“Our first time!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

The service was exceptional- granted we were only the second couple there on an off hour of an off day. never having tried Indian food before, we sampledseveral dishes from the appetizer menu. Great!

“High class bar in Big Bear Lake, CA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

The owner, Bob, has hand built the interior with solid wood. A very warm and friendly place to visit. This is a place where professionals can go and not be bothered by loud music or groups of loud people. Bob is a former professional musician from Newport, CA. I highly recommended Club Bombay. This establishment is American owned and operated. Kind of a "Cheers" atmosphere.

“Great Little Night Club”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

We love Club Bombay. My good friend and pianist, Mike Cross, plays there occasionally. Go when they have entertainment. It's fun, cozy, good drinks and decent prices. Say hi to Heather the bartender!

“My favorite Big Bear Pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2012

The place feels like the TV show "Cheers" looked like: very friendly owner and bartender (father-daughter combination). The bartender Heather is not only very skilled with mixed drinks, but also very friendly and a cheerful presence all evening long. Sometimes you'll find a second bartender, Monica -- also a sweetheart. It's on the upscale side for Big Bear, which I like, relaxed and a friendly, safe atmosphere.

Some nights there is music. The father, a former professional singer, has been known to join the band for a few tunes.

“Really fun place to hang out in the village”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2012

My boyfriend and I came upon this place by accident. We were looking for a cool place to have a glass of wine and listen to a live band. All of the other place we had passed by were either more like a club atmosphere or WAY too loud. This place was just perfect! It is run by a father and daughter team. The daughter was bartending this night. She was great! Very knowledgeable about wine and super friendly. They had a good wine selection, the band was great, the volume was not so high as to have to scream at whoever you were with in order to have a conversation. Perfect little place to hang and chat. The ambiance is really nice as well. Dim lighting and comfy furniture. At the end of the night we also had a wonderful blood orange martini with habanero salt. YUMM!!! Must try!
