Make those drinks more worth their while as happy hours reign supreme at our pick of watering holes across Bangalore. Bring on the after-work (or during) drinks and cocktails at half-price, we say.



Known for their cocktails (try any of their Margaritas or Mojitos), this place is great to kick back after a day at work. And making it better is their buy-one-get-one-free offer on IMFL and cocktails. Running from 4pm to 8pm on weekdays, they extend this all night on Fridays. Plus, retro music to set the mood.

Where: Indiranagar, Orion Mall and Phoenix MarketCity

When: Monday to Thursday, 4pm to 8pm and Fridays, 4pm till closing.

The Big Kahuna

The Tiki Gods really must love Bangaloreans or else we couldn’t pretend to be sitting on some Polynesian island sipping cocktails out of coconuts. And that too getting a free drink or cocktail with every one you pay for all week long from 4pm until 8pm. The deal work only for IMFL and selected cocktails but once you relax on the wicker sofas, it won’t make a difference!

13th Floor

Ideal to watch the sun go down, this one is a bit of a brooders’ corner and fits the bill for a quiet evening. Lasting only from 5pm to 7pm, they knock off 30 per cent off your bill on selected drinks. So be sure to ask exactly what the day’s deal is rather than not be very happy at 7pm. The view however, is free anytime.

Tavern at the Inn

Beers don’t cost too much to begin with here, so anything knocked off your bill is really a treat! So instead of pints, opt for the pitchers of beer here and get one free. Half-price deals apply for other alcohol but beer is the way to go at this English-style pub. We love that besides the 2pm to 4pm weekday bonus, they offer the same on weekends from 4pm to 8pm.

Where: Hotel Museum Inn, 1 Museum Road, near Hotel Empire
