The Leela Palace Hotel in Bengaluru is a happening place, discovers Alok Chandra

Inaugurated in 2001, the Leela Palace Hotel Bangalore (Bengaluru) may almost be termed decadent. Built in a baroque art-deco style modelled on the Mysore Palace, with copper-plated domes (now green with oxidation), ornate golden-red ceilings and extravagant interiors set in nine acres of lush greenery, the hotel was the go-to place for corporate honchos and top-dogs in this rapidly-expanding wannabe metropolis, never mind the top dollar prices charged.
