Choices are between Nizam Club / Fateh Maidan Club / Hyderabad Boat Club / Sailing Club Annexe / Secunderabad Club.

I strongly recommend Secunderabad Club, courtesy zen91, since seating in lawns is possible to enjoy the chill.

I personally am ruled out for 8th dinner. It is the day the 3 Idiots meet once again in future (only here we are 8 of us).

Tks Nazim. I would be away from this meet due to personal obligations, Sister's Birthday, so have to be present for the traditional family dinner. Just in case the Dinner Meet is postponed to 9th, count me in.

BTW, is it Boats Club Again? Who is taking the lead to book the table and make sure that the things are in place? Shall we ask Mr. Bajaj, if he can help us this time too.

@hyd_traveller: Mr. Bajaj, hope you are tuned into the latest developments in the thread. Can Mr. Sagar host us again?

@MC: Ani, do remember to pester him from the start for your favourite Bheja Fry. Better take a couple of Bheja's from Mutton Shop this time

Rates in most clubs are similar and at maximum have 10% variance.

@Nikhil: Had bheja Fry last Saturday to my Heart's Content at the Club.

If its Sec'bad Club or Sailing Club Annexe, then people please be particular about the dress code. Its better to turn up as per the dress code, rather than being turned back from the venue.

Same thing happened to a friend of mine, who was invited for dinner there. He was turned back from the reception area itself.

So a "Club Fight" is going on here....huh?

Secbad Club is the best, Sailing is next best, Nizams, Boats Club and FMC definetly not on the food quality basis though.

Anyways, who is offering to host us for this meet? Please step forward.

I dont think there will be more than 10-12 people at the most knowing from past experience.

+1 Wish to mention the dress code at sailing Annexe/Secunderabad Clum.

Gentelmen to arrive at the club wearing shoes only. No collarless T Shirts allowed.

Unlike our previous meets, this is going to be a very very sober meet..would you guys want it this way??

I would prefer Sailing Annexe for the shear view that you would get of the Tank Bund and Secbad Club is too formal I guess.

Brajesh Bhai, I still remember my 1st T-BHP meet which was round about the same time last year at Nizam's Club.

If we can have something like that, then I'm sure all of us will promise to be sober and muted

I remember the last dinner meet at Sailing club where RR dared to come in shorts.

Me and him had to rush to my home so he could change into an oversized trouser to be allowed entry to the club

MC..last time we were spared as we all were confined to one room..this time its going to be in the open..Should I try for a separate room for all..it will cost us extra and might not be possible, as the time is too short.Earlier I have booked halls 2/3 months in advance.

NO.

But why would it be sober??? Shoes we all wear. Most of us come from office, so we will be in formal dress!! Is there more to the dress code like - suit, jacket, tuxedo, blah blah blah....!

By sober..I was referring to the decibel levels.

Brajesh Bhai, I'm game and I'm sure so would be the other regulars.

If we have the fixed confirmations, then I think we can go ahead.

Let me join the Fight Club too..
- Secunderabad club is too formal.In the lawns we need to conduct ourselves very
formally with low decibels and less jocularity.But food is good and has a wide range
of variety.
- Sailing club is better than Secunderabad club,less formal and maginificent view.Last
time,we had snacks near the lawns and a buffet dinner.This can be a costly affair.
- Nizam club is known for its Shikanpur and Biryani and some awesome
desserts.Personally,I wouldnt like to get holed up in a room,when we can enjoy the
stars under a cold night.
- Boats Club can be a place to see some crowd from bourgeois repertoire,but the
food is good and dirt cheap.Ambience is mediocre IMHO and decibel levels can be
high as the next table would probably have a Telangana discussion !!!!
My vote goes for SAILING CLUB.
