Advantages The Only Club in Hyderabad, relaxed atmosphere, rural setting with no-congestion on route, and no mosquitos!
Disadvantages a bit far out of the city to get to, no buses, taxi's at night
Stuck where to party this weekend? Fed up with long queues at large commercial city Clubs, (and the extortionate London Club prices!) or maybe you fancy a change from dancing in small back street Clubs, well here’s a Club with a difference…it’s in the middle of nowhere, set in rural surroundings just outside of an army controlled area…near the city of Hyderabadin India. Ok, I realise this is a long way to go Clubbing just for the weekend but you wont be disappointed by the rural charm, location, atmosphere and wonderful hospitality of the local Hyderabadi’s. If you do manage a visit to the southern city of Hyderabad in India this is one Club, well the ‘only’ Club worth checking out!Treasure Island, commonly known as ‘TI’ by the locals is Hyderabad’s first proper Club. It is situated in Gandipet, which is about 16Km drive out of Hyderabad city. For those of you not familiar with Hyderabad, it’s a place immersed with a rich history, heritage and known for its fine cuisine. It is a place that is rapidly modernising and expanding with its up and coming hi-tech developments in the world of IT. With the development it has a growing vibrant city life to cater to the needs of the young professionals, the University and College students and the locals.
I will try and provide you with some background as to why I was so impressed by this one and only Club in Hyderabad. Having spent my teenage years in Hyderabad at a time when there were no Clubs or Hotels with Disco’s in them, this is a much-welcomed place for the young crowd as well as the locals. Prior to opening of such Clubs the only discos in Hyderabad were private ones where the venues were at people’s houses.
This was my first visit to Treasure Island and I was really excited at the thought of visiting Hyderabad’s premier Club. Treasure Island also hosts concerts and we had tickets to see an Abba Revival Concert by the Group ‘Bjorn Again’ who were visiting India in December and the event was being held at Treasure Island. I had no idea where the Club was and was imagining a large commercial set up in the city, with neon lights, strict entry and maybe dress code (as is prevalent in some of the disco’s in Hotels in India). At first getting out of the congestion and dust of the city met us with a pleasant surprise as we progressed driving out of the city. As the traffic eased the air became clearer and the atmosphere more pleasant. The only thing that slowed our journey was that the route from Hyderabad to Gandipet has about 31 speed breakers! Being an army area the route was also dark with not many street lights, so I would advise you carry a torch incase of a break down. Upon reaching Treasure Island our tickets for the Abba Revival concert were checked by security guards and we could then drive along onto a dirt track of what was looking like an open farm. However, after a short bumpy drive we found tarmac parking with a reception house for guests. Without digressing too much about the Abba Revival Concert, which was held outdoors in open grounds, after an enjoyable evening we decided to check out Hyderabad’s night Life at ‘TI’.
