After a harrowing 8.5-month super-boring self-imposed house arrest due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, I finally decided to try a sanitized staycation on my birthday this year. This was no match for the last few birthdays, for instance "Birthday 2018" was spent in Bhutan, whereas "Birthday 2019" was spent on a solo trip to Chikmagaluru. Nevertheless, I was excited at the prospect of just leaving home for a weekend.
So I decided to give The Denmark Tavern a try this year, after hearing a lot about it from friends who had been there (the restaurant). While I had read up a lot about the restaurant, I found almost nothing about the hotel mentioned anywhere on the internet, apart from its history dating back to 1786, when a British innkeeper named James Parr had established the cafe/inn for European travelers.
We know how curiosity killed that cat, but does that stop one from being curious? Hell, no! So I decided I would check in to the Tavern on my birthday. I booked a package deal with a new agency (a big disaster, as I realized later), which offered a pre-booked stay+meals+sightseeing with a guide+to and fro journey in a "sanitized car."
