10 Downing Street

They’ve got the basics right as far as pubs in Chennai are concerned. Good interiors. Outstanding music. Average service. Parking for 10 cars and seating for over a 100 people.

I first went there with a male friend a few days ago, but didn’t make it past the door. It was ladies’ night, and entry was allowed only if you had a member of the fairer sex with you. We didn’t make any attempt to pass off as bearded ladies, and left.

The next time, I got my wife to tag along. Of course, I had made it a point to wear fully covered shoes, a collared shirt and bottom wear that stopped well below my ankles. So they let us in.

Like I mentioned before, the interiors were nice. Quite pub like, with a sprinkling of bar stools. But there was something about the way people were seated that gave me a sense of deja vu.

Men in one section. Women in another. And couples in a third.

Boys’ school. Girls’ school. Co-ed.


Very disappointing. What’s a pub that has more restrictions than drinks on their menu.
