No no, this is not a post about the Instagrammable cafes in the town. This is more like, you are on the road or probably meeting friends over for drinks and then you suddenly notice something gorgeous and you are like “Hey, let me Instagram this!” Agreed some of them aren’t quite on the road, but hey, these 15 Instagrammable spots in Bangalore will get you on the road and start ‘Gramming instantly.
15 Of The Most Cool, Quirky And Colourful Instagrammable Spots In The City
Bangalore’s the first city in the country to get a logo of its own. A crowdsourced design, the Bengaluru red and black logo is made up with the English and Kannada script. The one at Cubbon Park, however, features collages of various aspects of Karnataka's architecture and festivals. It’s one for the feed!
Part of our rooftop bars and stunning view lists (read about them here and here), Skyye is the perfect spot to get those landscape shots of the city’s skyline. At 16 floors high, it also means unobstructed views for as far as the eye can see. With Cubbon Park nearby, one side overlooks the lush green space (and at night it’s like a dark carpet with street lights dotting it), the other in the CBD that comes alive with all sorts of lights, you’ve got yourself a picture worth clicking and sharing away!
MG Road Metro Station Entrance
Perhaps the best of the street artwork done during the St+Art festival, the Church Street entrance of the MG Road Station is perhaps one of the most Instagrammed spots in Bangalore. Although the Domino’s board spoils the artwork, we are sure you can get an angle where the board doesn’t show up.
Built over a century ago in the Tudor-style of architecture that’s reminiscent of French and English castles, the Bangalore Palace is one of Bangalore’s most Instagrammed locales (you should check out our Instagram page here). The Maharaja’s courtyard downstairs is bright and vivid with a brilliantly colourful Azulejo tiled-bench and a fountain to go with it. We suggest coming in early, like just before the sun sets for the perfect Instagram moment.
Uru Brew Park
Uru Brew Park is Bangalore's first brew park located in J P Nagar. The massive space can be split into four parts - brewery, cafe, bistro and park with chic and minimalistic decor. The space also has a gin garden and private barbeque section that is great for parties.
KR Flower Market
Unlike other places, you need to arrive at KR Flower Market quite early as 4 am because that’s when the whole place gets off to a colourful start with all kinds of flowers. It’s #FlowerPower with the streets all lined up with vendors selling orchids, marigolds, jasmines, gerberas and roses.
The Bohemian House
The Bohemian House is a heritage property in Richmond Town that is a co-working space, space for events and even has a cafe inside. They host workshops, flea markets and food festivals in the huge courtyard that overlooks a waterfall and a hammock. This spot is truly Instagram worthy!
Butterfly Park In Bannerghatta National Park
Glasshouse In Lal Bagh
The Glass House in Lal Bagh is modelled after the Crystal Palace in London and it hosts the bi-annual flower show here where you can see some of the most beautiful floral designs and displays. The bi-annual show is held every Independence Day and Republic Day, but don’t let that stop you from capturing the beauty of the house in the evenings, especially during sunsets.
One of Bangalore's oldest and most iconic man-made lake, Sankey Tank can entertain the whole family be it for photography, fitness, or street food. You can go boating in the lake, jog or take a walk on the tracks around it as well.
Dive Bar’s theme is that of water, so there are a lot of shades of blue in the decor, so much so that it’s like being in Ibiza or even Santorini. But what easily steals the spotlight is the unique dance floor, where fish swim about underneath 24 mm thick glass panes. That definitely should make it to your Insta feed!
Blossom Book House
Obscure Sanskrit dictionaries, piles of fiction precariously stacked away, old books of sheet music, travelogues, rare comic books, manga, and even LPs — plenty to Instagram and of course buy! Blossom Book House is an institution that needs no introduction and take it from us when we say that whenever we post about this good old second-hand book store, the likes are far too many!
The wallpaper made of Arnold Schwarzenegger and pineapples gives you an idea about the eccentricity of Sly Granny. All kinds of knick-knacks adorn the walls and the stairway that leads to the upstairs is lined up with mad, mad art. Oh, and come evenings, the upstairs section with its rooftop section gets all dreamy with twinkling lights. Hello to date nights being documented effortlessly!
The Wishing Chair
Inspired by the world of End Blyton, The Wishing Chair looks oh-so-pretty that it looks like it’s straight out of someone’s Pinterest board! Playful and whimsical vibes aplenty, each and every element of the space is highly Instagrammable. In fact, their vegetarian cafe The Mad Teapot Cafe is on our list of Instagrammable cafes in town.
National Gallery of Modern Art (NGMA)
Located in the restored, heritage Manikyavelu Mansion on a sprawling 3.5 acres of land, the NGMA presents itself a pictureque landscape with well-maintained grassy lawns, ponds, and huge trees. That’s just the outside. Inside, the two-storeyed colonial-style residential building you’ve got yourself over 500 plus modern art to gawk at. Plenty for the feed? Without doubt, yes!
