Cafe Mojo – The eBeer Destination
With the festive season around, there is an air of excitement and celebration across. Mumbai, the city of vibrant night life is bustling with festive sale, offers and deals. But what’s there for the party animals? The revelers this time will have newer destination to party and bring in the New Year.
Pubs and sports bars have been enticing their visitors for a while, but this December a brand new partying hotspot has opened in the busy streets of MIDC.
To experience the excitement of the festive season, I had the privilege to experience a pot pourri of exhilaration. This uber classic café in GoldFinch hotel is a destination in itself for creatures of the dusk. Café Mojo is place which has mastered the art of flawlessly blending the English and continental culture.
A hospitable staff escorted me in the bar area, where I met the business partners of the Pub. After having a chat with them, I learnt that it’s a one-of-its-kind pub which devised a unique concept of “e-beer” in India. It’s said that Café Mojo is India’s first eBeer pub where one can pour his/her own beer and pay by the ML and not by Glass. This system allows you to order food and drinks through a card; you get a card that you need to recharge by any amount you like. The card can be used for all future visits and is refundable. Well! That appeared like a boon in the turbulent times of demonetization where you needn’t worry about the cash.
While I explored the venue, I saw that the interiors were quite similar to ones in the West and best part about this pub is that every table has a beer hose. All you have to do is place the card on the sensor and beer shall be ready to ooze from the hose. There are 3 levels in the cafe – a bar, a lounge and a roof top seating area where sheesha is served.
A wide range of lip-smacking recipes are listed on the menu. But I planned to have the most basic ones. I ordered Nachos and the preparation was just as the way it should be.
The next in my list was Beer Battered Prawns. I must confess that this was best I’ve ever had at any other places. On the concluding bit, I was offered Farm House Veg Pizza whose thin crust was just perfect and tender chicken wings. And these two recipes where flawlessly made.
Not to forget, the Mojito perfectly complemented the platter I had ordered and they have an array of cocktails to fuel-up.
Apart from drinks and gastronomic delights on its menu, great music and exciting events are on its list.
It’s a destination that should be listed on e every party animal’s bucket list.
