Up For A Treat? Look No Further Than This Pocket-Friendly Cafe In Kala Ghoda

Food posted on 12 June

What Makes It Awesome

The Local is famous for being the first speakeasy bar in Mumbai. The establishment was earlier essentially only a pub, but with time it has been revamped and is now open for lunch as well. This no-frills pub is done up quite simply with a very basic theme. Metal fixtures, picture frames of the old Bombay, high stools and plenty of mood lighting, this place has basic yet amazing interiors. We actually loved the non-fancy look, it has its own unique charm. The owner prides himself on focusing on the food rather than the frills.  The menu is changed quite often, as and when the owner {chef} comes up with new ideas. Currently, they are focused on a new Bambaiya menu which is designed to bring out the local recipes with some modern twists. The food here is lip-smacking and light on the pocket. The service is friendly and the light, soothing yet upbeat music makes you smile. They have various events like Bollywood and Hollywood nights, Karaoke and more. And every evening, the place transforms into a lively pub. We recommend you definitely try the Cheese Pav Bhaji Bombs and Paneer Green Chilli Garlic here. The Local is located very near to Kala Ghoda, opposite Standard Chartered Bank, hidden behind the numerous hawkers and true to its speakeasy style, you wouldn't locate the board with its name unless you try really hard.
