Ditching your boy and heading out this Saturday night with your girliesss?? Here are RiVa’s top picks of some fine wine and scrumptious bites to grab in Bandra, cause I know exactly how important it is to sit down and spend some quality time with your girls.

  1. Pali Village Cafe

How about a candlelight date with your girl gang while sipping on some Sangria and enjoying a Charlie Chaplin movie. This is the perfect place to unwind after a long hectic week. Peeling walls, old fans, rusty steel chairs and dimly lit interiors, yet Bollywood loves to sip on their melon Sula Sangrias & eat wafer thin pizza’s to the soundtracks of Vicky Cristina Barcelona.

Drinks – Blush & Berry Sangria, Watermelon Sangria

Food – Watermelon & Feta, Hummus & Kalamata Olives Sandwich, Sweet Potato Fries, Barbeque Chicken Pizza, Spaghetti in Pink Sauce, Artichoke & Mushroom Ravioli & Red Snapper.
