Perched on the ground level of Birla Centurion is the recently launched Playboy Club of Mumbai – one of the best downtown clubs and one of the hardest to get in! Lounging across 8000 sq. ft. of lavishness, this upscale party hotspot is an Invite Only Club frequented by many VVIPs. Some of which include the most prominent entrepreneurs, actors and advertising professionals of Mumbai. Play Boy Club with its bunny-dressed waitstaff, 90s music and scintillating dance floor drives, the clubbing experience on to a whole new level.
Who is playing the music? Well! Since its launch in 2016, the audio console of Playboy has had megastars like Shadow, Carnage, Arjun Rampal, Candella and Chuck Wonderland, persuading crowds to sway to their high-energy sets. Besides great music, Playboy Club Mumbai also offers excellent services including, delicious food and beverages. The grand VIP club room has a designated staff, shall you be planning to host a get-together or a private party. Otherwise, the venue hosts three first-class bars with mixologists concocting different types of drinks.
I was invited to review this new favourite club of South Mumbai by Yezdi Irani, and I had so much fun being here. My favourite, though, was the hovering lights resembling a UFO. And No, I am not drunk talking! The positioning of the ceiling and the lighting crafts indescribable impressions, and it is pretty awesome to gaze at! I largely spent my time watching laser lights dance to the tunes of shiny disco balls. I danced too! Mostly, within the confines of the subdued velvet ropes of my table! Something about retro music, you simply cannot help slip into golden memories of the Vintage era.
The foundation of the 1st-PBC was set down in the 1950s when the brand acquired its rabbit-head logo. In the 1960s, the very first Playboy Club lanced in Chicago. The rest was history! Over succeeding years, PBC evolved as a Gentleman’s Brand and launched, Playboy Magazine which became an instant hit with the affluent. In Mumbai, the Playboy Club is committed to curating crazy weekends. From a great line up of DJs to an excellent choice of food and drinks, this sure is the club I want to visit every weekend.
Food and Beverage Recommendation
Here I relished the Signature Playboy Potion, which is a chilli cocktail bursting with delicious flavours. This vodka-based drink, infused with fresh strawberries, red chillies and lime juice, tastes like chillies for the most part. A very unusually tasty concoction! (Definitely a must-try!) Another beverage, worth sampling is the Mid Summer Iced Tea, a refreshing cocktail of rum, vodka, gin, tequila, triple sec, red bull and blue curacao.
From the finger food selection, I savoured the chef-special Kosher Salt and Cayenne Pepper Chicken. For this dish, the chef uses a special chicken imported from China. If you love spicy food, then the Thai green curry Kushiyaki Cottage Cheese with papaya salad is a must-have. Those who want to munch on a single snack all night, go for the crispy fried chicken basket with the signature house dip. The options are endless! By and large, a great experience curated by Yezdi Irani, who lets you BE the party! Can’t wait to return and burn my dancing shoes!
