Not So Good
So we just went to this place for the Ladies Night as my friends wanted to drink and they heard a lot about the Ladies Night here. The place was a little dull as the music was so low and there was no one on the dance floor initially. Maybe because we went there at around 8.30 pm. But the place started filling up by 10 pm and was a little more lively. The service speed was deteriorating as it got busy but we were done by then. I being a teetotaler don't know how the drinks were but my friend was quite happy that there was free wine and that it was quite decent. The food was as I expected, not so bad but not so good. The ambiance was a little shady but it's not so bad. I did have fun in the end because I went with my flatmates, otherwise it would be an absolute no for me.
On A Friday Night this is the place to be In
Friday night being ladies night , girls get free entry , food and booze but guys you get all this for 1200 :P. But its still unlimited booze and food :). The place has a dedicated dance floor and it gets really crowded as time passes by and you wont even get to move an inch , the service becomes slow and you really get bugged with it , tip the waiter if u want to be treated exclusively . there's a separate dance area for couples. so pretty decent place , if you like to be among the crowds.
This is another pub and lounge in Bangalore that has a dedicated dance floor!
So if you wanna let your hair loose then you could try this place.
The first time i was here, i had a very nice experience. The bar is looks awesome, the DJ plays pretty good stuff.
The food is not that bad either.
The second experience was not a pleasant one, as I was there on a Friday, which is a ladies night! Entry free, unlimited starters and alcohol, makes it sound awesome, but trust me its not a good idea, as the place is super crowded, the dance floor is packed, you can barely move, then you have too many guys coming in.
The starters never reach you, and the service gets extremely slow due to the over-crowding.
So avoid this place on Fridays, apart from it, worth a visit!
Good place to dance away the evening
Good place. Went there on a Persian night. It was fun dancing to those tunes.
Drinks: Prices are normal, but quantity is not. They have reduced glass sizes to bring prices down
Music: Have been here twice. DJ plays nice music and dance floor is big enough to accommodate large no of people.
Food: It doesn't have a specialty. But regular food is good and moderately priced.
PS: Though burrp says we get AmEx discount, they don't have AmEx machine. So no discount for American Express Machines
Crowded and chaotic
This used to be a fun, and relatively classy place up until about a year ago. I went there this Friday, it was Ladies' Night, and guys walk in for 1200. The drinks and starters are unlimited. And the concept is very good. Which is why the complete randomness of the crowd that show up here. The place was packed, the front dance area and event the open areas had no place even to stand. Dance would've been a motion due to the crowd and it's momentum by bumping alongside other people. As the night progressed, like in most unlimited booze parties, women started throwing up, men got into drunken brawls, couples making out on couches and random aggression was all over the place.
I saw a few people struggle with the service to get starters, someone from my group tipped the waiter to keep appetizers coming at the table. If you absolutely do HAVE to make it to this night, or even the Saturday night, either reserve a table or show up around 7:30 to get one yourself. Their bouncers do keep things in check, so safety isn't a problem. There is a separate section of the dance floor only for couples and girls. Again, it's a push-a-dance thing in there. On the Friday I went, the DJ was particularly lousy, but once you're drunk, it hardly matters.
My personal recommendation would be to not go to this place, instead head to F Bar or Ice.
Awful experience at Hint JP Nagar (B'lore Central)
Very poor customer service
After occupying a table, no one turned up to take order for almost 25 minutes, the waiter kept passing by attending other telling us he'll be back.
Seemed like they are short staffed
Very un-trained staff
No manager could be traced
Take The HINT .. This place SUCKS !!!`
Most pathetic disc i have been in bangalore !!
sucky DJ(even on saturday nytt .. rude unwelcoming staff... not a good place for people who want to dance and have a good time..
yea u can go if u want to smoke in the open and sit and drink...
ok ok drinks.. not good food... sucky crowd.. no good GIRLS !! :o
i meanWTF .. how has this place got 3 rating here.. i would not give more than 0 t this place
Really poor experience
Been here... rude entry staff... rip off for the entry... music was not the great ....he played some good ones for about an hour in the 4 hours i was there.... unlimited free food and drinks "for 1 hour"... after that the bars closed... in that one hour - 2 waiters.... hundreds of ppl... well u get the idea... not a place ill be visiting again thats for sure....If there were 0 stars - that would be appropriate....
best place to have a pathetic party
the worst and cheapest place to party. On fridays, they say "unlimited drinks and starters" but u can bet your money on the fact that u will get hardly any starters. they'll just serve 1-2 plates of horribly tasting starters and never come back. u can hope to get few veg starters but chicken no chance. n coming to drinks, take all the "unlimited booze" you want before 9.30. Cos after that you wont have any chance to grab one because of the unbelievable mad rush at the bar counters. only 2 bartenders in a counter on such a busy evening!!!!!! moreover it is heavily crowded. the greedy management let any number of people enter without keeping in mind the capacity. so be prepared to have drinks spilled all over u, ur feet getting crushed with dancing high heels, u getting touched at wrong places because of the huge crowd etc. . it's like almost a stampede. and coming to the bouncers, they are horrible. If you are 'easy to get' enough they'll buy you drinks from the bar else they've no sense how to behave with a lady! witnessed this behavior with my own eyes. and MUSIC?? omg! let me not even talk about it! I visited hint 4 times( each time expecting some improvement) , each experience being worse than the previous and hence, this review. I recommend strongly to avoid this place on a friday night, especially if you are a girl or you can afford a better place.
So bottom line, if you are fine with to be approached by the cheapest of guys, be misbehaved at, get manhandled and get suffocated with 300 people squeezed in an averaged sized pub, hint is THE place for you! Enjoy!
potential not relized
Went with friends to do some dancing and drinking. For the first few hours we had to endure the DJ's mixes. Very uncreative, everything reduced to a WUMP! WUMP! WUMP!. After awhile music got a little better when he actuall played some tune. Drinks were OK. The club was very nice inside, nice dance floor. The restroom was the most apalling I have ever seen. There was a river of urine running through it. Glad I only had to make a few trips in. They have got to get a "Hint" and get a plumber in there. If you have a week stoumach do not go there.
Not a stags place!!!!
I went to HINT for the very first time,had heard bout it frm quite a few frendz .
As they say The first opinion is everlasting. Me and 3 of my guy frends had gone to have a gud time,on nearing the reception table a huge, muscled man put his hand rite up and literally shouted couple entry Rs 1000(1 question-did v luk lyk some bunch of rag pickers who trying to force their way in). Dat done, we went in @ 8.45pm. We sat in the open terrace area, which was pretty ok, but actually twas a fish market, people were clapping, guffawing and gyrating, it seemed lyk a bar.
He service is gud,coz the waiter was v prompt in getting our orders and filling the table, but the 1 thing that was offending was they collected cash while taking the order. The entire area was very hot and humid and the clamourin of the ppl made it even worse.
My frends headed for the dance floor around 10pm & my of my, there wasnt even a spot to place a pin. Twas jam-packed. It was even hotter inside. The crowd was upright pathetic. They should know what is the dance floor and sitting area capacity, people were standing here and there making it difficult to even go to the seat.
The muxik was ok.
Value for money-1/5
A very bad and sad place for the stags.
hint of mismanagement..........
Me and four of my friends went there to celebrate end of bachelorhood of two friends among us (as they were getting married to each other).it was friday afternoon so had to run from office ,incidentally with an empty belly. The ambiance is good ... a mixture of pub and lounge bar with a small dance floor. But the service is awful....they promise unlimited snacks and starters but u can't even get a plate as nobody will come to u to ask for an order... u have to get hold of an utterly busy running waiter(god knows where he is running) to tell him ur order which will also never come.... ultimately we understood how to order ...put 100 Rs bribe in a waiter's pocket and he will bring u food... we got only a plate of chicken wings after waiting for 3 hours (for 5 people)... the bartender is rude, but at least u ll get ur drinks. My recommendation is a strict no no... we have got far more better nightclubs and pubs then this in Bangalore........
Did not like the place. Rude service. Crappy cocktails. And initially I was not allowed to enter because I was wearing sandals. My friend, who is a regular to the club scene, took me to the restroom, took off his socks and asked me to wear it. Lo and behold, I danced in my socks and sandals. :D
Also, the bouncers are idiots.
Why would a customer lie for a booking ???
I had called Hint at 6:30 PM on a Saturday to book a table for 4. Since I am a regular at Hint I knew they might have some event happening and hence I called earlier to confirm the reservation and the same was agreed. Later just before reaching the location I called the guy again to confirm the reservation and he says "No Stag Entry". When reminded him about the phone conversation he says "Dont Lie Yaar !!!". Why the hell would I lie when I am paying for the bloody dam drinks ??? Pathetic Service !!!
they jus lowered the bar.........
hint used to be one of my fav places in bangalore...iam from pune i used to miss pune's night life when i relocated here..but when i entered hint for the first time i forgot bout pune...it was that kinda place...Times has awarded it the best nightlife in bangalore...i have been going there almost every weekend...but last Friday there is no other word but they sucked...they turned it into some cheap bar...there were more than 2000 guests as it was an unlimited night n hint is not that big to accommodate so many ppl..it was heavily crowded...there was no place to move a bone...and to add to it.. on an unlimited night..when the place is so heavily crowded they have only one bartender one side and two on the other...all had paid cover at entrance so every one wanted their drinks...but it was impossible to get drinks..and bartenders were rude to the guest...and most of the bartenders were roaming outside the bar and they were taking extra money (a bribe) from the guest to get their drinks...it was so cheap for a place like hint....i mean i was so disappointed.... If any one the hint managers or any other staff happen to read this then plz try to understand that this way u r only gonna loose ur guests...i mean u can strike me off from ur guest list for ever..........
I go to Hint quite often and thoroughly enjoy the energy, gentry and drinks there. The place offers some very neat drinks, and I can assuredly say it serves the best Cosmopolitan I have ever had. There is a bartender there called Vijay - has a very fine talent at making drinks. The place most of the time is filled up with expats and white trash, but i will consider that as a positive.
I must share a terrifying anecdote here. Once went with a friend to this place. We did not have a girl in our company and you are not allowed to be on the dance floor unless you have a lady company. So, we ask one girl if she would care to dance with my friend and she politely agreed. So i see my freind prancing around with her doing some very intimate moves. And suddenly he screams - i see the wig on the girl's head had fallen off. She was a he! Whew, and we just fled the place! Pretty freaking embarrassing! Apart from that solitary incidence, I certainly like the place.
All you self respecting ladies, don't go to Hint
We went to Hint on the 18th of September 2010 with a group of girl friends. When we stood in a queue to get in, the bouncer did not allow us to get in and when I asked him of the reason, he shouted at me and told me to stand in the corner. When I asked him not to shout, he told me not to show attitude since I was a woman and denied us any entry claiming that we were misbehaving with them. Both the bouncers were very rude and lacked any civil sense. There was not a manager in charge who we could address regarding our concern. They allowed my American friend to go in whereas the 3 of us Indians were not allowed to go in while I was the only one arguing with them. This also goes on to show how racist they are, by openly displaying their fear for the whites and their disrespect for their own people.
Rowdy n Drunk Bouncer Abuses n Beats IT Profesionl
We went to HINT with seven of our friends, and while entering the dance floor the Bouncer stopped one of our friends thinking that he was stag entering, not noticing that his dance partner had already taken entry in. The guy tried to explain that his partner was in and called out to his partner, but the bouncer without listening to the guy stopped him in a rowdy manner. Hearing his call the girl turned back and went to tell the bouncer that the guy was with him, meanwhile the our friend got angry with the bouncers attitude and gave him a stern look and said that you should mind your attention. The bouncer started hitting our friend, and when his partner came to plead to the bouncer to stop the bouncer pushed her hard ignoring that she is a girl. He even raised his hand to hit her, and the girl was shocked and started crying with shock and pain, the bouncer had stamped over her foot. Another couple from our friends who were dancing rushed there and this time again the couple shouted and asked the bouncers to stop, the other girl was also pushed badly.When asked the bouncer why he did so, he started giving bad words not only to guys of our group but also to the girls. He also said that our friend started the use of abusive language. Not only did that particular bouncer hit our friend, but all of a sudden there were 4-5 people of the pub beating him, breaking his specs and his eye went completely red with blood clot. With tone, stammering tongue and red eyes, we made out that the bouncer too was drunk. We had to anyways rush our friend to the hospital, so we left hurriedly, to our surprise the other bouncers were supporting the bad deed of that bouncer. When one of the guys from our friends said that it is not good that so many people hit one guy, just for nothing, the other bouncer said that he will call the same bouncer out and lets see who wins in a one on one. This was the worst experience I had there, I am not going there again. We are all software professionals, married couples working in reputed IT companies and we know how to behave better than those bouncers there.. Beware this could happen to you too.
Had been planning a party for a good fren for long time but could not decide upon the place and occasion. Then all of a sudden he decided to get hitched and hence got the idea of Bachelor's party. After zeroing down a few places and reading a lot of reviews regarding Hint, we decided to visit the place on a Wednesday ( bollywood night).
I must say the place is impressive with a huge bar counter , good balcony , excellent food and service. Except that the lighting at the balcony area could be better , we could hardly see the food we were eating!
The in- house Dj wasn't very great but when Dj Teja took the command the whole place became upbeat . He knew the pulse of the crowd and all were dancing away to the bollywood hits.
I will certainly recommend the place for its location , ambience , food , music , service and decent crowd. All the key ingredients for a fun night.
Pricing though at a higher side , but then ALL GOOD THINGS COME WITH A PRICE.
TRY OUT ONCE
well went to " HINT" with MY frnds(STAG entry).. 1000 bucks and unlimited food and Drinks... went by 8.30 pm..gets crowded only by9.30. Top View is good and whole "Bangy" can be spot out from there. college crowd we can figure out there. Dance floor not so good and even DJ is not rocking.....I find it ok ok....Go if u want to have unlimited drinks and starters and with gurl ...otherwise watch FIFA world cup or IPL there.
ok to decent dance floor
Good place with decent music. However I felt cheated with the volume of alcohol. The price in the menu does not mention the volume of alcohol. We are fairly new drinkers and we ordered drinks - but had no effect even for few minutes. Small dance floor but fine to get started if your new to bangalore.
As the other reviews say it is a nice place with a beautifull view and amazing music but the service was very very bad - we found a cockroach in the food plate and im not talking about the really small ones which u can find in a few restaurants by mistake it was really huge one right on the food and the waiters just came by took the plate and went away they did not apologise nor did they replace it and i think its basic decency to do it.
No too Impressing
I and a friend were forced and pulled into it last Friday. We convinced ourselves and reached there at 9:30PM
Dance floor was empty and the open terrace lounge filled with too many people. The music was so-so and many in our gang felt there was some problem in the drinks served as after drinking quite a bit, they were trying to get high to some extent but all their attempts went into vain.
I liked the peanut masala though a few felt it was overloaded with chilly. The French Fries was good as well. After McDs, it was this place, I really liked the French Fries.
It was around 10:30PM and thats when the crowd started moving towards the dance floor. We followed the same and believe me the DJ sucked big time!!! I guess he really dint know what to play and what not to. There used to be very slow music at times and no music at times. After repeated instructions to him by many, he continued to do the same. Thus, the dance floor wasnt as rocking it is supposed to be.
The DJ stopped playing the music exactly by 11:30PM as per the norms and we headed back too.
Overall, it wasnt too impressing and I personally would not go to the same disc again.
ok plc....might be nice for collge ppl
it might sound a little too rude but the fact is, this plc would appeal only to the people who have jst started goin to clubs & pubs. or havent travelled much..
this place is a sad imitation of shallom..even the DJ console setting is stolen form them...lol
dimmly lit, ok seating and SAD dance floor....the DJ is BAD...for a COVER CHARGE ...WHY
Food is a ok thingi though...
cn go there, you wud find it ok....but ya the plc dosent add anything to you experience....
TIP : take yr frnds along, food is good so nthing elc wud matter...
I bet your GF will love it
This is an awesome place where you can take your sweet heart for a romantic dinner. The avg cost will come around 1000. I've heard that they'll take a cover charge of 1000. But when I went it was not there. They just let us in. But trust me the place is awesome. @ 5th floor of bangalore central that too roof top with no lights on other than the moons and stars.
A nOt so new nIght spot in town...HinT...not offers a hint of rockin' good muZik but good time too...Situated on the 5'th floor of bangalore central mAll...It's mostly black,minimal interiors offset the vast sloping glass sides that let you see the city night time splendour...There's even space to relax and enjoy the sky with beautiful moon and the stars in the open...that space is basically for people who want to spend some time from the usual noisy ,Polluted atmosphere.."dnt intend to harm the smoker's by stating the above" A ciggy here too... :) but the real fun is when its during the chilly winter days of bangalore....Imagine you and your loved one gettin close to each other to warm up....Aaah...lets not get carried away by that...talkin about Hint ...still new...Service..mmmmm Scratchy ..but according to what i saw the crowd groovin and movin to the hip_hop tunes....thats no deterrent....prices...Steep...
NIght out for 2 maybe say 1grand...000 !!!
Top of the world
I have been to this place about 3 times and have always had a nice experience. The crowd is good and the dance floor and the DJ rock. Even if you are looking for a quite evening for a date, you can sit outside and enjoy a drink.
The cover charge is 1000 bucks a couple/ stag.
This place gets quite crowded..plan to reach by 9:15, you'll get seated immediately. after 9:45 there is hardly space left.
The service is good, but while ordering specify if you want a large or a small peg because these guys get a large if you dont tell them..:-)
The place has valet parking which is another advantage
Try this place
This is one good place in bangalore to party at weekend.Music is good,so is the ambience.An entry of 1000 per couple which is very reasonable.The crowd is also pretty decent.If you dont want to be on the dance floor,then they have a roof-garden service.I would suggest guys and gals do try out this place
