SkyLit Rooftop Lounge- Citrus Hotels | Romancing Nature

Sitting under a starry sky enjoying a cool breeze looking down as the world hurries past, your loved ones with you, and a perfect gourmet spread.

If you feel this is how you should unwind after a hard day's work, then Skylit Rooftop at Citrus Hotels is the place for you to be.

The blue lit lounge offers a perfect view-from top of Bengaluru thanks to the central Location of the Citrus Hotel at Cunningham Road.The lounge is open only for your evening pleasures and I had the opportunity to visit it on a breezy  night after rains.

Though I expected it to be closed thanks to the rains and the nearing monsoons, I was surprised to see the beautifully lit rooftop with alfresco as well as beautifully covered seating area along with an inner lounge area for those who who need more privacy and a separate bar area that adds to your romance.

If you are already impressed with the ambience then youll be all the more once you start sampling the neverending starters.

The lounge serves 16 kebabs and grill specialities - veg and non veg -from all over the world. Starting with the lavash bread and three varieties of dips - one Italian, two Indian on your table, the spread  includes Tulsi Tangdi Kebab, Ajwaini Macchi, Cajun Grilled fish etc for the meat lovers, and Subji Seekh Kebab, Paneer Peshawari, Cheesy Mexican Nachos, Cottage Cheese satay,Veg Fajitas, assorted grilled Vegetables, Khumb Da Bhutta ( masala marinated grilled mushrooms and babycorn) etc for vegetarians.I loved the khumb da bhutta and Paneer Peshawari while the family vote went for humble seekh kebab perfectly flavoured with fennel seeds.

The main course includes assorted vegetables including rare gravies, Indian breads , salads, rice varieties -Pulaos, Biryanis , Fried Rice etc which is authentic and tasty.I love my main course but that night thanks to the tasty and filling starters, I just nibbled on the mains and then jumped to the colourful dessert section.

Desserts included walnut brownies, assorted pastries, rasogullas, assorted barfi, mango cheesecake ,gajar ka halwa (carrot halwa) along with fresh fruits and icecream. We loved the pastry and I can vouch the authenticity of gajar ka halwa.

The mango cheesecake was no-bake one and I felt it had very less mango flavour except for drops of mango jam on top.And yes this was  the only negative point I could find in an otherwise excellent dinner.

Overall the Ambience was great - perfect for a loving night out. The service was perfect. We also met F&B Manager Mr. Gagan Thapa who explained to us the essence of the bar and live kitchen lounge.

I had my fill and I am leaving few pics for your eyes and tastebuds. If these make your mouth water then tonight make sure your reserve your table at
