They serve some classic cocktails and have some in-house specials such as Skyye Ale along with popular food options to keep you going for the night.

There are certain things that you should keep in mind while you are going pub hopping. Some of of our suggestions are:

  • Only go with pubs that have an alcohol license. As every pub needs a permit, be sure to check if your place has one and if not, please avoid.
  • The drinking age of Bangalore is not so very clear but the Karnataka Excise Department stipulates 21 as the drinking age. To avoid any confusion, be sure to carry your ID if you visit a pub or even purchase alcohol. Set and budget and conquer your pub hopping. You are going to be visiting multiple places and for that you will need the money in your pocket. Budget what suits you.
  • Always make sure you have a ride back home or a cab booked for your safety!

Many groups in Bangalore go pub hopping where you can socialize with new people. You might meet a friend for life or even a soulmate hopping pubs! You never know.
