Take A Walk At The Adugodi Police Grounds

Koramangala has its fair share of parks and lung spaces but what we love about the hood are the tree-lined lanes and scenic spots you often stumble across. Discovered on one such drive through the area, there’s an entire stretch of road right opposite ear DYU Art Cafe {yet another reason to head here!}, near the Adugodi Police Grounds. Flanked by huge trees and often devoid of other vehicles, this is where you can take a leisurely stroll with your gang or cycle away with the wind in your hair.

Where: Opposite DYU Art Cafe, 23 MIG, KHB Colony, Koramangala 5th Block, Koramangala 8th Block

Book readings to workshops, and plays to storytelling for kids, these folks bring together all things art and culture in the city. Read more about it here.

Hit Up Landmark

The only Landmark bookstore in the city should be reason enough to trek to Koramangala, we think. Once you’re done browsing through the new releases, classics and best-selling tomes here {they often have offers on books}, the place has a well-stocked movies and music section to occupy your time. Plus, their sections on graphic novels and stationery are highlights too. Then, perhaps, the stationery, games and sports goodies will convince you to stay a bit longer. Booklovers, keep an eye out for their book launch events which have seen the likes of Naseeruddin Shah to Amish Tripathi releasing their works here.
