Upcoming Live Gig Venue at Elphinstone
The music hasn’t begun yet, but we’ve been keeping our ears to the ground. As you read in silence, former music journalist Nikhil Hemrajani is refurbishing an Elphinstone Road studio to serve as a new live music venue in the city, one that our sources described as “Blue Frog for the masses".
Drinks at this two-floor venue (level A is 2,000 square feet and level B is 1,000 square feet) will be cheap and non-fancy, but only because they shouldn’t steal the limelight from the performances. Think Live From the Console, we were told. Along with a live music platform, Nikhil is also considering putting in a jam room, but not before fully considering its viability. You can even expect to see art and photography shows at a later stage. The interior will be grungy, retaining the space’s original industrial feel.
While the venue, slated to open in July, doesn’t have a name yet (no it won’t be a case of this), it’s interesting to know that it operates out of Sitara Studios, a place where Marathi natak troupes once practiced.
Chala chala, love-kar!
Getting there: National Engineering Compound, Kaka Saheb Gadgil Road, opposite Tilak Bhavan, next to Elphinstone railway station, Dadar (W).
