Food, Booze & The Morning After: Our Guide To Hosting An Epic IPL House Party

Nupur posted on 17 April

Planning on staying in this IPL season? Have a house party with our easy guide to throwing an epic one, with everything from a home-delivered bartender to next-day clean-up.

The Alcohol

Most important and the easiest. Call up Bar Mobile and they’ll set up a bar for you, whatever your budget. If you’re into BYOB, call up Deepak Wines {they deliver in and around Bandra}. No cash at home? Deepak Wines will bring a card machine along. In case you wish to buy alcohol at wholesale prices, this is your go-to shop. For the lazy folks, these shops take orders on WhatsApp.

The Food

Got some meat-lovers coming over? Order from Death BY BBQ. This Bandra-based takeaway joint is all about the meat. The eatery specialises in barbecued {duh} meat, selling authentic Southern style ribs, barbecue chicken, and slow-smoked pulled pork cooked with charcoal and fruitwood.

What about later? Have numbers for restaurants and dhabas that will deliver food late at night. We recommend Bade Miya in Colaba, Mogul Sarai near Bandra Station, Mini Punjab at Pali, Ranjeet Dhaba in Chembur, Anda Apna Apna in Andheri – give them a call or head out if you’ve got the energy for it.

The Lighting

Remember we told you how Lohar Chawl is the answer to all your light fantasies? We weren’t kidding. Pick up some dance lights and turn your pad into a dance floor in minutes and under INR 1,000.

The Music

After the match is over, may we suggest some music to groove to before it turns into a 90s music video throwback or an all-out Govinda fan fest? Streo lets you live stream gigs from all over the world, including those that are happening in Mumbai at The Social or at Aer Lounge. The app, which is available for download on both iOs and Android, allows you to choose by artist or venue to listen to past and present music concerts.

Check out the Streo app on Android here and on iOs here. Also, for our absolute Bollywood-lovers, there’s no site better than GhatiParty {ready playlist of your fave numbers}.


Are you tired of coaxing your friends into taking out the beer bottles the next morning? My Didi wil take care of the mess the morning-after. Install their app or ask for a cleaner online, they’ll return your house spick and span.

PS: They only have deep cleaning services available at the moment, but we know that’s all you’re gonna need because your house will be a mess for sure.

The Hangover

We told you where to get your hangover fix a few days ago. Hit up this list again and never ever utter the dreaded ‘My head is hurting’ again.
