LEOPOLD CAFE: SOMETHING DIFFERENT
Leopold started life way back in 1871 as a wholesale oil store. Over the years it metamorphosed into a restaurant and store, then to a restaurant and pharmacy and finally, in 1987 it took its present form. 1991 saw the advent of the pub upstairs. It was the second pub to open in Mumbai, and was then the biggest. Today the restaurant below is a very popular place, especially with foreign tourists who could comprise 60 to 70% of the clientele in the tourist season of October to March. It is the typical Irani restaurant but better maintained than most. The pub functions in two sessions, from 1.30 to 5 in the afternoon, and again in the evening. In the afternoons, it has basically the college crowd and the music is very much with the times. Evenings, the music starts by 6.30, playing mostly soft romantic numbers to begin with, and picks up tempo into the night. The clientele then sports more variety, from teenagers to the elderly. And so does the music. Leopold plays all kinds of music and refuses to slot itself. There is a smallish dance floor, though it does not mean that dance music is predominantly played. Monday night is the 'request night' and the customer calls the shots. And Wednesdays are 'retro nights' playing old numbers.
Timings: 1:30 pm to 5 pm; 6:30 pm to 12 midnight
