If you're looking to live like a local in Bangalore and not just do terrible tourist stuff while you're here, this is the guide for you.

A lot of people visit Bangalore and ask for advice on where to eat, what to drink, what to do and where to stay. I'm born and raised in Bangalore and I feel like I have at least some authority to tell people the best places to do all of these things.

Consider this document your ever-growing guide to Bangalore, what to do here, the neighbourhoods to visit and the places to eat.

I guess you could consider this a guide for people visiting, and wanting to avoid the awful tourist parts of Bangalore, or you could use it as a reference if you’re thinking of moving here.

If you have ideas, suggestions, or feedback, please add them as comments! It’s a living document, and some bits aren’t done. I probably made mistakes too. Forgive me.
