Mumbai likely to get 50 rooftop joints by December
Mumbai: In a major decision, the BrihanMumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has cleared the decks permitting restaurants, bars and cafes on rooftops of buildings, officials said here on Wednesday.
The development comes after long efforts made by Hotel & Restaurant Association of Western India (HRAWI) and Indian Hotels & Restaurants Association (AHAR) and Yuva Sena President Aditya Thackeray, with the state government and the BMC.
Lauding the decision, HRAWI president Dilip Datwani said it would unlock the huge potential that terraces offer by allowing them to be operated as leisure or recreational spaces.
"The sky-bars and rooftop cafes are an emerging trend around the world, and Mumbai despite being the commercial capital of India, lacked the policy on this. It will be appreciated by Mumbaikars besides domestic and international tourists," said Datwani, whose HRAWI has a membership of over 2,000-star hotels and restaurants.
With a membership of over 8,000 restaurants and bars, AHAR's Adarsh Shetty said the industry has been pursuing this proposal since years and now finally the authorities have given the green signal to it.
"This is a privilege for Mumbai and the city will join the ranks of cities like London, Hong Kong, Bangkok which have beautiful skylines and some of the best rooftop restaurants in the world," he said.
Earlier, there were a few clubs or private parties allowed on rooftops against payment of daily licence fees of around Rs 15,000, which was scrapped permanently two months ago.
Shetty said that by December, at least 50 rooftop joints, especially those in the vicinity of the Arabian Sea, are likely to come up as they would offer dazzling views of the city, besides reduced noise and air pollution from the traffic below and beating space constraints.
As per the BMC policy, permissions would be granted to open-air terraces, in full or part, except on refuge floors of commercial buildings, malls, hotels having eating houses and lodging services, without causing a nuisance to the occupants.
The owners cannot claim the terrace areas as habitable commercial areas approved by the BMC while submitting any redevelopment proposals in future, and no cooking or preparations would be allowed with LPG or open flames.
All other rules shall be applicable as per the Mumbai Police Act and the BMC's Shops & Establishments Act, and the licensees would be liable to take proper safety and security measures on such premises.
You’re young, you’re gorgeous and you want to party like a badass on your holidays.
But where can you go for the very best in hedonistic fun?
Here are four European islands within easy reach where the sun rarely sets on beach-loving party people.
Cheap, cheerful and a lot of fun, this is a great place to party if money’s a bit tight. Come summer, the island of Pag is hot hot hot, but it’s also really beautiful, with fine gravelly beaches and turquoise waters.
Check out the famous Zrcé beach where huge open-air clubs right attract world-class DJs and a friendly, up-for-it crowd. Spring Break happens in early June, where clubs like Kalypso, Noa and Aquarius are overflowing with happy fun-seeking hedonists.
San Antonio and Playa d'en Bossa are the main party spots but there are plenty of places around the island swapping hardcore partying for boho chilling.
With beach parties for daytime raves and some of the most notorious megaclubs for a serious evening sesh, there's plenty to choose from. Legendary French DJ David Guetta comes to Pacha for the summer and the mahoosive al fresco dance-fest Ushuaïa has its opening party on May 27.
Sweden, for paryting? Who knew? One week every July, party kids from all over the country descend on the island of Gotland in the Baltic Sea to the south of the capital for a big party extravaganza called Stockholm Week (Stockholmveckan).
The biggest and best beach club is Kallis in the old medieval town of Visby, the place for beautiful people, stunning beaches and some seriously hedonistic letting down of hair. And come July, it’s all blue skies, millpond seas and lots of sunshine.
The island that stole Ibiza’s crown, Mykonos is beloved of 24-hour party people who can go for it all day long then right into the night and straight though till the next morning. Popular with A-listers, slebs, fashionistas and even ordinary joes like us, this glam Greek island has a reputation for hard partying.
