Olive Bar & Kitchen
May 11, 2018
The hippest hangout in trendy Bandra, north Mumbai, popular with models and Bollywood stars not to mention cricketing demi-Gods like Sachin and Kapil. You get LA-style valet parking at the entrance where hanging vines and creepers tumble over the whitewashed walls, and you enter to find a lush oasis that’s more The Ivy than India. There’s a pebble dash garden with low tables and chairs outside to eat or drink at and a restaurant and sunken bar inside where the rest of the glamour set gather. Every cocktail you can think of is served by smiling green-uniformed barmen ‘hello Raj’ and the menu is continental and classy. Concentrate on your drink though: when you see the dusky beauties packing in here it’s easy to lose your composure. Music is from Hindi to trip-hop and back.
