Nothing has such a celebratory and soothing effect on Indians as the Monsoon so to call your bar Rain is no small tribute. This swanky restaurant-lounge is the perfect place to take shelter from the Monsoon storms and it draws in Mumbai’s glam brigade by the hundreds. It can’t hurt that it’s located on the ground floor of Gigi Apartments, owned by Bollywood player Ranjeet Bedi. Food is an eclectic selection of New World cuisine, but it’s the swanky surrounds and eclectic drink selection that is the real draw. Innovative cocktails include delightful rum and vodka concoctions and we particularly liked their mojito. The fabulous, glamorous crowd are laid-back early on and get a little loud and flirty as the drinks start to flow. This has drawn complaints from the celebrity neighbours in the past but then they seem to be in here every other night anyway. No umbrella’s needed but Gold Amex wouldn’t hurt.
