Concierge.com's insider take:

From swanky boozers and Studio 54 clones to working-class dives, it's hard to beat Colaba for variety. Kick off the evening at Leopold, a noisy backpacker haven, whose mix of local color and international rowdiness has made it a veritable landmark for tourists of all types. The 141-year-old café, which hums with activity throughout the day and night, is reminiscent of a waiting room at a grand old railway terminus. Warning: The waiters tend to be as chilly as the beer. Well-heeled partyers congregate at Henry Tham, a plush DJ bar that serves delicious cocktails, and has sassy touches like a vibrating massage chair. For a taste of Mumbai's gay scene, head to Voodoo on a Saturday night (but be forewarned that there will be overfriendly females and paunchy businessmen thrown into the mix). Still up for more? Head to Polly Esther's, where the 1980s are on permanent rotation and the dance floor lights up à la Saturday Night Fever. Although the crowd skews young, Mumbaikers go crazy for retro-cheese. Check your attitude at the door, and you'll have a kitschy-good time.
