15 Reasons Why You Should Never Move Out Of Bangalore

Navya posted on 15 December

Bangalore is bae! But every once in awhile, when we are fed up of the potholes and unending traffic, we sigh and wish we were somewhere else. For those times, here are fifteen reasons never to leave this glorious city of ours.

The Amazing Weather

This a no-brainer and is what most people love about Bangalore. Unlike other cities, we get to remain {almost} cool as cucumbers through the year. Make the best of Bangalore’s impeccable weather by chilling out at al-frescco cafes and rooftop restaurants.

Our Unique Museums

Where is India’s first music museum? Bangalore, of course! And if you’d like to give your grey cells something to think about, we recommend a visit to the country’s only brain museum.

We Are The Craft Brewery Capital

Bangaloreans love affair with beer is well-known. In the 90s, we were crowned the pub capital of India {here’s a list of budget bars in the city}. And, now, in the 21st century, our streets are dotted with craft breweries that dole out everything from pale ales to stouts. Of course, if you aren’t into them, you could always settle for a Kingfisher beer, also a Bangalore invention.  

Eat All You Can At Our Military Hotels

Hole-in-the-wall they may be, but Bangalore’s military hotels sure do pack a punch. Popular for their meaty yet super-affordable menus, many of them have their origins in pre-Independent India. From flavourful mutton and chicken pulaos to mutton chops, chicken fry, and ragi mudde – Bangalore’s military hotels guarantee deliciousness.

We Are A Book Lovers’ Paradise

Can’t get enough of books? Then, Bangalore is the best place to be! Here, Blossoms is a beloved institution where you can drown in books from every era and from every genre. And it does not stop there. We also have Bookworm, Goobe, Sapna and a whole parade of bookstores that specialise in books.

There’s A National Park Right Here In The City

Yes, we realise that other cities can boast of a national park. But not many of them come with a zoo attached as well as butterfly park and the chance to go on safari rides. One of the city’s best-known picnic spots, the Bannerghatta National Park is loved by the kiddies and also the ones who are kids at heart.

You Are A Hop, Skip, And Jump Away From The Coolest Hill Stations

If Bangalore isn’t cool enough for you, then, there’s no need to fret! You can zoom off to Coorg that’s just a few hours away and so is Ooty. There’s also Horsley Hills, Chikmagalur, and BR Hills.

Or You Could Chill Out At Our Parks

If you’d like a to catch a breath of fresh air, you don’t even have to skip town. Just stop by Lalbagh and Cubbon Park – the city’s largest lung space. You can just laze under a tree here or participate in a host of community-centric activities or check out historic landmarks. 

The Hippest Restaurants First Open Shop Here

Toit, Monkey Bar, and Social — were first introduced to the world by this amazing city of ours. Bangalore boasts of a bustling F&B scene, no doubt. But over the years, we have become a testing ground, an incubator of sorts, for the country’s best restaurants and pubs. This, of course, only goes on to consolidate our reputation as the startup capital of India.

Our Theatre Scene

Ranga Shankara is widely recognised as one of the best theatre spaces in the country. From Shakespeare to Karnad, you can see the works of the finest playwrights come to life here. Bangaloreans also turn into culture vultures at Jagriti Theatre, Alliance Francaise, Chowdiah Memorial Hall, and Atta Galata.

NICE Road Is Really Nice

When you want to escape the potholes, all you need to do is cruise along the very nice, NICE Road. Surrounded by hillocks and greenery, you can cruise through this road with the wind in your hair and the world at your feet.

    Kammanahalli Is A Melting Pot Of Cultures

    Kammanahattan surely does live up to its name! Once a sleepy neighbourhood, the Kammanahalli-Kalyan Nagar area is now a lively hub and is particularly loved by expats from Korea, the Middle East and Africa. So, you can sample authentic foods from foreign locales {the shawarmas are a particular favourite of ours}. There are also plenty of shops that sell imported food items and goodies.

    We Serve Delicious Cups Of Coffee

    Coffee junkies are spoilt for choice in this land of ours. Whether you prefer tumblers brimming with frothy, filter kaapi or choose to sip on a hipster latte at a roastery near you, Bangalore has it all.

    We’ve Embraced A Host Of Food Cultures

    Sure, our masala dosas are delicious. But that hasn’t stopped us from welcoming other food cultures. Bangalore’s restaurant scene is made up of exciting options offering Korean delights, North Eastern delicacies, and Japanese creations. We even have a Peruvian-Japanese restaurant, guys!

    Denims For Everyone At Vashi’s

    Where else in the country {or the world} can you score a perfectly fitting pair of jeans at pocket-friendly prices? Also, sizes are not a problem here which is why Vashi’s deserves extra love.
