Unique Tonique

So what makes Tonique unique?

Firstly, it’s the largest liquor store in India, sprawled over 15,000 sq. ft. and housing more than 500 brands of wines and spirits.

It is not just a store, it is an experience as quoted by Anith Reddy, its managing director.

In a state that loves it liquor, the store is like a dream come true for the spirit lovers. Open for little over a year now the store has had amazing footfalls. Mostly women was my observation, seconded by the staff.

The sharp sales people do not tag behind you but notice very well what you browse through and very subtly nudge you if you look stuck.

Knowing Anith Reddy who has a knack for doing things that others would not even dare to dream about I was not surprised by the effort and thoughtfulness that has gone into his pet project. But the man is a continuous dreamer and is forever striving to do things bigger and better than anyone else.

Next on cards is a huge wine tasting room with sommeliers from across the world sharing their knowledge.

 “Most women head to the first floor, the selfie spot,” says Anith, pointing to a huge faux bottle of Moet & Chandon inside an ice tub. Though I was totally tired from my journey and washed out from a day of running around I could not resist a click myself.

To those who would crinkle up their noses at the very mention of spirits, I recommend a dekko for you will find some soft drinks, sodas, munchies and a variety of chocolates too.

I spent a good amount of time browsing through because the whole ambience is that of a relaxed luxury shopping destination, I wonder who wouldn’t want to spend time there to lift their spirits.

 

Ferrari Drive & Dinner

On Sunday, December 17, 2017 Mumbai woke up to the thundering revving of 24 Ferrari cars ready to paint the town red (mostly).

A leisure drive that set the heart of Mumbai racing was organised by Ferrari & Navnit Motors, Ferrari’s dealership in Mumbai and Hublot was one of the brand partners.
Hublot Watches is also associated with Ferrari Cars and has special Ferrari Inspired watches.

 

A cheering crowd flagged off the drive from Navnit Motors in Bandra-Kurla Complex, heading to Nariman point NCPA where there was a pit stop, via the Bandra-Worli Sea Link and concluded at the Festival Square in High Street Phoenix in Lower Parel, where an even more enthusiastic crowd was present to welcome the cars. The cars were displayed there for the remainder of the day.

 

These cars were brought from the customers places from different parts of India to Mumbai and the owners themselves droves their cars in the parade on Sunday.

The drive is one part of Ferrari’s celebrations of the 70th anniversary which was kicked off in March in September, in Maranello, Italy.

 

Lot of hearts revved for the Ferraris and people across all generations enjoyed taking selfies and pictures with the beauties.

Later that evening a private dinner was held for the owners and select invitees, where Gautam Singhania relived fond memories of his win in 2015.

 

 

Hublot presented a wall clock to Navnit Motors which will hopefully find a place in the Ferrari showroom at BKC.
