Your Pocket Guide to X’Mas & New Year’s Eve in Mumbai!

Christmas Parties 2011

No really, everybody’s got a “cool DJ”, festive decor and most places even do an open bar for your cash upfront. But how big is the dent in your wallet going to be, come 2011? Take a look! (Personally I don’t mind a little celebratory splurging as long as all my  friends are going to be there and we can dance on the table at the end of the  night!)
P.S. I’m still getting info from more clubs around town so check back now and again, party promoters/club owners fell free to drop me a mail on missmalini@gmail.com to add your event, FYI this is not a promotional post just a what’s up initiative :) I figured I’d put it up asap in case you’re still debating your year-end strategy xoxo
Psst! Just discovered an exhaustive list of New Year’s Eve parties with descriptions on burrp.com. Nicely done :)

MissMalini’s Party Tip*

Since New Year’s Eve tends to be a long (and often expensive) affair I suggest you pre-game with a few friends at home before you head out, maybe even pop some champagne and make a toast (and perhaps your resolutions while you’re sober!) It sets the mood and you get a longer evening out of it :)
