10 Cafés & Bars In Pune That Won't Burn A Hole In Your Pocket

Posted at February 3rd, 2017 | by Yash Vikram Singh | in

Maybe not through out the month but every now and then a lot of us are running a little low on cashish. As Pune is already flushed with students and young professionals, that’s probably the perfect demographic for this. Check out these budget-bars in Pune.

1000 Oaks

1000 Oaks has been around for a long time in Pune. It is like a New York watering hole where regulars catch a glass of their desired drink sliding across the counter without even saying a word. It has a doddery vibe to go along with and needless to say it’s mucho barato.

Location: 2417 East Street, near HDFC Bank, Camp, Pune

Toons- The Cafe Down Under

An underground cafe almost impossible to locate, Toons has that low key vibe where you can just sit back and chill with your buddies and enjoy a football match. You could get a pint for 130 only! They focus on classic rock so if you’re tired of hearing dance music everywhere, try this.

Location: 26, Wonderland Basement, 7 MG Road, Camp Area, Pune


The High Spirits Cafe

Definitely under the bracket of ever so crowded and lively places, High Spirits is a place where you can kick it without any acuity around you. As you’d have it, the booze is cheap and food is fantastic. They also have a buffet, brunch with some sangria is recommended.

Location: 35A/1, North Main Road, Koregaon Park, Pune


Hidden Place- The Hangout

If you had a guess, this place is sort of hidden. Which actually doesn’t help with it attracting less crowd. It has just opened up and it’s buffalo wings and minimud slide hits just the right spot. If you don’t seem to keep count of your beers then this is the place for you.

Location: Gera Legend, 2 & 3, Upper Ground Floor, Gera Legend, North Main Road, Koregaon Park, Pune



If you’re a casual drinker who loves to snack in the open then this is the place for you. WTF! has a variety of finger food to choose from and the alcohol doesn’t take a toll on your wallet, obviously. Knitting it altogether, the music, the rooftop sailing breeze the ambiance is amazing.

Location: 2nd Floor, East Court, Phoenix Market City, Opposite Giga Space, Viman Nagar, Pune

Jimmy Hu

Cocktails & Asian food is Jimmy Hu’s forte. Theyhave a fresh range of cocktails and it’s au naturale as they use fresh fruits & natural ingredients only and none of that synthetic syrups and artificial stuff. A Jimmy Hakka Box of noodles with Sichuan sauce, chili basil sauce, with your choice of meat or vegetables to go along with would be an ideal meal.

Location: C-2, Lane Number 6, Meera Nagar, Koregaon Park, Pune

Apache NXT

Located on two floors, Apache NXT is the perfect place for lounging. They have this easy going lounge area at the ground floor with semi-couch sitting area and the upstairs area is ridden with proper bar upholstery and oozes class. Cheap alcohol and finger-licking finger food will keep you at bay for a couple of hours.

Location: 1196, Shrishti Chambers, Tukaram Paduka Chowk, Ghole Road, F.C. Road, Ghole Road, Shivaji Nagar, Pune


Cafe Eastwood

Amid all the shortage of viable options for college peeps to hangout in Kothrud, this place just slices through that. Cafe Eastwood combines the forevermore overlapping worlds of finger food and drinks. Great place to kickback.

Location: Chintamani Pride, Near Citypride, Kothrud, Pune


The Urban Foundry

Based around a garage-like setup, this place doesn’t lack in flamboyance. With a choice to be seated indoors and outdoors as well it has many horizons to be explored. The food is just delicious and by extension it’s nutella cheesecake is the sh*t. Nice place to sip cocktails and enjoy the variety of delicacies it has to offer.

Location: 1, Balewadi High Street, Next To Cummins India Office, Cummins India Office Road, Balewadi, Pune

Seven Seas

The decor and upholstery of the place just makes it stand out from the rest and as far as first impressions go this place will not come off as cheap. But they do have pretty affordable rates  especially for drinks and the food here is just incredible. Seafood is their forte.

Location: GP 154, Block G, MIDC, Shahu Nagar, Chinchwad, Pune
