The Eastern suburbs have always been Mumbai's neglected stepchild when it comes to new openings. Being a resident of Powai this has been my pet peeve for ages. Since the last year though we have seen a slew of openings thanks to malls like R City and Neptune Magnet. And the latest one to join the bandwagon is Sports Box, a new sports bar at Neptune Mall, Bhandup that opens gates to public on Friday, 14th March. Sports Box, comes from the same company that managed Sports Bar at High Street Phoenix, Galaxy Entertainment, which is now part of the Future Group. The 3500 sq.ft. bar is spacious and lively with two giant screens and 5 LCD’s, a mini basketball court, pool tables, dartboards and punching bags. With T20 World Cup, IPL 7 and the FIFA World Cup, now eastern burbies have another place to hang out during matches. In terms of food, the bar offers regular multi-cuisine fare of snacks and mains. Some of the cocktails though, do sound interesting like Maria Sharapova ( a cool minty Vodka decoction flavored with either apple / mash melon) and Very Very Special ( a Tropical delight served frozen). Sports box plans to host live performances by artists, bands, DJ and karaoke nights in the coming months.
