Let three wise locals tell you how to spend it properly

The first thing you must do is go to a very small place in Kala Ghoda called the Magna Book Gallery & Nutrition Centre, tel: (91-22) 2267 1763. It’s an old café that most people don’t even know about, on the balcony of a bookshop. You’ll get very good herbal teas and sandwiches there, and it’s the perfect meeting place before going out for the evening.
From there, look around the Jehangir Art Gallery just next door. Artists show their new work all the time, and it’s also home to Café Samovar, tel: (91-22) 2204 7276. Try the parathas. Around 9, a very good place to go to in Lower Parel is called the Blue Frog, tel: (91-22) 4033 2300. It’s the ultimate in the contemporary-music scene in Mumbai right now. They have live music most nights, and you’ll discover completely unknown but very good bands. They also serve very good continental food.
