The first licensed bar in Mumbai
Harbour Bar | The Taj Mahal Palace, Mumbai
Opened in 1933, the Harbour Bar has the distinction of being the first licensed bar in the city. The license plate used to be displayed prominently and proudly at the entrance of the original Harbour Bar. Harbour Bar looks out on the Gateway of India, a monument built to commemorate the visit of King George V and Queen Mary in 1911. This is the historic waterfront of Mumbai.
Warm interiors, intimate seating, luxurious appointments and mood lighting at the Bar creates a relaxed environment for pre and post-dinner drinks.
In the old days the bar had a very clubby nautical feel, closed in with wooden floors and a makeshift wooden bar. Now the image has changed.
The wood has given way to some exquisite marble, the floor has been raised so that from the comfortable art deco chairs clientele can view the harbor -- surely one of the most iconic sights in the city with its boats, yachts and ships bobbing in rhythm on the ocean waves. The trellis has been removed and a massive marble bar has been placed by the entrance.
