Nightlife in Namma Bengaluru !!!

With the Bangalore population being a predominantly youthful one, the Nightlife in Bangalore is bound to be scintillating. While it is mostly made up of IT professionals and students, the generous sprinkling of expats add an exotic touch to the party crowd that scorches the dance floors of every discotheque in Bangalore every single night ( I guess the crowd here does not discriminate between weekdays and weekends ). Though Bangalore has a large number of night clubs /discotheques, the 'work hard party harder' chanting set ensures that most of them are packed to the maximum. Read on for my picks among the best night clubs in Bangalore -

One of such places that gets a thumbs up from me is Toit. Situated on the prime location of 100 ft Road, Indiranagar, it is a brewpub that serves amazing beer (including some freshly brewed stuff) and some great food ( the menu is mostly Italian ). Needless to say, it is a must visit for all beer lovers. Some of the popular drinks served here are Tintin and Toit Red. Even the cocktails are crazy and very good too. For example I tried one that had pani puri added to it and it was just out of this world. Do remember to team up the drinks with the special pizza and the chicken wings. Though on the expensive side, one can easily end up paying more than Rs 2000 for a meal for two.

Once done with the drinks and the food, do hang around soaking in the pulsating energy of the crowd that haunts this place. It is preferable to go in a large group ( plus nobody minds if you tag a few kids along with you ) and enjoy the amazing feel of Toit. With live music being an added attraction of this brewpub, there is a performance by Monkey Temple (from Kathmandu) scheduled for 29th March, 2015.

Another crowd favorite is the Hard Rock Cafe which is situated at a stone's throw from the bustling hub of M.G. Road. It is a state-of-the-art cafe that also displays memorabilia from rock legends and contemporary artists. Though on the more expensive side, this place is always packed to capacity and hence I would recommend reserving a table in advance. Though the grey stone exteriors along with the neon sign that reads 'Hard Rock Cafe' are distinctive enough , the interior which is divided into three distinct areas is quite massive. There is a restaurant, an open courtyard and a bar which are somehow seamlessly integrated. One can get almost everything ranging from fruit juices to coffee to beer to cocktails over here. The food consists of sandwiches, burgers, nachos and most of the Indian starters. Do visit this place for the feel of some good old fashioned American rock'n'roll. And in case I forgot to mention it, this is the very place in which the item song  'Dhat Teri Ki'  (starring Imran Khan and Esha Gupta) from the movie 'Gori Tere Pyar Mein' was shot.

If you happen to shake a leg or even let your hair down in any one of these happening places, do share your experience on this page :) !!!
