dc.description.abstract The aim of the study was to understand the ways in which young Indian women are negotiating and managing their access to the Mumbai night time economy (M-NTE). Through ethnographic fieldwork, which consisted of participant observation and in-depth interviews of five female middle class young Indians (22-24 years) who participated in Mumbai's alcohol drinking cultures. The data gathered during fieldwork and from the interviews was analysed through a post-structuralist/ social constructionist framework and showed that access to these drinking cultures is linked to larger issues to social mobility with the middle class (es). Furthermore, I argue here that participation in the MNTE is an "impossible space", which can partially be managed through culturally specific strategies. In conclusion, the M-NTE, is not about getting intoxicated, unlike the British night time economy (B-NTE), but is related to learning to identify alcohol with modernity and a global identity. en_GB
