    This brewpub has stand-up and open mic comedy nights every Thursday. Mostly featuring artistes from Bangalore Comedy Club {a group of stand-up comedians from the city}, the event lets you sit back with a mug of beer and enjoy a laughter-filled evening, or even take up the stage and unleash your fun side.

    Urban Solace

    Urban Solace

    Ulsoor, Bangalore

    Known to be Bangalore’s first and longest playing stand up and open mic comedy night, LOL @ Urban Solace {every Wednesdays} has been on for nearly five years now. Having been the starting point for artistes such as  Kanan Gill, Vamsidhar Bhogaraju and Biswa Kalyan Rath, we think this might be the perfect way to give yourself an entertaining mid-week break.

    When: Wednesdays, 8pm onwards

    The Local

    The Local

Laugh yourself silly with acts by comics from Bangalore Comedy Club or talented patrons of the pub. Throw in a drink or two and you’ve got yourself a perfect Monday, we think.

    When: Mondays, 8.30pm onwards
