The Quad BLR is now opened at the Bengaluru International airport. Now the airport is Super Cool With Craft Beer, Doner Kebabs, Gyros And Some Retail Therapy.
Bengaluru International airport – the Quad – BLR :
Travellers to and from the Kempegowda International Airport in Bengaluru should account for some extra time to spend at the new open-air lounge the Quad – BLR right outside the main terminal building.
The Quad – BLR, which started operations on 1 January, promises to be an exciting stopover for travellers, with over a dozen F&B outlets and shops, including an outpost of the well-known Whitefield microbrewery Windmills Craftworks.
Outlets at the Quad-Blr :
The Quad-BLR has over 20 outlets on the premises. It has 4 zones to engage and entertain the travelers and customers including retail, F&B, Flea Market and the Arena.
The outlet operates round the clock. There is a wide opportunity to explore a variety of fashion brands. The retail outlet the Quad-BLR has a centrally located LED video wall and an arena with life performances.
Retail therapy shops include Auromonde, which has accessories, bath & body products, and gifting options from Auroville, and the Hidesign showroom.
The plaza is designed to host musicals, poetry/book reading, concerts, musical performances, plays etc.
Pub at the Quad-BLR :
The pub currently serves six fresh brews in collaboration with Geist, a brewing start-up that delivers freshly brewed craft beers to over 100 pubs and restaurants in Bengaluru.
While Windmills is serving up three of its signature beers—the Stout, the Mango Ale, and Hefeweizen—Geist’s selections are its Witty Wit (wheat beer), Unkel Dunkel (dunkelweizen), and Marzen (lager).
According to the CEO of Geist, “All six beers are made at the Geist production brewery in Bengaluru, and are the result of a collaboration between Windmills and Geist”.
Beer is available at Windmills Craftworks only between 10:30 am and 11:30 pm, so people flying in and out between those times are lucky.
Eateries at the Quad-BLR :
The eateries at the Quad-BLR are Burrito Boyz, Cafe Azzure, House of Kebabs, The Wok Shop, and Barley & Grapes Café.
The retail stores include craft stores and toy shops. A hexagonal structure in the middle of the quadrangle will have five LCD screens, and the airport authority plans to use them for flight updates, promotions, and telecasting sports events.
Even a road trip to the Bengaluru airport sounds like fun!
