Great pub dining experience. Pumping atmosphere on a rugby night. Great night out with friends. How can you go to the Bangalore Polo Club and not have curry? Just do it.

Welcome to the Bangalore Polo Club, home of the infamous Bangalore Badgers and the most unique hospitality and dining experience this side of the equator. Established in Bangalore in 1859, The Bangalore Polo Club is proud to celebrate 150 years of triumphant polo and excellence in hospitality by opening the first affiliate clubrooms on foreign soil. Proudly open to all, the BPC (as the locals call it), is a club steeped in a rich tradition of excellence and triumph along with scandal and adversity. Grown from a culture of superiority set by the four founding members; The Count, Brigadier Grimshaw, The Maharaja and Raja Singh. The clubrooms are opulent, the menu diverse, the experience unique and the service outstanding. We insist that every occasion is celebrated in style and look forward to being of service to you for another 150 years.
