This is one of the coolest party places in Bangalore. Most of the fun is at the main section, but if you prefer less noise, head over to the rooftop bar where it is quieter and you are treat to splendid views of the city skyline. There is a cover charge, but you can redeem this for drinks you order. If you are craving a late night party, get here on Fridays and Saturdays. The place is open till 1 am. Music is definitely the crowd puller here.

Named for the floor of the landmark Bangalore building, Barton Center, on which it is perched, 13th Floor offers diners a panoramic view of the city, especially the Vidhan Soudha and surrounding areas, alongside excellent and innovative cocktails and food. 13th Floor is known for its potent and perfectly balanced cocktails, of which we highly recommend the 'Rosemary G&T', 'Rose and Rye', 'The Don Draper' (a mix of vodka with fresh grapefruit and rosemary), and 'The Midnight Oil' - a heady combination of coffee, dark rum, with caramel and banana notes. There is also a selection of fresh mocktails for those who do not imbibe, of which the 'Caliph’s Cooler' and 'Nukkad' are great choices.

To nibble along with your drinks, order the 'Gunpowder Egg Roast', 'Butter Garlic Parmesan' or 'Sticky Hot and Sweet Thai Sriracha'. 'Very Naughty French Fries', the 'Bon-Bon Chicken' (the establishment’s take on Chilli Chicken with 4 variants of chillies), 'Thai Crispy Beef', or the 'Super Crunchy Pork Bites'.

Places in Bangalore to Visit at Night: For Trekking

Skandagiri Night Trekking

A highly regarded Sunrise Trek or Night Trek at Skandagiri is an epic journey through strenuous terrains that is as rewarding as it is tiring. Nothing compares to the sunrise that you witness among clouds at the summit. It is an ideal one day trip very close to Bangalore. There are old ruins of the fortress of Tipu Sultan and dilapidated ancient fort ruins. That adds a haunting appeal to this trek.

Skandagiri hill which overlooks Nandi Hills is also known as Kalwarbetta or Kalavara Durga. Walking among clouds here is an experience to relish. At night, you can enjoy a bonfire and camp under the sky and marvel at the unparalleled view of the morning sun. Skandagiri is one of the most known weekend destinations from Bangalore. It is around 70 kms from Bangalore and has the best sunrise to offer. This place has always been in controversy but with new trekking permits it has become easy and legal to do Skandagiri Trek.

It is said that Tipu Sultan built it to fight against the British. Later, when Tipu Sultan lost to British it was dismantled in 1791. The base of Skandagiri Hill Trek starts from Kalwara Village of Chikkaballapur district. There is a temple on the foothills of Skandagiri known as Papagni Mutt. It is one of the oldest mutts of Karnataka. This is one of the places where trekkers from Bangalore can rest before starting the trek.

The Traffic Conundrum

If you have to reach any of the bars or pubs in the heart of the city on weekends, make sure you leave early as weekends see a lot of rush in the traffic and it usually takes much longer than usual to reach anywhere. Make sure you leave at a time before 6pm because roads get very congested after that and cabs start charging peak prices. The only way to tackle the traffic situation is to leave early.
