The Instagrammable Bar Crawl

Today eating out or for that matter drinking out is more about the entire experience. Aesthetics play an important role and restaurants and bars are going all out to woo the discerning and demanding customer with their quirky presentations. This Instagrammable Bar Crawl covers five bars in the Mumbai suburbs which serve some interesting and Instagram worthy cocktails. So hop on board but let me warn you that this may leave you crawling back home because of the heady concoctions that lie ahead of you! Cheers!

Asado- The Cocktail Street, Bandra West

Brace yourself for some innovative and fun cocktails at Asado. Fancy drinking your cocktail out of a cowboy hat instead of a regular pitcher? Or a treasure chest that all your friends can sip out of? These rum based cocktails are a great way to kickstart your evening!

Social Offline, Khar West

Social has been very popular for its wierd presentations of cocktails, so the list would be incomplete without it. From the Social Signatures (the Cosmo Explosion makes for a nice video) to the Longest Long Island Iced tea, Social has plenty of intriguing drinks to spruce up your Instagram profile.

Zoobar, Vile Parle West

This place is more suited for beer lovers because of Bira, White Owl beer et al available on tap. But it also serves some really great red wine sangria in cute mason jars.  Psst! If you go on Wednesday, sangrias are on the house thanks to Ladies Night 🙂

True Tram Trunk, Juhu

You’ll probably be too damn drunk to even pronounce True Tram Trunk when you reach this place, so maybe we’ll stick to the abbreviation T3. Try the Iced Golaritas and the cocktails served in desi daaru bottles and you will not be let down. Play some fun drinking games at the table and it will be a night to remember or maybe not :p

Glocal Junction, Lokhandwala, Andheri West

Desi meets international at this fusion bar serving a quirky drink or two. The cocktails vary from negroni with a paan twist to vodka with edible flowers to whisky poured over a zesty orange peel flavoured ball of ice. With some great desi music, this place marks the perfect end to this tipsy bar crawl. So Happy Drinking and Happy Dancing 🙂
