A Bar Called Life is a resto bar located at Juhu, Mumbai.
The bar is a well known party place in this area and it has gained immense popularity in recent times…
It opens in the evening, it’s sober during dinner and it changes into a high energy night club post eleven.
The bar menu is a interesting mix of Indian twisted cocktails along with the usual spirits.
The food menu is a mix of bar nibbles and hearty eats with a dominant Indian influence but they also offer sushies !!
