Nightlife & Entertainment in Mumbai

Find a place to stay

Mumbai’s magical madness continues once the sun’s faded into the Arabian Sea, the city lights up with music, food and fun, and the night owls come out to play. Rub shoulders with Bollywood royalty in its bars and clubs, or bounce to the live music that echoes around the city’s intimate venues.

 

Bars

 

Whether you’ve got the budget to let the Champagne flow freely, or are simply looking for a good time in characterful bars, Mumbai won’t let you down. Chink glasses while drinking above the city, or hop between bars that brim with charm and authenticity, as you immerse yourself in Mumbai.

 

AER Lounge

 

Get your head in the clouds as you rise to the top of the Four Seasons hotel, pop the corks on bottles of bubbly and toast the view of Mumbai’s sparkling ocean of buildings. Don’t worry if your budget is a little more modest - this is a great spot to start a night to remember, and the “Sunset Happy Hour” is perfect for watching the fiery red sun sinking over the city, while also enjoying hefty drink discounts.

Olive Bar & Kitchen

 

Enjoy a slice of the Mediterranean in Mumbai, as you eat surrounded by a mixture of olive and palm trees, in this venue’s idyllic, hidden courtyard. Once everyone’s had a little Italian wine, the tables are packed away, and the good times continue as a DJ takes over, getting everyone moving until the early morning.

Nightclubs

 

When it’s time to cut loose on the dance floor, you’ll find no shortage of late night utopias, where you can bust a move to the beats. Hit the floor, or get the VIP experience, as you drink with Mumbai’s movers and shakers.

 

Royalty

 

You’ll feel like blue-blooded royalty as you dance below glimmering chandeliers at this bouncing nightclub. You may even be joined by the glamorous stars of the Bollywood film industry, but chances are that they’ll be heading straight for the sleek VIP lounges above. The non-stop music, and wide dance floor, gives you space to show off your best moves, while the quilted sofas in the Red Room are perfect for rekindling your energy whenever you need a break.

Tryst

 

Get your name up in lights at Tryst, where practically every surface changes colour to match the mood of whatever song the speakers are pumping out. Sheets of glass, psychedelic mirrors, and pulsing LED lighting will transport you to a futuristic world of sensory stimulation. Screens built into the VIP tables even welcome guests with their names and personalised menus, but with a great DJ working the crowd effortlessly, even the celebs tend to leave the privacy behind so they can get right into the thick of the action.

Live music

 

Live music has only recently become an established part of Mumbai’s nightlife - but the thrill of the performance has spread like wildfire.

 

Blue Frog

 

When it comes to live music in Mumbai, Blue Frog leads the way, welcoming the glitchy bleeps of local electro duos, as well as the mournful saxophones of international jazz outfits. Perfect acoustics mean every gig gets the crowd involved and tapping along with the rhythm.
