How long has it been since you’ve been at a restaurant, enjoying a fine meal with musicians singing soulful, live music alongside? With candle light dinners like these, and live music venues such as the ones below, we believe that you’re soon going to be the protagonist of Date Night – Revisited.

Boston Butt makes for just the right mood, with its warm lights and rustic American bar setting. One of the newest entrants in the Kala Ghoda game, it has already wiggled its way to our favourites’ list. Visit them to bite into that warm cheese bread while listening to a live band performing every other day. The music is usually jazz or pop, with a singer accompanied by either a pianist or guitarist.

Some people who performed here have been Ramya Pothuri, Two Much, Rajesh Ravi and My Kind Of Blue. Stay tuned to their Facebook page here to know about each upcoming act.

Timings: 8.30pm–10.30pm

Fountain Sizzlers

Townies would know of this little joint that they have visited time and again with their families. Sizzlers aren’t the only great thing served up at Fountain Sizzlers. Every Sunday night, a singer and guitarist makes the rounds of the restaurant, singing English songs on request. Doesn’t get more old-school than that. 

When: Sundays, 8.30pm–11.30pm

The Yard

A good night only gets amplified when there’s live music accompanying it. The Yard, another smokehouse and BBQ joint at Kala Ghoda, has musicians come in every Friday night. While they sing and strum the guitar, you should dig into a cheese fondue and bratwurst sausage.

When: Fridays, 7pm onwards

Reise

Andheri’s first travel-inspired bar, Reise is where to go for a night of confessions and many indulgences. The live instrumental music played every Wednesday is sure to take you to another place, and maybe even leave you {wander}lusting for more. The in-house artist switches from English to Hindi tunes in a second, and maybe you could even request for a song that you have a sweet spot for.

When: Wednesdays, 8pm onwards

Goa Portuguesa Restobar

Do you like your food with a flavour of the sea? You may have already eaten at Goa Portuguesa, where some of the more authentic Goan {and Maharashtrian, and South Indian} food is prepared. The experience is only heightened with their singer who, similar to the likes of Fountain Sizzlers, loves to take requests and walks around with his guitar in hand. You may request for songs in Hindi or Marathi.

When: Wednesdays, Saturdays & Sundays, 8pm–11pm
