ROCK BOTTOM

In our first edition we take a look at one of the newer nightspots in Mumbai. Rock Bottom, started by the trio who started Rain; Raman, Gaurav and Vicky, is situated a stones throw away from Rain at Hotel Guestline. Rock Bottom has been Mumbai's most vibrant destination in the past couple of months. This is one place where the party never dies. Rock Bottom has a great JBL sound system and offers a diverse spectrum of music styles, ranging from progressive house, up-tempo lounge and new-age funk to ambient trance, Asian break beat and drum & bass. They have a variety of starters and drinks. The 6,000 Sq. Ft. expanse of Rock Bottom gives one enough space to dance comfortably and to get to the bar (and loo) without the usual scramble.

Cover charge varies from Rs. 800 - Rs. 1,200 per couple
