So, what about the Mumbai nightlife?
Mumbai has some of the largest and most popular nightclubs in India. It is known as the city that never sleeps!
The last couple of years bars and nightclubs have popped up in Mumbai.
You'll find beer bars, upper-class cocktail clubs and discos. Most discos charge an entrance fee, and other discos only allow couples. The most attractive party spots are scattered in the tourist area of Colaba, Bandra and Juhu.
When we arrived at Busaba, we immediately liked the fresh red interior and the cool colors. I love mojitos and always buy it if I have the chance. We bought mojitos for Rs 300 and sat down on the comfortable couches.
The evening continued with chill-out music in the background, but there was no party atmosphere - probably because we were the only ones at Busaba! The music was too loud and could barely talk to my friends, so we just sat there and stared at the walls while drinking.
Busaba Cafe is also a restaurant, and serves Vietnamese and Burmese food. But we didn't try the food because we only came in for the drinks.
Where: Manlik road
Last visited: October 2007
Ghetto Bar is known for rock, beers, graffiti and it's packed in the weekends. So, if you're a rock lover or want to play pool, go here!
If you're heading here with friends, I suggest you order pitchers - a good way of splitting the cost for beer.
But while we were hanging out here, we only heard a strange music combination of techno. The music was too loud to carry out any kinds of conversation!
On the other hand, the laid-back atmosphere did make up for it.
Café Mondegar sells beer at reasonable price (Rs 100) and is a hotspot for hanging out with travelers.
If you like house or hip-hop, you might try Red Light in Khala Gowda. It's a good and popular place where you can hang out, and get to know other travelers. Some will likely think that the nightclub is too small. But that's because it fills up quickly, so it gets crowded!
The typical bars like Hard Rock Café never go wrong.
Mumbai has soaring alcohol prices compared to other travel destinations in India due to several taxes and duties imposed.
In touristy Varkala a large Kingfisher beer at a restaurant will cost you Rs 100, while in Mumbai it will easily cost you Rs 150 and probably more.
Popular beer brands in India:
Beer at bars: Beer range from Rs 100 to 300. Imported beer brands cost more than domestic brands.
A glass of wine: from Rs 90
Cocktails at top clubs: from Rs 350
