The music scene in Mumbai is definitely getting more exciting. Great music, food, and ambience are undoubtedly the staples that people look for in a pub. However, increasing number of people seem to be frowned by the DJ music and developing a taste for live music. In line with this thought, we bring some exciting venues in Mumbai where you can catch up with live music spanning multitude of genres such as indie, electronic, pop, and even Sufi. The Blue Frog, Lower Parel In the cluster of pubs in the city, the Blue Frog carves its own niche, bringing in the experience of both national and international musicians. In this club, curiosity about food perhaps takes a backseat as the ambience itself overwhelms you immensely. It is both contemporary and soothing at the same time, and the acoustics here make for an amazing experience. A great place to unwind and de-stress yourself. This 6000-square feet warehouse is dedicated to the love of music and plays host to music from all genres in the world.

Hard Rock Café, Worli If you fancy American music, food, and culture, then we cannot press you enough about Hard Rock Café. Since it was first introduced in Mumbai in late 2006, it has been an epicentre of all musical performances. The place might posture itself mainly as musical venue, but don?t let it delude you; the food here is equally serious. The burgers in at HRC still have patrons vouching for them to be the best in city. The café is commodious, and spread over two levels. Hop in for some Classic Rock on Thursday nights and Alternative Rock on Tuesdays.

Firangi Paani, Andheri Firangi Paani is one of the oldest pubs in the vicinity of Andheri. The pub might be fading in people?s memories, but it still hasn?t lost its flavour. True to its name - Firangi Paani means ?foreign waters? - the ambience of this pub is quintessentially English; dark polished wood, leathered upholstered chairs bedeck this space. The impressive placement of mirrors and glass gives it a cosy, old-world charm. Beautiful music from contemporary genres fills this space. Moreover, Firangi Paani is one of the few places in the town favoured by live bands.
