Chesta Wadhwani explores G-Spot.. the one in Chembur.entertainment Updated: Jan 09, 2009 15:36 IST
A nightlife in Chembur is a far cry.. given that the suburb doesn’t have a multiplex. So when G Spot opened its glass doors.. the prayers of local partygoers were answered. Enter the lounge (the thumping music can be heard at ground level) and a wacky set-up awaits you. Tables adorned with seductive pouting women, purple tinged walls and the high ceiling with dim lights add up to a zany ambience.
Music and more
The tiny bar glows despite the minimal lighting and is lined up with beige bar stools which give enough space to your er.. derriere (unlike the minuscule ones you spot in every second pub). The dungeon-like space, with orange sofas, stylish low seating and retro-themed couches make for an easy time, especially with the nonstop flow of Gimme gimme and World, hold on.
The DJ who knows his music, whips up remixed hip-hop numbers and chartbusters. And there’s enormous space for you to boogie. The blasting woofers do cut your conversations.. but who needs that with cocktails? A bartender, with a perpetual grin on his face, mixes the heady Margarita (Rs 300). The Cranberry Cooler (Rs 150) or the Fruit Punch (Rs 150) can keep you company till the starters arrive. Paneer in spicy variations, Sabzi Seekh kabab (Rs 185), Prawns Snowball (Rs 345) are passable.
The constant refilling of cheeselings, carrots and cucumbers had us full by the time the crunchy snacks arrived. The Paneer Koliwada (Rs 205) unlike the veg sushi or the Nori roll (Rs 300) are the better eats. Chicken Fingers (Rs 175) are lip-smacking. The total package, however, is a little too heavy on the pocket.
We had anticipated G-Spot to be a shady joint (what with a name like that). But thankfully we were greeted with a far cooler chilling zone. The place has everything spot on.. the super sound, the crazy décor, the plentiful cocktails.. if only the prices were a little on the friendly side. Never mind!
