Flames tore through a basement bar on Mysuru Road, from where an employee, Lakshman, escaped unhurt.
The police said the licence for Gajanana Bar was taken in the name of B Varalakshmi.
In the early hours on Thursday, beat policemen noticed flames curling up from the bar and checked if anyone was trapped in the basement, but found no one. The blaze charred furniture and liquor.
The police did not register a case as there was no loss of life, but assured they would inspect to determine if the bar had violated regulations.
