Cheers (Cinnamon Grand).

Cheers is a British style pub located at the basement of the Cinnamon Grand serving great food and expensive drinks.

Secreted away in the basement of the Cinnamon Grand, Cheers Pub exists in a twilight dimension: almost a bar, nearly a restaurant, not yet a ‘pub’. The atmosphere has been constructed from the half memories of a 19th century gentleman’s club (replete with the Emeralite lamp fittings but missing the leather Chesterfields), a carpeted billiard hall, and a wood panelled drawing room. You may be thinking ‘The Reform Club’ but you should probably be thinking ‘Manchester United Football Club’, at least then you would understand why most of the tables remain empty on a Saturday night: ‘supporters’ bemusingly reserve most of the tables then show up 10 minutes before full time to cheer on ‘their’ team, leaving all the other guests with a sore bum and a cramped table. I say the words ‘secreted away’ and ‘atmosphere’ quite wrongly, but I do also say the word ‘constructed’ quite correctly, for here is a place that has been built in which to eat, drink and watch some football, without the ambiance associated with either eating, drinking, or watching football.

The food is generally good. Unsurprisingly, Cheers serves a wide range of British gastropub fare – steak and kidney pie, bangers and mash, sunday roast, the works. Prices range from Rs. 500 to Rs. 1000 for mains ( reasonable minus taxes) and drinks follow standard hotel prices, ie. exorbitant: Rs. 430 for a tall Lion, Rs. 490 for 25ml of Smirnoff, Rs. 400 for a 50 of Old Reserve (!). Still, the food is good and the staff are unfailingly courteous.
