    “Chandra’s Kitchen” is the best one in royapettah- serving 24 hours – but for me only-since the kitchen is within my house.

    Some more:

    – Murugan idly Shop. A commonly overlooked late-night option. It’s open till Midnight.

    – Hotel Samco, Alwarpet signal. Mostly kerala-ish non-veg food, till about 2 AM.

    – Main Street, Residency Towers – Midnight Buffet is half the price of the regular buffet. They have less than half the buffet at that time but probably still worth it. Open till 3 AM (?)

    – Ascendas Food Court in Taramani is 24 hours I think. Don’t know which establishments at the food court are open though.

    – Chicken Katti Rolls and Kebabs… Cozee at Besant Nagar Beach is open till about 11.45.

    – And after all that food: Cigarettes, Snacks and Beverages, 24/7 in Thiruvanmiyur – Shop right behind the temple tank, Similar one next to IIT Hot Chips in Adyar.

    Late Night booze:

    – Raj Bhavan/Raj Towers (exact name?!) in TNagar. This is a 5-6 storey hotel on the road you take towards W.Mambalam from TNagar. Roof Top bar. Open till about 12.30 AM. Great food and service too.

    – Bar at the Russian Cultural Centre on KasturiRangan road off Chola Sheraton. (Bar’s at the far-right end from the entrance to the RCC). Its open till, depending on who you ask and what night you’re there on, 2,3,4 in the morning. Slightly seedy but if you’re a bunch of guys looking for a drink you’re fine.

    – If all else fails: If you’re totally dry and have nowhere to go, wait out the late hours; the wonderful TASMAC bars and shops all over the city open bright and early at 8 AM. (Even this is changing in the next couple of months with the government changing official timings though)

    @ashwin raghu

    i hope u mean wonderful with good helpings of sarcasm

    When i look at TASMAC shops, i see the beacon of hypocrasy, and corruption in the insulated mindset of TN politics. A state with one of the highest sales of booze in India is noway a state where prohibition can work or where drinking is considered a sin – which is the case potrayed by our politicians

    i dream of a day when wine shops will look decent in chennai and will stock all brands. maybe someday i can walk into big bazaar and buy my booze in chennai. or walk into a pub..

    But for now, we have to contend with a riot of ruffians getting drunk in public on pavments outside tasmac stores legally, whereas its illegal for people so serve booze inside the 4 walls of a bar or restraunt. Another stunner is that we dont get the all the brands either because of some unoffical ban on buying booze that is manufactured outside of TN they say.

    We are looking at what is the so called middle path between liberalisation and prohibition .. so as titled in the policy of liquor sale in tn. god knows what so middle and right about it

    I am amused at how the topic of “eat-outs” turned to “booze-outs” in the comments…. :D .. just kidding…. ;)
