A National Geographic explorer, a friend of mine and I hosted dinner to visiting college students from Georgia, USA before their flight to USA form Bengaluru. American College kids out of their comfort zone spent a week interacting with the Mahout community, Coorg, after which they were ready to bounce back to US. Bowring Institute a classic hangout for Britishers was nostalgic. The food was cheap and ambiance really reminiscent of the British era but poorly run. A good place to spend a nice evening with friends, the institute serves both Vegetarian and Non-vegetarian along with juice bar, Chat corner and an Ice Cream stall. This place could be managed better in preserving a heritage site, however, a lot needs to be done in terms of service and quality of food, taste and maintaining hygienic atmosphere.

I went to this club's restaurant with my wife's friend who happened to be a member. The food was awesome. Simply superb and economical too. The location is also very close to Brigade road, MG Road and commercial streets.

This place is very close to the MG road metro station,one of the terminal halts of Namma Metro.its is in close proximity to the busy streets like the Brigade road and Commercial street.
There is awesome dinner with outdoor seating,the food is great and the bill won't shock you!!!

How to get there:
From the Airport: The Vayu Vajra bus is the best way to get to the Airport(Rs.197/person) , it has a stop in front of the compound,and a bus time table is erected by the stop.You can even get an airport taxi.

From the Railway Station:It will cost you about 200 bucks if you take a rickshaw OR the better option is to get down at Baiyyapanahalli Railway station and take the Metro to MG road(Rs.15)

Bowring is just a few meters from MG Road Metro Station.

PS:MG road is a abbreviation for Mahatma Gandhi Road.You will never get lost as there is constant announcement regarding the upcoming stop.

Had been to this place quite a few times and nothing has changed over the years. Same laid back attitude, slow service, OK food , but the major plus point is the location - bang on MG Road center of city, the food and booze prices are cheaper you can relax and take your time to eat, drink adn talk. You need to be member or you need to go with a member. Its real cheap to rent this place for functions and activities .
