Mumbai’s famous floating restaurant near Bandra-Worli sea link Ark Deck Bar sank at 7.15 PM on 25th May, 2018.
What Is It?
Launched in January 2018, Ark Deck & Bar was Mumbai’s very own floating offering an extraordinary dining experience in the middle of the sea. Been around only for five months, reports indicate that the ship sank on May 25, 2018 due to anchorage issues.
What Do We Know?
Due to change in weather and current, the restaurants officials were going to call the workings off for the restaurant before the monsoon hits, but it met with a great tragedy on Friday. According to the officials at Maharashtra Maritime Board, the anchor moved from its original place because of unpredictable currents from the sea and hit a rock. There are also speculations that due to the big tidal waves of the Mekuni Cyclone, the anchor lost its control.
There were at least 15 people on the ship at that time, but they have been successfully brought to the shore. There have been no casualties in this case and people have escaped with minor injuries.
Along with Ark Deck bar, there are 2 more floating restaurants in Mumbai namely AB Celestial and Mumbai Maiden. Both of which are scheduled to be non-functional and moved to the shore before the monsoons hit.
