Jubilee Hills is a partyaholic area of Hyderabad where you can find many pubs, clubs, and lounges to overcome the whole week stress and work pressure. TOS is one of the amazing places you will find in Jubilee Hills area. Not many of the people know that TOS is the same place which was previously known as The Other Side. As the place got revamped with more innovative ideas for the ambiance, food, and service to match the competition level of other lounges. As soon as I have entered the place the ambiance made me awestruck to it. The place not like other lounges too gloomy or over loud music is being played. The place is divided into section one is comfortable dining place and another one is perfect lounge space with live screening bar and seating area for the people. When we say lounge the food quality and taste will be on toss whether it has good food or will it soothes my taste buds or not. Like this thoughts, clouds were rotating over my head but when I have tasted the food it was amazing and the clouds were blown away.
