The perfect hangout destination

Like every other major city, Bengaluru also has the MG Road and it is without a doubt, the central attraction with all kinds of things to do around.There's plenty to shop, eat and drink.

Very nice place to hang out

Well-known place for shopping, eating, pubs, discotheque. At least once you should visit this place when you are in Bangalore. Posh place surrounded by many shops, malls, church and a big library. When you are here keep your pocket safe as, it's a costly place. There is a metro station near by which is convenient to travel.

Worth a visit

I visited bangalore in 1998. Then there were lot of stores selling clothes which had universal appeal. Now all stores have vanished. Malls everywhere. Motorist have a honking fever. People casually throw trash around without bothering to put in litter bins (which were very few).The Govt shop for handicrafts is good. Worth a visit.

Awesome restaurant at MG

I had gone on Valentine's Day with my husband to MG road. We had gone to 13th floor that's a nice and expensive restaurant on MG road I believe. Food and ambience was awesome as expected. If one wants to have food with peace. I would suggest this place.

Oldest known High Street of Bangalore

A beautiful street connecting to Brigade road and Chinnaswamy Cricket Stadium. Many reputed hotels and showrooms are located here. It also has a Metro station. Koramangala and Indiranagar is just 5-6kms from here. UB City and Lavelle Road are very near too.
