Kino 108 can be a little tricky to locate, but once you do you’ll be glad you made the effort. Kino 108 likes to do things a little differently – it styles itself as Mumbai’s first ‘gastrobar’, basically tasty tapas-style snacks to complement your drinks – all to a soundtrack of proper retro rock music and not the ear numbingly loud Bollywood show tunes that most places to drink in Mumbai play.
This retro rock theme is not done lightly as given away by the large mural of Jim Morrison that greets you on arrival – instead, head for the bar and order up one of the delish basil-based cocktails or a stiff G&T. Retro music and an up-for-it crowd are guaranteed here as are friendly staff and regular happy hours.
Dancing is almost de rigeur, so throw on your glad rags to fit in. All in all, well worth the schlep to the ‘burbs.
