Pubs in Bangalore to function till 2 am
Bangalore, May 15: Tipplers might soon get to enjoy their drinks in pubs and bars in Bangalore till 2 am with Karnataka Government favouring extension of the business hours.
Excise Minister B Renukacharya today indicated the government might concede the demand of pub and bar owners here to extend the business hours till 2 am from the present 11.30 pm.
"The Chief Minister (B S Yeddyurappa) has been briefed on the issue and a decision is likely to be taken soon," he told reporters here.
It is a long-pending demand of the pub and bar owners, who argue that curtailing night life in Bangalore, an aspiring global city, does not send right signals for the international promotion of the IT hub.
