“The idea is to get drunk, really drunk ;)” – said Abhishek, one of the barhoppers at My Bar HQ. Ladies and gentlemen, let me present to you…. the Bombay Barhoppers, an idea that I imagine was conceptualized while drunk because it speaks straight to the hearts of men and women alike. The Bombay Barhoppers are two people who like to see other people happy, and what makes everyone smile without any reason? That’s right… Daaru! Everybody has their own drunken story but if you wish to up the ante, you can rely on Bombay Barhoppers to create the perfect itinerary for your bitter and sweet alcoholic journey.
On a Sunday, around 30 barhoppers hopped into My Bar HQ at 8:30 PM in Connaught Place to experience the Bombay Barhopper life. The event was well organised and people were great to talk to. We, at GoBuzzinga were also invited to be a part of this get together. If you have been to My Bar at Paharganj, then you can easily find the major differences between the two. This one is more spacious and has an open and vibrant ambience. It sort of fills you up with energy which some people would say was missing at Paharganj. Contrary to the dingy environment and open smoking, My Bar HQ has a separate smoking room (though hookahs can be done anywhere). Another buzzing feature of My Bar HQ is a huge beatbuster DJ station decorated with those uber cool things you get when you break open your speakers into several pieces. Just a glance at it would make you want to shake a leg.
We started with a tower of strong draught beer which brewed our taste buds and made us want even more of that golden brown goodness. I’m old school and I usually have Masala Peanuts with beer. Somehow the spiced mix of onion, tomato and the smooth taste of peanuts go well with alcohol for me. From what I had heard, I expected some sort of drinking games like Fubar, Pass a shot, Quarters, etc, to be a part of the whole Bombay barhopper experience but sadly it wasn’t. On the bright side, we did have a very short photo booth session where people felt like really expressing themselves against the smoothly lit wall. Here are some pictures of the place. Through the crowd I also spotted this badass hookah shaped like an AK47 gun. Have a look 😀
Since, time was of the essence and we had already skipped Monkey bar an hour earlier due to various reasons, we decided to leave for Route 04 (the third and final place on the list). A place in CP famously known for an entrance exhibit of a Mechanised Metal Statue of Bumblebee from Transformers! Route 04 seemed a perfect end to the whole Barhopping journey. The place opens up with a bar at the center. It felt a little cramped but the seats were nicely placed along the staircase and on both sides of the bar. The place was decorated by little figurines of statue of liberty. We started with a tower of beer. AGAIN!! haha.. because that’s our favourite. By now, we all had mingled well with each other. The beer was nice, the pizza was delicious and the people were great.
In Delhi, it happened the first time and as Varun from Noida puts it. “It’s a nice place and a different experience. People in Bombay know a lot more about Bombay Barhoppers and maybe a little participation would help.” Indeed Barhopping is better with more and more people. But I would like to say that the concept is one of a kind and makes meeting new people a lot more fun. I can see that it is going to be THE most buzzing thing in town soon. Happy Drinking!!!
