    MOSCOW MULE: Just an Average Pub in Koramangala

    by Jerry6570 Written Jul 2, 2013

    The feel inside was not bad. When we ordered for the Tower Beer they bought in stale beer. My friend and I were quick to point out the problem and the staff immediately understood the problem and connected a new KEG and changed our beers.
    Fancy menu cards like passport.
    The food in general was average but a bit pricey, could be improve the quality of food.
    Music was very nostalgic.
    Overall experience quite good.

  • Bangalore nightlife: Bangalore nightlife

    by socheid Updated Aug 13, 2010

    Bangalore is a city with wonderful people, some sensational food to be enjoyed and a great climate. There is no eutopia and the downside is that Bangalore nightlife is frankly dire by Western standards. State laws mean that all the bars have to be closed (and that is closed, not last orders) by 23.30 every night. There is nowhere I could find in living there for three months that would even vaguely resemble anything approaching a crazy night spot. Bangalore is a great place for the reasons that I listed above. If you want great nightlife then you are in the wrong city.

    Try something a little different this weekend during your stay in Bangalore. Every Sunday night a group of enthusiastic Salsa dance lovers ranging from novices to advanced get together at this cozy restaurant for a fun-filled night of Salsa dancing. The people are generally warm and friendly and will dance with you and even teach you a few steps if you ask nicely :) Salsa music and dancing starts at 8:30pm every Sunday night and goes on til about 11pm.

  • Khao Gulli (VV Puram): Food Streat

    by krishsubbu Written Jul 16, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Well this is not your traditional nightlife spot but yes if you want to try local street food then this is a must visit.

    The location is in a locality call VV Puram adjacent to a famous Bangalore establishment - VB Bakery - Ask anyone (locals) and they will point you in the right direction.

    You will have to walk down this street to experience the smells and visions of local food.

    You get all kinds of local food - dosas to milk shakes (with a difference) and let me tell you nothing is more than USD 1.

    Do take a local with you to get the inside view of the local dishes. Mind you - it will be very difficult to find meat dishes here.

    Life here starts post 5 pm.

    Dress Code: Anything that fancies you.

    Purple Haze: Sooth the soul

    by Doggins Written Dec 6, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Purple Haze is a pub that is very dark and plays nothing but rock music. My kind of place!
    The music is switched on at 6.30pm - and when it switches on it just sounds awesome!
    It is all in surround sound, and there is a speaker in every possible corner. They have really done a great job here

    It was a great pub but unfortunately they really annoyed me at the end...
    Throughout my stay the staff would insist on bringing more drinks. When they brought out the bill they over charged me by 100%. I guess they try to get foreigners drunk to try and rip them off. I corrected their mistake and they fixed it up....

  • Blue Bar - Bangalore: Blue-bar Bangalore review

    by Zulius Written Sep 5, 2007

    This place is not up to the mark. crowd is good and that is it. the cover charge is Rs 2000/- you can reiburse it against snacks and drinks but its not worth. The music is awful and no dance floor. Added to that its an open air bar and not very great, i can even stroll on the roads and get the same fresh air, if i wish.

    Dress Code: party wears

    13th Floor: Up above the din...

    by mrtourne Written Nov 5, 2006

    400 rupees will get you inside this lounge, where you can sip martinis or other mixed drinks, sit on a terrace or on the couches inside watching the LCD TV, check the overall city skyline, and listen to forgotten '80s music by the likes of Phil Collins, Glenn Frey, Dan Hartman and Richard Marx. You decide whether that's good or bad.

    The 400 rupees will go against drinks, so no loss there - at about 120-130 rupees each you will have to consume 3+ drinks to make it worth it, so this is not an "oh, let's hit it up for 5 minutes" kind of spot. On the other hand 400 rupees is 9 dollars, so no big whoop.

    The place is rather slick, and the crowd is nice / trendy / young, so though I do sound snarky about it (courtesy of the crapola music they chose to play that night) it is a nice joint. Definitely a touch of sophistication in the Bangalore nightlife.

    Dress Code: Nice casual - there is a doorman, and I gather they do turn away the not so nicely dressed ones.

    1912: 1912 formerly, 180 Proof

    by ChuckG Updated Dec 6, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Update Dec05 (Thanks cuppadamoksha !)

    180Proof is now closed and a new revamped lounge bar has opened there...its called 1912. Try it out !

    BEFORE: 180 Proof
    It's a dance club in the front part, a lounge at the back. Very modern and located right off.

    The place has a very high ceiling and the DJ Booth is up in the air. Quite impressive.

    The nightlife IN Bangalore stops quite early by law. Better show up early because by 11PM...things start to close.

    Dress Code: Proper attire required. Show up with girls if you don't want to sweat for a few hours outside.

    Blue Ginger aka Blue Bar: Lotsa Fun

    by cuppadamoksha Written Nov 26, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Hmmm.. This place is one of the most happening places in Bangalore . The crowd is top class. Entry is Rs 700 /- that is a cover charge . You can redeem the amount on food and drink inside . The best days to be there are Wed / Fri / Sat . Music is amazing along with fantastic women and wine ... All the rich n snooty crowd in Blore party at the BLUE BAR :)
    Tucked away in a little nook at the TAJ WESTEND ( 5 STAR HOTEL ) .Worth every Rupee you spend there. Music n booze stop at 12 every night but you can stay on until 4 am on the weekends .

    Dress Code: Wear anything hip and completely stylish or else you are gonna look completely out of place .

    PECOS: D place to be if u love retro music

    by cuppadamoksha Updated Nov 26, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Pecos is an unassuming old Pub just off Brigade Road . They play retro music only , none of the techno stuff here . The crowd is great . Not the young teeny boper kinds . Reasonably priced food . Pecos open on Sunday for the best BRUNCH u can get . It only cost Rs 50 /- and you gets tons of food :)

  • Just Another Pub: away from MG road

    by riteshu Written Dec 16, 2004

    Just Another Pub, known only as JAP is a pub like it sounds. Its a small joint on the 2/3 floor.
    Shetty the owner is an affable guy, who'll make u feel very comfy there....that explains why most of the customers are regulars.....They play soft rock to hard metal as the night progresses.
    They also serve a speciality ....its called kori roti which is eaten with chicken curry.....it is pretty spicy but ull enjoy it.
    The place can get crowded on weekends so go early to get a good table.

    Dress Code: Any casual will do.....dont over dress!!
