Fam, you know when it comes to bars in Bangalore, Koramangala hands down has got some of the best ones. And not to mention, there's always a new bar opening up every now and then. But on this list of bars in Koramangala, we are talking about the ones that won't break your bank, you can have a baller time your friends, and best of all, eat some good grub while you are at it. Save this list of best bars in Koramangala for your Friday night shenanigans as well as for weekday after work (or college) drinks.
Gilly's Eco 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: MRP Mondays and Happy Hours All Day On Draught Beer
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. They have a Build Your Own Burger menu and they also have a pizza menu that we order from most times.
Alcohol Deals: 1+1 on IMFL drinks and INR 350 for a pitcher of draught beer (both offers valid until 7 pm)
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 are what we love the most.
Alcohol Deals: Beer Buckets starting at INR 659, 2+1 on tequila shots, Happy Hours 2+1 on IMFL drinks, special shots at INR 99, and draught beer pitcher at INR 359 (all offers valid every day until 7 pm)
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 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 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 125 and Old Monk at INR 75.
Harry's Bar & Cafe
Harry's in Koramangala has a pool table, a playlist that's popping, and is the perfect hang for all your weekend night out with the squad. We recommend their apps and finger food over their more substantial mains such as burgers, North Indian, and rice and noodles. It's easier to munch on pizza, fries, and Pigs In A Blanket when you are watching the game or just having a boisterous night out.
Alcohol Deals: They have Happy Hours from Sunday to Thursday 12 noon to 9 pm where you can get Bud Magnum for INR 125 and LIT for INR 249.
The Old Fashioned Bar
Part of our best bars in Bangalore list, this bar in Koramangala serves up some of the finest cocktails that we have drank to. The bar has a dedicated drinks menu for all things Old Fashioned, and you have 1881 Old Fashioned to Tiramisu Old Fashioned to try out. There's also the Gin Basil Smash for all you gin folks. We recommend Chicken Nippat Masala, Thigh-Land Express, Malabar Beef Dry Fry, and Howrah Express for munching.
Alcohol Deals: They have MRP Tuesdays every Tuesday from 8 pm onwards on select brands.
If you want to mix drinks with fun music, this is the place to be. You got yourself DJs spinning tracks every Friday, there are comedy nights that happen frequently, and even on a weekday, we have grooved to the in-house DJ's fun playlist. You will find that on most workday evenings, the place brimming with office folks getting their drinks and come the weekend, the place is packed.
Alcohol Deals: They currently have an all you can eat and drink unlimited offer starting at INR 1,000 if you are coming in a big group (15 people minimum)
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 don't have any alcohol deals in place but they make up for that with some cool food deals starting at INR 499.
Alcohol Deals: They don't have any alcohol deals in place, but if you like draught beer, you can get a mug for INR 119.
