Hg2 : The Hedonist

Sea Lounge

The legendary Sea Lounge – a classy tea room if there ever was one – overlooks the scenic Mumbai harbour and the Gateway of India. If you’ve just arrived and want to feel like you’re in Mumbai, come here – it’s the ultimate experience in terms of history and ambiance, the piano will surely be playing and the spirit of the Taj will be in full force.

For many, this is the place to drink a cuppa, read a newspaper, and catch up with friends. So make like a Mumbaikar, take a seat on one of the comfy chairs, tuck into a Bombay toastie and order up some single estate tea. Hint, do not come here in your shorts and sandals or you’re likely to feel completely upstaged as it’s smart-casual here, at least. Lastly, do your best to bag a window seat, even if it means a wait – it’s well worth it.
