5/78 Skybar is located on the rooftop of BCC Indore. It offers a perfect night view of the city with an amazing food and drinks menu, finely curated by celebrity chef Rakhee Vaswani and chef Mitesh Rangras. And I was fortunate enough to have tasted the food in their presence with the tiniest detail of every dish served and each drink poured.
To start with, I had a ‘Spicy Avacado Sushi’, a perfect sushi option for vegetarians. The ‘Mushroom & Water Chestnut’ dimsums are a great blend of flavors will definitely leave you to have more. The ‘Mac n Cheese Fritters’ and ‘Crispy Paneer’ are a must have to keep up the taste buds robust. The pizzas here are thin crust and are prepared with fresh cheddar, gouda, mozzarella cheese, etc. thus tastes delicious till the last bite. The ‘Nachos Overload’ here is a masterpiece, prepared with in-house made tortilla chips, loaded with fresh veggies and topped with lots of cheese. The ‘Burrito Bowl’ is a perfect blend of grilled veggies, spicy mixed beans, guacamole, and jalapeno sauce. For the main course, I had a ‘Khowsuey Noodle Meal’. Though I’m not a fan of noodles but loved the combination of chicken and noodles served with hot & creamy coconut curry. A highly recommended dish over here.
I absolutely loved the cocktails here. I was served a ‘5/78 Shooter’ (Tequila served with a pineapple juice made with jalapenos and herbs) to kickstart the night. The ‘Blood & Sand’ (Scotch, blood orange syrup, fresh orange juice, and sweet vermouth) can’t be a better combination of the stated. But my favorite was ‘Crimson Tide’ (Cranberry tea, cinnamon syrup, orange, crushed ice & vodka), it was sweet to savor with a tint of vodka. Finally, the night ended on a sweet note with ‘Double Trouble Cheesecake’.
The ambiance is perky here. The standing heaters won’t let you freeze in the winter chills. The ‘Stop Making Sense’ sign is the showstopper of this place. An elevated live music platform adds up to the beauty of this place. This is definitely one of the best rooftop cafes in the city.
