Whether you’re looking for some air or breathtaking views of the Arabian Sea and the city’s skyline, these super stylish and happening rooftop bars in Mumbai are all set to make your night out truly memorable.

1. AER

Bar, Cocktails

Overlooking the bustling streets of historic Worli, the swanky AER covers the entire roof of the Four Seasons Hotel, Mumbai. The 34th-floor open-air lounge is a memorable place to spend your weekend nights, even during the city’s crippling monsoons when it comes with a canopy and windscreen. The unbeatable view, lush cocktails, and on-point music are all reasons you should head here for your next drinking session.

2. The Dome

Bar, Restaurant, Pub Grub, Indian

The Dome at the InterContinental Hotel in Churchgate is yet another ritzy rooftop bar with spectacular views of the Arabian Sea and South Mumbai’s stunning coastline. If you are looking for a magical night sipping delicious drinks under the open skies and looking down at traffic on Marine Drive, this is where you should be heading.

3. Escobar – Tapas Bar

Bar, Italian, Mexican

Escobar – Tapas Bar is a happening spot on Linking Road; it doesn’t just have one of the longest bars in the country but also one of the best rooftop spaces in the Bandra/Khar area. Combine the stunning views with particularly delicious food, great service, and music, and Escobar is one of the best spots to unwind on a Saturday night in the city.

4. Bonobo

Bar, Pub, Nightclub, Indian, Mexican, Italian

If you are looking to pair your open-air drinking adventure with fantastic live music, then this chill bar right off of Linking Road is where you should go for a fun night out. This cozy bar regularly hosts some of the country’s best DJs and musicians, in addition to organizing fun themed nights. Bonobo’s fantastic fusion menu is also likely to delight foodies.

5. Bar Stock Exchange

Bar, Beer

If you’re on a budget and seeking a rooftop bar that won’t cost you an arm and a leg, then Bar Stock Exchange’s Colaba outlet is where you should go. With alcohol prices going up and down as per supply and demand, you may get to endlessly sip on decent liquors and beers for below INR 100. The bar’s roof area, though relatively small, offers an excellent view of the adjacent bustling lanes of beautiful Colaba, in addition to good music and delicious food.
