High And Dry: Head To These Rooftop Bars To Safely Enjoy A Rainy Day

Nupur posted on 22 June

We love the rains, we hate the rains. It’s a complex relationship, but we’ve found a way to deal with it – Mumbais’ best rooftop bars. We went out into the rainy wild and found the rooftop bars in Mumbai which offer us a sheltered vantage point to enjoy the rains and have a drink while we’re at it.

Jamjar Diner

Jamjar is pretty popular amongst the ‘burbies for its colourful decor and innovative desserts {Mess In A Jar, Flower Pot Surprise}. We’re planning on cuddling up with some coffee to watch it pour. Head here for a good meal, as well as if you’re planning to go shopping at one of the neighbouring markets.

How about eating greens while surrounded by greens? An all-vegetarian menu, that’s exactly what you’ll get at this Powai restaurant. It’s situated on a carved hill and provides one with a bird’s eye view of the Powai Lake and Hiranandani Gardens. Though not revered for the food, this place seems to be a good escape from the chirpy {read loud} side of Mumbai.

A rooftop in Malad’s Orlem, head to Magoes if you’re looking for a hearty home-cooked authentic Goan mean. From Xacuti to thalis, they have it all. And once eaten here, you will definitely come back for more.

The House

Located near Rock Beach, this place known to take you back to Goa with its prettily lit terraces that overlook the waves hitting the rocks. Friendly staff and prices that don’t hit your pocket in the face. Is this literally a house?

We can only imagine what fun it will be to shake a leg, or enjoy LIVE music at a rooftop in a downpour. While all of these things together sound a tad unbelievable, Bonobo in Bandra has a rooftop for exactly this kind of an experience. Priced slightly steep, it’s still worth it to spend an evening here.
