Red Bull Ride: Eastern Promises on an Open Top Bus!

Mukul Deora explains it best, “I understand a  city by finding its underbelly and exploring it. The Eastern side of the  island city remains undiscovered for many, and I thought   it would be  fun to take my friends on a trip along its sprawling,   crumbling  backbone, while stopping at local watering holes along the   way. With a  little music of course! Kudos to Red Bull for helping me do   it.”

How cool is this? Mukul Deora and Akshai Sarin just took Mumbai nightlife to a whole new level! Their one-of-a-kind open top bus ride through Mumbai’s most authentic watering-holes with a soundtrack to boot made for a pretty killer experience. Mukul (love him!) and Akshai (birthday boy!) played host to the evening supported by Red  Bull (yaay Red Bull!) as 30 people drove down the Bombay Port Trust Road stopping at  some of Mumbai’s oldest bars for a unique pub crawl. The awesome bit? Each passenger got a live collage of music played directly into their headphones! Did I mention this all happened in an open top bus?! #Wicked.
Spotted: Former Miss  India Ekta Chowdhry, Ali  Sachedina who incidentally manages Kailash Kher, DJ Tiesto and Linkin  Park (what? really?!), Stuart Da Costa (from the band Something Relevant), London based  artiste and sculptor Anushya Sharma and web-based lifestyle influencers  Mansi Poddar (of Brown Paper Bag) and Sita Wadhwani of (CNNgo.com.) So bummed I missed it but traffic home from Sula Fest was BRUTAL! But next time you better believe I’ll be there live-tweeting, “I’m on a Bus B*tches!”
