The milieu is lively, entertaining, and extremely casual so you don’t have to worry about dressing up on Friday.

They also have a live band MOJO DUO performing at the venue which ensures that guests have a truly enjoyable weekend.


The place had so much to offer, team AG at one point got confused where to start from. Luckily for us, we ran into Ms. Kathrin Gnilka, the PR & Marketing Manager of Crowne Plaza Hotel– an amazing lady who went out of her way and guided us about the popular and must try dishes. After food, that’s one thing we simply love about Crowne Plaza Hotel – they always take great care of their guests and leave no stone unturned to make everyone feel completely at home.
