Mumbai has a reputation for being the city that never sleeps. Every day, as the sun goes down, and the night sets in, the city wakes up and comes alive.

Here are the top five things to do in Mumbai at night.
If you love cycling or looking for an off-beat activity to explore Mumbai at night, you would surely love going on a midnight cycling tour. Many cycling enthusiasts arrange such tours, especially on the weekends. You can sign up for one such tour and explore the various colonial-era heritage buildings of the city in the soft moonlight as you pedal your way along the Queen’s necklace in Marine drive or around the Bandstand.
Typically, the tours start from south Mumbai and take about a 10-km tour to Bandra and back, but you can always pedal at your own pace and stop by in between to appreciate the architectural marvel.
When you are out and about at night, touring the maximum city, or just relaxing by the beach, you are sure to be hit by hunger pangs. You can satiate your snacking cravings at many of the street food stalls. Be it a delicious pav-bhaji loaded with generous dollops of butter or the lip-smacking kebabs, and mutton rolls, you have endless choices.
If you are exploring the nightlife in Mumbai with your spouse or your soon-to-be life partner, you can share a few ‘sweet’ candid moments together by sharing an ice-cream at Bachelor’s in south Bombay. Well, you may also find a few hidden gems as you take a stroll or ride around the city. Rest assured, no matter what time of the day it is, you will never go hungry. It only shows the true spirit of ‘Aamchi Mumbai.’
