Hooking-up in Mumbai for NYE 2006

Welcome && Swagatam!

I presume that most folks here came from "Mumbai on New Years Eve" thread. If not, that's ok too. This thread topic was motivated by the thread I just mentioned. The "Mumbai on New Years Eve" thread primarily discusses WHERE to find great parties in mumbai. If you go through all the posts (some 50 so far) in that thread, you come up with one name: ENIGMA @ JW Mariotts. So, THAT'S WHERE THE ACTION IS THIS NYE!!

As I was reading through the other thread I noticed a slight hint of some people wanting to hookup in mumbai. However, not much light was shed on the topic (as it was not the main focus of that thread).

Well, here I am to do the honors. I would like to suggest the following Format for this Topic:

- Time/Duration in Mumbai

- From

- # of people in the party

- Background

- Plans

- Still looking for

- Hooking-Up Preferences

- What to come-out with at the end of NYE

- contact

- disclaimer

Note: This is a rough/starter format. Please feel free to add other informative headers.

So, based on the above format, here's my info:



Dec 28 - Jan 2 (5 nights)


Durham, NC, USA




Married couple in early & mid 30's. Based in Durham, NC, USA. for last 17+ years. We are the perfect balance of West & the East in terms of our culture and likings. We LOVE Bolly && Holly WOOD.


My wife and I are looking to see the mumbai "beyond the caves". That is, we are not interested in victorian architecture, museums, etc. We are looking for the best eXperience in the following categories:

- Dining:: Upscale and Authentic with the right "ambiance"

Ambiance bole-toh - Upscale can be the trendiest

restaurants etc. Authentic can be the dhaabas hidden

deep within the big city.


Kandahar @ Oberoi, Indigo, Zenzi, Mani's Dosa,

Bade Miya, Khyber-Khyber

- Shopping:: Same deal as above. No, I don't mean shopping @

dhaabas. We're looking for upscale as well as value



- Clubbing:: Don't get us started with dat!! That's the essence of

why we're really coming to Mumbai!! We're in for

checking out the trendiest of trendiest cl/p-ubs.


1. Enigma at JW Mariotts

2. Poison

3. Shiro

4. Insomnia

Others: Vie, Rain, Olive

- Site-seeing:: Food/Snacks is usually our "angle" when it comes

to site seeing :-)


- Gateway of India,

- Elephanta Island Cruise,

- Chowpatty & Juhu Beach (chaat-shaat)


- GOOD HOTEL to stay at. Mariott quoted me $2500 USD. A

bit steep I might say. Can anyone recommend?


- Would love to spend the NYE w/ KooL folks

- Would also love good company to watch 1 or 2 bollywood movies

in one of the premier theatres

- Would love to hang-out in general (see plans section)


- Best NYE to-date

- Some good friends that we can hook up the year after :)

- One helluva MUMBAI eXperience


Email: sushant@yahoo.com


This post has gotten a bit long. So, I didn't take time-out to proof read. Please overlook "speeling" and/or grammatical errors.

Above are my details and plans for mumbai during NYE. Please post yours if you're interested in hooking up. Cheers.

Hi Samira, Thanks for the response. Couple of questions for you:

- Can you suggest a good hotel that's located close to mariott?

I checked out Mariott and they're bit expensive ($2500 USD for 3

nights) .

- Are you guys interested in hanging out either for the New Year's

or just otherwise. If so, what's the best way to contact you guys

once we're in the area. I'm planning on getting a cell phone in next

couple of days. If you're interested I can email that to you.

Meanwhile, you can contact me at sushant@yahoo.com
