Plan B Lounge makes amazing-tasting Indian food. And with everything made fresh in their kitchen, from their paneer to their homemade spice blends, they’re hard to beat for authentic southern Indian bites.
What’s more is that Plan B Lounge is also an awesome craft beer bar with hundreds of beers in the fridge, which they’re trying to empty this New Year’s Eve with a party to say goodbye and good riddance to 2021.
While you can celebrate the countdown and the midnight buzz at Plan B Lounge if you like, it’s not the only time you can get down to Parnell Road to enjoy some cold craft beers and tasty eats. Aside from the 10pm-12:30am time slot, Plan B will also be slinging the beers and cooking up a storm for guests at 5-8pm and 8-10pm. Read on for more details.
Plan B Lounge has put together a very special menu for their end-of-year, say goodbye to 2021, New Year’s Eve Party. But first, the craft beer because this time around the crew at Plan B is serving up five of their most premium craft beers to pair with their tasty menu.
In no particular order, NYE partiers will get to sip on beers from Milk Shout, which is a World Best Shout Awards Winner, as well as brews from Parrot Dog Beer, Double Vision, Mcleod’s and Behemoth Beer.
These beers will be paired with a South Indian delicacy, Vedu Vada, which is made using vigna mungo beans, ginger, cumin and chillies and fried in oil. Its crispy exterior and soft interior is heaven. Guests will also be served an Andhra fish fry, crispy prawns, an egg pepper fry and potato fritters. A visit to Plan B is an evening for the senses, especially this New Year’s Eve.
To get you festive, Plan B Lounge has also organised a DJ to be selecting the party starters and spinning tunes throughout the evening. Tickets start at $59.
