Mumbai Nightlife, India

Mumbai India is at its best element at nighttime. Bars pubs cafes and restaurants start to gather as many people as they can. The entire city lights up and becomes the biggest party zone all over the country.

What to expect

Before you start knowing where to go exactly in Mumbai for a good nightlife, there are some things that you have to discover first. First of all, if you want some cheap drink, stick with the usual beers and whisky. They are more affordable than imported and even local wine. However if you’re really looking for great quality you would not mind a lot more.

The prices of drinks may differ not only according to their quality, but it also depends on where you buy them. Of course, high-end bars and clubs have pricier liquors than those sold on street corners. There are also certain hours when these drinks will be available and only those who are in legal age are allowed to order them. You may want to ask first at the club about their licensing hours.

The dress code in Mumbai is very loose but you may still want to dress up to the nines since the majority of these party goers are.

Bars in Mumbai

A lot of bars in Mumbai have couples-only rules which means they only accept pairs. Nevertheless, there are a number of clubs that would not mind you going solo. You may also have to check how much the entrance fee will be.

There are plenty of Mumbai bars and one of the most popular is the Indigo. It’s one of the oldest clubs in the city that attracts both young professionals and teens. Because of its very cozy atmosphere, it still has a good turnout every night despite intense competition. There are also lounges that are found inside hotels such as Geoffrey’s which is open until one in the morning. For cheaper-priced food and drinks you can head to Leopold or the Olive Bar and Kitchen.  

Not Just Jazz by the bay is the only bar in the entire city that features a live band every night. If you’re tired of techno and dance, you can always reserve a spot here. Repertoire changes almost every night so it’s best to call ahead just to have an idea of what to expect.

There are Indian publications that print nightly schedules of certain pubs and clubs. You can purchase them for a small price so you can have your own guide.
