Pune is a city known for its versatility. This can be seen in the eclectic mix of young and cheerful faces, vibrant streets and an aura of magic that surrounds it. It is safe to say that no other city can fuel the free-spirited energy that exists in you, especially as a student, as beautifully as Pune can.
Here’s Style Cracker’s list of the five most happening and trending hangout places in Pune.
– Blue O, Phoenix Marketcity, Viman Nagar
Whether you’re known as the ‘bowling diva’ amongst your group of friends or you’re just looking to have a fun time, bowling sure is the perfect way to give yourself a much-needed rush. A plan like this works out best when impromptu. So, text your girlfriends, form a group, and have a ball while you bowl, and savour your favourite finger food alongside.
– Menchies, Koregaon Park
When you have a sweet tooth but the sugar rush gives you serious guilt pangs, frozen yoghurt is a great idea. Menchies offers a range of divine frozen yoghurt flavours, from choco-hazelnut to the very delicious blueberry. PS: Your Instagram page is sure to get a zillion likes as you post a picture of the ultimate #dessertporn.
– German Bakery
Known for generations for its welcoming, conversation-starting environment, German Bakery can be your best companion on days when you want some me time. Start early to enjoy a scrumptious breakfast or just arrive with your favourite book (sans your smartphone). There’s truly nothing better than steaming cup of latte and a chocolate brownie to complement a great read, is there?
– High Spirits, Koregaon Park
Every Puneite’s second home, High Spirits is the ultimate (affordable) watering hole for those of us who love good music and a lively ambience. Apart from gigs by popular artists, they also have an interesting line-up of stand-up comedy acts, match screenings and talks.
– Hong Kong Lane, Deccan Gymkhana
There are days when you want to do much more than just sitting and eating. Shopping? Yes, aren’t we always game for such an idea? Especially when the clothes, bags, footwear, accessories and books are available at a great deal. Phone a friend or just head out solo – the result will always be shopping bags full of sparkling finds!
