S'cruz was in desperate need for a truly entertaining pub, or any pub for that matter. Enter Three Wise Men - just what the doc ordered. So if your idea for a truly fun weekend is singing along with slightly inebriated locals shaking a leg near the table besides you, drinking a few beers or the ol' rum and coke while munching on the usual pub fare of potato wedges, fish and chips & chicken wings, head on here!
The ambiance is what you'd generally expect from a pub - dim lights, laminated wooden counter, alcohol logos scattered around the walls, with the large screen LCD showing you the latest ESPN has to offer (with the IPL season on, this could be fun). The perplexing thing is why the owners choose to put up antique looking pictures with gold colored frames on the ceiling? Perhaps, they must have spared a thought for that drunk friend of yours who likes to hit the floor (literally) after a few shots too many.
The drinks menu, is once again nothing spectacular - but its good. No special in-house cocktails or fine wines. However one can always order the familiar screwdrivers, mojitos, LIITs and much more. The long island (Rs. 395) we ordered was nice and stiff. It was good to know that the wise men were free with their alcohol. Beer choice ranges from hoegaarden (Rs 350/ pint) to Schneider Weisse and from Stella to our very own King Fisher (Rs. 165/ pint). They have sangrias too, which I suppose are around Rs. 400. Their food menu, apart from the bar staples do contain a few exotic dishes such as falafel and tempura. Haven't tried 'em out yet, will probably do so on my next visit.
The place gets really crowded on the weekends and you'll find yourself waiting for a table if you choose to arrive post 8.30pm. You have to keep shouting over the crowd to get the waiter's attention. Once you grab his attention, you have to shout even louder to get your order across to him. It's a hit and miss as far as service is concerned. Sometimes you get your order in time, and sometimes you don't get it at all unless you remind the overworked staff. Also, remember to check your bill; On 2 occasions I was charged extra. However, the staff is quick to accept this and get you a fresh bill soon.
The music in nice. The playlist is an eclectic collection of songs which include the likes of U2 and Metallica followed by Adele, Madonna and Abba. Sprinkled in between are the US top charts. So it probably has something for you to enjoy too.
All in all, this is a great place to hang around, meet up with friends and just generally have a good time without going all the way to either Bandra or Andheri. So come on in, grab a seat and enjoy!
