AER Mumbai - For that sundowner

They even have a music calendar where artists and DJs will drum out live hits.

India Jones – For that happy stomach
Your next stop should be the restaurant India Jones at Trident hotel in Nariman Point, Mumbai. Offering an Asian menu influenced by Vietnam, Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Indonesia and Japan, it’s their Teppanyaki skills which pulled us to them. Sit at India Jones’ Teppanyaki counter and watch as Chef Eduardo not only grills the chow expertly, but also takes time out to throw some knives and fire in a spectacular show! It’s definitely worth a few Instagram stories. So while your stomach is getting nourished, your brain is getting fed too with some exceptional culinary acrobatics.

ITC Maratha, Mumbai – For that rare dessert
There are multitude dessert options in Mumbai – each better than the next. But none can match up to the allure of a rare chocolate variety – the ruby chocolate. While we were savoring the Dark, Milk and White chocolates, the Ruby chocolate was nestled in the cocoa gardens of Brazil, Ecuador and Ice Coast, oblivious to the world’s eye. After being discovered and perfected over the past 13 years, Ruby chocolate is available to chocolate connoisseurs of the world now. It has a rich red colour, a unique aroma and is a torrent of fruity, tangy flavours in your mouth. Fabelle, the chocolate boutique from ITC Hotels, has created its own recipe to present this new chocolate variety – the Ruby Gianduja. Probable one of the only places to offer Ruby chocolate in India, make your way to ITC Maratha’s Fabelle store to pick up a box and munch it with a merlot. Can’t get more special than this.
