15 Places To Drink At If You're A Woman And Alone

Current times have changed our definitions of relaxing and partying. Weekends have been defined by the number of parties we are invited to, and the best way to unwind in a short span of time is by visiting pubs.

The growth in India's pub culture has been tremendous and all over a small period of time. We boast of everything from female bouncers to pub crawls. We even have a law allowing pubs to remain open all night, increasing the prospects of fun. However, it has also raised the question about women's safety in this era of rising crimes. We keep hearing stories of women being assaulted and raped by random drunk men at parties and cab drivers at the end of a long tiring and drunk night.
