Eat, Drink And Be Merry At The Best Bars In Koramangala That Won't Break The Bank
Gilly's 104 Bar
Arguably you could say most of Koramangala spend their time drinking here. And why wouldn't they, since they got some mad deals on alcohol throughout the week. Their playlist is filled with crowd favourites, trending, and chartbusters, and their service is quite smooth on most days. A dance floor, live sports screenings, and outdoor space make Gilly's one of our favourites too. The grub is a mix of everything from finger food, bar bites, and substantial North Indian mains.
Alcohol Deals: Watch out for their Bogo 1+1 offer on all drinks.
The Local - Terrace Drinkery
Our go-to adda for live sports screenings and playing pool, The Local has a rooftop setting too. If you are coming with your boisterous squad, we recommend the rooftop, but if you are looking for a quiet night or even date night, the first floor is your space. Binge from their delectable selection of burgers and pizzas as you sip through (or chug) your favourite drinks.
Alcohol Deals: Choose 2+1 on draft beers and 1+1 on IMFL liquor.
House Of Commons
House Of Commons will lure you in with its pocket-friendly alcohol prices, and you will stay all till closing time since the ambience there is like that of a proper bar. Music playing in the background, telly showing some sports match, and a bar bites menu that's filled with winners such as onion rings and Andhra Chilli Chicken (what we love the most). With three levelled seating and affordable beer, this place offers ample solace for your squad.
Alcohol Deals: Happy hours till 7pm that include 1+1 on towers and tequilla, 2+1 on other beverages.
A list of best bars in Koramangala, and if we leave out Sathya's then there will be a riot. But we haven't and let's drink to that. Of course, regular patrons will notice that they have upped the price and while we are complaining a bit, it's still an institution. Their updated menu, especially that starter section has everything priced between INR 20 and INR 300, with our picks being Mutton Pepper Dry and Lemon Vegetables. We stick to beer here, Kingfisher Premium that too, even though they have cocktails and shooters on the menu.
Alcohol Deals: No deals but a bottle of Kingfisher Premium costs around INR 150. That's the cheapest alcohol on the menu.
A homage to the old laid back times of Bangalore, Bob's Bar is where you should head to for ridiculously cheap alcohol and delish food from all around southern India, especially the city. You'll enjoy the bar for its lively atmosphere (it's packed by 6 pm!), open-air seating and maybe you'll even bump into some old-timers and listen to tales of yore from other Bobs.
Alcohol Deals: None, but they have Kingfisher Premium at INR 135 and Old Monk at INR 85. With alcohol so affordable and ambience so nice, do you actually want offers?
B-Hive is almost hidden in plain sight but frequented by all the office folks in the area, and it's mainly for the Desi Nights every Friday and club music on Saturdays. They have a good deal on alcohol and also some cool food options with appetizers starting at INR 99. The cave like ambience with its modern furnishings also add to the cozy chill vibe of the place.
Alcohol Deals: 1+1 on alcoholic beverages till closing time.
Avon Bar and Kitchen
College students march on to this place as though it's their second home (many do believe so) mainly because of its affordable alcohol and welcoming vibe. Shady but giving out a welcoming warmth at the same time, you can sip on alcohol available in dirt cheap prices(arguably amongst the cheapest bars in the city). Groove to their classic bollywood number or have your favourite songs played out as you munch on their lemon chicken.
Alcohol Deals: None but you can get a 30ml for as low as INR 42! Nope, no jokes.
Konians Bar and Restaurant
Another gem close to Forum Mall, this place serves up alcohol and bar snacks in a jiffy. Ask the helpers for their specials and what's best and they will set you up with spirits that will ensure a good evening. There's two floors of seating and the ambience is airy, with your usual chairs and tables. Flock the place with a group of friends and drink there or choose to take some alcohol back home from their MRP joint. Masala Fries as the winner for their snacks.
Alcohol Deals: None but you can get a 30ml for as low as INR 80.
