There is hardly anything more romantic in the entire city of Mumbai than the Dome Bar at the top of the Intercontinental Marine Drive.
Perched on the 8th floor, the rooftop bar boasts some of the best views over Marine Drive and the Arabian Sea.
The lift opens out to an open air lounge and terrace bar with light music, snacks and drinks available. On occasions I have seen the Wii out on the big screen for spot of friendly tennis.
Turn right out of the lift and up the stairs is the coveted open air pool. 3 seated loungers line the edge of the pool with tables dotted around to rest snacks and drinks on. Drinks are usual hotel prices and we normally get spicy tortilla chips thrown in.
Last year I paid approx Rs750 for a cocktail (GBP10.00). Staff are more than happy to offer up a selection of international brandies, whiskies, cigarettes and cigars but make sure you call ahead to reserve a table from Thursday to Sunday evenings.
Call the hotel directly on +91 22 56399999.
