For a change, driving further we landed up in HSR. The Colony Gastropub in HSR is newly popular terrace bar and impressive graffiti arts- which has gained popularity among the foodies.

Ambience
The Colony Gastropub is located in the 27th main road, HSRwith the honey seeking bear logo. There is a public parking space in front of the restaurant and also they provide valet parking for the cars.
