Permit Room To Resto Bar: After Three Decades, Bandra's Favourite Yacht Gets A Makeover

7621 Interested |


The legendary permit room, Yacht is reinventing itself as a Resto Bar and we are thanking our stars. Never thought this day would come but it has, and we’ve got mixed feelings.

What Is It?

Run by a Mangalorean gentleman who has probably seen generations grow at his bar, Yacht is all set to make a comeback this weekend. Due to open in four days, Yacht will see snazzier, will have cleaner interiors, cleaner washrooms {yes!} and a glow sign outside. The previous ‘Permit Room’ has now given way to ‘Yacht Resto Bar’ – written with a wave dividing it.

Although the interiors are undergoing a 360-degree change, the menu more or less remains the same. So basically, you will still be able to have cheese omelette, kheema masala, schezwan chakna and chilli paneer, over a beer that costs less than a taxi trip to SoBo.

So, We're Saying...

We’re excited about sitting at this landmark after a good/bad/awesome day at work. Yacht doesn’t really need an occasion, to be honest. We hope they don’t increase the prices {fingers crossed}.
