India is where the game of modern polo was nurtured into the admired game it is today. Its popularity was established by Babar, the founder of the Mughal dynasty in the 15th century. Following that regime was the British Empire rule, during which polo only remained a popular sport in smaller enclaves, such as Manipur. It later regained its popularity, and is currently thought of as a regal sport.
To pay homage to this game of royalty and equestrian elegance, Ananda has named their bar and lounge area the “Polo Bar.” Featuring specialty drinks like the “Polo Smash,” a Punjabi twist on the traditional Bourbon Smash, the bar honors Indian history in imperial style.
Enjoy “Bliss Hour,” Ananda’s take on Happy Hour, at the Polo Bar from 4:00 to 6:00, daily. Bliss Hour features a wide variety of wines and beers, as well as a special selection of cocktails and small plates, at a happy hour rate.
The Polo Bar, while honoring one particular sport with its name, is the perfect place to watch all the major sporting events in high-definition on our large-screen televisions.
