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 !

Reviewed November 25, 2012

great place for a snack after work. Good choice of food on menu, but could benefit from faster service to meet the licencing laws.

“China meets india”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

The food was soooo good. Desert topped the list - we ate this warm chocolate and ice cream. My friend had coffee and it came with these delicious chocolate balls. Off the chart!

Good old fashioned ambience and service. Loved it. At the bar or at tables was comfortable and worth a visit each evening.

“Great setting, cocktails, food and service”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

Great place to relax and sip the best cocktails in Bangalore. The service was a little over the top but everyone was friendly and helpful. The food was of a very high standard. I hope to return and view the new rooms in due course.

“drinking my whiskey as though I was a Millionaire”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

Well if you know where to go and enjoy the fine things in life there is nothing to dislike unless you pick something petty and make a big issue of it you must remember you are traveling and that is what you should enjoy.
