Known for its incredible architecture, religious temples, dynamic culture and a lot of world heritage sites, Bhubaneswar has something to offer for everyone. But little do people know even in this culturally cantered land, when the Sun sets, Bhubaneswar becomes the City Of Night. You can say the city doesn’t have a great life as it is more of a commercial city. Being a commercial city, it does offer a reasonably good nightlife experience. Obviously, it’s not up to the standards of Delhi, Mumbai, and Bangalore, but it’s getting there. Bhubaneswar is a rapidly developing city, not a complete metropolis. So, you will not find it that charming in late-night comparison to another metropolis.
But Bhubaneswar is not far behind, though a lagged a little in the race. Some good and some great bars and pubs have come up in the city and the youth, as well as the elders, are not leaving a chance to hit them. From my personal experience, I am damn sure you will get some nice pubs and bars in Bhubaneswar and the wine, the alcohol, the themed bars and restaurants, the girls, and the dance floor are all there to set your mood right.
