Here Are The 7 Of The Happiest Happy Hours In Bangalore

Some last all day!

We all love a good deal, don't we? What's not to love when you can get a free beer or a free second cocktail, or even 20% off on selected items? They all count! They all make us sweat a little less when the bill arrives. They all make us want to hang out with our friends and colleagues a little more and a little longer. You can save the fine dining and splurging on expensive and exotic food on the weekends. Weekdays are about tightening the purse strings even as you loosen up... and here are the best places in Bangalore to do it.
