Eateries near the stadium

The stadium is very close to MG Road so do not miss the opportunity to walk alongside it. Try the biryani at Nagarjuna on Residency Road and the Chinese food at Little China on Church Street.

From breakfast to dinner

Have a leisurely breakfast in outdoors at Airlines Hotel on Lavelle Road - walking distance from the stadium. Then take stroll on Brigade Road and/or Commercial Street - preferably between 11am and 7pm. And end the night with a fabulous dinner at Ebony on the 13th Floor of Barton Center on MG Road.

Drink after the match

Bar waiters prepare vodka-based martinis, Bangalore, May 30, 2007 Unfortunately liquor is not allowed at cricket stadiums so after the matches, head to Barton centre on MG Road and visit the 13th Floor lounge bar - it's fantastic. You can also visit the Hard Rock Café (on St Mark's Road near MG Road) for a pint or two. At UB City, you can visit Shiro's for Japanese cuisine or chill out at the City Bar. If you want to visit a sports bar, head to Extreme Sports Bar on Bannerghatta Road. The N Stand, also known as the BEML stand, is the best one to watch from cricket at the stadium.

Stay close to the stadium

Traffic is a major issue in Bangalore especially on match days with thousands converging to the venue at nearly at the same time. The best way to avoid traffic is to stay at a hotel nearby and walking to the venue. Arrive at the stadium at least two hours before the start time as security procedures may delay your entry in to the stadium. Coming early will also allow you to take the best seats of the stand.
