10 Cocktail Bars In Bangalore You Have To Try If You Want To Make This Weekend Forgettable

Tripoto

If you are one of those looking for something more to beat the hot and sticky summer heat than a straight-up whiskey or a chilled beer, then this list of the best cocktail places is for you. While it's relatively easier to find the traditional drinks, very few places mix the perfect cocktails that not only pack a punch, but also push you to order a second.

To make it a little bit easier, I've put down the cost of a Long Island Iced Tea (LIIT) – only the most popular cocktail ever – at all 10 restaurants to help you draw a comparison. So bookmark this list and your summer is sorted!
