A well-known nightclub from Mumbai opens its 50th outlet and finally comes to Hyderabad
Popular for its spirited nightlife, ten-year-old SOCIAL recently threw its doors wide open amidst the high rises of Cyberabad. The breathtaking views of the concrete jungle juxtaposed with the sprawling rock garden is bound to make Mindspace SOCIAL a stomping ground for many, if it has not already.
Spanning across three sections, the 500-plus seater lounge comprises an alfresco area, the main café on the first floor, a hang-out space for large groups that comes with accessible charging points and community tables; and the high-energy top floor with programmatic lights for those interested in grooving to contemporary music.
We took our seats indoors as contemporary music played above us on the speakers. We ordered two cocktails – the Toxic Lilit with Ketel One and a Bloody Mary and we loved the former. The tall drink, which consists of vodka, gin, tequila, rum, apple and cranberry juice, was as fun to drink as it looked.
With the drinks, we were served some of the specials including Marag, a rich and aromatic mutton soup; an ever-so-soft Hyderabadi Mutton Biryani; and some Crispy and Fiery Mushrooms. Famished, we dove in and finished every last morsel. And thanks to the excellent dessert combo of Shahi Tukda and Double Ka Meetha (layered with rabdi on top), we ended our lunch on a high note.
The real cherry on the top, however, is the music. Although daytime has radio tunes playing at a low volume, the evenings, in stark contrast, have the in-house DJ fire things up and transform the venue into the high-energy bar everybody has come to love. Additionally, the weekends have special programming that include various genres such as electronic, techno, dance, and disco music, along with vocal performances from emerging talents from around the globe.
