Gather The (Girl) Gang: Fun Stuff You Can Do With Your Friends on Women's Day

Let's admit it - since we run the world already we're entitled to have some fun, especially on days that are meant for us. And since Mumbai has always been a city that's encouraging women to take that leap of faith, no wonder there are groups planning offbeat activities that specifically cater to us. If you still haven't planned on making some time for yourself and gift yourself a break, do it asap. And while you're at it, bookmark our list to have a great Women's Day weekend ahead.

For The Daaru Wala Gang: Go Bar-Hopping

Grab your girl gang and spend Sunday night hopping from one cool bar to another. Drink away your sorrows, and drink to your happiness and achievements! We recommend areas that are chock full of bars - think Veera Desai Road in Andheri, any given part of Bandra, and/or Colaba Causeway!

At Veera Desai, you can cover Ministry of Dance, 145 Andheri, Lord Of The Drinks, Anybody Can Driink... this is a long list that's best covered on foot.

At Bandra, we recommend starting off with Gokul, and then heading to The Daily, Little Door, Mitron, Monkey Bar Kaitlyn's Beer Garden, and JLWA.

At Colaba Causeway, start with Gokul, and head to 145, Cafe Mondegar, Havana, and Effingut!

For The Nature-Obsessed Species: Go Camping!

If you're an adrenaline junkie and want to spend your day introspecting amidst nature, opt for camping! While you can obviously drive outta the city and pick a spot of your choice to pitch your tents, we think going in a group that's organizing specific camping expeditions is your best bet.

Give Pawna, Rajmachi and Prabalmachi a go! Want to stay closer to the city? You can even try SGNP.

For The Water Babies: Sail Away!

Picture this-a calm sea, a soothing breeze, and a gorgeous sunset over the city's skyline. Take a break from work, responsibilities and all your stress, and book a sunset sail with your besties. Several companies can book a yacht or a large boat for the crew, so make use of the service already! Get more deets here.

Don't fancy heading to Gateway? No problem, head to Pawna. Here's the 411!

For The High-Maintenance, Prissy Posse: Get Blow-Dries and Acrylics Together!

If your posse has always loved dressing it up and looking at the top of your game at all times, we think y'all should just head to Beauty and the Blowout! Get fresh acrylics, refresh your hair colour, and manis and pedis. Need more than just great service? Some wine, maybe? Head to Blown at President House in Cuffe Parade, or if you want to tuck into a meal while you get your hair did... Head to the Blowdry Cafe.

Yes, tons of options in SoBo. If you're in the 'burbs, we genuinely recommend heading to one of these extra-unique salons, just because they've genuinely perfected the experience of pairing beauty upkeep with food and drink!

For the Chefs and Sous-Chefs: Shop at A Farmer's Market And Cook Together!

Allow us to explain this one. All across the city, there are tons of farmer's markets every weekend where fresh produce gets sold at great prices. If you're all not very keen on spending the day outside, and would prefer ghar ka khaana and comfort, how about a group trip to your local farmer's market? Score some great produce, and spend the day indoors. Cook up whatever you like, and exchange notes on the dishes your besties have perfected.
This also means cooking can be a group effort that could include your families as well, and it could be real fun!

Here's exactly where to head for the closest Farmer's Markets.

For The Twinkle-Toed Troupe: Go For A Pole-Dancing Lesson

It's cheeky, empowering and a killer ab workout. What's not to love about pole dancing? Get an inquiry for a group sesh, and we're sure it'll be fun for your group to pick up a new skill together. Be prepared for tons of falling, slipping, laughing, and ultimately, graceful twirls around the poles. We think you can head here, and here.
