Why Mumbai Wins When It Comes To Nightlife

Posted at March 26th, 2016 | by Shivani Goel | in Grapevine

Among the metropolitan cities in India like Delhi, Mumbai, and Bangalore, one city that shines out when it comes to nightlife is Mumbai. In comparison to others, where Delhi has it’s own plethora of problems like safety issues and really needs to work to revive it’s nightlife, and Bangalore pubs which are homely but become dead before midnight, Mumbai is one city which never sleeps and won’t let you sleep either.

It has a lot of nightlife options, from local dive bars, chic lounges, multi-level super clubs, and live music venues. The trend is leaning more towards resto-lounges than full scale party nightclubs with the live music and theatre scene really picking up in the city. It’s the nightlife capital of the country and has bars and clubs that can hold their own when it comes to comparison with the best in cities like Hong Kong and Singapore. Check out the 10 places that define nightlife in Mumbai and cater to the cities interest in fashion, film, and finance.

Wednesdays and Thursdays are important nights at some clubs, while the traditional Fridays and Saturdays are also in full swing. The more prestigious places usually have a cover charge, and there is even a 25% liquor tax so be prepared to spend. Beer and Whisky are the most popular drinks, but Indian wine which is produced in the highlands of Maharashtra is also becoming a favourite. Some places apply a couples-only policy and don’t let stags (single males) enter to keep the ratio even. When going out to places like this, dress codes apply and it’s smart to dress up as you can be rubbing shoulders with the cream of the country from movie stars to the social elite.

Apart from the pricey nightclubs and the 5-star hotel bars there are also more relaxed, lazier watering-holes for a chill night out. Dimly lit lounges with low cost drinks where you can turn in sandals and shorts and no one will give you a second look are there for anyone who wants a change of pace. So keeping in mind your budget, music taste, dressing sense, and mood, Mumbai nightlife is there to cater to your every need.

So we have endless options, a nightlife that booms till the wee hours of the morning, and whatever sort of crowd you please. These things itself are enough to make Mumbai the coolest city in India but on top of this it’s also a lot safer than other cities. Wherein Delhi it’s difficult for a girl to step out alone after dark, Mumbaikars can grab autos by themselves at 4 in the morning and be assured that nothing will go wrong. It’s definitely the city to party it up in, so don’t miss out when you get the chance!
