Raise the bar


Mumbai: Many argue that Mumbai doesn’t have a buzzing nightlife, what with the midnight deadline. But, life would be extremely boring without a party, as actor Arjun Rampal put it at the launch of two-day event called India Nightlife Convention and Awards set to kick off on July 17.

One of our favourite restaurateurs, Riyaaz Amlani in his capacity as National Restaurant Association of India (NRAI) president, brings the hospitality industry on one platform to support the awards conceptualised by Aman Anand of Kickstart Entertainment. And, there’s never a dull moment in the company of Amlani’s wisecracks.

AD Singh was also in a jovial mood. “So this is how you people look like before sundown?” he told the crowd which included the biggies from the restaurant industry. The advisory board for the awards includes Singh, Riyaaz Amlani, Dilip Joshi, David DeSouza of Goa’s best landmark, Tito’s, Jay Maithani and Kishore DF.

“The idea is to bring the industry’s contribution to the attention of the government, put forward the plight of bar operators, and recognise leadership in the nightlife business, including musicians and artists who bring in the crowd,” said Amlani. The jury of nearly 100 members will be chosen from eight cities. Public polls will be carried out for categories such as Bar of the Year and DJ of the Year. The two-day convention will conduct workshops, and mentorship programmes while the big-ticket award’s nite will be held on the second night.
