So I was here last weekend. I had with me a good friend from Singapore. He happens to be a top notch litigator and just wanted to get away from work. He was always curious about India and I had the nerve to tell him nightlife wasnt too bad here and he should make the trip. He chose the Park Hotel. I was thrilled because just the last weekend before that I was at the leather bar till abt 2am. So we head there on a Friday and Sat night and guess what! 10.45 pm . They close. My friend was laughing and I was just plain embarrased.To start off the first thing the bouncer says is sorry only for couples.Then we explain to him that one of us stays here and so we are allowed in. After enterning I found one guy who was obviously single and alone drunk and dancing quite idiotically and even fell twice on the dance floor managing to ruin a couple's dance.So what was the point of the bouncer telling us only couples , so that he could let in a monkey like the other guy. So let me get this straight . Two decent chaps wanna drink on a sat night with some good music and maybe some decent crowd where we can get to know people or just even ask a girl or two and thats not allowed! Then what the hell do you club for. But of course solitary monkeys can be let in. Then I still did not lose hope so I told him lets head to the Taj Mount Road. Guess what couples only. I lost my temper and told him we just wanna drink and told him we stay at the Park. Then he lets us in. And at least they were open for a while. But the Park was a sore disappointment. I mean 10.45. And I thought Bangalore was sad because of the 11.30 ruling. 10.45 is when school kids gulp their milk and go to sleep. Not when individuals post work come out to relax. I think The Park and chennai night life in general has a lot to learn yet about what "Partying" means.
