15 Places To Enjoy Nightlife In Bangalore To The Max!

The Garden City of India also doubles as the pub central housing some of the grooviest party destinations. Apart from being a hub of IT professionals, Bangalore has stupendous nightlife scenarios. It has the best dance floors for you to groove on. There are many pubs and clubs which take the duty of keeping you entertained after the sundown till a little past midnight. Abiding by the early curfew i.e. 1 AM it is recommended for you to immediately turn over to nightclubs and restaurants so that you can enjoy for a bit longer. After Mumbai, Delhi and Go, it is Bangalore's turn to leave you spellbound with its vivacious nightlife. From underground watering holes to live karaokes to microbreweries to posh nightclubs, Bangalore has it all! Let's take a look

A humongous space, quite literally. Superb craft beers with the added bonus of an electric atmosphere. Wrought iron motifs, stained glass windows and a fantastic poolside bar for the romantics - the lovely open-air ambience of this place is to die for. Make sure you try their signature nachos and reserve yourself a table as it gets jam-packed even on weekdays.

Old school pubbing fans, get yourselves a reservation ASAP! Possibly the most popular watering hole in Indiranagar, Toit is a classic microbrewery with a top-notch, stylish English-themed ambience. With six types of brew, the most popular has to be the basmati blonde, but one can go for darker or bitter options too. They also introduce seasonal flavours like the pumpkin beer on Halloween and a spicy ginger-and-cinnamon infused brew for Christmas. This super cool brewpub even allows tasters. So gang up and hit the bar so that you can have a sip of all their brewed beers in the first round and then order as per your liking. And do not miss the baked nachos while you're there.
