Description: The Polo Club is a classic pub with an alfresco ambience. One of a kind in Bangalore and a perfect reflection of the garden city! It is open, fresh, warm and very lively, allowing guests to take in the gorgeous climes. DECOR The walls are adorned with vintage photographs of the Raj era depicting scenes from the stately game of Polo. Rich use of leather, wood and stained glass lends the bar a warm and lived in hue. It has breathtaking views of the garden in the hotel and the cool breeze which adds to the evening drink and the fresh sunshine which brightens the mornings and the afternoons. It has live entertainment in terms of a wonderful solo band who strums your favourite retro and popular tunes each evening amongst flickering candle light and quaint lamps. The appeal of this bar is its alfresco feel. The seating accentuates from the warm indoors to the verandah under a gentle shade and the portico under the open sky. Each area gives one a unique feeling. The indoor relives an English bar with rich leather sofas, rosewood chairs with wicker finish and wood flooring . All adorned with lithographs and photos of the game of Polo from the Raj era. The verandah is ideal for the alfresco feel. It allows the perfect vantage point to enjoy the serene view of the gardens. Enjoy the open air feel with the perfect shade provided by the patio and the comfortable wicker work chairs giving the ideal touch for a great time over a few cocktails or wine. The outside portico almost makes you feel you are in an elegant picnic in an English garden.. All of this matched with Bangalore pleasant weather.. Irresistible !

The bar menu is good, the staff fun to talk with and they mix a good cocktail. What more do you need?

“I wished to have a proper English afternoon tea,”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2010

but they do not serve that in this restaurant. So I was a little surprised. However the food and service was good, I could sit outside in the nice Bangalore wheather and enjoyed the garden view. The whole hotel looks "normal" Oberoi style, very luxurious very attentive, therefore I do think it is some kind of a drawback that I could not be served afternoon-tea. Still it was a pleasant meal in lovely surroundings.
