It may not be an illegal dancing den, but the Hyderabad Gymkhana has its merits. Generously equipped with both gym and khaana, this club plays the law of averages to its complete advantage, drawing both the health conscious and the diet unconscious.
The workout and sports facilities include: a separate gym for men and women, billiards and pool tables, and a table tennis hall. Besides these, they have two conference halls, a smallish banquet hall, a bar, a family room, a lounge, tambola nights, a movie every Friday, occasional picnics, and coffee table talks on subjects of general interest.
The Hyderabad Gymkhana has basic but good facilities, and an ambience of comfort, fun and leisure. Any illegal dancing, however, will have to be provided by the guest.
