After the dryness that has overshadowed the ‘City Beautiful’, its quite hard to find places to enjoy a great weekend. Recently, some new places were opened in Sector 26 of Chandigarh with an aim to get high publicity and a large crowd as this sector is known to be the ‘ Hub of Nightlife’ but unfortunately couldn’t achieve it due to the recent liquor ban. Places like MOBE (Ministry of Bar Exchange), The Brew Estate (Sec 26&35), The Great Bear, Satva , Peddlers (Sec 26&35 ), Buzz (Sec 17) etc. are facing huge losses due to liquor ban. Usually, these places used to remained crowded but there is hardly anyone due to the recent Supreme Court Order.
This ban has not only affected the clubs but also the hookah bars. Places like Cowboy Rodeo, The Boombox Cafe, The Purple frog etc. were inaugurated recently but were shut down after the orders from the Supreme Court.
It has been reported that all the owners of these clubs have formed a union with a fear of facing a huge loss in their businesses. A meeting will be held on 6th April, 2017 to discuss this liquor ban which may even lead to a protest.
But you need not worry as here we are listing the places mentioned below where liquor is still available-
