12 Bars in Bandra To Get Your Groove On!

Bandra is particularly expected to be the place where one can get a rare glimpse of the odd Bollywood actor (or even). But often, its treasure trove of bars goes unexploited under the pressure of spotting a filmstar. While the eastern side of Bandra is developed into the commercial and administrative hub, the western side became home to Bollywood and entertainment with the coming of Mehboob Khan’s studios in the 1950s. Bandra West is where you will find an assortment of bars and restaurants that will give you a taste of the social life that has transpired and is aspired by so many.

Here is a list of the best Bars in Bandra:

1. Mitron

This bar and restaurant have a lovely ambience that is mellow and pops that are neon. The ambience is not its only sell-off. Mitron often hosts live music, scrumptious desserts, valet parking and free wifi!
Address: 5th Floor, Crystal Shoppers Paradise, Linking Road, Bandra West, Mumbai
Cost for two: INR 1500
Recommended dishes and drinks: Pot rice, Chicken Smak Pizza, Molinari Sambuca extra and Ketel One (vodka).

2. The Little Easy

The ambience suits its name. It is a ‘little easy’ with its shades of yellow and light wood accents and yet it is spectacular in the night.
Address: 231 A, Link Corner, Linking Road, Bandra West, Mumbai
Cost for two: INR 2000
Recommended Dishes and Drinks: Goan Chorizo and Crisp basket, Lord’s Aperitif and Bond in India 

3. TAP

Here the neon oddly mixes with a striped theme but does not plunge into the dark secret vibe like Mitron. It often happens to be the hub for nightlife because of its floor space.
Address: 3rd Floor, Link Square Mall, Linking Road, Bandra West, Mumbai
Cost for two: INR 1500
Recommended dishes and drinks: Beer (one of the best Bandra offers), Blue shark shooters, Mexi Nachos Chaat and the TAP platter (speciality)

4. Bora Bora Duty-Free

This bar is one of the younger additions to the bars in Bandra west. It has a more minimalist look with a pastel crushed velvet tinge and pop accents. It is LGBTQIA friendly and has Karaoke!
Address: 155, Waterfield Road, Linking Road, Bandra West, Mumbai, Linking Road, Bandra West, Mumbai
Cost for two: INR 1800
Recommended dishes and drinks: Lemon Grilled Fish, No. 1 Maki Sushi, Kahlua, Brain Haemorrhage. 

 5. Ab Celestial

This is Mumbai’s famous floatel. It is decked on a yacht renovated on the insides into a bar and restaurant. You could never miss the dazzling lights from a celestially white boat on the sea right next to the Bandra-Worli Sea Link.
Address: Near Bandra Worli Sea Link, Bandra Reclamation Dock, Bandra West, Mumbai
Cost for two: INR 5000
Recommended dishes and drinks: The Goldfish, Jager Buoy, Jackfruit Tacos and Spicy Chicken Meatballs.

6. 145 Bandra

This cafe bar has been one of the ultimate bars in Mumbai. The ambience is light and merry in the day but gets rushing into the evening. 
Address: 1st Floor, HSBC Building, Off Turner Road, Pali Hill, Bandra West, Mumbai
Cost for two: INR 1300
Recommended dishes and drinks: Lotus root chips, Avocado on Toast, Berry GNT and Japanese Dunkel.


Slightly on the expensive side of things, JLWA has a glamorous vibe to it. The pale sophistication gets a pop twist with its yellow and turquoise accents. 
Address: 3rd Floor, VN Sphere Turner, Linking Road, Bandra West
Cost for two: INR 2500
Recommended dishes and Drinks: JLWA Litchi Sangria, Maple Whiskey, Tandoori Makhane Popcorn, Baked Mushroom tarts

8. Monkey Bar

This is another minimalist bar, with the most unusual of accent colours. Monkey Bar has an amazing Sunday Breakfast menu!
Address: Summerville, Junction Of 14th & 33rd Road, Linking Road, Bandra West, Mumbai
Cost for two: INR 1900
Recommended dishes and drinks: Mobar specials, Bourbon LIIT, Bandel and Malai Fish,Laal Maas Phulka Tacos

9. Carter Road Social

Carter Road Social is uncannily easy on the pocket. A pint of beer costs around INR 180. The ambience is more pastel pops that encourage you to eat more than drink.
Address: 21, Gagangiri CHS Limited, Carter Road, Bandra West, Mumbai
Cost for two: INR 1400

10. Kaitlyn’s

Kaitlyn’s is eerily aesthetic almost in an Avataar kind of way. It brings the tavern vibe back right into the heart of Bandra. Also in the 2000 club, this is slightly heavy on the pocket but offers an experience completely worth it.
Address: 202, Khan House, Hill Road, Bandra West, Mumbai
Cost for two: INR 2200

11. The Boston Butt

A rather flimsy pun on the despicable Boston Butt, this has a very college street vibe with its red accents. The liquor, of course, brings it down to reality and that is all that matters.
Address: Shop 5-6, Gasper Enclave, A Wing, Pali Naka, Pali Hill, Bandra West, Mumbai
Cost for two: INR 1700

12. Effingut

Another Linking road phenomenon, the Effingut is a mid-range bar that offers aesthetics and good drinks. It is wonderfully cafe-like in the day and turns into a mellow yellow washed ambience that is simply a perfect night out. Nothing more to demand really.  
Address: Ganga Jamna Sangam Building, 24th Road, Linking Road, Bandra West, Mumbai
Cost for two: INR 1800
The nightlife is particularly concentrated on the Linking Road right before it hits the Bandra-Worli Sea Link. It gets costlier as you approach the sea but also more picturesque against the sea breeze and the blue of the sky and the ocean. If all you want to do is have fun but not spend too much, bars in Bandra will not disappoint you. Quite the antithesis of what Bandra is known to be.
