Cocktails and Friends - Masterclass at "The Long Bar"






The culinary experience at Hyatt Regency Gurgaon is as unique as it is authentic. This five star hotel houses distinguished restaurants and bars each styled and designed keeping in mind the taste of a seasoned business traveller providing exceptional food and beverage offerings.  “The Long Bar” as they call it is perhaps the longest bar in town at 60 ft . The counter horizontally runs from one end to the other covering the whole world as in the “World of Liquor”. 

Roger Wright, GM, Hyatt Regency, Gurgaon has always been kind enough to greet us most hospitably whenever, I have been here. Today was no special though. He has always been quite confident about his hotel and its offerings, and why not? Hyatt Regency, Gurgaon is indeed one of the best hotels in this whole vicinity.


We, as Bloggers and Travel Writers were invited for a Cocktail Masterclass cum mixing session to this much coveted place. The entry to the bar runs thru a full glass floor which has pebbles and wine bottles on either side and looks amazing. At 60 feet long, The Long Bar is stylish and intimate. With tastefully done interiors and lip smacking snacks, this is going to be the spot for who’s who of Delhi / NCR and discerning travelers from all over,” Roger told us.

The session was started with the introduction of the Bar Staff and the Main Bar Mixologist, Mr. Prasoon Punnu. He narrated us the general history of the cocktail mixing and their origins. Then, he with his bar men initiated the session by making  5 cocktails one after the other. The cocktails being, Negroni, Manhattan, Fire Fly, Margharita and Legacy.

What made the session interesting was the beautiful presentation of an assortment of appetizers or tapas prepared from the freshly available ingredients, made under the most talented, Executive Chef Liam Crotty, and managed effectively by its talented Assistant Director, F&B, Supreet Roy. 

We , loved all the offerings as they were very well made and presented ‘Tempura Mahi Roll, ‘Bruchetta: Tomato, Basil, Mushroom and Parmesan’, ‘Lamb Sheekh Kebab’; and ‘Aloo Corn ki Seekh’. 


 Some of our Blogger friends also tried their hands on, cocktails mixing. We thoroughly enjoyed this session.  After this, We all moved for a grand Lunch at the Kitchen District, the muti-cuisine haven at the hotel which offers 5 live kitchens from different parts of the world. 

Interaction with the hotel staff, viz the GM, the Marketing guys , the F&B guys and so on was really an eye opener. It really helped us all to know and understand the property in general and its offerings better.
