I loved Kue bar..And looking forward to going and dancing again....
Most Happening Place!
Went with a friend to chill out after hours! Even just the ambience can really make you forget all your worries and the music yesterday was just mind blowing. They were playing house n commercial music. Amazzzing Man!!!!! This place never disappoints!
Saturday Nights at KUE Bar are just too good! The ambiance is superb. Staff is polite and very hospitable. The DJ was playing some great House Music! He had the crowd eating out of his hands! The place was packed. Crowd is pretty classy!! Drinks were great and reasonably priced! I know I'm going to be a regular soon! B-)
Great Ambiance. Pathetic Service
For celebrating one of my wife's friends birthdays we decided to go to Kue Bar situated inside the Westin hotel at Koregaon Park. Firstly the ambiance is amazing! A beautiful view with an infinity waterfall on one side of the outdoor section. They also have a vibrant indoor section however the outside is where this bar stands out, they have high cocktail tables as well as bean bags for sitting, very chique! The music too is excellent, they played hard and soft rock that I loved and so did my compatriots.
Sadly that is all that is good about this place.
We ordered two beers and fresh lime water sweet and salty which took 30 minutes, I understand it was a Saturday night and they were busy, however it should not take that long in fact beers are the first things bartenders give as they are a no nonsense drink.
Then began the ordeal with the fresh lime water, first it came with soda, so we sent it back, next the same as a fresh lime soda sweet and salty so we sent it back again, the third time it came back with water however no sugar or salt! The fourth time it came back only salty, finally my wife went to the manager and complained that is when it came back correctly!!! The entire ordeal took 45 to 50 minutes!!!
The portion size of the starters too were not substantial (we were told they would be), I know it is a five star hotel but I am not paying Rs. 800 for peanuts!!!
I like the view, like the fact that they give some complimentary bar munchies, but I am not going back there because they can not get their service together,!!! I am not paying such exorbitant prices for a bloody view!!!
Have been to KUE twice with my friends. No doubt an awesome place but when we went last week we were not allowed inside as we were three stags. We requested that we be allowed to go in and that we have come all the way from Gujarat but the manager was so rude to us, as if we were mawalis. If KUE Management is reading this, would like to tell you guys that the salary you must be paying to your manager, we have spend double of that at your KUE bar before. You guys are awful.

Thank you for posting your review.
We truly appreciate your feedback.
We look forward to showcasing improvements on your next visit.
I am not really a huge fan of these five star lounged and discs as in my opinion they are just waste of money. But since my friends insisted on visiting it I just went along. We went on a Wednesday which was a ladies night. We started off with some free vodka shots. Initially they serve them neat but as you go ordering they kinda try to convince you to try the flavored ones. Which obviously are really saddd! The ambiance of the lounge is pretty nice with red lights that gives a very loungy effect the whole place. You walk further and that's when you come to the dance floor. Which was a total turn off. The look is so shady that you don't even feel like being there for more than 10 minutes. The music is ok not so great they way people say.
Basically if you just want to spend money at an average place, KUE bar is the place.

Buzz In Town!!! Keep Rocking
Looking to hear some great l music, look nowhere else and head straight to KUE BAR.been there many times and haven't been disappointed with any aspect of this wonderful club. The service, food, drinks(variety and mixing) is all top notch. They invite the best performers of the world so there is nothing to complain about the performances.,music is for everyone( if you willing to pay though ;) ). Anyways its worth every penny !! live gigs are pretty entertaining. I liked the cocktails there and would love to go back again N Again soon. Overall ambiance is nice ... Buzz in Town .....Keep Rocking KUE ..

I am pleased to know that you have carried back fond memories of your time at Kue Bar.
Looking forward to your next visit.
Me and my friends had been here to celebrate my birthday. Since it was in Westin i was pretty sure that, this place will live upto my expectations of good discotheque and not like just any other.
Couples entry were charged 1000 (cover charge included). As you enter, the first section is the open air resto with tables laid out. We were like why sit in open air and delay the party, lets hit the bar straight. As you move inside the disc, you will find a big dance floor with bar in the middle, DJ set on the extreme right side top, sofas laid out on the left side of the area. I was sure we were in here something big than just party.
The music was really good with great mixes. Even though it was crowded, you can still find place to dance and groove without any issues. The booze was chilled which was good on their part. The only thing which they should improve is the attendants on the Bar area. Only 3 attendants will not suffice the crowds demands. The starters are overly priced and do no justice to the taste or the quantity. Just plain, normal starters with high price was really disappointing.
As the clock struck 12, my friends had made arrangements for the cake. To my surprise, the cake was super chilled.
Overall, the experience was really good.
I went to Kue bar on Wednesday, the ladies nyt with my girlriends...Reached there by 9-30pm, but the free drinks started at 10-30pm... The tym we entered, the whole place was empty!! The starters are highly overpriced and not worth it!! The ppl start cmn to the club after 10-30pm...The free shots are highly diluted...u feel more ly u r drinkin lime water with a little bitter taste..The waiter asks u 2 w8 for half more hour to have next round of shots if u already had 1-2 rounds...awful service and the music is the worst!! The management shud hire a b8r dj and a b8r chef coz the starters r no b8r than the roadsyd chat walla!! Very bad experience...wont advice ne1 to go there!!
Nice Place to hangout
Availed the opportunity to explore KUE Bar through VH1 Pub crawl,which means free entry and couple of free drinks.All thanks to my friend and colleague who is very active member on burp.
The most that I loved about this place was the awesome music being played and the dance floor was quite large as compared to some other places I have seen.The guys at the bar were very courteous and prompt in serving the request.The music at "The One" Lounge as been the best experience for me before I visited KUE Bar,but I would rate it better than One Lounge. Would definitely love to visit again.
High Expectations... awful service and standards
Been here to try this place out with my fiancee and friends. Lot of fuss about seat reservation with 20k structure. I mean come on, have been to the most expensive and happening clubs in the country and outside India; but Westin should understand this ain't Vegas baby! . Servings were awfully minimal and badly put. The guy who was looking after guests didn't had any clue and for everything went to the Manager and at one point even tried bargaining on their 20k table book structure for 15k :) . The only reason i was there - Absinth. Complete let down and even though the place is open till wee hours, we decided its better off for those people who dont mind pathetic service and yuckish music sets. I mean cmon who listens to house trance on Fridays?? Decor was well put, but that was the only saving grace. Although crowd was on a frenzy for entry, it aint the place for a 2nd visit. I have been to clubs in Vegas, Miami, Mumbai but Kue is a let down. Improve your service and please don't think every guy who walks in owns a BMW. By the way i got to know that Akon show was also cancelled here at Westin. Opening night at Kue saw some celebs as guests and may be thats why Pune party scene is solely dependent on Mi-A-Mi, Area51 and private gigs. Lastly Kue Bar is definitely NO Q-Ba (phonetic resemblance). Trust me i had a really bad experience and hence the sentiments.
take a kue, paint the town RED
In some ways i think Pune has finally arrived, kue with its chic understated elegance, demands one to be dressed to the nines and party long and hard.
the decor is modern and inviting, with ample seating,the red light boxes add the drama, and i liked the fact that it was partly open to air, which added yet another dimension.the dance floor inside is also the biggest i have seen though the decor..... was kinda mismatched to the outside.
the bar is the highlight , it looks like every other but the drinks they serve are amazing, the long island was LOOONG, and they had a wide range of cocktails, using sparkling wines , absinthe etc which i haven't seen else where.
the music was average, pop music ruled, basically it was a crowd pleaser,
overall it was a gr8 partying experience, its open till late( we left at 3), the crowd is fantastic, celebrity viewing a possibility.
@ 1000 Rs a person its kinda steep , but the entire experience is worth it and its got full cover.
can't wait to go back, c u there :)
Here, Smoke This Cuban
Punes not-so-famous night scene just picked up pace with the launch of KUE Bar. Deriving from the raw passion and unmatched warmth of the Cuban and Latino culture, KUE Bar was conceptualized as a place to celebrate life and have fun.
The lounge is alfresco with a stunningly high roof and open sides. Plush leather seats and discrete tables give large groups the chance to indulge in conversation, and low lighting provides the required privacy for couples. The music is loud enough to let you groove to the beat, but soft enough to not stymie conversation. The 20 foot bar and the faddish soundtracks reach out to the young demographic, while the culinary theater will bring in the food aficionados.The open sides may give rain a chance to enter the lounge and mess with your night.
Lasers and club lights set up an atmosphere that thrives on the energy of dancers partying the night away. Semi-private seating inside the dancing area has been provided so you can sit down and drink up before hitting the floor again.
A wooden cabinet filled with cigars is the center of attraction, and patrons can purchase a cigar and smoke at leisure.
KUE Bar aims to blow you away in this department with a multitude of cocktails and signatures. Flaming cocktails like the Flying Vixen, Flaming Venom, Absinthe Fountain (Warning: You may see fairies where there are none) and Venga Girls, and the signatures Kuebano and Hemingway, are the want of the many here.
The Bar serves Latin and Asian selections. The lounge will serve complete meals so that party-goers can come and enjoy good food before getting jiggy with it. Chef Santosh Jori promises excellent food, and so far we have no reason to doubt him. The honey chili potatoes, chicken and vegetarian pita pockets, beer dunken prawns (Beer!), chicken saute and mutton seekh were impeccably made and served hot on trays with neon lights by happy, well-informed waiters.
