This one is another multi-event party, but the best part about it is the rather
affordable price (compare Rs 500 to Rs 2000+, and you'd have to call this one
affordable). And it has the usual razzmatazz, too.
At Mehfil, a Mumbai orchestra will be the highlight of the party, with a dinner to follow. There are the prizes, too. Priced at Rs 500 per couple and Rs 300 for stags, this could be your best bet for the night. But wait for the rest!
For those of you who like to be close to fauna at all times, there is the Baseraa Garden. It's got the same things, but with a lot more energy thrown in. Welcome drinks from Royal stag and Seagram's and many fascinating prizes for lucky winners, make the package complete. Prizes include free stay for couples at various locales all over the country and return tickets to Mumbai, or just joy rides in an aircraft. With the general up-market crowd rubbing shoulders, the Rs 900 (couple) and Rs 500 (single) entry passes (dinner included) does not seem too much of an expense.
And where are the cool and the young getting together? They will be dancing to the tunes of a specially flown in DJ at the Outswinger. Fountains of cocktails, mocktails and exotic drinks, with snacks and plenty of cool prizes and gifts, will make it the haunt of Generation X. Lonely? And have no one to take out to the New Year's bash. You needn't worry! For Rs 350 (adjustable to the bill) per head, you can drink away your blues.
And for those who think that any celebration of this kind is all about satisfying their overactive appetites, there is the Ohri's Cuisine Court, catering to your fine taste and love for food. The variety ranges from lavish Oriental fare to speciality sizzlers from Mexico, and ice-creams.
So check out your budget, sort out your preferences and then decide how you want to party.
