The head barman has 41 years up with the Taj, proud rightly so ! this is the oldest bar in Mumbai. He recommended beers to us, made some small talk and some jokes. When this fellow retires he will be missed at the Taj.

With 41 years of loyal service to the Taj Mahal Palave, Mr Mistery or Mystery gave us the most brilliant advice, history of the hotel and fascinating conversation. The Harbour Bar will not be the same without him when he retires.
