10 Places That Define Nightlife In Mumbai

Posted at December 12th, 2015 | by Guest Writer | in Grapevine

Mumbai, nicknamed the “City That Never Sleeps” has a unique energy and vibe that is somehow resilient to everything the city has gone/goes through. On one side is the hustle-bustle, the crowds scrambling to get on the local trains and the pollution while on the other side is the coast with the Queen’s Necklace, some of the finest Art exhibits and festivals, Bollywood and the remains of the British Empire. Though Mumbai’s nightlife has suffered a bit due to several restrictions, it is still alive and kicking. So come check out the places that define nightlife in this melting pot of cultures and people.



blueFROG (Lower Parel)

The only club to have live gigs everyday is an Indian brand. blueFROG revolutionized the live music scene in the city and has truly evolved into a premier platform for artists new and veteran. The out-of-a-sci-fi-movie decor, great music performances, delicious albeit expensive food and fantastic Craft Beers make this place truly unique.

Hard Rock Cafe


The Worli outlet of the iconic American chain of restaurants/pubs is a treat for any music lover. Like any HRC around the world, the ambiance is derived and inspired from music. The walls are adorned with set pieces from world-famous musicians like Elvis Presley, Madonna, Bruce Springsteen, and Led Zeppelin. Gigs here feature Indie to International acts. They are known for their Burgers and Long Island Iced Teas.

Mehboob Studios


Ever since it has been available to rent for cultural events, from hosting the Mahindra Blues Festival (India’s Largest Blues Festival) featuring Blues Legends and artists from around the world to the Live From The Console gigs which feature up and coming indie artists, Mehboob Studios has it all. Though gigs do not happen as often, you must check their event calendar and plan a visit the studios (which to this date is used for shooting Bollywood Films).



Tryst delivers a one of a kind experience with emphasis on VIP services and making people feel important. Instead of a dance floor, tryst has 9 tables making the people the center of attraction. They provide Tablets, Mini Fridges and a personal Bouncer at the tables. They play only international music ranging from House and Trance to Dance with a strict no-no policy towards Bollywood music.


Marvel at the panoramic city and sea views and the endless ceiling of sky and stars at AER, Four Seasons Hotel Mumbai’s rooftop bar. Covering the entire roof of Four Seasons Hotel Mumbai, this 34th-floor open-air lounge creates an atmosphere of chic relaxation high above the bustling streets of Worli. AER welcomes guests year round including the famous monsoon season. Adorning a canopy and windscreen during the monsoon season, AER offers a memorable experience at a new high.

Kitty Su

After establishing itself in Delhi, Kitty Su opened up its second venue In Mumbai. Located inside The Lalit, the club has a rugged mill like design on the outside, contrasted by elegant and tasteful decor on the inside. The club is known for it’s private “The List” area where only club members and their friends are allowed with a separate bar and DJ Console. The rest is nothing less than spectacular though and a great time can be had even in The Common Room as they call it.


Designed to give the Mumbaikars a taste of living like European and Indian royalty, Shilpa Shetty’s Royalty is one of the most popular clubs in the city. The main area is 10,000 sq.feet of sheer luxury which leaves you breathless but only figuratively as the club is equipped to pump oxygen into the room pampering the guests right down to what they breathe. What makes it truly unique is the three others areas i.e. The Red Room with baroque style furnishings and its own ambience all the way to playing its own music that’s being played parallel to the main club. The elevated members VIP area adjacent to the min club with separate bar and personal attendants and the VVIP area styled and decorated by Designer Rocky S. overlooking the entire club with its own service and bar.


BiblioPole, a NightClub set in the Suburbs of Mumbai is the place destined for party maniacs. The satisfying vibe set with great music & an elaborate food & drinks menu sets this nightclub class apart from other cliché nightclubs. It features world famous DJs and has limited guest entries to make it a more private experience.


Fashioned by the Tham Brothers in collaboration with Neha Gundecha, Trilogy has distinctive interiors and boasts of 2 floors spread over 5,000 square feet. They offer a delectable Pan Asian entrée food menu, World class DJs and a surreal sound system , making everyone groove to the beats all night long. It also doesn’t hurt that the club is set right next to the iconic Juhu beach with the Arabian Sea waves crashing onto the sand.

Todi Mill Social

One of the newest additions to the city and situated right next to blueFROG, the Todi Mill Social has rapidly gained popularity in the city with it’s mill inspired rustic interior and menu design. Part of the “Social” chain (Also check out Colaba Social and Palladium Social) what set’s this one apart is the frequent gigs they organize. The food is amazing and reasonably priced while the liquor menu has something for all budgets. Do try out The Longest Long Island Iced Teas (served in tall beakers) while you’re there.
