Over the last few weeks despite spurts of rain, several dry days, religious holidays and the infamous Mr.Dhoble, Mumbai’s party spirit seems alive and kicking. As if to prove a point to our favourite moral policeman, four new bars have opened in and around Bandra. So if you’re in the mood for a drink (and are above 21 years of age) you have some new bars to choose from.

The Hungry Birds: New Wine, New Bottle
You probably won’t be happy about this if you were a WTF patron, but this popular watering hole has now been replaced by The Hungry Birds. Although, it seems like not much has changed about the menu or the decor. The food is designed to nibbled on while you drink and there’s nothing there for the true gourmands. What inspired the change is a bit puzzling.

The Pint Room: A Gift For Guzzlers
If you’re a beer guzzler, then the name itself will draw you to The Pint Room, the new Linking Road branch of the Delhi based brand. The name is fitting, as they aim to serve every beer available in the city and currently they serve about 30 to chose from, which is not bad at all. The ambiance is bright and cheerful; a variation from the usual dingy, low-lit bar atmosphere. It’s more like a coffee shop that sells beers. If you’re tired of yelling over loud music while you try to hold a conversation, then you’ll enjoy guzzling at The Pint Room.

Three Wise Monkeys: No Monkey Business Here
The first among the lot here to open was Three Wise Monkeys at the Unicontinental, very close to Khar station. This place is designed to be like an English pub, with wood interiors and vintage accessories. They do some quirky things in an effort to stand out, like serving beer in globes and barrels that can be suspended above the table. The beer is served at pretty affordable rates, starting at Rs.140, which is always appreciated. Interestingly Three Wise Monkeys is located right next to sea food restaurant called Twisted Fish, which is owned by the same people. Besides a shared management the two places have nothing in common; the latter serves Indian coastal food.

Ren, By China Garden: Oriental Twist
Ren located above China Garden, is a lavish bar and Chinese restaurant which seems to have sparked an interest among the page three people, many of whom were at the launch a few weeks ago. The main attraction at Ren is  the thirty foot long bar and over-the-top interiors complete with Oriental motifs. The food has definitely not been ignored, and there’s a lot to choose from. Ren is pretty expensive, and a meal for two will cost about Rs.4000. They also have a cover charge of Rs.2500 per head.

Which one of these have you visited?
