I founded and managed a portal on Mumbai’s lifestyle offerings called WhereCIty for five years. WhereCity was a New Media company prior to CoalWorks. WhereMumbai.com / WhereCity.com was a one stop portal on Mumbai city. The site was a premier source of information on food & dining, bars & clubs, history, getting around, events, lifestyle, creative talent, film, music, art and more. WhereCity was about restaurants, bars & cafes and nightlife in this bustling metropolis as well as a host of information about this city. An added plus was the growing database of articles on Mumbai’s heritage & landmarks, travel and the outdoors, technology, wellness, store launches and reviews, art, film, music and a unique spotlight on creative talent in Mumbai. As one of the pioneers in the lifestyle space, WhereCity was also a platform for contributing writers and photographers to showcase their talent.
The website fulfils an important need for the dining, performing arts and entertainment communities of a city to get a showcase at which new visitors and local residents can learn of new offerings and select their choice of entertainment and food, etc.
There were a multitude of ideas to be implemented but the project had to be taken offline. In this section you will get a flavour of WhereCity and what it was about. Enjoy !
