‘Three Dots and a Dash’: A paradise of tantalizing tropical cocktails, hookah, lip-smacking food and enchanting exotica tunes

Verdict: 4.5/5

Gotta group of friends and want to hang out at a place which makes you high the moment you put your foot in? A place which offers foot tapping music, hookah, sumptuous Polynesian delicacies and exotic cocktails, synonym to its name? There is one name that has it all and they call themselves – Three Dots & a Dash, a new age bar that brings alive the traditions of Tiki!

Located in the ever buzzing locality of Indiranagar, this is one of the few places in the city that has made a name for itself in a very short span of time (six months, seven days to be precise).

The name is inspired from a drink which was made by one of the greatest cocktail creators "Don the Beachcomber ". Three dots and a dash is the morse code for the letter "V" and that was used to symbolize victory in World War II. Ernest Raymond Gantt, famously known as Don the beachcomber, created this drink as a tribute to the American soldiers who fought in World War II. 


This rooftop bar not only serves amazing cocktail but will leave you enthralled with its presentation and ultra-chick serving glasses. The visitors can also savor Tropical Sheeshas with exotic flavors as they soak in a taste of Hawaii.

Highlights from the menu

Herb Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms
Long story short, this is one thing you should definitely try whether or not you like mushrooms, it is exceptional. The melting mozzarella cheese, fresh herbs and stuffed mushrooms will make you shameless, asking for more and more.



Bacon Wrapped Sausages
Can you think of anything that can get better than chicken sausages wrapped in bacon? Well, I can’t. This marriage of bacon and chicken is still a better love story than Twilight.



Spinach Stuffed Cottage Cheese Steak
Ohh boy, this doesn’t get any better. That big loaf of cottage steak in a heart shape (well almost) with a hint of bitterness from spinach served alongside crème glazed pineapple, carrot and broccoli, takes this dish to a different level altogether.




Chicken Prawn
This is another blockbuster from Three Dots. Chicken and prawn is topped with aromatic greens and is served with saffron herbed rice, banana tomato salad. The rice with the smooth chicken and prawn curry blends really well.



Cocktails
Before I go into the details of few drinks, would like to congratulate the entire team of Three Dots who has put in so much of effort in ideating and bringing these drinks to reality.

Caribbean Cooler
A refreshing punch with combination of vodka, Caribbean rum, cranberry juice, tender coconut water, flavored with blue curacao served in green coconut shell.



Zombie Punch
Legend has it that Donn beach originally concocted the zombie to help a hung-over customer get through a business meeting. He returned several days later to complain that he had been turned into a zombie for his entire trip. Well, it is a combination of white rum, gold rum, brandy, pineapple juice, orange juice and bitters. Its smooth, fruity taste works to conceal its extremely high alcoholic content.



Missionary’s Downfall
This cocktail is a refreshing combination of white rum, peach syrup, pineapple juice and ginger ale. It is a hot favourite at Three Dots.




Three Dots and a Dash
This is a must try cocktail made with a tweak from its original formula. The best part of the drink is, its over-the-top garnish, a token trademark of the tiki genre. It combines white rum, brandy, apple juice and red bull.
