On Tuesday I went partying with cousins to Poison. It was a pre-wedding celebration for my cousin and her fiance. It was a great bonding time before sister leaves for her new world. I wish them both lots of luck and God bless them.
Poison is one of the posh discotheques in Bandra supposedly run by DJ Aqeel. Big enough to park a mini-plane inside this is one of the most spacious night spots I have been to in our cramped up Mumbai city. The music was pretty ok with Tuesday being a Bollyfunk night special. All in all a good evening but certain aspects of the place disappointed me.
No double entry, which means if you walk in once they don’t let you get out and re-enter the place again. Sounded strange for a social night spot.
They don’t serve plain drinking water. Should it not be mandatory for any eat/drink establishment to serve free potable drinking water.
No photography – and this really matter a lot to me. I respect the fact that they like to protect the identity of their guests from mischievous souls who may take the “wrong shots”, but that results in a loss to capture some lovely moments you spend their with your loved ones.
Maybe it was these standards which made the club a “have to be seen location” for some souls but for me I thought the rules made the place absolutely unfriendly.
