Unlike many other bars in the city, Tehkhana is relatively light on the wallet. The best time to visit the bar is when a major sporting event is being held; a huge screen is put up to watch the match as a group. Tehkhana is also very well known for its DJ nights and its regular Happy Hours, both of which make it one of the most popular bars in Udaipur.
Located on the lobby level of the Inder Residency Hotel, Harbour Bar is designed to represent a ship harbour. With cream-colored seats scattered around and quirky yet elegant themed décor, Harbour Bar is a comfortable place to spend an evening. The best part about the bar though is the remarkable collection of international and Indian wines, beers, spirits, heady cocktails and mocktails.
