Entertainment Options in Hassan
Cinema Halls in HassanIn terms of entertainment, Hassan has its fair share of cinema halls. At present, there are 6 cinema halls in the town, out of which the Sri Laxmi Multiplex offers various movies simultaneously playing in multiple screens. However, there are no properly formatted shopping malls in the town yet. The only known mall, the RCM Mall has shut down due to operational challenges. However, this does not stop the plethora of shops and retail stores from operating across the known marketplaces across the district.
Restaurants in HassanThere are many restaurants in the town, offering both traditional and international cuisines. However, do not expect very sophisticated dishes, when it comes to expectations of international cuisines. The well known fast food brands of India like Café Coffee Day, Pizza Hut and Dominos Pizza have still not opened their stores in Hassan till 2014. If you are looking for local tastes, there is absolutely no dearth of good restaurants and eateries.
Nightlife of HassanWith regards to the expectation of nightlife, there is not much to discuss about since Hassan is still to match up the lifestyle of a metropolitan city. Discounting the shady bars that are visible in various parts of the town, there are very few sophisticated bars to support the tastes of up-market public. Few of the starred hotels like the The Ashoka Hotel and Candy Southern Star has their in-house bars that will fascinate the up-market clientele, but will be much expensive accordingly too.
To cater to the upper class and the privileged strata of the Hassan society, there are only a couple of good clubs. The Hassan Town Officials Recreation & Cultural Association (R)
And The Heritage clubs are a name worthy few. However, there are also many local clubs to support the youths and locals of the community. There is Hasanamba Indoor Stadium, where one can spend a weekend exercising and playing various games. There is a heated swimming pool for one to relax.
To round up the entire entertainment scenario of Hassan, it can be said that the socio - economic structure of Hassan has evolved over the years and has taken the form of a modern day culture. People in Hassan have learned to work and enjoy their life in parallel. The exposure of nearby cosmopolitan cities like Bangalore and Mysore has affected the desire of modern lifestyle in the localities. However, due to the predominant rustic nature of the town, it is still far away in offering all the entertainment avenues that are offered in bigger cities. There is no proper venue of entertainment that remains open beyond the midnight, hence leaving little scope of nightlife activities in public.
