Automobile themed pub
Torque is the pub of Green Park Hotel. It has been designed with automobile lovers in mind.
As you enter the pub, you see the front portion of a "Willys" jeep. To the right corner is the front portion of a BMW. The bar stools have been designed from automobile components and even the smoking area has seats and wall decor with car components. An automobile engine adorns another area of the pub.
IPL was being shown live on giant screens. I had a cranberry based mocktail along with 3 starters. The Bhutanese Vegetable Fry was the best. It was vegetable manchuria balls stir fried with capsicums, tomatoes and cashews. The Chicken Pepper Fry was crisply fried and tasty. I also tried a Chinese prawn based preparation.
Overall nice service, tasty food and I liked the concept (automobile) of the theme pub. Ask the waiter for a conducted tour of the pub, and look how they show you around.
It was my first visit to torque.it is a great place, the service is also good,but dey don serve hookah,or smoke in the pub.the service is good,the dj is also good but he does not play any bollywod tracks.its a great place to go after partys.
i think they should start smoking and hookah in the pub.
What was I thinking!!
is all I can say.
there were no ladies on a ladies night.
the place seemed like the Dev-D bar set come alive with a grumpy man(maybe he wanted to go out somewhere else and party. It WAS a saturday!) to welcome you.Dunno how the music (a IPL match was on and the team the DJ was supporting might be losing). I liked the decor grungy, garage look.Hence the name, I think. I guess it would be better with music and the dance lights on.
The drinks were ok and prompt.
Escape Revamped !!!!
While I am a regular to Greenpark hotels in my hometown chennai, especially its Escape Club, I make it a point to visit this place in hyderabad whenever i am here... One of the oldest pubs in the city, being Escape is now revamped as the "Torque" and I visited this place during their prelaunch run as well as last saturday late nite when they officially opened, one would be amazed to find out how the hotel had managed to turn around this place from the old style escape to a trendy setup with plush and comfortable lounges as well as some of the memoraphilia from the automobile world... Enter Torque and you are greeted by "Willys"... no its not a person but a old Jeep which has been modified with the seats intact... You could also lay your hands on a fully restored Isuzu engine complete with transmission too.... The menu has been revamped to accomodate some Thai dishes too though i havent tasted them... Yet ! Some of the other decors in the walls include sprockets, fan blades and Radiators.... apart from small models of many a cars...The bar side seats are very comfortable and they have seperate section for couples and this place can easily accomodate a crowd of 10 or more in a single table with their new style U shaped lounges which are more than comfortable to sit with....They had a famous band playing the other nite.....and the pricing is very moderate compared to other places i have been to in hyd... They also run an offer with carlsberg beer where you get every third carlsberg free... which makes a big bottle of carlsberg cost just over Rs. 160... The staff are very friendly and courteous as always and the place is open like 2 AM everyday which is a plus for late visitors... Overall "Torque" is must place to visit if you are in town....
