Visit the Cauvery Arts and Crafts emporium where you can buy handicrafts, artefacts and famous wood/sandalwood toys. It's owned by government and prices are reasonable. It's walking distance from the stadium: on MG Road, just off Brigade Road.

Watch a play at the Rangashankara theatre
Bangalore was known for plays but over the years it died down. Rangashankara still hosts great plays and I enjoy going out and watching these live shows. It has a different buzz about it. They run it professionally and make the whole process very enjoyable for you. Robin Uthappa

Must have masala dosa
Try masala dosa (rice pancakes with potato stuffing) and have coffee anywhere in the city. The better hotels are in Jayanagar. Also go to Pecos for beer with some amazing chicken tikka and good music.
Tips for Travellers
Bangalore's traffic police frequently check motorists for their alcohol intake - especially around MG Road area, and around other places where there are many pubs - and not just on weekends. So, if you have a car, pick a designated driver for the night or be very sorry.
