With the monsoon season setting in, it becomes really hard to gather the will to step outside our homes on a weekend, the only suitable way to relax seems to be a cup of hot tea. Couple this with India’s final match of the T20 World Cup, and there remain very few reasons for which you would be willing to put on your best clothes and go out.

However, Bangalore is one of the most happening cities in the country at any given time, its cosmopolitan character seamlessly blending in with its cultural and historical significance. It is the perfect blend of modernity and tradition, with the long lines at Rameswaram Café on a Sunday a testament to the continuing commitment to ensure that the city’s favourite things do not change. We bring to you a guide to what is happening in the city this weekend and where you can go for a unique experience.
