A city cannot function like a machine all the way; there has to be some breather in order for a city to survive. Without entertainment, people cannot live forever and by entertainment, what is meant is going out and chilling out at clubs and pubs, sipping into cool beverages, playing some games, partying out with friends. There needs to be some kind of breakaway from this hectic, monotonous schedule or else a city’s life comes to a standstill. Dharwad is a small town with an ancient historical past and the city has not experienced a lot of modern up gradations yet there are a few clubs and bars in Dharwad and Hubli district.
Dharwad doesn’t have nightclubs though, which is still a required necessity in the area. Movies are also a way out from a hectic work schedule and there are a couple of movie halls along with the latest attraction, Cinepolis, a multiplex at Urban Oasis Mall in Hubli, which screens latest movies from morning till night. The options are a bit limited, nevertheless, Dharwad is fast transforming into a modern and cultural hub, evolving a new form of city life and providing entertainment opportunities for its citizens.
