Ten-Second Takeaway

Is there anything worse than suddenly realising it’s a dry day, and seeing all your plans come to a screeching halt? But don’t worry. Where there’s a will, there’s a way. We have rounded up a list of bars that remain open in Mumbai even on dry days – though there’s no guarantee, this is a good list for when you want to try your luck. {We also have a list for post-one AM drinking, in case you’re a night bird.}

Reflections JW Marriott, Juhu

As all five-star properties have the license to serve alcohol on dry days, {except election day}, Reflections at JW Marriott could be one of the options you could explore in case you direly need to go out or your birthday falls on a dry day {bummer but hey, we saved you}. Along with cocktails like martini, cosmopolitan and Jager Bombs for the brave, they have tikkas and finger food to gorge on.

Harbour Bar, Taj Mahal

Now, if you want to take fanciness a notch higher with a sea view on a dry day {not so dry now, is it?}, Harbour Bar is your best bet. If your pockets can take it, pair up their cocktails and other drinks with a tune avocado yuba roll or cajun spiced prawns.

Hornby's Pavilion, ITC Grand Central

Sipping a glass of whiskey while gushing about the dreamy, old world charm of Millsquare {it has a fountain} doesn’t seem too bad on a dry day. They have signature dishes like potli samosas, mezze platter and dal kebabs.
