Bangalore-It's India's answer to Paris, fashion capital of the east. It's India's rock capital, with the pubs hosting local bands including Iron Maiden and Deep Purple. The city has its own film fraternity known as Sandalwood! One of the greenest cities,it has a huge number of gardens and parks, with much of the flora cultivated by human efforts rather than natural vegetation. The transformation of the ‘Garden City’ to the ‘Silicon Valley’ of India has been wonderful in every aspect!

Where to Party?
Blessed with an amazing weather throughout the year, Going out is just an excuse for both the city people and the tourists too.Bangalore has some great places to either go wild or share a quiet drink. Here's a sampling of some of my favourite venues, promoters and brands that party! F Bar and Kitchen, Aqua, Skyye Lounge, Heineken Green Room Parties, Eclipse @ Leela with VIP Lounge, Obsidian @ Movenpick, Love Shack, Shimmer @ Vivanta to name a few. The party scene is huge in Bangalore and nightlife is pretty elite and happening with some of the World’s famous DJs coming down here to play and entertain their fans.

Rock Music: Another major reason that makes Bangalore one of the best metropolitan cities in India. All genres of Rock music is been acclaimed immensely here giving it a title of the Rock Capital of India.Its the only city where internationally acclaimed artists and rock groups have performed like Metallica, Bryan Adams, Elton John amongst others. Rock 'N India, Great Indian Rock, Deccan Rock and Summer Storm Festival are the primitive rock festivals in India.

Food for some is “the” reason to come and visit a particular city. Thindi Beedhi or Food Street is a must try for all the Bhukkad foodies in Bangalore or who are just looking for some lip-smacking food but in not so swanky fine dining restaurants.If you want to taste the best traditional food in the city, its this street where there are many stalls and carts. Apart from this, some of the best restaurants in Bangalore are Olive Beach, Samarkhand, Dum Pukht Jolly Nabobs, Koshy’s Jewel Box and Karavalli.

Tradition with Modernity is synonymous to Bangalore! The city has metamorphosed from a languid city of parks, bookshops, temples to a glittering IT Capital and mecca of the upwardly mobile. Malls & Supermarkets have mushroomed everywhere. Pubs, Nightclubs & bowling alleys make the streets more vibrant even as they try to wrestle out old-styled coffee shops, second-hand bookstores and neighbourhood chaiwalas. The morning is filled with the fragrance of flowers everywhere- the golden trumpets, jacaranda, gulmohar and many more. This city surely is one of the best metropolitan city in the country!
