    Can some members please suggest some night out places in Pune for us work friends who are currently in Pune for the next 10 days we don't go out anywhere at the moment and are very bored.

    We know that Pune is quite a modern place but are not too sure what exactly we can find in Pune, so all suggestions welcome.

    Hi, @Moni, welcome to the forum!


    Just under three hours of driving away from Mumbai is the city of Pune. It is one of the metro cities of India, but has spark differences between other cities. For instance, Pune is relatively green, from its roadside trees to the assortment of plants all around. It is also one of the cheaper metro cities when it comes to the cost of living so you can definitely get your money's worth when in here. With a booming IT industry, Pune is also quite modern but not essentially as chaotic as other metro cities. You can still enjoy the moderate pace of life here, along with the cooler climate, which most tourists and locals appreciate. When it comes to Pune's nightlife, it's very vibrant too and you can choose from several places that will cater to your late night partying or dining needs.

    Night Out Places in Pune

    For the music lovers...

    1. Hard Rock Cafe - This legendary bar/cafe also has a branch in Pune. As with any Hard Rock Cafe, the ambience is quite the same, very laid-back, wooden interiors and of course, also present are the memorabilia of legendary rock icons such as Mick Jagger and Bob Dylan. As such, you would be able to spot rare photographs and even guitars of well-known artists, certainly a treat for the music lovers. Loud music always plays here so if you are not a fan of that, be prepared. Otherwise, the music played here caters to the true blue music lovers, with classic rock hits from different eras. The bartenders are equally fun too, especially when they groove to the famous YMCA song from time to time. When it comes to the food, the cafe has American, Continental and Mexican cuisines. Most of the dishes are finger foods, best paired with a beer or two. Their menu is quite extensive though, especially the bar menu where you can find many cocktails and other alcoholic beverages. If you want to witness a live music show, you can reach the cafe during Thursdays, their designated live night. During the other days, there's still music played by the DJ and you can also request for any song that you would like to be played.

    2. Apache High Street - Featuring a very rugged atmosphere, with its bricked interiors and all wooden furniture, Apache High Street is yet another good night out place in Pune. If you love incredibly loud metal music, so loud that your couch seems to vibrate already, then Apache High Street is the place for you. There is also an outdoor seating area, for those who want some serenity and isolation from the crowds. The menu is a mixture of Continental and Asian cuisines.

The ambience is very natural too, as the area has natural greenery going on. The outdoor seating area is very spacious, although the indoor seating area is a bit on the cramped side.

It's best to reserve a table especially if you come with a group as the waiting time here can be quite long.
