The commercial, fashion and dream capital of India, the capital city of Maharashtra lies on the western coast of India.

The best entertainment spots, the latest designer threads in tiny boutiques, delicious food in fine dining restaurants in Mumbai, India’s most modern and happening city has it all.

Mumbai, the ever-changing city, is getting a makeover, unlike anything the country has ever seen before. The city has more than 15 super tails - slang for skyscrapers above 300m, being constructed in the northern suburbs.

Mumbai is famous for its historical neighbourhoods, brimming with culture and authenticity. However, you mustn’t miss out on the cutting edge Mumbai is famous for. Get under the cosmopolitan skin of the Maximum City of India by visiting some of these sights and activities.

Organic India

Bandra has more cafes than houses, as claims by the locals. One of the poshest neighbourhoods in Central Mumbai, Bandra boasts of some of India’s best delis, cafes, snack bars, breakfast joints, tearooms, and coffee houses. With cool and laid-back interiors, these places offer a divine range of organic eatables and expresso-based pick-me-ups.

Matters of the Art

Indian art now sells for millions of dollars at galleries and exhibitions around the world. No trip to Mumbai is complete without a visit to the top art galleries. One of India’s oldest art houses, the Chemould Gallery, has consistently represented the country’s most respected artists, from past masters such as MF Husain and Tyeb Mehta to contemporary visionaries such as Jitish Kallat and Atul Dodiya. Another contemporary gallery is Chatterjee and Lal, which promotes mixed media, art installations, and video art, along with a video catalogue that features some of the hottest artists of India’s new millennium.

Music behind-the-scenes

Mumbai has a thriving live music scene, with everything from metal to experimental electronica. One of the most iconic music institutions that promote emerging Indians as well as international musicians, the Blue Frog comes alive on the weekends. Bands and soloists belt out everything from classic rock to Indian ragas, staccato ska, dub, funk, and hip-hop beats. 

The National Centre or Performing Arts is perfect for a more refined evening. From Indian and international music and dance performances to modern theatre and photography shows, the National Centre has an impeccably curated schedule of cultural activities. It also hosts art exhibitions, recitals, lectures, and film screenings.

Local Designs

When it comes to fashion, most of us follow rather than lead. If you're the complete opposite, then make sure your itinerary includes pit-stops to the boutiques in Mumbai that showcase local talent. Some of the most popular ones are On My Own, frequented by the city’s style-setters, and Bombay Electric, which has a mind-boggling collection of handicrafts and jewellery. Also, don't forget to check out Obaitamu, a fabulous boutique with Japanese aesthetics.

 

Visit Mumbai and be a part of the glitz and glamour, by staying at some of the best luxury accommodation in India.
