Mumbai - Restaurants | Clubs & Bars

Let's use this thread to track the latest from the city's hotel, restaurant, bar & club scene. Now, this space is not limited to new openings, so let's try to include as many of Bombay's old favourites as well. Feel free to share interesting reviews you may have come across, or even post your own. Please refrain from posting pictures of local and international fast food chains here.


I find http://mumbaiboss.com/category/food/ and http://bpbweekend.com/food-and-drink/ to be most useful when I'm stuck.

Great idea KB!

General Hotel Management Ltd (GHM) has announced plans for a new 42-suite luxury hotel, The Aayu Mumbai, which will also feature restaurants by the world’s most decorated chefs, JoŽl Robuchon and Hide Yamamoto.
Scheduled to open in December 2013, the all-suite hotel will occupy the top five floors of the 50- storey Kohinoor Square’s Central Tower.
The Aayu Mumbai will house Mumbai’s highest bar on the 50th floor’s rooftop terrace, which will boast a swimming pool and deck with ocean views. The 49th floor will have a library lounge, a bar, cigar and cognac lounge, an exclusive malt bar and a boardroom. Guests will also get to relax with a spa treatment in their own room.
Offering contemporary French and Japanese cuisines, the two restaurants at The Aayu Mumbai will be India’s first by JoŽl Robuchon and Hide Yamamoto. L’Atelier de JoŽl Robuchon—when it opens—will be the eighth in the world, and will also offer a tea lounge, pastry shop and collection of wines picked exclusively by Robuchon himself. Hide Yamamoto’s restaurant will feature exquisite Japanese cuisine, including its charcoal Robata grill, homemade ramen noodle bar and sushi and sake counter.
GHM has also planned to open The Chedi Club Suzhou in China and The Chedi Andermatt in Switzerland by the end of 2013.

That's good news. Currently, the only quality Jap restaurants are Wasabi, Kofuku, and Hakkasan.

The current operator, Hong Kong-based Shangri-La Hotels & Resorts, would hand over the hotel to the asset owner Pallazzio Hotels and Leisure on Sept 6.

Phoenix Mills’ (PML) flagship luxury hotel in Mumbai is up for grabs.

Global hospitality majors, including Starwood, Marriott and Hyatt, are said to be engaged in hectic negotiations with the asset owner, Pallazzio Hotels and Leisure, a unit of Phoenix Mills.

The current operator, Hong Kong-based Shangri-La Hotels & Resorts, would hand over the hotel to Pallazzio on September 6, 2013. Earlier this week, Pallazzio and Shangri-La decided to mutually terminate the 20-year management contract after operating the luxury hotel for nine months.

Shishir Shrivastava, Group CEO and joint managing director, PML, did not respond to a query on the new international hotel operator/brand.

Industry sources said Starwood is a strong contender for the new management contract. Marriott and Hyatt are equally aggressive pursuing the matter, said one of the sources.

“These chains certainly are front-runners but then the hotel owners could be practically speaking to every possible operator,” the source said.

The current discussions with the asset owner are an indicator that a new hotel operator is yet to be finalised as against PML’s claims of already having someone on board.

Officials at both Starwood Hotels & Resorts and Marriott International said they were not in a position to comment.

Responding to a dna email, a Hyatt International spokesperson said, “The company is not in the race for the management contract at this time.”

There’s also some buzz that the hotel in question will join Starwood’s ‘Westin’ network. Interestingly, Pune-based Avinash Bhosle Group owns a 27% stake in PML’s Mumbai hotel and already has Starwood as the operator for its five-star hotel in Pune under the Westin brand. Its another upcoming property in Goa will also be managed by Starwood under the ‘W’ brand.

PML will have to take a final call on the new operator at the earliest.

This is because the Indian hospitality industry is set to enter the peak business season starting October and not having a hotel operator will make it very challenging for the asset owners.

Takes one thread like this to bring down project centric website that Mumbai is - its impossible to make out the projects with the hundreds of of "eateries" "bistros" etc thread that clutter other cities (kochi,bangalore, hyderabad chennai being specific examples - they almost started a thread that tracked Birthday and marriage halls - they're almost all like one giant Chaibar) - please dont do that here post whatever you find in Mumbai Discussions!!!

I don't get what the fuss is about when the thread title description clearly states what goes in here.

There used to be a thread along the same lines as this one somewhere in this section, and an effort to resurrect it proved futile as it was most likely lost in the last SSCI reorg. IU and I thought it'd be a good idea to start a new one given how many new, quality establishments have opened up in the city in the recent past.

My opinion is that rather than putting up pics of the cuisines and food, this thread should concentrate on the interior and exterior pics of the restaurants and hotels, cz for the food pics there is a dedicated thread of food-pics only.

Dont take it personally mate!!

I just fear a thread like this acts as a precursor to "Lets track all meetings" , "lets track all restaurants", "lets track all the lakes around", "lets track all the cinemas", "Lets track marriage halls" - soon the entire thread becomes these flood of little threads that finally drown the U/C, SITEPREP, APP projects that makes Mumbai look so international!!

Its the reason why I avoid going to most other cities threads because its impossible to discern projects from all those auxilliary threads - which end up mostly opinionated discussions! Just look at Kochi Hyderabad and Bangalore threads - wonderful cities whose real projects get drowned in the noise ! And I'm orignally frm Bangalore!!

Once people see project related threads pushed to periphery - they stop focusing on those and start getting into these auxiliary threads - whose importance i dont want to reduce but not at the cost of core projects.

Just look at Dubai, Shanghai threads - for cities that have enough projects - Its better to keep them international - and mumbai is the only city in all of India threads that comes close to those!

We have enough members who focus solely on project related threads, which always has been, and will continue to be the focus of our discussions here on SSCI. I don't see how a thread on restaurants and hotels in India's largest city could possibly steal the show from all the project related threads in this section, and as India's commercial capital and city of global importance, it's high time we had a thread on the burgeoning hotel and restaurant scene.

I agree with Henchman about putting up more interior and exterior photos than pictures of food and drink.

Sounds good to me as well.

Let's also exclude snaps that just show models at the gym, sunbathing besides the pool or getting treated at the local spa center.

Thanks

For a moment, I though you said you wanted to INCLUDE pictures of girls and make it an exception and I had a good laugh about it. But then, you didn't. LOL. But I agree, they are irrelevant and distracting.

For some reason, I too understood it that way. That means nightclub pics wont make it here. Moreover, it is too personal to post pics of nightclubs. Except for those without people which appear in the official websites.
