1. Sink into the beauty of the Queen’s necklace
The Marine Drive deserves a special mention when we talk about the nightlife in Mumbai. This is one of the most spectacular places to visit in Mumbai.
What better than sitting by the bay! With the busy city on one side and the pleasant waters on the other, leaving behind the noise of the city and sinking into the silence of the waters, this definitely is one place that you would never get bored of. When the lights at night light up the c-shaped lane, it looks stunning, like a jewel. This is what gives the place the name “Queen’s necklace”. Alone or with your loved one, do not miss the experience that this ethereal place that perfectly exemplifies the city nightlife.
2. Bachelors for an ice cream
After you have filled enough of the fresh bay air in your lungs, after relaxing at the marine drive, you can grab an ice cream at the Bachelors. This is a small ice cream corner in Marine Drive. It also serves some of the best fresh juices. And the good news is, this ice cream place stays open till 4 am.
3. A night cruise in the Arabian Sea
Mumbai is one city that offers the stylish lifestyle of a metro and also the benefits of living in a coastal city. There are beaches, and there are cruise trips too! Mumbai night cruise is one of the most interesting things to do in Mumbai at night. If you are planning a romantic night out, what better than taking your loved one out on a cruise, dining under the night sky!
4. Gateway at night!
Visiting the Gateway of India at night can be so much different no matter how many times you have been here during the day. Lack of the usual crowd, the soft light lighting up the majestic structure, the silence of the Arabian Sea together can work wonders on your mood and is very different from the usual nightlife in Mumbai.
5. Before you board your train
Once you have spent some quiet few minutes at the Gateway, you can then sink into the architecture of the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus Railway Station that looks like an ethereal dream with the lighting at night.
6. Let your adventure streak take over and take the local trains
As the night darkens, the local trains slowly start getting empty. The real essence of the city cannot be felt till you have traversed in the Mumbai local trains. Late at nights, local trains are pretty empty. So if you are with a large group of friends, taking the local is one of the best things to do to experience the nightlife in Mumbai.
7. Pogo stick tour
If you are looking to do something unique, one great way to make an evening memorable is by choosing the Pogo Stick tour available in Thane. This is an interesting way to explore the city nightlife.
8. Cycling tours
City cycling tours are other great options for the night time tourists. Why travel the usual way when you can hop on a bicycle and start a guided tour and explore the city as the traffic slowly winds down and the night settles in? Mumbai would appear so much different from “Mumbai” if you tour the city on a bicycle or a pogo stick at the calm of the night.
9. Vasai Fort under the stars
This is one of the tourist spots in Mumbai that stays open until 11 PM. Located on the outskirts of North Mumbai, this is a secluded place that you could reach by taking a train to the Vasai Road. A short bus trip would then take you to this place. It is a nice escape from the noisy city atmosphere. The architecture of the place is sure to impress you. The moonlight can do wonders in adding to the beauty of this place.
