The country’s only surviving opera house recently reopened in Mumbai, hosting plays and musical performances that are always worth catching. The iconic structure, built in the 1900s, transports patrons back in time and is found smack-dab in the middle of a slew of IT companies, jewellery and metal stores.
Full disclaimer: this list is not solely for out-of-towners. Locals, too, will delight in our guide to the very best nightlife in Mumbai: in addition to highlighting the pubs, clubs and restaurants to flock to when the sun sets, we visit the art- and culture-related city attractions that make up the character of the city after hours.
Catch a play, gaze at art, play VR games, eat a ton of delicious street food or opt for a more traditional night out on the town, filled with loads of dancing and drinking. Whatever it is that you are craving, Mumbai will deliver.
