A Bar with a view


The space boasts of a stunning location, delicious food and memorable tunes


Located on the eighth floor of the well-known Hotel Daspalla Hyderabad, Cara Cara, not linked to the
hotel, opens to a world of its own. Glitter from the city’s twinkling lights burst through the large glass
windows overlooking the city and spread across two floors of the culinary bar (including a rooftop dining
area). It adds to the relaxed vibe the DJ attempts to set by playing contemporary trending mixes.

As we walk in further, the place mesmerizes us. Opposite the bar is an artistic structure reminiscent of a
tree trunk that rises from the floor and melds seamlessly into the ceiling spreading out into wave-like
patterns. We silently take in the breath-taking view before going up to the bar to order two Cara Cara
signature cocktails, the Berry Bramble and the Nebraska.
While the mixologist prepares our drinks, we make ourselves comfortable for the evening. The cocktails
are keenly garnished and well presented. Both drinks can be described as being relatively heavy.
However, between the two, it is the fruity Berry Bramble, made of gin/vodka, redberry puree, blueberry
cordial, fresh lime juice, and apple juice, that tickles our taste buds the most.

Next, we ordered ourselves something to eat. Chef Jagmohan Rawat helped us choose from the amazing
array of dishes. For starters, we ordered Cara Cara’s signature sushi rolls dish, Spicy Rock Shrimp; the
popular South Korean Street snack, Dak Kkochi – char-grilled chicken skewers marinated with select
Korean condiments, leek, Gochugaru, and lime, and the delicious Galouti Puff, made of yam, mint goat
cheese, and puff pastry. The main course consisted of Mutton Sukka, a Kerela style mutton roast with
garlic, curry leaf and red chili; the ever- so-soft Malabar Paratha to go with the equally soft Paneer
Kasturi. For our sweet craving, we opted for the creamy Death By Chocolate dessert, a trio of white milk,
dark chocolate mousse alongside hazelnut ice cream.

Once satiated, you can let your hair down and get ready to party as Cara Cara presents a vibrant
nightlife. It involves DJ nights and live musical acts from performers like DJ Clement, DJ KAN-i, Band
Niraval, Band Aikyam, and a whole lot more that turn the rooftop area into an electrifying dance floor.
