Wondering How To Kill Time This Weekend? Read Our Guide For Things To Do In Mumbai

Bhavika posted on 18th August

Whatcha doing this weekend? Rolling around in bed wondering what to do, cancelling plans on friends or feeling a little bit of FOMO staring at your screen? This week, give up the usual forced scene at the bar, and go explore the beautiful, lively city that Mumbai is. We’re chalking out things you could do this whole weekend, so that there’s never a dull moment to be found.

Thank God It's Friday {August 18}

Attend A Stand-Up Comedy Night

Chuckle at the stand up gig by comedian Daniel Fernandes. We love his subtlety and sarcasm especially when he’s bringing current issues to light, and putting stereotypes right where they belong – back in the 17th century.
Get tickets here.

Watch Short Films At AntiSocial

Spend your evening watching short films, screenings and audiovisual performances especially curated for the EyeMyth festival at antiSocial this Friday. Know more about the event here.

Go For A Chill Music Gig

Drop by Bonobo for a chill music scene as Sid Vashi {presented by KRUNK} is performing there on Friday. If you haven’t heard his music before, he’s an electronic music artist and makes very soothing, chill music that you’d want to groove to.

Find out more about the event here.

Hurray, It's Saturday {August 19}

Go On An Awesome Heritage Walk

Get ready for the festive season coming up exploring the lanes of Lalbaug with this walk before the din and the madness kicks in. The walk is hosted by Shriti of Beyond Bombay, and will explore the lives of mill workers and artists, the spice market of the city, the dargahs of Lalbaug and the Ganesh shaalas. A great way to look at a place you often just mistake as a flyover, yes?
Sign up by calling +91 9867764409 and find out more about it here.

Go On A Blind Date With A Book

Cannot get enough of words? You’re in for a treat this Saturday, with a poetry open mic and a INR 99 book sale – happening all wrapped up in brown paper. It’s taking place at 91springboard in Andheri, and you can get tickets right here.

Paint & Sip On Wine

Grab a paintbrush and set out to unleash your creativity with the Bombay Drawing Room and SoHo Wine Club. That’s an afternoon to just sit back with a glass of wine, some food, art materials just ready for you and to let you creativity go to town.
Join them by buying tickets here.

Trek Up To The Andarbhans

Just step out of bed and get going on the trek you always talk about, this weekend. There’s a one-day trek taking place to the Andharbans {literally, the dark forest}. It’s a medium-difficulty trek that includes your travel, breakfast and tea.
Sign up here.

Attend A Ballet Recital

Pirouette your way towards a ballet recital this Saturday, taking place at St. Andrew’s Auditorium in Bandra. This is a ballet rendition of the classic fairy tale ‘Goldilocks and The Three Bears’ that is being performed by the students of the Indian Academy of Russian Ballet.
Find tickets here.

Hey There, Sunday {August 20}

Learn Spanish Over Coffee

Always wanted to learn Spanish more than just spurting out the words ‘hola’, ‘amigo’, or ‘tacos’? Go for the first session of Spanish Tertulias, who are starting Spanish lessons outside a classroom space – in a coffee shop, a bakery or otherwise.
Find details here.

Go For A Play Blindfolded

The Dark Room 2.0 is an immersive story-telling experience in which the audience is blindfolded as they enter the theatre, characters from the play whisper in their ear, and actors interact with the audience in between the play. They will explore three stories at this event. Can you or rather, do you dare?
Book here.

Check Into A Human Library

You may think of us as old-school when we put going to a library on your weekend planner, but hear us out. Human Library is a concept in which one goes and borrows not a book to read, but a human. Different human beings, or ‘books’ share their stories unabashedly, and you too can be part of this event as the reader this Sunday at Bombay Connect, BKC.

Find out more here.

Eat A Big Meal & Watch A Bigger Play

This Sunday, grab a completely un-quintessential meal first, and then watch a play both at the Bombay Canteen. The folks at this contemporary Indian restaurant that is loved by most are hosting a play called the Internal Affairs Show #75 which is a fun romantic comedy set in urban times of love in the times of work and distress.
Get tickets here.

Attend A Writers’ Open Mic

Writers who usually keep their work hidden away or are looking for a little feedback, check out this unique event, Stories on Toast which is an open mic for unpublished authors. Gather up your courage and sign up here. Let the prose be your friend.
