Ten-Second Takeaway

21+ is a new app which has been launched in Mumbai {and is compatible with 12 bars across the city} that not only allows us to order our drinks while we’re still in the Uber, but also order a drink to mollify the miffed friend we’ve kept waiting.

How Does It Work?

The bars currently on the app {which is available on both Android and iOS} are: Cafe Zoe, all four outlets of Harry’s Bar, The Barking Deer, The Bombay Bronx, The Little Door, The Sassy Spoon, Three Wise Men, True Tramm Trunk and WTF!. With a selection covering some of the most popular bars in Parel, Bandra and even Powai, we can see how this app might deserve a download no matter what suburb we swear allegiance to.

After we pick a bar {each has a 10% discount offer currently}, we pick our poison. From spirit to imported beer and even mixer, we can make the drink as customised as we like. Payment is online via debit or credit card, and a four-digit code is texted to us which can be shown to the bartender on arrival for our drink; or be sent to our friend who swears we’re never on time.

So We’re Thinking…

Part of the appeal is not having to wait and hustle at the bar like we’re in a local train, but we guess at least the decrease in waiting time is a definite plus. The app doesn’t ensure a table or even immediate service; it just makes sure that the wheels of our next order have started turning before we get to the bar.
