Bangalore - Bars & Nightlife
The tech-savvy denizens of Bangalore might work hard but know how to enjoy themselves. The city has seen a boom in the numbers of pubs, bars and clubs. However thanks to vigilant local authorities who have imposed a 11.30 pm curfew on pubs, bars and clubs, Bangalore’s party has yet to really start. The only exceptions are 24 hour coffee shops that are serviced by some of the best hotels in Bangalore, such as Leela Palace or Pinxx. Despite this the city offers some great nights out if you plan properly. The best clubs and bars still tend to be located in the smartest hotels.
Bangalore’s most happening night spot at the trendy Park Hotel is a great place to dance to house and trance from DJ Deepak on the small dance floor. You can also chill out on the beanbags with a local Kingfisher beer.
The 13th floor is a chic, sexy 120-seater rooftop cocktail lounge where you get a large dose of the Bangalore skyline while you sip cocktails named after weapons.
Located in the luxurious Le Méridien Bangalore, Noir is up there with the best of Bangalore’s clubs playing retro and house music. The hotel is also home to the F-Bar and Lounge, a franchise of the French Fashion TV bar chain. You can snack on tasty Japanese and Korean snacks. Occasionally there are fashion shows.
NASA will bring a smile to your face with the good-looking bar staff dressed in pilot outfits. Inside looks like a space capsule and draws big crowds to a bar called the "Fuel Tank".
Bangalore’s most popular club, Purple Haze is a mecca for the city’s legions of rock and metal fans. Grab a beer and sing along to classics with the locals.
