EXCLUSIVE-2The good people over at the Four Seasons gave me a chance to take a sneak peek (as you may have noticed on Twitter) at whats in store before they open their doors to the glitterati on Saturday night (for the official launch) and then to the public the following week. All I can say is WOW. I was (almost quiet literally) blown away by the newest addition to Mumbai’s glittering nightlife at the Four Seasons, Mumbai. Aer is a mind-blowing open-air classic-contemporary Bar & Lounge 34 floors above the bustling streets of Worli and my apologies to The Dome (at the Intercontinental Marine Drive) but who’s your daddy?!

For a city like Mumbai where taking a deep breath is often a challenge Aer is exactly what you need (and get).  DJ Shaan will be spinning a mix of lounge and world music most nights, you can order champagne by the glass during champagne hours (even Dom Pérignon if you’re feeling fancy!), snack on a selection of Lebanese tapas (give me some hummus and a glass of bubbly and I’m a happy girl) and admire Mumbai city like you’ve never quite seen her before (not to mention the epic sunset/moon rise). I like the artistic touches too (Go Elsie!), the decor is minimalist but classy, the lighting compliments the panoramic (and totally breath-taking) view of the city and the service has character. Don’t miss the chance to have a chat with the star of my video aka their charming F&B Manager J.J. (I’ll let him tell you what that’s short for but suffice to say he’s the only one at the Four Seasons allowed to have initials on his name tag.) I even tried out the little black lounge chairs (for the single mingler) super comfy and can you believe they keep 30 shawls handy just in case you get the chills? Now that’s what I call service.

All in all, I highly recommend a visit the next time you’re in “town” (and that applies to the suburban Mumbaikars too). Plus gentlemen trust me on this one, if you’re looking to romance the pants of your girl; bring her to Aer, order champagne and thank me later :)
