Colaba Causeway is famous for putting affordable fashionable items for sale. Cute jackets, pretty tops, chic dresses, dainty belts, trendy shoes are a few things you’ll find here!

2. Brands and more!
Every clothing item in Colaba Causeway is one of its kind. If you find something that you like and you think it will fit you, pick it up there and there! Because, if you don’t, chances are, you’ll never find that outfit ever again. There is variety, quality and uniqueness in everything you shop here for. So ladies, keep an eye out for these amazing steals!
If something catches your attention because it resembles something you saw at your favorite store, most likely it has the tag of the same brand! People have been buying H&M stuff here much before the actual store came into existence in Delhi. You get stuff from all your favorite brands here. Chances are there might be some minor defects (not that visible), and that is when you start negotiating the price. ;) And yes the stuff you buy here DOES last quite long!
3. Talk about bargaining!
Everything's a bargain when you’re shopping at Colaba Causeway. If you have the gift of the gab and speak the local language, you’re going to bag some amazing deals here! Something worth 500 bucks can be brought down to 200 bucks.
The hawkers will say Rs 350 for most of the stuff here, but then we all know how to get that to Rs 200 and even Rs 100. There is no better place to hone your negotiation skills. You actually walk away with two or more items in Rs 350.
4. Chillin’ like a villain!
If you need a break from shopping at Colaba, there are a variety of eateries and cafes nearby. You can grab a beer at Leopold and Mondegar Cafe or grab a quick bite at Theobroma. They serve the best cakes, truffles, breakfast and refreshments.
There is NO dearth of stalls for food and refreshment - take a refreshing banta break in between your shopping to savour those momos and ram ladoos. Even for those who are not into street food there is the newly opened mall right next to the market!
5. Everyone goes here!
Colaba is a melting pot of cultures. You find people from different parts of India, foreign lands and college students here. The beauty about this place is that there is something for everyone here. Dainty jewellery, precious crystals, traditional clothing, antique artifacts, cutesy bags - you name it, Colaba has it! (Not mention that they’re extremely affordable.)
From high school/ college students to aunties and even foreigners, this market is everyone’s favourite. Girls start shopping here from their high school days and just don’t stop ever. Budgets increase but still you HAVE to make a round of this market to see what’s new. Who wouldn’t want to buy trendy yet affordable stuff which you can perfectly mix and match with branded items for an awesome ensemble?
