QTube Cafe Bids Farewell

Friday, August 2nd, 2019

As QTube Cafe bids its final adieu, we want to take this opportunity to thank all of you who spent time with us.

Whether you attended an event, hosted one, or just came by to play some board games, you became an integral part of helping us become the happy venue that we have been. We loved each and every minute that you spent with us, and we’re proud to say that we always saw happy faces. Though it saddens us to say goodbye, it also makes our hearts glow that QTube was a place you were happy to spend time at.

Thank you for all the love and support. We hope to see you again soon!

Top QTube Events for the Week (30 July – 5 August)

Thursday, July 26th, 2018

Want to learn a quirky fact as we transition from July to August? Well, did you ever notice how all the months from September to December feel really weird in that their names don’t align with what month of the year they are? What we mean is, ‘sept’ means seven, ‘oct’ is for eight, ‘nov’ is for nine, and ‘dec’ is for ten, and yet they are the ninth, tenth, eleventh, and twelfth months respectively. Well, the story goes that the two Caesars wanted months in the calendar to signify their names (because they wanted to leave their mark on the world), and so they just basically forced themselves into the calendar way back when they were around, right in the middle of the year! So that’s how July (for Julius Caesar) and August (for Augustus Caesar) came to sit right in the middle of the year, pushing all the other months out of alignment! Also pay attention to how those are the only months that are consecutive but still have 31 days each. Really humble guys, weren’t they?

Well, onwards to what we’ve got planned for you this week!

Mumbai Harmonics performs at QTube Cafe

Wednesday, April 26th, 2017

Like all other musical instruments, the harmonica too isn’t easy to master. However, unlike the guitar, which has a reputation for being be a chick magnet, the harmonica gives you no brownie points with the ladies and so, not many lads take to learning this instrument. But, the harmonica is a melodious instrument and, if played properly, can conjure up some very fine and moving tunes (that’s probably why girls fell in love with Sunil in Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa) There are a few men in Mumbai who know this to be true and have pursued learning the harmonica with perseverance and passion. Several of these harmonica enthusiasts have come together to form the group Mumbai Harmonics, a group that meets up frequently to jam and help musicians connect with each other. Recently, they put up a performance at QTube Café. The event saw Harmonica enthusiasts belonging to different age groups and occupations come together to create wonderful music. Several of them put up delightful improv performances that proved their mastery over the instrument. The event was a treat to the ears, and very inspiring for aspiring harmonica players. Here are a few images from the event:

Manoranjan Mania’s Bhayanak Bakra Open Mic at QTube Cafe

Wednesday, April 12th, 2017

Monday is officially the most hated day of the week. In a bid to turn this verdict around, a group of enthusiastic youngsters teamed up to organize ‘Bhayanak Bakra,’ an open mic session for comedians. The evening saw a mix of veterans and first-timers perform. While the more experienced comics belted out one punch line after the next, the newcomers did their best to evoke a few laughs too. And although some of their jokes lacked the punch required, we had to applaud them for their guts and resilience. The best part of the event however, was the motive behind it. While the event did brighten up the days of many in the room, it also sought to spread cheer among those not present by donating the proceeds earned to the Cancer Aid Foundation. Here are a few photos from the evening.

Comedian Sumukhi Suresh’s impression of a hip, happening, know-it-all teenager left the audience in splits.

Comedian Navin Norohna’s hilarious take on pigeons, popcorn and the trials of gay men was witty and on point!

IMG_20170410_175632239 - Copy

Abijit Ganguly discussed Bombay’s population problem and also addressed a topic not many people have the guts to talk about – How soon is it okay to have sex after a funeral? Yes, you heard that right. What ensued was a good ten minutes of valid arguments and non-stop laughter!

IMG_20170410_181448732 - Copy

This young comedian performed a decently funny set and also used the platform to talk about a learning disability – dyslexia.
