Mumbai based Sky Rabbit (formerly known as Medusa) defines their sound as electronic/alternative. A formidable quartet of Mumbai’s most gifted youth, Raxit (Vocals/Samples), Rahul (Guitar/Samples), Siddharth (Bass) and Harsh (Drums) have stumbled upon something unique, merging electronica with indie and post-punk styles. Sky Rabbit was one of four bands in India that was selected to be part of Soundpad, a project organised by the British Council, where they recorded two tracks with legendary producer John Leckie (Radiohead, Pink Floyd, The Verve) at Yash Raj Studios in Mumbai. The band has been gigging relentlessly and is also working on their next EP due to release soon.

Peter Cat Recording Co. comes from New Delhi, currently consisting of four members. The sound is heavily inspired by classic Bollywood motifs, American big band, and ballroom waltz. Their first album Sinema was released in early 2010 to wide acclaim, with their second album Wall Of Want delving more into more experimental territory. Amid the wave of critical praise, Radiohead and Nirvana producer Miti Adhikari highlighted them as an act he would love to produce. Their live show straddles the line between performance art and musical salvation, encompassing backdrops of iconic Bollywood film sequences and musical samples, bullhorns, deftly controlled vocal histrionics, and long instrumental passages; building and collapsing around what are often two hour sets.

We visited this place for one of the comedy shows. At first glance from outside, it seems to be an ordinary place but you're left spellbound once you enter it. Circular tables, perfect lighting, comfortable seats add pleasure to the ambiance and you feel that you've arrived at a great place. Once the show started, we ordered their signature Frog Fries (which are not made of frog) which came with three dips. It tasted good. Also the Falafel Wrap was pretty decent. Our only complaint was the price which is over the roof and the food is not worth the hefty price tag.
blue frog on the go!!
most amazing food ever had!!quite expensive but totally worth the food!! pasta with red wine is that one dish people should go there for eating!!the blue frog burger is totally impressive!! worth an experience!!seating arrangement is quite unique with a lively atmosphere!!
Wanna Party? go here!
I'm in love with the Frog!
Its such a pleasant place, the staff is so Friendly, the Bar has superb deals!
The Music is great all the time!
The Food is Deadly! Try out whatever you personally like, Everything here is really tasty especially when served with the BlueFROG signature sauce!
The Ambiance has to be the Best, I prefer the Frog for the Ambiance!
and then Comes the Big factor the Price!
you might find the prices very high, yeah! Thats why it is not at a Dumb place in Dharavi.
You want the prices to be less? especially with the quality of service, the ambiance and the place?
if yes then please try to think over it, if no then keep coming here!
The Bluuuueee Frog
The Blue Frog is a famous pub in Mumbai. If anyone wants to party Mumbai side, everyone suggests blue frog. I fee its a little over hyped. Weekdays are sad. Trance music is played mostly when there is no live band. Unless there's an occasion or a weekend its not that fun. Its expensive too. Ambience is awesome! Seating arrangement is really nice and different.
An institution of Mumbai
Ah, many good times at this place! Their popularity led them to make some decisions which irked many of the loyals, but still the place to be for a music fan. Bluefrog is a pioneer in bringing the biggest international music acts to Mumbai. Lots of places have tried to replicate its formula, and they have succeeded and failed to an extent, but bluefrog is still miles ahead in its niche. Thankfully not yet overrun by the clubbing folk (you know who they are) and has still managed to stay true to its music roots.
You need to be pushed out !!
Went there few days back with friends.. awesome place to be. good food, best drinks. and the best is the service team.No matter which place u hide:P they will find u and serve your order. very courteous staff. Brillant ambeince. service deserves more then 5 stars!!!
the ultimate place to be once atleast
been here few months back,, I absolutely loved d ambience..the music which was on,
love the small cubicles you get, plus the band playing live almost every night, is the thing to be..
When I visited winit tikoo was playing... loved his music.. few songs were amazing...
and about food,, we had French fries with some sauses by side, and jalapeno poppers, and we had alfredo penni, which was good, nice quantity ,
a must try for all music lovers atleast
Fully loaded music
amazing gigs, food, service, ambience, the only concept with punctures as seatings, u feel u r in a ride. have had all the food, everything is good. select wisely. a bit overpriced esp after paying the entry fee and the food and beverages. avoid french fries, have cheeseballs, sandwiches, pasta. the centre puncture table gives a good view. post 9 is the best time to go there
Pretty Damn Good
The ambiance is simply amazing of Blue frog. Love the whole blue feel and the front seat tables as well. Gigs are the time to be at this place. Music is interesting, like the jazz and classical performances here.
Food is pretty usual, nothing extraordinary. But it can be better. Nonetheless if you are a music lover then a pint and a good band night suffices here.
Blue Frog smells like an ugly toad
Blue Frog is a lovely place for some live music. Please fill up your stomach before you come to listen to some awesome musicians live.
This should be called a stage for live shows, instead of putting this place into the Restaurant and eating section on Burrp.
It lacks all qualities of a eating joint.
Overall experience bad:
* No Valet parking
* Bad attitude of staff
* Place over booked, knowing that there is not enough place to sit, tickets were sold.
* Food quality was bad, many ended with food poisoning.
Great for live music!
Hands down my favorite place in Bombay for live music!
Brilliant acoustics would be an understatement! There
isn;t a seat which would not afford you a good listening
I love the pod like seats which give you incredible
surround sound during a live gig and also the comfort of
having a conversation with your group of friends.
All that talk about music makes m think that Blue Frog is
highly underrated when it comes to food! Ofcourse everyone
first thinks of music when they hear Blue Frog. But the
food and drinks here are spectacular. Although priced on a
little higher side, it is a menu worth trying.
The bar here serves some great mocktails and cocktails.
Also the food is really worth the price they charge. I
have had some amazing fish here on several occasions,
specially the rawas with orange butter sauce...heavenly!
I am not a big pork fan but my friends swear by the pork
ribs and state that they are done to perfection at Blue
Frog. The service offlate is not as good as earlier years but still not reached a level that I could complain :)
The tiger prawns are lip-smackingly good too!
A true blue meal
After hearing so much about this place, I'm glad I finally got a chance to go and eat here.
They have recently re-vamped their menu and I managed to go there for lunch. Of all the dishes we tried, I liked the chicken sloppy joe, the cornflake crust fried prawn, the feta cheese stuffed mushroom and the tomato risotto the best.
And you simply cannot miss the desserts. I'm in love with the blackcurrant baked cheesecake! We had something else too, a chocolate dessert but I cannot recollect the name now. If I had to pick a day and place when I ate desserts for breakfast, lunch and dinner... Blue Frog would be my go to place!
Lucky for me, we managed to catch a little bit of a rehearsal performance. I don't know who the artists were but man, the acoustics were brilliant! Would love to attend a gig here some day...
And well, since I didn't have to pay for my food that day I was okay... but this place is kinda expensive, even if the food lives up to the quality expected. But like I said, I wouldn't mind coming back here once in a while...
Confluence of good music and food
There are a very few places which deserve to get full marks. This is one of them. Situated in main Bombay it serves awesome food, outstanding music and out of the world experience. For me, Blue Frog is one of the must visit place. The interiors are impressive, replete with plush sofas and circular tables. The blue and green lights add to the liveliness of the place and the thumping music is just what is needed. Live band performance are common and attract talented artists throughout the world. The food is pretty delicious too but i suppose the visual and audio treat will satisfy you more.
It is a little too expensive especially considering that they can levy an additional entry fee as well. The food although tastes good does not justify the steep price tag. This is the only thing that may irk you.
Blue frog has really helped the cultural scene in Mumbai. They have been successfully able to create a place which will please all your senses and you will definitely come back for more!
Bon Appetit!! :)
Perfect place to spend your weekend
The best part is its next to my office..the happy hours are amazing over here..Food is okay, not that great..The most favorite thing is the decor.Just needs to improve on the food..Over all good place to hangout with your friends :)
Good selection of menu
Went there for lunch yesterday and tried out some of the new dishes on their menu. What they've done is taken the best dishes from their menu in past 5 years and put together the best one. Really liked the feta stuffed fried mushrooms, corn tikki, cornflakes coated prawns, tomato risotto. The one thing that's a must try is their black currant baked cheesecake.
Prices are a bit steep but then that's the price you pay for a great experience.
music food and festivity
amazing gigs, food, service, ambience, the only concept with punctures as seatings, u feel u r in a ride. have had all the food, everything is good. select wisely. a bit overpriced esp after paying the entry fee and the food and beverages. avoid french fries, have cheeseballs, sandwiches, pasta. the centre puncture table gives a good view. post 9 is the best time to go. i olways go for diner there
Blue Frog excellently operates like Foreign places
This is very well operated like the way foreign night clubs and pubs are operated. Everyone allowed but you must pay their entry charges. No discrimination policy for stags or couples. In foreign countries also, anyone is allowed in 99% of places, only thing is you have to pay their entry charges. And in case anyone creates any mischief inside, they got hafty bouncers to throw that person out.
Here also, excellent operation, very friendly bartenders and awesome environment inside. I hope other places also follows Blue Frog type of foreign operations not to discriminate anybody. Any group, single girl or guy can enjoy here as long as you are decent. Cheers!!!
Beware of Bar Staff!!
Although the place was alright, I'd warn you about the rogue bar staff over quoting drink prices and pocketing the change.For some reason the price of the same beer changed 3 times! I went there last night, left at 2am and then had my card charged over 3.5K at around 5am! Evidently the thugs at the bar noted down my card number from earlier in the evening. Scoundrals and cheats! Blue Frog Management should atleast hire honest employees. Very disappointing.
Just when we thought there was little hope for the music scene, Blue Frog came along and promised hope. The place is always buzzing with some fun music and they have a steady flow of local and international talent that shows up here.
While the F&B selection isn't cheap, it has been consistently good. The drinks menu is extensive so if you have the money to spend, there are plenty of ways to spend it here.
Enter before 9 to skip the entry fee and be sure to call ahead and reserve a table, else you might end up standing at the crowded bar or in the aisles.
Brilliant Sunday Brunch
Have been to Blue frog a few times but what I really enjoyed here was the Sunday Brunch...its not very cheap but then you are paying for really exceptional service and some great food.
The spread is really good..the cocktails were really nice and well made and overall ambiance was brilliant. Went in a group of four and all of us had a blast. Am surely going to be doing this again..
I've been to this place once. The band playing that day was Advaita and I've have no words to describe their set. It was nothing short of brilliant. Food is priced on the higher side but the high quality entertainment justifies the price. If you're into music just keep yourself updated with their events. You never know when your favorite artist is coming over. Any idea when Advaita plays next?
best night scene in Mumbai
There I said it! Keep a check on their gigs calender usually come out at the end of the month and follow your fav artists, drinks are quite expensive so is the food. the usual entry charges are Rs.500 but if you enter before 9 pm you can enter forfree well most of the times unless thr's really big artist.
Awesome - One of it's kind
I have been to bluefrog several times. It's my "Go to" place for weekends. Music is awesome, But you need to check the performance schedule before going. I prefer electro house. Crowd is good and mixed age(25 Above & NRI's). Drinks are expensive but If you're die hard fan of music and dance as if you are the only one in the world. It's a right place for you. It has been for me :)
They have no rules for couple entry. Every head pays 500rs entry fee(NO COVER) and sometimes(rarely) it's more depending on the artist.
Have been to blue frog billion times... But i would recommend to go there specially if there is a live concert. The normal DJ nights are okish!
Live Concerts are the main attraction of blue frog, for me. Though i find it a lil steep... But its worth when you listening to some good music.
expensive entertainment but worth a shot !!!!
heard a lot about this place nd it surely is worth visiting once if in mumbai
pros : perfect ambience,good crowd, yummy food, full of energy
cons : will drill deep holes, place hard to find on weekends
.... much depends on gig quality.
it's heavenly when performances are good but the place becomes equally choking during boring performances ours..2 damn good, rest pretty ordinary so do check out the lined up performances before going
PS: to grab space visit before 7:30 and not to forget the happy hours are way till 9 so...some more reason to be happy
The best lounge in Mumbai
If you are new and looking to hear some great live music, look nowhere else and head straight to Blue Frog. I have been there many times and havent been disappointed with any aspect of this wonderful club. The service, food, drinks(variety and mixing) is all top notch. They invite the best performers of the world so there is nothing to complain about the performances. Also they dont fuss about the couple entry rules, music is for everyone( if you willing to pay though ;) ). Anyways its worth every penny !!
blue frog sucks ..
I went to blue frog today.. i must say .. dont go on weekdays.. they sucks... i saw their web site .. it was mentioned there that DJ Ruskin will play DJ from 11.30 to 1pm .. Fuck man.. no DJ came till 1pm and only some band was playing Grammies songs .. wtf... they dont even know how to fulfill the promises...Even some guys from Russia came directly from Kerala to dance in the beets of DJ Ruskin but y the hell they care.. they all just care for fucking money... y the hell they mention DJ in their sites if they already know they don't have the guts to mention that in front of all the audiences that no DJ will be playing today . Dont ever follow their schedule which is on their sites. FUCK YOU DJ RUSKIN
Its a cool and good looking place to have fun. Dont forget to book your tables beforehand (on weekends of course). The food and drinks are a bit on the expensive side but yummy too and the live gigs are pretty entertaining. I liked the cocktails there and would love to go back again soon. Overall ambience is nice and justified for the price.
Good place with riders
After hearing all reviews and tired of going to same places again we tried Blue frog on a friday night. We reached early around 9. The whole design, interior and ambience of the place was very good. We were there till 12 but the place didnt seem to crowded as it was all spaced out. The crowd was abviously not teeny bopper kind but a more matured one. Early hours have some mellow solo music playing on by various artists, this is a good time to have your food. post 10 pm the music and volume gets going. The drinks are priced on expensive side with a pint of beer costing around 325-350 doesnt not come under affordable category. The variety of food is not very much but some dishes are good like the crispy potatos. The zuchinni was mediocore. On the music front different live acts and events by guest artists is always good. This place seems to be more for the electronic music lovers. A night out for a couple at this place can set you out by 4k at least with couple of beers, starters and main course. Going in a group will set you back by 2k with limited drinking.
All said the place is good for visitng once and if you have the pockets frequent visits are doable.
Given a choice between hard rock and blue frog. Hard rock will still win.
Awesome place for trance
Blue frog is one of the finest places to visit in Mumbai to enjoy a good trance night...beautiful unique ambience, great crowd and affordable drinks also....one of the apt places to chill back after a hard days work in the office!!!!!
One of my favourites and will always recommend this to any newcomer in mumbai!
Terrible food, overpriced drinks.
The only good thing I can say about this place is that it's big and the live music was pretty good.
The food was not 'fine dining' by a long shot. It was quite ordinary and totally lacking in flavour.
Copying a recipe also requires skill which their chef obviously doesn't have.
Fine Dining meets Bang Bang Music
Amazing Place, to start with, but not for those who are weak-pocketed and do not quite like the loud music. The food, alcohol, are a bit pricey, but what a place!!
Foodwise, the non-veg platter is my favourite and was just superb!! The best kind of food, or rather meat is the kind that is not under-cooked or over-cooked, just perfectly done and simply melts in your mouth. What else do you need when you are happy with your glass of wine!!
For those, who want to experience it, the enrty fee is nothing at all. The place oozes of Contemporary Class and is a brilliant piece of Design. The simplest and the most apt definition would be "Fine Dining meets Bang Bang Music".
Been there a couple of times and cant wait for another visit with friends and family alike!
All I can say is you have to try it to get the feel of it. But reassuringly, A Great NightOut!!
Nice when not too crowded
We went here on a hip-hop night, plenty of people but the 500 rs. entry fee kept the place from being too crowded. The bartenders are always smiling and dancing. The music and decor is very good. The DJ on this night was DJ EL (?). He was talking way too much interrupting each song, and since each song was only 20 seconds long, this got annoying very soon. The place is still one of the better clubs in Mumbai.
Majestic, Artistic and Classy Ambiance! Work of a great brain!
Awesome variety of Drinks!
Good International style food!
Hospitality could be better!
Last but not the least, Amazing performance (either the live band, dances, short films, Karaoke).
Assures for a great time!
Not my kind of place
I guess for people who love deafeningly monotonous stale techno and overpriced food, this would be a great experience. Unfortunately, I am not among those people. Visited with a party of eight. At first, they were non-committal about giving us a table. If you are not likely to have a table free, you ought to inform us before collecting the cover. Initially they asked us to camp out on the bar stools near the dance floor. Which was rather inconsiderate. But after much hemming and hawing, they gave us a table.
The drinks were promising. A bit expensive, but at least they don't try to scam you on the mixers. The food, not so much. It's erm... varied, but not really mind blowing. It wasn't bad, but wasn't brilliant either.
And then there was the god-awful techo music. Some hot-shot DJ with a macintosh laptop, but it was just constant unts-unts-unts-unts-unts-unts-unts-unts... for..... hours... I drank myself silly to retain my sanity.
I guess if you are looking to splash the cash on a night out and don't mind the same bloody 4x4 techno beat pounding your skull for an entire evening while you sway about with your drink on the dance floor, this is a good place. But don't visit it for the food or drink. There's other places that serve better tasting stuff.
We ordered for a long island pitcher priced Rs 3000 and the pitcher was half full of ice.We yet ignored ,then we ordered for vodka 30 ml with sprite ,n we tasted the vodka it was nothing but pure water init,we couldnt taste the vodka at all,we know that pubs cheat on people by mixing drinks with water but didnt know that a reputed place like this would do the same.we had a sip and our drink was nothing but water mixed with sprite,we had to argue with them to get vodka and they accepted the fact that our drink didnt have vodka init at all.
I wouldnt recommend this place to anyone as a place which cheats on people doesnt deserve to get any customers at all......
Amazing place for Trance
The night I went U-Recken from Israel played amazing psy-trance there. Probably one of the best experiences I've had listening and dancing to psy-trance in an open space. The people who turned up were also amazing, everyone there was just there to have a nice time, enjoy the music and sway their bodies to the tunes - just like a typical trance family :D
Drinks are EXPENSIVE so do keep that in mind if you like me prefer to be in a state of intoxication while moving to trance in open air.
A chilled out night at the frog
Bars all over Bombay seem to over price the alcohol and the ambience is nothing to baost about. Not the Frog though. They have some of the best music in the city and definitely the best lighting and art work. But here's the catch! I got my self a pint of fosters and to my relief it wasn't over priced at all. The beer is as smooth as the feel of the place and makes you feel good. Im glad clubs over Bombay have started serving fosters! A club that must not be missed and a beer like fosters must be sipped!
The Best Live Gigs Happen Here! :)
I have been to this atleast five times! . the best gigs happen here! I have attended the Infected Mushroom, Skazi and few other gigs! I also watched the World Cup Final here! The service is amazing! A lot of Celebrities turn up here! Food a bit costly but according to the standards set by it! Bartenders are great :)
Excellent Music - (Bt check ur Bill Wisely)
Been here wid ma buddies, well lemme tell u dis is one of the best music place i've ever been, dey hav International Djs playing almost every weekend.Ambiance is simply amazing, especially the seating arrangement(its 1 of its kind). Didnt had food here, drinks r bit over priced bt its 5in cos its goes with the status dis place have. Its a nice place if you are a lover of Trance and House Music. Well everything was nice about this place till the time we came to our billing session, we noticed that the bar tender charged us for the drinks that we never had, bt den after pointing out the mistake he cleared off the issue asap, so there was nothing 2 worry abt, hope they dont do this purposely.Staff is good, they dont ignore you till the time ders no rush on the Bar counter. So ill recommend you all to visit dis place, bt while paying your Bill pls check it atleast twice.
A little bit for everyone
TBF is a place which has something for everyone, had an amazing evening their with DJ Domination rocking the house, the place was packed but still got sufficient attention at the bar which is a rare experience, the music was good though after a while there was no place to move, food was good and the staff was courteous and helpful especially Vinod.
chill out d live band in kewl ambience
ambiance... DAT d first thing which attracts me 2 blue frog.............live band is good...u can listen versatile performer over there....but in food...u r helpless with limited option.....drinks OK........every elegant thing digs hole in Ur pocket.. DAT it is.......
King of Good times
Had to been to blue frog for about 5-6 times now. Most of the times for the sunday brunch. The food is just awesome...service is good. plus the salad bar is amazing too with a lot of varieties and stuff. Drinks served are my favorites. I would mind going there a thousand times and still would not get bored. Mainly because of the live music.
Blue Frog is a very unique place of its kind in Mumbai, in India & in the world. The architecture is breath taking. While the food is not their primary focus, they succeed to deliver a very good job. The service is quick & sharp. These guys have really stepchanged the music scene and as well the F&B scene in Mumbai... outstanding. Everytime that I have foreigner friends that come visiting me in Mumbai, I always bring them in Blue Frog. The result is always the same: a blast!
overhyped and overpriced!
Ok...so some of my college gang who have just moved to Mumbai wanted to go see ' the happening places' I zeroed in on Blue Frog but trust me it was a disapointment!
first of all my frnds were already inside b4 10 pm- and wen I wanted to go in I was asked to pay an entry fee of 500bucks...this inspite of me telling him dat we were a big gang of abt 12 ppl- after 10 mins of haggling I gave 200 bucks and decided to go in- it was already cold and my heels were killing me! the whole place seemed so psyhedelic- music was way too loud ( no live music d night I went which was sad)the drinks were ridiculously overpriced- I mean 580 bucks for a glass of Vodka n orange juice? the only saving grace was that the starters were good, and bitings were good. coudlnt dance much either since this is not a get up and dance club kinds place...but overall I doubt I would go back....
Talk about rocking! This place is unlike any other that I have seen (trust me I have seen quite a bit!!!). The music is liberating (in a manner of speaking), the food is not too bad, the booze options are pretty good (insane pricing!) and the Crowd - holy smokes...the crowd here Rocks.
My only (few) concerns with this place:
a. The approach to this place, although just a few mtrs frm the main road, makes you feel as if you are entering a restricted 'red light' area with seawage water flowing around it!
b. Seems like they have an unwritten rule of not entertaining a certain kind of crowd! I get being exclusive, but just feel this is bit over the top!
c. The booze is waaayyyy to expensive! I would rather drink outside and go here to enjoy the crowd
d. Entry gets restricted after 11pm...no logical reason given for that though!
Inspite of the above concerns, I highly recommend this place for its:
Booze Selection: 8/10 (Booze Pricing: 2/10)
blue frog is one fun frog
visited this much talked about disc, and everthing mentioned about it was absolutely true
food was good, try buffalo burger,its fillin and yummy. expensive but what the hell ;)
...ambience great,servers sweet ,
we had fun, good music,place to shake ur leg and relax,we were lucky enough to be in there when indian ocean guys were performing,so it was a feast for the eyes,ears,taste buds and mostly ur soul.....ooooo deep one . cheers!!!!!
One of the very few places I would rate 5 out of 5.
Excellent Food, Service and the Live Music is just a Bonus.
Would love to go there again and again.
Menu is compact and apt to help you decide, rather than get confused what to order and what not.
Ambience is Excellent.
The tables are very sensibly planned so that everybody can have a look at the stage while having food.
Service is fast and efficient and the Staff, very courteous.
Food is amazing.
Sound is just something I don't need to say about.
Overall a great place to be.
Just one thing you have to get confirmed from the venue is the Band/Genre Playing that night. It's very important if you are a picky Listener.
Have a good time!
Blue frog is awesome! I've gone here many times... Ambience is good ... :) Live performances always seem to fill me up with energy ... i feel obliged to write about it.. they keep updating about upcoming artists and the underground scene which makes it just perfect for me... so those of you who who are looking to have a good time just make it blue frog and rest is assured... :D
Now about the food... Yeah they have a selective menu which makes it difficult for foodies to like it.. umm anyhow i feel whatever they prepare is scrumptious :D not to forget the crowd is awesome!
For a change worth a try.-3.5/5
This place is a gem but in a weird way.
its a haven for music lovers who love it 'live'..
i was conned into going to this place,im not a big fan of fusion electronica etc. therefore the big bias.
excellent ambiance. awesome food. we tried one of those platters and we were well served. the whole place is charged up with the music n crowd is absolutely swaying n going pretty crazy. exotic dancers,classical singers,international musicians..quite a sight...but maybe its a place for people who have truly cultivated a taste for that genre. im not one of them.maybe the music on sat night -the tempo could have become little more fast,then even a person like me would have swayed with alcohol and the crowd.entry fee-rs 500. 8 beers,1 raspberry vodka and 1 platter set us back by Rs4900/-
price-quite steep. i might give it a miss for HRC.
Aurangzeb vs Frog
A place that had been hearing a lot about from friends; but was always avoiding thanks to not being really a music lover, so to say.
Finally Dharmesh a permanent forced me to land up one day a couple of months ago.
Landed up, paid the cover charge and went in, to be hit by a blast of air conditioning and music.
Had a couple of beers, an old fashioned & some french fries & left by 9 pm.
The next time around went when some football match was playing, tried it again.
Skipped the beer, since had like the old fashioned earlier, went straight for it accompanied by some mini burgers and assorted platter of veggie stuff.
Tried their Mojito also, which was good and so now can really conclude:
They make some of the best cocktails in town, finger food is good, whilst may not really be a place to try out for dinner; music & sound is good.
Will definitely recommend and visit again for an old fashioned:)
Good place for partying in group
Before going to blue frog for dinner n drink on weekend, book your table in advance. Been there last saturday..Some Dj Sophie Sugar was playing music.. overall good experience..ambience was great..couples crowd was good but stag was not good at all.. they were allowing everybody by charging 500/- as entry fee...difficult to find this place though it was 100-200m far from phoenix mall..
Difficult to find for first timers - just next to the ICICI Bank ATM, there is a small alley which leads to The Blue Frog, The Studio and The Grey Goose Club.
Many people consider this to be a Night Club - which sometimes it feels like. But the owners want it to be considered more as a place where you can have some food and listen to some good music.
Table Service is excellent (my experience puts it ahead of Taj Mahal Palace and Towers and Hyatt Regency).
Food is excellent - quality, quantity and price wise (if you choose the proper marinades wherever applicable). Dont expect to see the traditional Tandoori Chicken and Dal Makhni stuffs in the Menu - they dont have those, but if you are hell bent, they can always prepare those dishes for you. If you are not very familiar with Western / Mediterranean foods, trust the chef - my personal favorite is Tiger Prawns with Garlic and Basil (they get you 5 Tiger Prawns in a plate for around Rs800/-).
They have a wide variety of cocktails available on the Menu. But you can always ask for something thats not on the card - the waiters try their best to make sure you get what you want. Sometimes they make the cocktails a bit bitter, but if you tell it to the waiters, they are polite enough to change it/adjust as per your taste (they dont charge you for that). Indian Summer, Mojitos and Malibu are good fits for my taste, apart from Captain Morgan and beers. Whatever soft drinks you take for mixing with alcohol gets charged separately @ Rs150/- per glass.
The Grey Goose Club is exclusively for Grey Goose (vodka) cocktails - if you are not an avid fan of GG, you can always avoid that place.
Ambiance is really cool with the round pods and changing lights with the music - might seem costly for some people (Rs500/- per head) to occupy a table after 10:30PM but its a real nice way to avoid the crowd on the dance floor.
Live music is always there and they bring in people from across the globe to perform for the audience.
Apart from a floor manager, there is also a Customer Relationship Manager who comes and talks to people now and then to figure out if they are enjoying or not. On a whole, its a great place to hang out with friends, if you have enough amount of Vitamin "M" to spend.
They have a bar in the open area as well (near the entrance) where there are a few cozy sofa sets and bar stools/tables if you want to hang out away from the crowd inside. People use this area as a Smoking Zone as well.
Heard a lot about their Sunday Brunch - will check that out some time and put down my reviews for you to read.
I was there last friday for the Dirty Vegas concert...This place has a positively brilliant atmosphere. The blue lighting added to the beautiful ambiance of the place. The music was awesome as always.
The food is nice with exceptional service. The choice available at the bar and the food menu is good enough for such a place. Lots of variety.
You gotta understand that this is not a full fledged restaurant and so dont expect world cuisine from every corner of the world.
This is first a club and then everything else.
The food and drinks are a bit expensive, but then thats what you would expect at an upmarket place like the Blue Frog...
I would go there again and again...
I would've like to give BF a 4.5 but burrp doesnt have that option.
Anyway I went to blue frog during happy hours, so I was happy. The menu is good for vegetarians not as much for vegans. But they were nice enough to omit the salmon out of a salad that I wanted. Full marks for that. Serving sizes are decent. It is a pricey place but at the end of it I didn't mind the prices. The decor is nice in a weird way.
Half mark was cut because in spite of reaching at 7.30pm they had reserved over 70% of the tables for people coming in at 9pm! And at 9.30 half of the reserved tables were still unoccupied.
Great Music and Ambience
The best place to be in for its music and ambience. I love this place because they have a variety of bands from all across the globe performing here. Many international bands come to perform other than the local ones. The place is packed and crowded on special event nights too. I love the music and the dance floor. Huge dance floor and great ambience. The staff is really sweet and there is great service. Generally I go there for the drinks and music. It feels good to be in a place like Blue Frog! Its awesome!
This place has live bands and they serve good food and they serve good drinks, and their service is excellent. Man can't they do anything wrong. It is an experience. Please check their gigs so you can actually be there for a nice one. Had a buffalo burger, not a big fan of buffalo but was alright. Good drinks, the service was excellent. It got a little loud during the gig but hell it is a live act. The only negative is they have an entry for the gigs, not too pricey but still...
Excellent Food - but not for foodies
I guess you understand what the title says. The place is more of a music place, where you come to listen to music and appreciate (you need to learn how to do that) whatever music is being played on stage. Well my experience is a little unique. I had been there on a dry day. Minimal crowd and some Classical fusion band playing. I guess the chit chatting we are used to during our restaurant meals turned out a little annoying for the "knowledgebale" music lovers at the place. Well I think I'll end the sarcasm here and move to my fortay that is the food.
I just loved the food - I'd love to give this place 10 stars for the food. Also, 10 stars for the ambiance (just make the acoustics better so that people can chat during the live performance and not turn a nuisance - i guess it's asking for too much). Yes, the place is expensive. Being a dry day there was no cover charge and we paid for our food. It turned out to be around 800 per head (reasonable compared to other days) for one main course and a mocktail. The Tuna steak, the tenderloin were both cooked as requested. The marinades were extremely well recommended. The spaghetti was cheesy and just melted in the mouth.
Now the mocktails - Strictly OK. Nothing exceptional. I tasted two of them and neither appeased the palate, nor were refreshing in any sense. I guess a re-work on the mocktail menu could help. I guess, I would have got something better on another day.
The ambiance is just amazing. Great use of space and colour. Would love to go there on some other day when there is a littel louder music playing and chit chatting would not really disturb the "music lovers" trying not to miss out on a single note.
The service is really friendly and we had a great expereince with the food. The crowd again is something which will vary depending on the band playing. So advice you to chose your day and visit accordingly. Keep listening to music and enjoying it your prime motive. Then keep drinks as the accompaniment. Food though really good seems to be way behind on the priority of visitors to this place.
Best Live Music Place in Mumbai
My first impression upon walking into the space-age looking Blue Frog was, "wow!". It's tucked away in an old disused mills compound in central Mumbai, and the exterior belies the striking interior.
Inside, a full length stage runs along one side of this old converted warehouse, and on the opposite side is a full length bar and open kitchen. In between is the dance floor, and the venue's highlight -- the round booths with tables called "pods". The area surrounding the pods is back-lit and changes color with the music, and the venues's walls are clad with acoustic absorbers to provide maximum sound quality.
The really appealing thing about Blue Frog is that it's so adaptable. The venue doesn't restrict itself to any particular genre of music. Instead, some nights it transforms itself into a club with live DJs, while other nights it take on a more traditional and laid back vibe with live bands and solo performances.
Part of the reason why Blue Frog has proved to be such a successful concept is that it's been created by musicians for musicians. Its eight partners are very dedicated to the industry, and the Blue Frog project encompasses run sound recording labs, a music production house, record label & artist management services.
There is, however, one big drawback to this very popular place. On a busy night, the crowds make it very time consuming and challenging to get to the bar and get a drink. The winding walkways between the pods get packed, and the bar area also becomes extremely congested. The reason for this is that the area in front of the bar just isn't big enough to accommodate all the people trying to get served, the people milling around, and the people trying to get from one side of the venue to the other. Some consolation is that there's a small bar at the rear of the dance floor, but it only serves a limited selection of alcohol.
The little blue frog ...
... sat by the edge of the pond and sang:
The Sun God hides his treasure deep.
By the pond, inside the large pods.
He hides the secret food of the Gods.
This is how the Aztec legend of chocolate ends, but it's also where the story of Mumbai's Blue Frog club can begin.
Now, there's no pond, but there is so much secret "food" fit for the gods in every pod in Lower Parel. The food, the cocktails, the music, the atmosphere, the talented staff and faultless service, and last but not least, the phenomenal surroundings. What god would not be impressed, I wonder?
Blue Frog is the kind of place that if you only had one day in Mumbai, or even one day left to live, you should make sure you see it, taste it, drink it, hear it, enjoy it and buy the T-shirt (which you can). Quite simply, I've never been anywhere quite like it.
Most "pods" (or should they be called lily pads?) were empty by the time we arrived, but come 10pm and the place started to fill up. The seating is designed in such a way that it's perfect for private dining, but also offers uninterrupted views of the sound stage too.
They also have some funky fluid lighting surrounding the dining pods which morphs into different colours as the night goes on. Mind you, I could have been hallucinating all this due to the potent cocktails we consumed! This was largely helped by us timing our arrival perfectly for the tail-end of happy hour: 2 for 1 on almost all concoctions :o)
The food was imaginative and well-presented, and the menus (regular plus a specials) were deep and broad enough to satisfy everyone. Our waiter was only too pleased to help out with a recommendation or two when we were spoilt for choice and couldn't decide for ourselves.
Zero complaints with the lamb kebabs, Indonesian chicken and spring rolls we started with. And the infamous Blue Frog burgers were just too tempting to pass up for main course. The burger patty was rivaling the same thickness as my mattress! And all of this followed by a medley of mini chocolate puddings. To share, I hasten to add.
The music was provided by Jalebee Cartel from Delhi. They are a surprise find and you should seek them out if electronica is your genre as they are going to be BIG very soon.
Blue Frog is far more than a trendy bar/club. According to their Web site they have geared themselves up to be: a revolutionary integrated music project in Mumbai consisting of the country's premiere live music performance club, four state-of-the-art music recording studios, a music production house comprising top-notch composers, musicians and producers, and an independent record label and artist management service.
So there you go. What more can I say? Hop to it people and come on over to the hottest venue in town.
my first wild night at the frog
whoever the owner ......
this place is nothing short of an illusion......
what you have made this place is unimaginable
i think u've put south mumbai where its supposed to be....
on the top
the best part ..... leave the bartender to make his favourite drink ........ and im sure u wont know when u hit the floor... with his supremo skills of customisation..... i loved the way he dramatises the process of building a drink....
I couldn't sit as the place was packed....
I landed up standing in fromt of the women's washroom from where the DJ was shining in BLUE......
DJ Ankytrixx certainly knows his turn table ....... controlling all rising emotions in the mind with his music.....
He certainly knows how to spin the web of enchantment......
I loved his music
I think he is the only DJ who can burn a hole in the dance floor ..... see him rockin to his music....... i dont see any DJ's do that.....
u need to mark MEN and WOMEN at the wash room.
We had a top notch socialite entering the female washroom and found himself lost in embarassment .....
I loved your place Mr.Blue Frog..... I'm gonna come soon....
I saw a girl dancing dressed in orange...........
Well....dancing all alone....... I guess everyone feels home when they are around.....
Expensive, but worth it...
Been here only once, but i just loved it !! They've gotten everything so right, and deserve the loads of dough they must be making with those prices.
I haven't eaten here, but the drinks menu, the bar and seating layout & ambience, and most importantly the music acts they bring in are all 5-star all the way!!
Music music music
They hype around The Blue Frog I must admit goes a little beyond when Hard Rock opened in Mumbai. Its the talk of everything and everyone chic. Social spotting here has become as integral as it has been to places like the Taj, Tiffin or even Olive. The who's who really. Goes without saying, that as an ad person I had to try it, and I did.
Its a stunning space, spatially impressive, everything built around the enhancement of the sound. It works and works beautifully. A long bar ends with a live kitchen at one end, which honestly churns out some very mediocre fare. The cocktails are great, but be prepared to get only certain brands from their presenting sponsors, so if you happen to be a Ciroc drinker, Grey Gosse is what you'll have to contend with.
I can't say that I didnt have a good time the night I went, the energy was high, the crowd was great. On the flip side, the prices are steeeep and what you get for it, very average. I'm hoping it would settle in once the hype does, and even for aamchi mumbai standards the prices would get toned down. More post my next visit.

Went this Saturday with few friends. Paid Rs 700 entry fee, hoping to catch some live music. What they had was a band playing music to a movie!!!. First it was not clear that is what they meant by live music and second you don't charge Rs 700 entry to watch a movie. Ambiance is nice and bar tenders very friendly.
Dummy's Guide to a Perfect Sunday Brunch
Sunday Brunch at Blue Frog comes with a price tag (Rs 2200 a pop) but I thought it would be really beneficial to provide some tips to all my fellow gastronomers on how to have blast without feeling the pinch.
1. Start preparing for your Brunch a week in advance.
Cancel all your not-so-important dinners / movie plans for week. This way you will really feel that you have earned your reason to splurge on a Sunday
2. Turn Non-Vegetarian
Vegetarian folks, you will cry and crib your hearts out just looking at what's available for you. Not saying that you don't have enough options but boss this brunch is meat-eaters passport to heaven. And of course, value for your buck.
3. Weight watchers can walk the extra mile
You will be guilty as hell after this, so again, apart from all the points included in #1 get ready for the extra mile before and after the brunch
4. Have a really sad saturday night
Have daal chawal on the night, watch a movie at home (brand new pirated one) and sleep late
5. Stay hungry, be smart
Keep that stomach running with rats- those rats are going to have a ball so let them wait some more. Just reach by 11:30
6. Get a group of friends to join you.
Blue frog has some pretty neat board games (Tabboo et all) that you guys can play through the afternoon.
7. Get a reservation
After this review I am sure you will need one ;-) but honestly it was packed and we didn't have reservation and were almost sent back.
So that's the recipe for the perfect Sunday Brunch at Blue Frog. Take my advice and you will proudly pay your bill (and give out a generous tip) coz the service is outstanding at BF.
Now a little about the brunch itself- They have a pretty large cold buffet spread, breads to go with the the most exotic cheese. Waffles, Pancakes, Eggs of your choice. Choice of Grills, Fish, Tiger Prawns, Fish Chicken to go with your drinks. A choice of 5 main course items. 6-7 Dessert choices. Apart from the cold buffet and desserts everything is served at your table. There was an awesome band playing so the ambience couldn't be better!
So no matter how pretentious people seem out there - they are doing their vasooli so you don't need to play Mr. Saint. Just make the best of it.
Come on burrpers! its Monday - so get started. Blue frog is waiting for ya!
The Blue Frog does deserve the hype it is getting. I believe any business that goes out on a limb and tries to create a market and then dedicates itself to it is doing a good thing. Having that said, it is the job of us patrons to help such businesses stick around by constantly poking holes in their strategy. Here are my holes...
Went on a Saturday night with two lovely women - my wife and my sister-in-law. We were seated in one of the designer "pods" as they are called. While the pods definitely look cool, unfortunately they were not the most comfortable seats in the world. All in all, the ambiance here is the key draw - sexy layout, laser lighting, massive video screens throughout, and a lengthy proper bar are all pluses. The crowd is a blend of the well-to-do working professionals, hip entrepreneurs, out of towners, firangs and plenty of cougars.
We began our night by ordering a round of cocktails and a few appetizers. The Wasabi Bloody Mary my wife enjoyed barely had any wasabi in it (so we ordered more on the side); my Tom Collins tasted like a nimbu paani; and the three of us had the same gripe with all of our drinks - we could hardly make out any alcohol at all! I've heard similar gripes from other patrons, leading me to believe that this may be purposefully done, obviously to increase the margin per drink. My advice: until this is rectified, stick to stuff you know the alcohol content of - wine and beer!
The music that night was a New Zealand based artist named Woody - popular for mixing his DJ skills (mainly progressive house beats off a Mac-based DJ setup) with his flute and saxophone playing. Generally, we all thought that his instruments were being completely drowned by the deep bass in his house beats, so we didn't really pay much attention to the live performance.
The menu, in all honesty, is just uninspired. A place like The Blue Frog either has to commit itself completely to creating the nouveau continental cuisine it is currently attempting; or give its patrons a signal that the focus is the music and the ambiance and that the food is more or less secondary. Unfortunately, the menu leaves you in a bit of a culinary purgatory - neither here nor there. The winner was the wife's Risotto with a half roasted chicken on it. The sis-in-law had a saffron flavored red pepper risotto, which was fairly bland, despite having capers in it. My chicken Caesar salad was average at best, and worst of all, it exposed one of my pet peeves: uncleaned chicken. Any restaurateur serving chicken knows that cleaning out the chewy, unappetizing tendons is of utmost importance. Not the case with my salad.
I won't make any comments on the price, because if you've already decided to go to The Blue Frog, you're probably not one expecting a bargain. That's fair. Just be ready to fork out Rs 500 just to get in - my sense is that is more of a crowd control mechanism, something that seems to work.
All in all, The Blue Frog still seems to be a work in progress. As long as the management is committed to rectifying some of these issues, it will continue to do well as Mumbai's true live music hub. Now is as good a time as any to make these progressive changes - what with Zenzi moving in literally next door and the economy continuing to deteriorate, the one commodity businesses can no longer take for granted is the customer's patience.
