Link: Aura, Powai, Mumbai, Discotheque on burrp! Mumbai.

Aura is a classy watering hole and cigar bar located in the heart of the beautiful Hiranandani buildings. The general locale gets quite crowded on weekend evenings, but with Aura’s price point, it becomes a nice retreat from the everyday hustle bustle outside. The Mediterranean themed restaurant has a nice atmosphere, wide selection of bar drinks, and a well-maintained cigar-bar/menu as well. I wasn’t impressed with the menu, but we were not there for dinner anyways. They have 2-for-1 happy hour deal with Indian alcohol between some early evening hours – the Kingfisher drinkers with us took advantage of that.

All in all, if you are in Powai and are looking to get away from the bowling alley crowd, escape to Aura for a few drinks. You will be pleasantly surprised.
