Tucked away in the heart of Pune’s busy Kalyani Nagar neighbourhood, Juju is more than just a bar. It is a doorway to a Mexican-inspired haven. The atmosphere welcomes you as soon as you enter, skillfully fusing cosy intimacy with contemporary sophistication. The pièce de résistance? Decor with a cactus theme dances overhead, creating a captivating glow that evokes a sense of intimacy and romance. 

Pristine windows provide views of Pune’s verdant streets, lending an air of whimsicalness to the atmosphere. Elephant & Co.’s visionary co-founder Karan Khilnani, saw Juju as an experience rather than just a bar. It has a cosy 36-seater layout and is intended to enchant with its modern Mexican flair and cosy charm. 

And, oh, the menu! A burst of flavours is anticipated from Chef Hanoze Shroff’s curation, which combines real Mexican ingredients with delicate Indian undertones. Every dish, from the delicious Lamb Birria Tacos to the Chips & Dips with Guacamole, is a symphony of flavour.

Now, let’s talk about the star of the show—tequila. The mastermind behind Juju’s cocktails, Rahul Kamath, turns this spirit into an adventure. Every cocktail is a work of art that expertly combines innovation and tradition. Mexico’s spirit and essence can be experienced through tequila, which is more than just a drink. You are whisked away to a realm of custom, creativity, and the prospect of a night to remember with each drink. Not to mention, do not miss their famous Juju Bomb, a tequila and beer blend that is like a party in a glass.

Juju is a place where laughter reverberates off the walls and shared plates foster connections. However, its true charm lies in its atmosphere, which extends beyond the delicious food and beverages. It is a sanctuary where the sound of glasses clinking mingles with Latin beats, beckoning guests to lose themselves in the pure bliss of the occasion.

Juju is more than simply a bar; it is an immersive experience. It’s a vivid tapestry woven with flavours, scents, and an atmosphere that envelops you. It guarantees that your visit will be nothing less than an exhilarating journey through Mexico.
