Bombay Cocktail Bar, Andheri
In space-starved Mumbai, Andheri’s Bombay Cocktail Bar (BCB) comes as a relief. We headed there to try their specialty — the cocktails. Created by a well-known mixologist, the signature concoctions at BCB manage to hit the spot. We picked the two we liked the most!
1. Tipsy Kalakhatta
As far as dramatic cocktails go, The Tipsy Kalakhatta sits at the top of the list, right behind Nomayo. The drink is a take on the ubiquitous kala khatta gola found along the city’s beaches. It combines vodka, kala khatta syrup, cumin cocktail spice, lime juice, orange juice, and crushed mint leaves, all shaken and poured into a squat glass.
The drama comes in form of a jar filled with smoked and citrus-flavoured dry ice, placed next to the drink, which imparts it with lemony notes.
Price: ₹ 396

There is only one word to describe all night long potent- ‘Nomayo’. The drink brings together whisky, dark coffee and Red Bull, a combination that is bound to fill you with restless energy through the night. The cocktail is smoked with star anise and cinnamon, giving it an aromatic, spicy kick.

What you should try out is Chanel No. 6, a cocktail that comes in a beautiful perfume bottle. Talk about enticing!

4. Co-Cane Shot
This ‘Santorini’ of Andheri offers a wide variety of cocktails, including a lot of experimental ones. There’s the bong shot – where you first smoke (from the bong glass itself), and then take a shot of the drink and instantly get a happy high! But the coolest one is the co-cane shot! Yes, you heard it right! Sniff some coco and take a vodka based shot. Now that’s one of a kind!

5. Bloody Mary- The KODE Way
We normally talk about the food first, but guys the drinks here are served just like food! Have you ever heard of a three-course cocktail menu? We haven’t either! But we tried it out for the first time ever at Kode and we’re in love with the concept. The presentation of every cocktail is outstanding and deserves a standing ovation. If you’re not already an Instagrammer, KODE is going to turn you into one. Each drink is a masterpiece in itself – intriguing and whimsical. Here’s proof:
