The one thing I love about Bangalore is how it is never too difficult to find a good place to hang out, no matter which part of the city you are in. No longer is it the privilege of just the CBD to have the best places in town in to hang out at. The Secret of Bangalore that cheekily converts to SOB is such a place. The pub has a full bar attached to it and so your favourite tipple is just an order away. Coming to the food – the 'Chana Jor Garam' is definitely an old world dish that you will like, as is the 'Chowpatty Bhel' in options of meat and vegetarian. The 'Paddu with Huli Saaru' is quite the surprise on the menu. Of course, there are the usual suspects of 'Chicken Wings', 'Dahi Ke Kebab', 'Tandoori Murgh', 'Koli Vepudu', 'Meen Polichathu' and 'Kheema Pav'. Besides the delicious Indian menu on hand, there is also the international section of the menu with the likes of 'Bruschetta', 'Cheesy Fries', and 'Signature Sliders' in varying options. Heading into main courses, you have the likes of the 'Tumkur Badanekayi Masala with Hesaru Kaalu Palya' that pays tribute to Karnataka. Going into other southern regions you have the 'Dindigul Kozhi Kari', 'Karaikudi Korma', 'Kumata Neithili Masala' and so much more. What I also love about this place is that they have a kid’s menu that goes way beyond the usual mac n cheese and Margherita pizzas. The pub goes all out on desserts and you have choices like 'Nolen Gur Sandesh Cake with Lime Custard', the 'Filter Kaapi Icecream with sponge layered Mousse' and 'Tempura Paan' as well.
Hungry souls like us are always drawn towards eateries churning out good food. In regards of gastronomy, Bengaluru is superbly blessed and has a vast landscape of fine dining establishments that tackles cuisines from across the world with aplomb.

If you desire to enjoy delicious food with few drinks in between then you should definitely check out Secret Of Bangalore, a cheeky quirky gastropub offering exceptional grub and even better ambience. The vivid faade of SOB (pun unintended!) instantly attracts your attention. Its just the kind of place you should include in your pub crawl.

There is a lot to explore. Secret Of Bangalore offers a huge variety you wont get bored of even after multiple trips. This pub has to be one of the few bars in the city to pay equal attention to its dessert section. You will be spoilt for choices. Chef infuses innovation into his desserts and gives classic desserts a modern interesting twist. Mood is always upbeat and lively at SOB. Sprawled across a vast open-aired space pierced with tree groves, the pub flows into different nooks and corners you can get lost in. Outstanding outdoor lighting in various hues, combined with beautiful light fixtures transforms this slice of Eden into a hopping pulsating nightspot. SOB is quite reasonably priced as well.
