The year is ending and with that comes a bucket list of things that you need to do before it’s 2020. One such bucket list is how many new venues and culture spots you have hit this year. Bangalore is a hub of culture and what better way to show for it than the new community groups and venue spaces that have opened up in 2019. With places like Bangalore International Centre that now cater to a variety of events and communities, these are our favourite cultural spots along with some communities who are bringing something new to the table.
