Manhattan, The Craft Brewery and Exchange
The first thing that catches your fancy when you enter Manhattan, Brewery and Bar Exchange at Level 1 of the Global Foyer Mall on Golf Course Road, Gurgaon, is the huge copper brew house. Shining cylindrical vessels connected to each other through pipes, they remind you of a vintage Brewery of Germany, but what’s brewing inside them is beer – different flavours of it rather! Yes, it is one of the largest and finest microbreweries in the country! While you appreciate the aesthetic effect of ‘beer on tap’, the large format screens are sure to attract your attention next. But why have six of them all at one place? Well, four of them are for a very exciting concept – motion-based interactive gaming. Sip your beer and then fight it out…on the screens! The two really large ones in the center serve as an interactive backdrop to the stage during events. And if you happen to be a soccer and cricket aficionado who wishes to catch the action live 70mm style, then this place is sure to rock you.
