Night Life in South Mumbai
No matter what time of night you venture out, there are bound to be other's going about some business or other. The city has always led the nightlife scene in India and there are bars and clubs to suit every taste; jazz dens compete with Salsa, Tabla dance fusions and Funk. Mumbai 's alternative but decidedly yuppie crowd meets at the Ghetto Bar before heading down to the gay, glitzy or groovy clubs around Colaba and Juhu.
Night is when Mumbai really starts hopping. If you're in south Mumbai try Polyester for some nostalgic '80s song and dance.
Hawaiian Shack has a boat shaped bar and waiters in straw hats with 1980’s pop-up repeats.
Visit the pricey high-ceiling two-floor Indigo voted among 60 top restaurants in the world. The restaurant serves spicy Thai and Oriental food.
Celebrities can be spotted at Athena, the cigar lounge restaurant, with low yellow sofas and opaque glass counters.
Try Gaylords at Colaba too. An established bar since 1942, it has two levels with a mezzanine-floor bar - the menu card here is reasonably priced.
For a fun alfresco experience not far from the Taj, wander up a few floors to the trendy rooftop Koyla a hookah bar and restaurant where white tents flap in the breeze amidst leafy vegetation and lots of cosy low sofas and cushioned corners. Good mix of music, mood and food
Nightclubs are the ultimate great escape – people on the prowl all looking for a good time. The atmosphere is smoky, the lighting other-worldly and the music, always sexy. It’s hardly a wonder then that for the bold and the beautiful, it’s the most socially accepted way to just “chill out” and “hang loose.”
The name "Bombay" was derived from 'Bom Bahia' (The Good Bay),
.... a name given by Portuguese sailor Francis Almeida, in 1508 ....“Bounce back Mumbai” .....as it is called by the locals, it is a city that has been through a lot in the recent past – floods, bomb blasts, riots – and come out stronger each time.
