What if a New York-style Tasting Room could be found in Mumbai? Entering that segment and bringing that experiential to the maximum city is Living Liquidz's Mansionz in Lower Parel. Taking you away from your typical drinking evenings, this place is a new concept store where one can wine, dine and have a great time before you decide on which bottle you will be adding to your cart or cellar. The aim behind launching this lifestyle store mansion is to introduce patrons to an abstract idea of experiencing a variety of liquor at an affordable piece before they invest in a bottle. A set tasting menu for wine, whiskey, gin, and more — try an array of liquids — relish it, understand its notes, its taste, its nose, before making a buy on which bottle you plan to take back home. Interesting, India has never had a place like this before. How does it really change your experience and what sets it apart? Ask those who often experiment with their spirit. A concept store like this gives you an opportunity to explore the wide world of alcohol and analyse its motley. For any sophisticated drinker, Mansionz is an apt place. Unlike most lounges or restaurants or concept stores, this place is a blend of various elements under one roof. Located in a bungalow you have American Brasserie, a popular oriental cafe and Dimsum haven, a Speakeasy bar, an expansive Living Liquidz store and a Tasting Room — a complete hub for your senses. For someone like me who enjoys a culinary experience with perfect pairing, this undoubtedly adds to the list of must-visit time and again. The tasting room introduces people to a space where one can develop the knowledge to appreciate spirits and have a deeper understanding of the same. To enjoy your time to the fullest try their many samples and then settle on the one you plan to take home.
