Up Above The World So High: Everything You Need To Know About AER Mumbai
What Makes It Awesome
One of the fanciest rooftop bars in Mumbai, AER has always been on our to-visit list, although let’s be honest: we’ve been slightly wary of what to wear, when to go and the codes of lounging. In an attempt to make life easier for us and you, we’ve rounded up all our queries in one go.
AER is on the 34th floor of Four Seasons hotel, and has a gorgeous view of Mumbai. They play great lounge music that is loud enough to groove to but soft enough to be able to hold a conversation over without having to yell, ‘what?’ multiple times.
If you're confused about what to wear, the dress code here is smart casuals, and men, we'd advise you to wear full pants and closed shoes. Ladies, keep it smart and keep it stylish.
With a view like the one AER's offers, you can sip on some drinks and watch the sunset. We chose to order for Nig, a gin-based drink, and Fix It All with vodka infused in it. There is also a very exotic cocktail that you must lay your hands on. Its called the Mumbai Kiss, and has white rum, maraschino, cardamom and pineapple in it. (You won't regret either of the three.) And now that you have your drinks sorted, let’s move on to the food. They have an excellent spread to eat from, such as Corn Fritters, Salt and Pepper Calamari Rings, Water Chestnut, Prawn Koliwada, Chilly Cheese Pepper Pizza and Mushroom Sliders. A meal here will cost you about INR 4,000 for two people.
Since this is a lounge and not strictly a club, there is no entry charge. It is getting a table on a busy Friday and Saturday night that’s requires a cosmic interplay of luck and more luck, so we recommend booking in advance.
