It is not surprising that our dynamic city has a plethora of hidden wonders to offer in every nook and corner. With this guide, we focus on one of Luru’s most cosmopolitan locales that offers everything from budget shopping and entertainment to luxury apartments and delectable cuisines. Yes, we are talking about Koramangala, so start planning your day out with our handy guide!
Get your dose of culture
An art and cultural hub, Atta Galatta is located at 134, KHB Colony, 5th Block, Koramangala. A delightful place for literature lovers or bookworms in general, as they have a collection of over 10,000 books! They even have books in all regional languages available for your reading pleasure. Added to this, Atta Galatta organises events on a regular basis such as poetry/book reading and storytelling.
Test your skills with some brain and brawn
In the mood for some exciting activities that challenge both – your mind and body?Koramangala is filled with offbeat activities and games that you can enjoy by yourself, with your significant other, or even as a group with your buddies. The Riddle Room is a live escape room that takes you on a physical adventure in 60 minutes. A similar experience at Breakout also makes for a fun visit. Alternatively, at Dice and Dine, you can take your pick from over 400 board games and huddle up over your favourite games while sipping on a hot/cold cuppa. If you are a fan of good ol’ blowing games with a mug of beer on the side, head to Blue Moustache (image above). Besides their offer of a free mug on 2 rounds of the game, they also keep the ambiance lively with their acoustic and karaoke nights on the weekends. Or if you’re feeling a little extra, try a kick boxing session at Hyper Monkey, a game of laser tag at Iamgame, or a simulated flight experience at Flight 4 Fantasy!
