Many might not anticipate that Mumbai boasts a fabulous
nightlife, but this city will not disappoint with its dazzling
display of clubs, discos, bars and restaurants all bustling into
the early hours. With so many 'Bollywood' stars, millionaires, and
high-profile social butterflies around, Mumbai has become the pride
and joy of India's nightlife, with plenty of chic and trendy spots
for travellers to enjoy.
Sip on your favourite poison in one of Mumbai's rooftop bars overlooking the Arabian Sea, before heading out to a bouncing nightclub to dance the night away. The lively Colaba Causeway is a great place to start, with plenty of down-to-earth pubs with zero pretence.
Head to Churchgate or Juhu if you're looking for somewhere to shake a tail feather; while Bandra is a very chic area, where style is the order of the day and everyone seems to work really hard at looking good. Join locals on the dancefloor and jam to some bhangra and RnB, or for something completely unique, go wild to some Hindi house hits.
Being the home of 'Bollywood', visitors to Mumbai should definitely head to a local cinema to take in a movie. Fort and Churchgate areas are the best places to do this - make a night out of it, and you won't be disappointed.
