The Westin Pune Koregaon Park has revamped its bar Mix@36 and has now given it a Retro theme. The Guide drops by to experience the place
Mix@36 attracts the upwardly clout of people with the ideal blend of luxurious unwinding and a soothing ambience. It also helps turn back time and bring alive the yesteryears — swinging 60s, the hippie 70s and the disco 80s under one roof.
The stylish lounge overlooks the Mula-Mutha River and plays Retro music taking you down nostalgia lane. The ambience includes standing tables, cushy sofas to enjoy an informal chat, a snooker table and open-air seating.
Talking on the revamping of Mix@36, Anuraag Bhatnagar, General Manager, The Westin Pune Koregaon Park, said, “The party scene in Pune has grown tremendously over the last few years and what’s amazing is that it’s not one genre that keeps the buzz alive.
It’s a beautiful amalgamation of genres from Rock to Pop to Lounge, Jazz and Retro which finds appeal. We are proud to announce the revamping and unveiling of Mix@36 as a Retro lounge”.
Chef Santosh Jori pointed out that they have cocktails and starters that go with the theme. “I am sure that people who come here will enjoy it a lot. There will be some items for main course but we have stressed more on the starters and drinks.”
Mix@36 gives Retro music lovers a reason to party even harder. The Lounge offers a provocative mix of styles, tempos and eras throwing together a number of influences to produce an eclectic mix of sounds. The gleaming blue lights lends a cool contemporary look to the inside section, providing a majestic ambience of the lounge where one can enjoy music and groove through the night.
The lounge also offers hors ‘d oeuvres or quick finger foods with an Oriental twist. Live counters on the open air bar deck also add extra spunk in the ambience.
