ONYX Air Lounge & Kitchen
Onyx will bowl you over with it’s freshness, zip and zing.
There are some restaurants when they have everything else that’s going for them, offer food that’s better than it should be. The view from Onyx air lounge and kitchen, overlooking M.G road on one side and the T.M.A Pai hall on the other is so vast, and the sense of floating above so engrossing, that the magic of the food and ambiance is merely a bonus. Add to it, a bartender that expertly swirls the bottles like in the movies, and your life seems complete.
A monumental live screen with a separate large 17 seated table is poised ever so royally in the already classy, vivid atmosphere. In keeping with its name Onyx, i.e., which removes negative energy, here is a unique place perfect for get-togethers to bond over food, drinks, music and more! Interactive elements like Teppanyaki live, an exclusive dessert counter and an expansive island bar, you name it, and Onyx has it.
On a hot summer’s night, when Mangalore shimmers yellow and green beneath a topaz sky, Onyx air lounge and kitchen is much the same. With a sub-level party room, separate smoking section, great selection of alcohol and high-quality cutlery, the friendly staff is an extra.
So with all this going on, the food is as robust and sturdy as the place that it’s a part of. It’s also as international as the contemporary interiors they display.
Their Oreo shake is made of a crisp, tasty wafer and crumbly oreo bits and cream, that does smoothly tingle your palate. It comes with colorful sprinkles decorated all around the top to distract you from the chocolaty brown oreo hues.
If it’s a mocktail that stands out, it has to be the Bell Pepper, comprising of cantaloupe, orange juice, and bell pepper melon. Though it has a high bell pepper flavor, it still isn’t overpowering and is nice and smooth. Dislike Capsicums? No worries, because the Melon Sour Mocktail scores big time with a watermelon base and a minty flavor that is undoubtedly for the sugar fans.
There is, naturally enough, a varied menu dedicated to the superstar contents and yet we opt for the Chicken Kalmi Kebab because what’s life without a kebab?However, only one thing matters with a Kebab. Has it been adequately cooked and crisped? Here, it has. It comes with a green sauce that complements it perfectly.
Meanwhile, we can’t skip out on a Paneer dish, so the Paneer Peri Peri it is. The tinge of Peri Peri is best savored when eaten slowly. Another dish that we highly recommend is, the Chilli cheese rum-flaming pizza, crispy, delectable balanced with the bitterness of the rum in a nice contrast. And then, there is the Bhatti ka murgh presented beautifully in a brass jug with charcoal pieces at the bottom and juicy Chicken kebab skewers.
Afterwards, as you move stealthily onto the vast dessert station, you can find a tempting array in the Masala Chai Panacotta and the ravishing cheese paan. A unique sponge cake is seen in the Tres Leches but full points to the dessert winner for us -Marble Cheesecake that we scarfed down in seconds
With nothing short of a ‘pitch-perfect meal,’ your love for the place just intensifies. An in-house DJ spins out pulsating music and is raring to rock the place while the inventive cocktail menu is impressive(read Tamarind Martini). The VIP lounge in a stylish cubicle with a customized menu and personalized hostess is enough to lift your spirits.
Onyx air lounge and kitchen sure has raised the bar, for party dwellers of the city making it swanky, sassy yet affordable for Mangalore’s clubbing culture. What are you waiting for?

The Last Stop – Lounge
Mesmerising ambience, flavoursome food and rhythmic music awaits you at The Last Stop Lounge
Now that Mangaloreans are willing to take a break from conventional restaurants and explore quirky, new age eateries, The Last Stop Lounge emerges as the ideal tavern for an “out of this world” experience. Uniquely built around a garage theme, the attention to detailing about decor deserves an accolade like none other. From tool-shaped cutlery, a vintage bike elegantly perched just after the main entrance or the confrontational slogans dotting the walls, they’ve got it down pat. Why they even have bi-cycle pedals as foot rests below the table! Talk about innovation!
Food spans to a variety of continental, Indian and Chinese and The Last Stop Lounge scores high in the continental cuisine.
For starters, the Charmoula chicken skewers served with a sublime honey mustard mayonnaise is a crowd-pleasing dish. As, is the Corn crab Tikki, if you prefer something sweetish.
Furthermore, vegetarians can breathe a contented sigh. Here’s a place that serves some exceptional vegetarian cuisine like Dahi ke sholey, Paneer hilltop, stuffed mushrooms and paneer chilli with well-balanced dimensions of flavour.
With every plate executed in perfect technical detail (like the fries, for example, come in a tiny snack trolley, and the potato wedges served in a little red scooter), The Last Stop Lounge never ceases to amaze in their exemplary service.
Ostensibly, they believe that a good laugh gives your appetite a boost, which is why their bar menu is brimming with witty one-liners to crack you up, while simultaneously prepping you to savour from their extensive spread. The novice drinker can indulge from a range of alcoholic beverages including cocktails, and mocktails(if you intend to stay sober). The Cosmopolitan is worth luxuriating in, and they do serve some decent Sangria.
For the mains, tuck into some ravishing chicken scallopini comprising juicy chicken served with portions of steamed rice and veggies. Pasta is a delight, and the Mac and cheese, with heaps of sauces and cheese, are a cut above. Bear in mind, that you may not eat for a couple of hours after devouring this. If not days. Nevertheless, you can dig into some Chimi Churri Rubbed Basa, which is a tasty, value-for-money dish.
Subsequently, groove to techno and hip-hop music every Saturday by their in-house DJ, while Ladies night on Tuesdays ensures free shooters for women, so ring to book a table in advance. With a mammoth screen projector, sports enthusiasts are sure to have an eccentric game-night, making it one of the city’s foremost hotspots.
Altogether, a hip crowd, delightful bar bites and scintillating music, consider your weekends sorted at The Last Stop Lounge.
