It doesn’t get better than this.
Thanisandra is great all year round. But if your are seeking cooler grounds this summer. Head over to Snow City. As soon as you walk in through the door a cold gust of wind will welcome you into the -5 °C arena. Imagine snow sledding in the afternoon with winter jacket and boots on when the rest of the city grapples with the sweltering heat. The very idea is making us a little chilly.
PVR Elements Mall
If you feel like pampering yourself a little bit, you can head over to PVR Elements mall for some retail therapy. But PVR Elements is not just for shopaholics, you can catch a movie or you can take your kids to the children’s play areas. Simply relax and while your kids jump, scream and make merry. A family day at the mall is just the perfect way to spend a lazy Sunday.
Lumbini garden and Nagawara lake
You can be 16 or 60 but the second you get on a paddle boat the child within you comes right out. These two places in North Bangalore are perfect for instant family picnic plans. Go on a boat ride or the wave pool or make a pact with your friends to try every ride in the Lumbini Garden water park. After that is done head over to Nagawara lake to wind down from the excitement of the park. Don’t miss the musical fountain show, it is guaranteed to leave a lingering feeling of wonder.
If you’re looking at an idyllic nature walk instead of waterslides and boat rides. Head on over to Dasarahalli park where you can lie down on the lush green grass. Picturesque picnics spots like this are a few minutes away from wherever you are in North Bangalore.
The Druid Garden
But Thanisandra is not all parks and malls, there are hundreds of great places to simply ‘hang out’. Drop by the Druid garden, the open layout of the restaurant makes it feel so spacious and bright. A hearty meal with the right drinks and the perfect music, with the occasional live band, will make you keep coming back for more.

Amazing food and an even better drinks menu, you can get a drink customised to your taste. Plus, the mafia themed resto-pub will make for some great pictures for your insta feed!
Glazed at The Marriott
The best way to finish anything is on a sweet note. And if you have a weakness for all things sweet then head to Glazed. You can dig into the many decadent
desserts or gorge yourself on pastries and cake. If sweet things are not for you, then you can pick from a large section of baked goods like bread or croissants.
