With bottomless pitchers, shots at half prices after every 45 minutes, a selection of spirits on special price, Monkey Bar, the pan-Indian gastro-pub, wants Indian football fans to be a sport and cheer for the nations who have made it to the final round of the World Cup in Russia. Called ‘Halftime’, their special promotion too lasts for the entire duration of the championship, from June 14 to July 15 at their outlets in Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore and Kolkata. You may choose to sit with like-minded team supporters – as the space will be divided into two sides – and allow you to catch the action on giant screens.

The ‘Halftime’ special menu includes snacks from around the world such as Salty Fingers – the classic English batter fried fish and chips or Football Farsan – a trio of munchies including curry and parmesan popcorn, chili and rosemary coated peanuts, and foxnuts in honey and togarashi, or Chicken Dip and Corn Chips. You can also choose from Frickles – deep fried pickled cucumber, carrot and daikon radish with mint cream or a portion of Mexican Wave – soft flour tortilla with honey and chipotle chicken served with pico de gallo, cheddar cheese and sour cream. The Mini Bunny Chow- is restaurant’s twist to the traditional South African snack of a bread bowl and curried chicken. The Kahn’s Hot Dog – chicken or pork sausages in a hot dog bun with mustard, ketchup, sauerkraut, charred pepper sauce, sweet pickle relish and more – is Monkey Bar’s tribute to the Germans. The legends of the game are honoured with No.10 – chili pork belly toasted in roasted garlic, chili and shallots.
Small Plates start from ₹220 per plate + taxes and drinks 220 ++ onwards.
