The Ghetto


This place is a box to tick by all. It’s a badly lit dive bar with luminous walls, UV lights and busy graffiti all over the walls (link somewhere to the facebook photos maybe?). Take ya Sharpie and get involved – see if you can spot BarChick’s tag. It starts to get busy after midnight, even on a school night which is unusual for Mumbai.

If you wanna play pool have a chat with one of the inappropriately smartly dressed stewards in high collared jackets, these guys rule the pool tables roost and monitor who goes when. We played a couple of rounds until we were politely told to hand our pool cues over again and happily headed to the bar for a drink. There's not much on offer, but that's not the point: have a beer or a glass of red (the Indian wine Sura is perfectly drinkable) or make like the locals and have a Bacardi Breezer... retro! Dance and sing along with everyone to rock anthems old and new. Get there by midnight, it’s packed on weekends and stays open 1.30am.

Tip: Go outside if you fancy a fag, not in the weird enclosed and pretty unpleasant smoking room!
