Bandra is the place to be for buzzing nightlife spots in the city ; be it restaurants, bars, lounges or street shopping. I’m sure even if you go out every night to a new place in Bandra for three to four months, you will still have ,any places to cover on your list. This is due to the new restaurants, bars and lounges opening at different parts of the suburb. Similarly, 4Play- Bar and lounge recently opened its doors to the public last month.
Located in the same building as Only Parathas on Linking road, well lit it’s not something you can miss. The entrance to the place is little tricky, but once you enter the place you feel the vibe of being in a lounge/bar with the dim and night lights. The place is big, and has a huge TV screen, so this is an ideal place for all your sports screenings and/or other events. There is enough seating for about 50-70 people with an option of outdoor seating as well. If you would like to dance, indoors are perfect for you and you can head outdoors for little breaks every now and then.
The music is peppy however, it can be improved by adding a little Bollywood music every now and then. The starters are mediocre, do not miss the cheese croquettes here. Very few options for vegetarians but the paneer Tikka and stuffed mushrooms are good, too. The drinks are priced well, but I felt them too be too diluted. Make sure you tell the bartender to make your drink strong.
The location is perfect, the ambience is good (hopefully will be better once the place is all done up and ready), appetizers & drinks are very reasonably priced(cocktails starting from 400 INR and a pint of beer at 200 INR). I say you give 4Play – a shot the next time you are planning for your weekend or weekly dose of drinks or a quick catch up with friends.
