishment launched by Aallia Hospitality Pvt. Ltd., an organization catering to the city’s discerning patrons through a series of stylish bars and restaurants.
This latest entrant to Juhu’s nightlife scene features modern Indian fare, great space, fun cocktails with an element of nostalgia. The food menu, conceptualized by Executive Chef Amninder Sandhu, offers a range of wholesome, hearty finger foods, perfect for snacking on while enjoying the extensive cocktail menu. Chef has been inspired by ‘lost recipes,’ drawing on techniques and preparation methods passed down through generations. A selection of vegetarian and non-vegetarian items, featuring seasonal ingredients, will keep diners satiated. Presentation is key also for the food; every dish is a visual delight, appealing to each diner’s sense of fun and whimsy. Think Popping Tarbooza, Karare Aloo, Moon dal stuufed in a Khari to uniquely plated mains liked Ambarsarai Chole Kulche, Kaali Dal and Sarro Da Saag Hor Kuddu. We are sure to get the Pindwalla feeling if you know what we mean.
Chef Sandhu is the proud recipient of the ‘Best Lady Chef’ award at the National Tourism Awards 2014-15. She was most recently Chef-in-charge at Taj Lands End, Mumbai. Her valuable years spent at the hotel’s popular Masala Bay restaurant resulted in learnings that allow her to revive authentic, intense and subtle flavours in every dish she prepares. Chef Sandhu’s cooking style reflects a deep understanding of regional Indian influences, which are unified in her recipes and presentation alike.
