HIP HOP NITE:MARIMBA

Location

Marimba is located opposite Yash Raj Film studio, near Fun Republic in Andheri West. It is a lounge bar cum club with a strong African theme in the interiors’. There are authentic the African masks and paintings on the wall that look like something you’d see adorning a neat African hut in a village in the continent. The Restaurant next door is called Ubuntu, which is an African word for People, someone in here is crazy about Africa.

DJ & Music

The DJ is Sa, a long time friend of mine, but I won’t be doing him any favors in this article, just stating it like it is.
Hip hop nite is on Saturdays and the music is no doubt, new and commercial until about 2 in the morning when it switches to anything else depending on who’s guest DJ in the house. On the night we visited, it was House music after the hip hop session.

Crowd

The crowd is decent, at least not the dreary stag parties common in some ill organized hip hop events. The crowd is really down with the music, at least that’s what it appears to be from the screams that rent the air every time on of their tunes are slapped  on.If heading this way on a Saturday, expect to hear a lot of Akon, Pitbull and some Weezy.

Sound

Well I told you I won’t be favoring DJ Sa, this is the one department that I think they could do with some improvement, though all in all, I’m sure you can forgive them for this. A few disco lights to strengthen the club feel too would be good.

Cost

Reasonable I’d say, with entry at a grand plus cover and a peg at Rs. 200, definitely worth your money. The grand is for stag or couple, but couples can easily get on the guestlist, so there you have it, entrance is not an issue.

Conclusion

It is a place worth checking out if you’re this side of town on Saturday night, but get there before 2 for the best of the hip hop session.
