Party in Bangalore

12 after-12 party places in Bangalore

Bangalore takes the concept of ‘work harder, party harder’ quite seriously. And its credit goes to the profound cosmopolitan culture emanating from the city’s techy, geeky population. With one of the first microbreweries in the country to the trendiest lounges, the tech city of India had established a nightlife to reckon with. While the other metros are abiding by the early cut-off of 1 am for pubs and clubs, some places in Bangalore keep their doors open to the night-owls.

For those still wanting to linger around after midnight, here are 12 best places you can consider for your weekend night out.

No Limmits, New Brigade Road

The electric atmosphere, supplemented by a retro-inspired décor will definitely be in no limits. With its upbeat ambiance and pulsating music, No Limmits is one of the hip and happening weekend hangouts in the city.
