HOP exudes an electric ambiance, resonating with energetic beats and pulsating music that set the stage for an extraordinary night out with friends and family. Nestled in the hip community of Bandra, HOP offers an inviting haven for those seeking an exhilarating atmosphere. At the helm of HOP’s bar is Shelton Fernandes, the Bartender of the Year UAE 2022, along with his team of accomplished mixologists. The drink selection is a testament to their expertise, drawing inspiration from renowned establishments like Sips, Tayer Elementary, and The Clumsies, among others.
Monish Rohra, a distinguished graduate of Le Cordon Bleu, shared his vision for HOP, saying, “Bandra is yearning for a high-energy neighborhood bar that offers the most incredible seafood and unconventional cocktails, all while being affordable. With the introduction of HOP, brace yourself to be blown away by the delectable cocktails, electrifying atmosphere, and unbeatable menu.”
Pandora, an influential name in Mumbai’s nightlife scene, was celebrated for hosting exceptional electronic and hip-hop artists such as Aggy from Kayan, Hanumankind, Blot, Ankitrixx, Sickflip, Blurry Slur, Tansane, and many more. The venue became a haven for music enthusiasts and revelers alike. HOP’s culinary offerings further enhance the experience, featuring standout dishes like Sous Vide Tandoori Salmon—a fusion of Indian and French flavors that takes taste buds on a remarkable journey. The Chicken Cafreal with Brioche Bun combines a classic Goan dish with buttery French buns, while the Jackfruit Fritters in Rendang Curry cater to those seeking more exotic flavors. For dessert enthusiasts, the Porcupine dessert is an irresistible delight.
