n 2005, when Mumbai schools thought it was a good idea to take ninth grade graduates to nightclubs for farewells, our entire class was ferried in a school bus to a bar in Lokhandwala, which would go on to acquire a reputation sleazier than Bangkok.

It was possibly one of the tamest nights “Club Escape” has ever experienced, barring one moment that came during a song played at the late hour of 7.30 pm.
