General Information

    With it's tree-lined streets, green parks and California weather, Bangalore may surprise given it's reputation as the Silicon Valley of India. All that tech development has sprung up on the city's perimeter. In its heart, Bangalore retains its patchwork of low-rise neighborhoods, heritage buildings, traditional markets, parks, lakes and human-scale temples and churches.

    Bangalore also lives up to its reputation as a friendly, welcoming city for visitors from around the world. English is largely spoken and an undiminished affection for its British colonial heritage is evident everywhere you look. There's also a bit of gay life for visitors to experience, including weekend parties that are organized on a regular basis. As with other major cities in India, middle class and upscale gays are using the Net and smart devices to connect. As a visitor, you'll find a lot of ready fans who are educated, employed and know what they like.

    • Koshy's (Indian and international) UTOPIA VERIFIED JAN 2024
        48 St Mark's Rd, Utopia Map

        This fabulously authentic throw-back is, unsurprisingly, a popular hangout for the city's in-the-know gays and lesbians. Schmancy dining room on one side and casual, no frills diner serving lost-in-time comfort food on the other. Where else can you (and the Queen of England apparently) get an egg flip, a chutney sandwich or a mango Melba these days?
