Overview

Chickpete is popularly known as the shopping paradise of Bangalore. But did you know, it was also one of the first spots in the city to have a bank as early as 1913? 

This exclusive evening walk has been specially designed for those who love bits of history interspersed with bouts of food. While the business hubs thrive during the day, an insane food scene erupts at night, right in the heart of Bengaluru’s most thriving, busiest market. 

Every lane, every landmark has stories that have withstood the test of time. We will visit an almost 150-year-old abandoned mansion (Mohan Building) that has stories for almost every decade, explore the only Red Church on Avenue Road, and learn how the Maharaja of Mysore gave Bangalore its first street lamps.

If this has gotten you excited, wait until you do the actual walk with us and take home a lifetime of memories.

Itinerary

Walk with us through the lanes of the ever-bustling Chickpete with a tour companion and understand the rich cultural and heritage history of this space. 

We will start at the SBI building on Avenue Road, followed by pit stops at jewellery polishing works at Anchepet, stroll through a 150 year old heritage structure and experience a different kind of nightlife that comes alive here with the street food vendors, small businesses and shops at Nagrathpete. We will end the walk on Avenue Road at Rice Memorial.

This is the only walk that brings you the best of a local market, small businesses, and street food in one. Work up a little appetite for this so you can experience the charm of Bangalore’s oldest central business district
