Used to be good
I was the regular visitor here. It was descent earlier like service,food was good.
Now a days its they refuse to serve you if you sit for more than 45 mins for hukkah and it takes forever to change the coal.
500Rs Cover charge on saturdays is too much for what the place offers.
Rates are reasonable, but they need to improve the service.
This Place is Shit
It's a pathetic place to be.
Drinks - Please don't order a cocktail. Yuk
Music is the worst part. I went there on a Saturday and and this guy (Who sings there every Saturday) was shouting(not singing) on top of his lungs. He was trying every genre of music right from Melody to Hard Rock to Sufi to Romantic and every thing was so BAD.
Neither classy nor dark
I heard a lot about Baner, and I thought it would be a good try to visit the place, drove almost for 20 Kms from hadapsar to reach CO2. The reasons were basic:
Heard a lot about its trash metal headbanging music
And its ample varieties of Hukka.
Though I am not a avid Hukka fan and I have loads of places nearby my place to explore that the reason was primarily to see a venture that is run by one of the guys from my state....
Well i was partially drenched in rains when i reached the place. The guy came up and asked me whether i had a booking. well a suggestion came to book prior before we come to CO2... it seemed paradoxical though as the place was half filled...Was allowed to enter though...
Music was trash and the crowd and the owners hardly feel playing classy rock(Forget Floyd), they feel Metallica is so yesterday. I asked for a Floyd and was kept waiting for more than 2 hours or so.
Service is pathetic... The wait is excruciating and the beer that you get is hardly chilled. Hukka was good ..perhaps the best I ever had(My knowledge and database is small though)...
Cant review the food as I hardly ate anything...All in all a good place for people who want to listen to music without a hole in their pockets(consider service of that level too... hardly leaves a mark)... If you spend 40 mins waiting for beer.. so you can easily spend 2 hours at the place...
Owners please stop walking with ciggarates.. looks cool but its hardly decent and please listen to customers who pay for services that you cater.
All in all if you are driving from Magarpatta or Kharadi to Baner to visit CO2... take my advice there are 1000 other places nearby to be explored ... as cheap and which caters much much better services...
Good Luck team at CO2.. I strongly believe that with the locational advantage and the fan following you have... services are certainly going to improve.. Only a Single Star from my side this tym round(and I am lnot critical freinds)
oh a place stil un defiend known for its brutal metal gigs clasy ambience and amazing music feels like an american night pub superb hookah and a place which can mould itself to any thing as per season gives an option of disc live performance in total a replica of an undefined entertainment hell
Hookah is DAMN GOOD!
I have never had hookah as good as this place offers. They have varieties to choose from which I havent come across at other places. The 1's those are my favourites are their premium hookahs, different bases n different flavours. I have to really say that having a hookah at CO2 with the ambiencethey have is an experience to remember. Especially the live band they have on weekends. I would request them to have an early booking system wherein I could book the tables a day before I visit. They take booking only on the same day after 1pm, however I appreciate the youngsters who run the place as they have managed something for us on the weekends too, when I have not booked in advance. They go out of their way to give customer service which is not possible to find if you wouldn't be a youngster to understand the mentality of the guest. I am an apostle of CO2.
It's is an amazing lounge for u to go with ur friends. I new to Pune and was finding a place at midnight with my friends from Mumbai n coincidentally landed at co2. An amazing grafitissed ambience. Has an American bar concept, with snooker n 9 ball tables with a sports bar which serves beer to scotch. Good music, with an in-house DJ GAGS. My friends were taken aback n were surprised to c a lounge like this in Pune n for sure when they come to Pune they will be meeting me at CO2.
1 of the coolest hangouts
It is actually the coolest hangout spot today in Pune. I believe the timings they have which is 1 in the afternoon until 5am in the morning is something u wouldn't find anywhere in Pune for a lounge.they have live band on Saturdays and the crowd really enjoys. The food is excellent and service is upto the Mark as per lounge standards. I believe the earlier reviews should be verified and then posted and shouldn't be refereed to.
The place is run by a few dudes and is highly unprofessional. I do not think they have any experience of service industry and treat customers like beggars. We had tried to make a booking but no one picked up the phone. They refused to honour the SnapDeal coupon owing to the internet problem. They did not even offer us to sit down and take another offer or just buy a beer anyway. All in all will never visit again and you should visit only if you want the most unpleasant experience.
CO2 - Live The Smoke (experience the hell)
Only thing you may like is the setting , dark, casual(in everything, food to service) with rock music
But everything else really sucks big time
I bought two coupons from snapdeal.com and went with my friend, the guys at Co2 asked had I done prior booking, which I had done by calling at day time but unfortunately they didn't have my name, but they accepted one coupon after sometime.
Most pathetic service I have seen in my life, instead of professional waiters they have hired two guys who are not sufficient to cater to all the crowd, owner guys themselves try to go asking around with ciggerrete in hand which may be be cool, but doesn't serve the purpose.
We ordered beer and it took around 40 minutes for beer to come as if it was being brewed, and no body contacted us meanwhile, we tried to tell waiter 3 times and every time he told us to wait 5 mins, so we went to the counter and there we were told that they are out of the beer, they did not bother to tell that earlier or ask to get some alternate drink
Food order also took lots of time, see the next section to know why
They don't even cook their food, I think they have heard about outsourcing and hence outsourcing the orders to near by restaurant so that makes order to reach your table doubly slow and when it reaches it is cold, may be due to harsh Pune winter, in summer it would be warm
Though taste wise it was ok, as ok as it can be for cold food.
hukka was good but again they needed to be reminded twice before Hukka reached our table.
Though service was bad I was still ready to use my second coupon but my friend was in no mood to waste more time here, so we left the place and went to a better traditional place where service is better.
As I had another snapdeal.com coupon with me I had to use it :(, called 5 time between 1.30 PM to 3 PM but no body picked the phone, so emailed them but never got a reply back.
Anyway went with my another friend in evening, but this time Co2 exceeded my expectation.
First Co2 guy insisted that why i did not do prior booking (though all seats were empty), when I told him I called 5 times and also emailed, he insisted that it can't happen that no body picked the phone, as if i was lying and said they don't check emails. cool!
Then he refused to accept the coupon, instead of treating me like a customer they treated me like a beggar asking for free food. I was bending over the counter to hear the owner guy who was whispering something about why they can't accept the coupon, he did not bother to stand up and show some courtesy or to say that sorry they can't accept the coupon.
He first said this is snapdeal mistake they have distributed more coupons than they asked for, when I talked something about customer service and Co2 brand, he pretended to do something on phone and then said snapdeal site is down and hence they can't check if my coupon is valid.
When my friend said that he can access the site on his galaxy-s, they said their site is different one. I told him about the customer service number on the coupon, he said that is for you guys not for us.
We thought that was enough wasted time with the stubborn guys who don't know who to treat guests , at-least he could have asked us to sit or have another order.
Whatever we left the place and went to nearby 'The great punjab' which though bit costly have the best food and promptest service, may be Co2 guys should get some training there.
