Places in Bombay(mumbai) change their name constantly. So ask the Locals. Also Spots are 'IN' only for a few months , so ask the locals.
The latest night spot to come up in the city is 'Velocity', an 18000 sq. ft. club.
Velocity offers several bars (four at last count) including one catering to the retro crowd replete with 60's attired barmen!
Dress Code: Dress code in most Bombay nightspots is smart casuals. Most of the well heeled dress in black.
"Ghetto stands for rock, it stands for graffiti….," says Mr. Ravi Shetty, of The Ghetto. Both abound in this cosy pub at Mahahlaxmi, on Bhulabhai Desai Road. It almost exclusively plays rock and graffiti is all over the walls, merged with fluorescent, psychedelic murals. For over six years now, The Ghetto has maintained its image as not too frivilous, not too serious a pub. It aims at a clientele over 25 years of age, people who have grown up on rock and now have the money to do something about it. And with the music being mainly from the eighties, most teenyboppers get "repelled". The arrangement seems to suit everyone. There is no entry fee, though the establishment does admit to "scanning" its customers. It prides on being the essential pub and does not have the seemingly mandatory apology of a dance floor. Not a place for frenzied head banging this, more a place to relax and unwind over good, but not blaring, music.
Timings: 7 pm to 12:30 am
Credit cards are not accepted.
Pub with a dance floor" is how Club Abyss is best described. The theme here is 'submarine'. The décor comprises murals of the deep sea. And there are live fish also, in the aquariums near the entrance. The music the pub wishes to play is retro. They stick as far as possible, to the music of the eighties. Though, on weekends Abyss does confess to playing "commercial / popular music.” And also dance music towards the night. The crowd that comes is generally above 25, though a few teenyboppers also can be seen. They have a place on top for parties. Couples have free entry. Stags may be allowed on weekdays, but weekends are strictly for couples. The pub sees a lot of celebrities, especially the ones residing in the Bandra area.
Timings: 6:30 pm to 1:30 am
All credit cards accepted.

The phrase - 'city that never sleeps', goes right with the most-happening city of India, Mumbai. The sparkling conurbation gleams all the more in the hours of darkness, when lights illuminate and music reverberates in its streets. It's for sure that its rocking nightclubs would buoy up your bashing spirits. With the growing influence of western culture, copious numbers of nightclubs, discotheques, lounge and bars have turned up, enhancing the nightlife of Mumbai. Herewith, the nocturnal tourists have got a wide range of places to select from.
Besides the lounge parlors, discotheques entertain a big deal of night traffic in the city. You can hear the music of the perky DJs whilst swinging to their beats. Nightlife had always been active in Mumbai, but in the presence of silver-screen stars, leading millionaires and high-profile society, it has become even more happening. Lolling on low couch, seizing the soft cushions with soothing music and taking a sip of the premium liquor, doesn't that seem great? Yes, this and much more is awaiting you at the nightclubs of Bombay.

Dress Code: Cool Dress ..
Library Bar at the President, Three Flights Up at Gateway, Razzberry Rhinocerous at Juhu, J49 at Juhu, Club IX at Bandra, Leopold at Colaba Causeway, Ghetto at Mahalaxmi, Earthquake used to be a great place in Tardeo but now its shut :(. Thats about it. More listings in MidDay :)
Most places have a Cover charge adjustable against drinks and food. Weekends charges are obviously higher than weekdays. These places also shut early on weekdays and only some have dance floors.
Dress Code: Trendy clothes. But the basic idea is to dress smart, clean and presentable.
Three Flights Up (TFU)
My favorite place to hang out
70 feet long blue-lit entrance tunnel with matching runway lights leading upto the disc, longest (and the best) Bar
Dress Code: The crowd here is usually young. Ladies get free entry and do not even have to pay the cover charge
J49 after renovation, is now back with a bang. With techno, trance and new age music rocking the floor, bartenders doing a jig as they serve your order and Egyptian statues placed in discreet corners, your drink is just one of the many cool things around.
Those who like experimenting with their drinks, try the spiced tequila shots - served either in a bell pepper or with a chili in the glass, depending on your preference
Dress Code: Try looking good, it helps in getting a quick entry into the place that's usually full of young professionals and executives. Teenagers are strictly out, so all you young ones, wearing high heels won't help.
The A-Bar is just your typical hotel bar with nightly local entertainment.
The staff are friendly, the view is great and the entertainers are generally good and very friendly.
Dress Code: You can wear pretty much anything you like.
Founded in 1871 by Iranis, it first started out as a wholesale oil store, and over the years has variously been a restaurant and store, and restaurant and pharmacy. Today it is a multi-cuisine restaurant with a bar on the first level, and serves cuisines like, Indian, Western, Chinese, South American, etc., and beer and alcohol.
Dress Code: There is no Dress Code

As an Expat and regular visitor of famous Mumbai, I can basically recommend 3 different parts of the city to party, thats KOLABA (or COLABA), BANDRA and (of course) JUHU.
Well, this Spot is in Kolaba, and worth to mention. I was there on a Sat. night and like all nightlife spots in BOM this place is packed on saturdays.
Although "Red Light" sounds a bit "dingy", this club is seriously a place to dance and party.
What applies to all BOM clubs, is also true for "Red Light":
- It's easier (and cheaper) to come in as a couple (Bouncers like to keep the crowd balanced, so men are less welcome if they are alone or in a crowd of other blokes)
- Saturday the club is crowded like hell, You can barely dance
- Club closes around 3 in the morning
- Cover charge applies (1500,-- INR) but You'll get a full reward in coupons to buy drinks.
Music in Redlight is mixed from charts to 80's with a regular plunge into Bollywood hits.
Crowd is good, mainly 20th to 30th of age. Resident DJ's
Give it a try, if You are in Kolaba anyways and You want to avoid the long ride to Bandra or Juhu.
Dress Code: Men: Long trousers, no open footwear, sneakers o.k. (casual)
