The area
Address
Neighborhood: Shivajinagar/Commercial Street
Shivajinagar is one of the most bustling neighbourhoods located in central Bangalore, known for its shopping bargains for every mood and style. Revolved around the heritage Russell Market that provides a mélange of sights, sounds and smells, a visit here is a great exploration that takes you in lanes with vendors selling antiques furniture, flowers, meat and freshest produce to tea especially Suleimani chai and meaty street food in the evenings. No trip is complete without a visit to Commercial Street that is lined with shops selling fabric, silver and gold jewellery, clothes and trinkets. As you shop, eat and walk around these busy streets, do take a stroll at some of beautiful old temples and a Gothic-style St. Mary’s Basilica in the neighbourhood.

    Commercial Street - One of the Best Street shopping in Bangalore
    The commercial Street in Sivaji nagar is one of the best places for street shopping in Banglore. Especially for women. A large category of Clothing, accessories, jewellery, Footwear were available for a reasonable price. Particularly I would recommend buying Footwear and Jeans there.

    The old Bangalore
    This was our trip back to Bangalore in 10 years so the expansion of the city and changes were very noticeable. this was once the heart of shopping in the city, but no more. DO go to get a feel for the old city - no longer as bustling as it once was, but still worth visiting.

    It was awesome
    Spent an evening on Commercial Street but needed days or a week to take it all in. Lively, crowded, tons of shops and street food. Be ready to move your feet and eat a delicious treat!

Commercial Street is the heart of shopping paradise in the garden city. The large area covering shops on both sides of the roads makes it even more interesting place along with street food options on the road. Great place for bulk shoppers and anyone can enjoy this shopping paradise mostly in the evening.
Commercial Street has shops from A to Z brands, fast food chain options and very well connectivity to nearby places along with transportation needs.

This shopping destination overflows with beautiful western wear like tops, dresses, skirts etc. Footwear too is available. The prices seem really low. I picked some excellent ready-made saree blouses here

If you are a shopper this is the place for you. The variety is indescribable and vast. Service in shops like Mysore Saris and Aarha latter for shalwar sand fabric was excellent. The patience of pulling out dozens of fabric to show clients is I think only found in India. Be prepared to walk though. Myriads if streets criss crossing offering Jewellery shoes sandals bags and very good food as well. Marvelous experience

Almost all big brand store are here. Very haphazard manner the way street is developed over the years.

Over crowed during evening time.

Many city in India having far better shopping area in terms of infrastructure. Not very interesting.

First place in Bangalroe that reminded me of Delhi--the streets, the clothes, the sounds! It's a ladies' heaven and I can't imagine one product-- generic or branded(not luxury) that one can't find here.

If you like shopping and you are in Bangalore, this is the place you should not miss. Please note this road has serious traffic/parking issues. Make sure you are aware where you vehicle is parked.
