Here's what the average to do list looks like for Diwali: Time off work, eating yummy food, cleaning the house, having people over for dinner, decorating the porch with rangoli, front doors and windows with kandeels (lanterns), hearing neighbours celebrate with firecrackers, joining them. Right? Well for those of you visiting Bangalore, who might want to go beyond the tried and tested, or just aren't feeling the homely vibe, here's a list of five hotspots you might want to check out, around town.

The 13th Floor: For those of you not feeling the residential vibe, or those simply looking for a room with a view, you might want to head to  The 13th Floor, located on M.G Road.


As the name suggests, one of the best views in the city, this restaurant would present you a delightful dinner party on the rooftop. There's a cosy, even romantic and we're pretty sure you'll get quite the spot to enjoy the inevitable fireworks, this Diwali.

Brigade Road: Another popular shopping hub is alight with all the decorations -- the streets are bright, the shops are brighter than ever, all lit up, and people are out and about, enjoying themselves... And of course especially at the pubs.

Did we mention the pubs?

If you’re done shopping, then there’s a whole bunch of places to chill at; including the Amoeba Leisure Zone, Rex Theatre, Pratima Art Gallery, Crossword Bookstore etc.

Diwali Dhamaka Run: Those of you who are looking for something special to do can be a part of Diwali Dhamaka Run event which is scheduled for 30th October. Let's accept it – we probably need to burn off all that mithai. More details here

Rock On 2 with U Concert: Rock on! Come on – it's not every day that you can catch Farhan, Arjun, Shraddha, Purab and Shashank performing live, isn’t it? So Bangalore, gear up to meet the rockstars on 28th Oct at Phoenix MarketCity.

Phoenix MarketCity Bangalore: Even if you miss the concert, there are tons of things for you to do inside the mall. I always find this mall’s decoration so amusing that I never miss it anyway. Look at this creativity:
