Hard Rock Cafe Mumbai: hardly rocking
First visit: fantastic.
Second visit: nice
Third visit: ok...
Fourth visit: bored!
Are there only 15 songs in the hard rock universe?
The service is slow and unsteady. And frankly, not too warm.
A bunch of guys dancing above your head to the tune of 'YMCA'. Even they looked listless.
Except for the company of a very dear friend, this visit was a forgettable experience.
I might be suffering from I-get-bored-easily syndrome. But I definitely think there's something missing.
Of course there are no other places in Mumbai which hold a candle to Hard Rock in terms of space, decor, sound system, sheer ambience and 'internationalness'. But it feels like one of those tourist spots - chalo ek baar dekh liya. Foreign se koi guest aaya, usey dikha diya.
Not a place that owns a part of my soul.
Or, in non-poetic language, a place where I would want to hang out. Over and over and over again.
