Welcome

MG Road is Chai Pani’s very own mindblasting Bar & Lounge, located just around the corner at 19 Wall Street in downtown Asheville.

Head barkeep Jesse Ratliff keeps the focus on the art of the craft cocktail, and the team balances technique & tradition with a level of creativity & innovation that’s been written up from Food & Wine Magazine (twice!) to The Times of India.

With acclaimed cocktails, local craft beers, eclectic wines from around the world, innovative & fun food, warm hospitality, and a stylish yet intimate and comfortable setting, MG Road is redefining the idea of the neighborhood bar.


Punk Wok

On Monday & Tuesday nights, MG Road is taken over by PUNK WOK – the latest pop-up by James Beard nominated, nationally acclaimed food mash-up wizard, Chef Elliott Moss.

We can only describe it as “vietnamese-chinese-japanese-thai-southern-fusion-punk-rock’n'roll-cooking”. The lines may be long, but the food is epic, the music is raucous, the bar is in full character, and nowhere else can you have this much fun on a Monday or Tuesday night.
