Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, which means making elaborate plans with Bae and indulging in a fancy dinner. But, how about you take some time off the usual plan, and fall in love with this city. Mumbai apart from being the city of big dreams has unexplored museums, trampoline parks, lesser know food joints and we can’t wait to share it with you. We’ve curated a list of hidden gems in Mumbai, that deserves your love and attention. If you’re away from Mumbai,  time to fly to Mumbai & fall in love with travelling, right? 

Hasnabad Dargah

Mazgoan or Matsyagram, is one of the seven islands that made up the Mumbai {then Bombay} is home to one of Mumbai’s most beautiful mausoleums, Hasnabad Dargah – also knowns city’s very own Taj Mahal. This architectural marvel has four corner minarets and a beautiful blue dome that will make you Instagram them instantly. Hasanabad apart, Mazgaon is rich in culture, where you can find Catholics, Islams, Hindus and Zoroastrians, living harmoniously on this forgotten island. Love it already, don’t you? 

Puppy Cuddles

Want some pawsitivity to up your day? Let us introduce to this newly opened dog cafe in Khar called Puppy Cuddles, and the concept is one-of-a-kind. This dog cafe has 15 resident puppers such as Siberian Huskies, Beagles, Chow Chows, and more who are waiting to give you all the love you need. Best part? You can celebrate your birthday or anniversary with the puppers! All you need to do is give a heads-up to the cafe and they'll decorate the place with balloons and get all the dogs ready for the party too. Maybe celebrate your Valentine’s Day here? What say?

Dr Bhau Daji Lad Museum

Mumbaikar or non-Mumbaikar, this lesser known museum will tell you all about the city in less than INR 30. Right from how this island was formed to who were its original inhabitants, then there's no better place than the Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Museum. The museum has been restored and many old-timers say it looks exactly like how it did years ago {they've even got the exact shade for the walls}. What makes it awesome is there’s a beautiful museum shop, where you can score some antique collectibles, clothes, souvenirs and DIY craft products too. 

Khau Gali

Our love for Parsi food and sea-food is eternal but how about exploring a Punjabi Khau gali for a change? Skip the Mahim or Ghatkopar Khau Galli, head to the streets of GTB Nagar a.k.a. Guru Tegh Bahadur Nagar- which is as Punjabi and North Indian as it can possibly get. From delicious chole bhature to pinni made with desi ghee, there’s nothing you can’t find in these streets, that flooded with street stalls, restaurants and about six gurudwaras. If you’re lost, there’s always a smiling Paaji willing to point you in the right direction and more food options to try.

No Borders

Secretly located in the narrow bylanes of Khotachiwadi is Mumbai’s newconcept store, and it’s love at first sight. Dedicated to vintage fashion and artwork, No Borders Shop has a timeless collection. From colourful lights, old-school, retro flooring and plenty of antique furniture, this will 100% up your Instagram game. As you’re busy falling in love with the decor, you’ll be distracted by the gorgeous vintage clothes and accessories. When we say vintage, we mean it. There are Gatsby-style bags from the 1920s, an original Vogue Paris dress from the 70s, a metallic mesh top by Ferreira from the 90s and so much more.
