AER. FOUR SEASONS

It's always been fashionable to compare high-end restaurants or lounges to theatre. After all, both have a cast [chef and management team[ and an intricately designed stage [in this case, an open-air lounge on the 34th floor with a fabulous view of the sea, race course and Haji Ali]. The cocktails and snacks are served with high-energy music in the background and the price often exceeds that of a Broadway show... and worth every rupee!!

 

As lounges go, Aer, nestled on the rooftop of Four Seasons, is an impressive lounge that has become a hotspot for members of the fashion industry, industrialists and beyond. Aer's design, with an abundance of mirrors and glass, gives out a chic club vibe though the furniture is minimalist and luminous and... comfortable. That's because the design team includes Bob Bilkey, Oscar Llynas, Nozer Wadia, Ritu Nanda, Elsie Nanji and Annalisa Beliettati!

 

What separates Aer from the rest is the quality of cocktails and snacks. The Prawn Cocktail that arrived at the table on my first evening there — I was a guest at the hotel — was piquant and the thousand island dressing was fresh and chilled. The entrées are well thought-out and flavourful. I thoroughly enjoyed an elegant serving of Crispy Squid with spicy tartar sauce and a platter of Red California Maki. Looking back, though the life expectancy of a chic lounge in South Mumbai is notoriously short, the creative interiors, conscientious service and quality cocktails and snacks at Aer is going to make it an exception to the culinary rule! I, for one, cannot wait to visit again!
