Hi all,

Well, i've finally succombed to the temptation and booked my first India trip....... now for the important things!

Is there anywhere in jaipur thats good for a beer? In fact, i'll even take not very good, but sells beer!

Cheers in advance.

Treat yourself to a late afternoon stroll through the Rambagh Palace grounds/gardens ... followed by a drink or two in their very comfy Polo Bar.

In Jaipur we bought our beers (Kingfishers) from a local shop and took them back to our Hotel and had them on the roof top of the Hertiage Hotel, we also were able to take them into the restaurant to have with our meals as the hotel did not serve alcohol but allowed it to be consumed. I'd have to look up thge names of the restaurants we visited in Jaipur but every time we had a cold beer with our meals and always cheap...you will have a great time Indian beer is great and is now popular in Australia

Have a meal at Niro's... they don't serve alcohol but there is a pub just near it. I normally order food and go to the pub for a few quick ones while the order is being executed. Do try the samosa & sweets from Laxmi Misthan Bhandar.

I found a 'downmarket' type of place that was little more than a place to play pool and snooker, they served me bottles of Kingfisher, but I can't remember if they had them on the premises or they went to get them from a local shop, they also served some food.

Loved the place, went back 3 times.

I'll find the details if your interested.

It was near the centre, on the main road that runs south of the big wall, near to the Indian Coffee house.

If you're staying anywhere near Ganpati Plaza (can't remember the name of the street), but leading off MI Road from Ganpati Plaza there is a small strip of shops including a grog shop. Buy a coldie there and drink it wherever you like! We had an enjoyable stay around the corner in the Hotel Atithi.

One of the best places to eat was the rooftop restaurant at Umaid Bhawan's, the best food in India I must say. They did lack alcohol, so that was a downer. In all of Jaipur, I did not touch a drop of the good stuff. Had to wait until I got to Bombay.

kingfisher in jaipur

Go to the Pearl Palace (which is also a great place to stay). They have a wonderful roof top restaurant and serve cold Kingfisher for 100 Rps. The food is homemade and very good - very inexpensive.
