Tirupati is a well known pilgrimage destination, so, you cannot really expect a lively nightlife in the city. However, few hotels have bars where you can relish a drink or two.Not very good with cocktails but a decent place to have both soft and hard drinks. The place is nicely decorated and the crowd that arrives here are usually lively and enthusiastic. The food that is served here is also quite delicious.This is another great nightlife option in this temple town. The place usually gets crowded by both locals and tourists, so, it is better to check for space before entry. The bar offers an assortment of different kinds of foreign liquors both hard and soft. It is a nice place to hang out with your friends.

Take a water bottle and some snacks if you are OK, to the waiting halls where in the pilgrims are made to wait before the long unwinded journey to the Darshan of the Lord. It may take an hour to few hours depending on the rush. But TTD does provide, water, milk, and some prasadams absolutely free. But then its a real melee out there. If you can train your sense to be subdued you would really be able to conquer your city bred niceties and expectations and quell the urge to admonish the unruly near uncouth behaviour of the most colorful chaos that I feel at times should have been avoidable experience.
