Pune for the coming-of-age generation is quite a lot about good music, cruising around town on mopeds, diverse food and innumerable places to just hang out. On my recent trip to Pune, I visited several pubs, resto-bars and cafes where I enjoyed myself to the fullest with a couple of my friends. All this without burning a massive hole in my pocket was a task to achieve.
However, I did come across seven places in the town where one could not only enjoy chilled beer under Rs 200, but also amazing music that sets the mood.
