Did it move?! Well had it been on levelled ground and on wheels, one would be excused for mistaking this to be a vintage railway saloon car. An imaginative tribute to the classic narrow-gauge toy train that since 1903, even to this day, chugs from Kalka to Shimla, through dramatic views of the hills and charming hamlets. A 96 Kms journey through 102 tunnels, today this route is a UNESCO World heritage site.
With honey oak tiled floors, plush tan leather upholstery, brass accents, antique mirrors and running view of the mountains, this is where conversations hit a new high. Over a fantastic range of Appletinis, Himalayan detox cocktails, locally inspired concoctions, malts and ciders, evenings promise to be long. The menu presents finger foods and munchies that one finds along some of the iconic railway stops between Howrah junction and Shimla. Giving you company are some rare photographs of the railway’s history, vintage recreated memorabilia and collectibles. Let’s just say, this is a bar, right on track.
