Bangalore has been known since long time for its pub culture. Many of the time people would also call it as the Pub Capital, not sure if it is still being called so. The reason for that is quite simply coz people love visiting Pubs and hanging out instead of going for a restaurant or discotheque. It is simply coz a pub in general is a quitter place for people to sit & enjoy a drink while having conversation. I think this trend has been there since ages. And to be able to cater to needs of people pubs opened in huge numbers in Bangalore from early 90’s. Sherlocks Pub is one such place that opened in early 1991 and been there in since then. Its been 25 years and a Silver Jubilee for the pub. I got an opportunity to be part of the Press Meet that was held recently at their oldest outlet in Frazer Town, Bangalore.
This was an event that gave an opportunity to meet one eminent personalities in Media Industry, Vijay Grover. He is the CEO & Founder of Bangalore Media Foundation, Former Editor (South) at Tehelka, Former New Presenter at INX News and many other posts.
Also, met his son Akshay Grover who is a pass out from IHM is also following his father’s footsteps in some way and handling the Sherlocks Café at Frazer Town.
The press meet for a great occasion where in Sherlock shared some of its accomplishments to the media.
