Perhaps this is one of Bangalore's most happening spots, catering mainly to yuppies with fat wallets from Bangalore's IT boom. The place is actually a hodgepodge of restos, bars, lounges and dancefloors that provide a multifarious experience to the nightowls. One could choose to simply lounge around and chat with friends or bang heads with other dance freaks.
Its location - rooftop of some modern building - gives the place an airy (and wet and stormy during monsoons) ambiance.
Dress Code: Smart casual should do. But there is no harm in dressing up a little bit.
Bangalore is the pub city of India.. you will find lots of pubs in and around MG road and Brigade road area.. one will find pubs which play variety of music ranging from pop, hip hop, soft rock, heavy rock... purple haze is a good place for rock music lovers... one of the dissapointing thing in bangalore is that all pubs and restaurants will close well before mid-night..
Dress Code: wear anything... no dress code..
My first nights in Bangalore were quite traumatizing. I heard stories of how single guys were kept in different sections than girls (when there's any) and how the pubs were filled with 50 guys for 1 girl.
Well my first few nights made me believe it was true. First, some pubs won't let you in unless your accompanied. Then, they won't let you on the dance floor or close to it.
Fortunately, I went to the afterhours "The Club"...world class !
Although I had to go accompanied to get in "The Club", the atmosphere inside was awesome. There is a big dance floor, 2 levels, an incredibly big outdoor patio that can fits hundred or people
Dress Code: No Dress Code but must be accompanied if you're a male.
India has generally little nightlife as the term is understood in the West, although in major cities a few Western-style shows, clubs and discos are being developed. In most places the main attraction will be cultural shows featuring performances of Indian dance and music. The Indian film industry is the largest in the world, now producing three times as many full-length feature films as the USA. Mumbai is the country's 'Hollywood'. Almost every large town will have a cinema, some of which will show films in English. Music and dancing are an important part of Indian cinema. Larger cities may have theatres staging productions of English-language plays.
If u walk down the Brigade road or Mahatma Gandh road....u would find a number of good pubs. U have pubs playing different styles of music....if ur a metal freak then styx is the place u would wanna visit....if ur a rock fan listenin to the 60s and 70s music then purple haze is a great place.....u also have clubs and discotheques.....but one proiblem with this place is dat all the clubss have to shut down by 12-00.
Dress Code: casual wear with any kinda accessories if ur visiting the pubs

the atmosphere is very very different. They have a terrace with these totally huge sofas where you just have to lie back..... the music is good, not real loud like the rest of the places. They serve fusion cuisine - something like Thai Chicken with Kerala Parathas, or Chicken Manchurian with South Indian dosa and you know what - it does not taste bad.
Dress Code: Casual

No, this is not the place to be for nightlife. You can occasionaly see some localdances when you're invited. In the palace there are sometimes special shows for tourists.
