From the look of this week’s calendar, it sure seems like Thursday is the new Friday. Here are our picks of three events that you must check out this week
Tobias Carvalho will take over the bar at One Street Over for a special one-night-only shift
There’s a one-night only cocktail special at One Street Over, chef Kelvin Cheung and Boo Kwang Kim’s gastro-pub in suburban Mumbai. Dubai-based mixologist Tobias Carvalho will take over the bar at OSO to come up with fresh fruit and herb-based cocktails. Carvalho, who works at the Dubai-based Tresind, a buzzed about restaurant in the city, has a range of clever mixes on his list including something called Roly Poly Toby Sour (we think Carvalho is a sporting chap to have named it after himself). The drink is a blend of Jameson, egg white, sweet vermouth, lemon juice, and sugar syrup with Peychaud bitters, all served in a glass coupe.
Where: One Street Over, Ground Floor, 35th Street, Off of Linking Road, Khar (West), Mumbai.
When: November 3, 7 pm onwards
Phone: 022- 26002224
