Mumbai's culinary scene has a delightful newcomer that's taking the traditional mithai experience to a whole new level. Inspired by the captivating Art Deco movie theaters of the city, the newly unveiled Bombay Sweet Shop in Bandra presents a fusion of creativity and Indianness. This enchanting space, designed by Shonan Purie Trehan of LAB, brings together different experience zones where you can indulge in delectable treats or pick up mithai from the retail offering.

Gone are the days of a conventional mithai shop – Bombay Sweet Shop embraces a whimsical, contemporary approach that beautifully merges the past and present. It's a place where you can satiate your cravings with inventive, 100% vegetarian sweets and savories that cater to any occasion. From mid-day snacks to late-night cravings, Bombay Sweet Shop offers an array of original flavor combinations that reimagine traditional Indian sweets.

As you step inside, you'll be greeted by a vibrant display of sweets juxtaposed with navy blue and sunshine yellow interiors. The inviting café-like seating at the center beckons you to relish a selection of contemporary Indian sweets, desserts, chaat, and coffee. And if you prefer to enjoy the outdoors, the seating outside is perfect for savoring cups of coffee or catching up with friends over chaat.

A highlight of the shop is the namkeen (savory) dispenser, reminiscent of classic slot machines. Pull the lever and enjoy a free sample of the diverse namkeen offerings. The space's design draws inspiration from the illustrious history of Art Deco movie theaters in Bombay, creating an atmosphere that's both nostalgic and whimsical.

The warm mustard yellow terrazzo flooring evokes old-school mithai shop vibes, while the candy cane-inspired ducts playfully blend yellow, navy blue, and ivory hues. The integration of soft timber accents and emerald green seating adds a touch of elegance to the colorful scheme. Architect and lighting designer Arjun Rathi's exquisite hand-blown glass lights adorn the space, with a chandelier resembling monochrome bull's-eye candies suspended from the ceiling, adding a captivating layer of interest.

Bombay Sweet Shop is not just a place to pick up mithai – it's an experience that celebrates the love for sweets and brings communities together. With a nod to the spirit of Bandra, this creative fusion of a mithai shop and a dessert bar has truly transformed the traditional concept of a sweet haven.

And for those who lean more towards savory than sweet, the newly introduced menu promises reimagined, whimsical creations that will tantalize your taste buds. The Chole Bhature Mezze is a perfect example, combining familiar flavors with a creative twist.

In the heart of Bandra, Bombay Sweet Shop stands as a testament to innovation, creativity, and the seamless blending of tradition and modernity. Step inside, indulge in the charm, and explore the world of mithai and culinary delights – it's an experience you won't want to leave behind.
