An intriguing mix of vintage and modern Mumbai, the Opium Den is the perfect place to slow down and savor a cocktail in this frenetic city by the sea.

Located just off the sea in mesmerizing Mumbai, you will find the luxurious Trident Nariman hotel. The hotel is positioned at one of the most scenic spots in the city, and just off the lobby of the Trident Nariman, is the Opium Den, an elegant bar that is one of the best places in Mumbai to relax over a cocktail in a laid back yet refined setting. Popular with locals, expatriates, and visitors alike, the Opium Den offers a small slice of old Mumbai, thoroughly updated for the 21st Century. The interior is full of dark woods, chunky candles, color-splashed couches, and assorted effects like vibrant pottery and a collection of rustic straw hats adorned to a wall. While open each day early, it picks up a buzz in the afternoon as guests and Mumbaikars retreat to the hotel after day of exploring the city or doing business. The patrons who grab a seat by the window that overlooks Marine Drive (and the sea that stretches beyond) are especially lucky, but all who order a drink here are in for a treat, as the cocktail menu is full of classics and a constantly rotating collection of up-to-the-minute infused specialties. Many of these mixes feature Indian spices like star anise and galangal – a cousin of ginger – and have included delights like the sweet and spicy Chili & Strawberry cocktail and Shrimp Martini in the past.
