This month, Bombay Vintage takes the charm and cheap drinks out of the the city's Gymkhanas, and into its Colaba restaurant space.

Welcome to Gymkhana Hours (all days of the week, 4 to 8 pm), where the menu will feature drinks at half the price, along with Gymkhana style appetizers and mini meals inspired by the British Raj. Vegetarians, we recommend the Papdi Tuk Chat, Crispy Crunchy Shoestring Onions and Bambaiya Style Masala Toast Sandwich (perfect for the monsoon when you'd rather not nosh on the street!), and those who like their feasts meatier can look towards the Chicken Liver Masala Fry, Bohri Mutton Samosa, Bheja Na Cutlet, Chicken Facha and more.

It also makes sense to opt for the mini meals: Dabbawala Misal Pav, Irani Keema Pav, Komdi Vade, Vegetarian or Chicken Tawa Biryani.

Meanwhile, you'll find us at the bar where everything is half off! The deal applies on beers, wine, straight drinks, but this might be a fun time to try a rainbow of cocktails: our favourites here include the Classic Gin Martini, Old Fashioned, Skinny Piña Colada and Tamarind Sour.

Wanna be our gym(khana) buddy?

Getting there: Bombay Vintage, Opposite Regal Cinema, Indian Mercantile Mansion, Regal Circle, Madame Cama Road, Colaba, call 022 22880019.
