Bangalore has always been known for its lifestyle of partying and is famously known as the ‘pub city’. However, with the Karnataka government imposing restrictions on the various restaurants and pubs in the city, there has been a dearth of restaurants that remain open for those who have midnight cravings or are just late eaters. Below is a list of the top restaurants and parlors in Bangalore that serve such a worthy cause.

Though you will need to shell out a little extra cash at the rate of ₹2500 for 2 the food served here makes up for it all. Famous for American (especially the burgers) and finger food, you must try their non-vegetarian jumbo combo. Also, leaving without trying out their to-die-for ‘legendary 10 Oz burger’ would be a shame! Their cocktails and drinks are equally delicious.
