Bangalore Nightclubs & Pubs – Bangalore’s Pub Scene Just Got Hotter

Often referred to as the Pub Capital of India, the multicultural city of Bangalore is most famous for its nightlife. The night culture is dynamic, effervescent and cosmopolitan.

Among the many exceptional pubs and bars all across the city, HiNT is considered to be quite popular with the crowds. Encompassing two bars, two outside terraces, an inside lounge, dance floor, and a restaurant, this nightspot is set on the 5th floor of Bangalore Central Mall, providing a spectacular view of the city in all its glory and splendour.

Open from 8 pm until 11.30 pm everyday, entrance to this hotspot is absolutely free, though a cover charge is extracted from one and all. The HiNT lounge, pub and restaurant serves a wide variety of wine, whiskey, cocktails, mocktails, etc along with an extensive vegetarian and non-vegetarian food menu, which includes Chinese and Thai starters, appetizers, terrific Asian food and main courses among other things.

And while the service here cannot be considered bad, it cant even be considered first-rate. The music here ranges mainly from house to hip-hop to electro, which is completely handled by their in-house DJs. On one Saturday every month, HiNT goes global, so for those of you who are into international gigs, this is the place to be! It is said that the dance floor in the lounge is one of a kind; one that can be seen from every corner of the lounge.

The cool lasers have only made dancing even more fun here! With extremely comfy beanbags scattered everywhere, especially on the outside terraces, this is considered by some people to be one of the most romantic getaways in the city today.

However, this once sought out nighttime destination has lost some of its charm. There are some people who even consider the interiors of this lounge to be pretty dark and dingy, hardly the cosy setting that they have in mind to chill out. Its ambience, which was once considered as extraordinary, is now not so groovy or happening anymore.

The once sophisticated crowd of partygoers are no longer seen visiting HiNT as much as they used to. But hey! You sure can bump into people who are there for the sole purpose of taking advantage of the dark, stifling interiors! (which is why most women dont think of it as the safest place in Bangalore today!).

Today, the lounge owes its popularity to its variety of theme nights and the fact that it is centrally located. Even though none of the above factors pose as a serious deterrent for the party animals of namma Bangalore (since HiNT is still crowded on most days!), we sure hope that its not too late for this once preferred hotspot.

So to the management of this lounge, I saytake the HiNT!
