Top Spots

Reset Map
  • Jayamahal Palace Hotel, Nandi Durga Road Extension, Jayamahal, Bangalore, Karnataka, India

The royal family of Gondal's grand palace that's been converted to a hotel. Tucked away in a lush green belt right int he heart of the city, this heritage hotel is the perfect city getaway. have a few drinks, go for a swim or simply laze about. Whether you stay in the hotel or not, visitors are always welcome.

  • Bamboo Bazaar Bus Stop, Arunachalam Mudaliar Road, Sulthangunta, Shivaji Nagar, Bangalore, Karnataka, India

The starting point of a world stuck in time. keep walking straight down the winding road to discover some of the best tea stalls and shy shopkeepers. Known for its quaint little shops that sell old, used furniture right from doorways and windows to sofa sets, many a curio collectors stumble upon this old world once every now and then. I am yet to discover a truly worthy 'antique' shop, but the walk is interesting nonetheless.

Watch out for dung on the road while you walk along.

  • Okalipuram, Srirampuram, Bangalore, Karnataka, India

Want rolls and rolls of fabric at the cheapest rates? Head to Okalipuram. But be ready to rummage amidst a lot of dust, haggling with shop owners and cows lashing at you.

Worth a visit if you're into kitsch stuff and painstakingly customising everything around you, like me.

  • Gangotree, Palace Road, Vasanth Nagar, Bangalore, Karnataka, India

The yummiest paani puri, samosas and kachoris ever. Something every Bangalorean swears by.

  • Veena Stores, Malleshwaram, Bangalore, Karnataka, India

A roadside eatery that serves just 3-4 basic snacks. Famous mainly for their idly and chutney that just melt in your mouth, instantly.

warning: If you go after 9:am, you wont even get a crumb to eat.

  • CTR, 7th Cross Road, Malleshwaram, Bangalore, Karnataka, India

Best in the world Benne (butter) Masala Dosa and filter coffee, amidst old bangaloreans and even war veterans.

Be prepared for a lot of hustling as the place is always over crowded. But definitely worth it.

  • Savoury Restaurant, Frazer Town, Bangalore, Karnataka, India

The shawarmas take you straight to the land of deserts and belly dancers, where you can literally see a sheikh or two pulling up in their royalty. Be it a biryani or kababs, everything here is as authentic as it gets - quote unquote from a yalla yalla habibi herself.

Be prepared for poor service but a worthwhile shawarma or two.
