Pub culture in Bangalore is as central to life in the city as the traffic and the parks. For a city that takes its brewed beer and Friday nights very seriously, it’s no surprise that there are a great number of places you could visit with your friends for a fun night out. Here’s a quick list of some of our favourite drinking spots in Bangalore.

Arbor Brewing Company

Their in-house brewery and the wide variety of beers on offer make Arbor a prime watering hole. This spot is located in the centre of the city and is incredibly popular, so make sure to get there early and a grab a table. Order the tasting menu to get a sense of the different beers available, and decide which flavour will be yours for the night.

Kitty Ko

If sit-down spots and beer all night sounds boring to you, Kitty Ko might be more your speed. This high-energy rooftop bar hosts some of the best electronic gigs in town. It’s also one of the most inclusive spots in the city. Expect drinks, dancing and one hell of a party.

The Permit Room

Your regular cocktails with a South Indian twist. The Permit Room has a quirky charm to it, with interiors done up to mimic old-school local clubs. Great for a change of scene, from their inventive food and drink to their unconventional ambience.
