    I have shifted to Pune for the next eight months, and I will soon have some friends visiting me and wanting to go out some places in Pune.
    As I am new here, I need some help in finding out what places to hang out in Pune.

    To help with the suggestions, we are all aged between 24 - 27 years old, and like going out and partying.
