The detailed Bombay Thread (Mumbai)


Welcome to the Bombay Thread

When in Bombay try to do some of this :)

(clubs, pubs, food, shopping, rest bars and all of it!)
Places I would suggest all of you to go for sure:Indigo Lounge @ Colaba (grt Italian and other cuisine, one of the top rated bars in the city, Huge Wine list, truly International crowd, best nights to go Wednesday, Friday and Saturday)

They also own another Indigo Deli ( A kool breakfast n all day snack place with FREE WI-Fi!) also located in Colaba Both the Indigo's are 2 to 5 minutes walk from Hotel Taj Mahal Palace, Colaba!)

Shiro and just next to it (the world's biggest Hard Rock Cafe!) both located at Bombey Dyeing Mills, Worli) ) Hard Rock Cafe is HUGE / Mega and bigger then I have seen anywhere in the World and always over filled with people lot's of live gigs.Unlike any other Hard Rock Cafe in the world this one is filled and buzzing with local Bombayites daily!) SHIRO is classy, Zen, waterfalls, Huge Buddha statutes, nice VIP lounge kinda place where one can drink, smoke and still breath and talk, good food and grt music one of the biggest and koolest club / lounge in Bombay

Dome (rooftop of Intercontinental) a very good Bar, quite know withing the Media / Banking circuit a nice expensive place....(Smoking Allowed by the poolside lounge!)

Czar in the same hotel Intercontinental located at Marine Drive) a regular club, disc is all I can say...

Prive (OVERLY HYPED!) a good place but suffocating, if you dont smoke I am sure you will DIE, logistics / Valet sucks big time, I still feel the place is Good but its overly hyped and even overly over crowded!
