MUMBAI (Reuters) - In case you are in Mumbai to gape at Bollywood stars, here's a list of places where you'll invariably bump into some of them.

OLIVE BAR AND KITCHEN, Bandra

This suburban restaurant serves the likes of Aamir Khan, Abhishek Bachchan and Gauri Khan. This is also where you are most likely to catch Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor having a candlelit dinner or watch Katrina Kaif sample some fish.

Star gazing of the Bollywood kind is best done here on weekdays.

"They need privacy and we give them privacy," says Chef Max Orlati. "They prefer Olive because this is an exclusive place, it is costly and so people of affluence visit here."

BLING, Leela Hotel, Andheri

Membership at this new discotheque won't come cheap but it might be worth it to see Bollywood stars shake a leg on the dance floor.

Ranbir Kapoor, Katrina Kaif and Esha Deol were among the celebrities who waltzed in for the opening of DJ Aqeel's private members club.

CHINA HOUSE, Grand Hyatt, Kalina

This popular lounge is the perfect site for stargazers - Bollywood actors are often spotted here.

"I saw Salman Khan dancing one day," says Tanya Mehta. "Since that day I have been coming here often on weekends and I see so many stars chilling out here."

HAKIM's AALIM HAIR AND TATTOO LOUNGE, Bandra

I walk in for a haircut and find Aalim giving Sanjay Dutt a new hairstyle. But I wasn't allowed to get too close.

Dutt and other actors like Saif Ali Khan, Bobby Deol and Salman Khan are regulars at this celebrity stylist's salon.

ZENZI, Bandra

This up-market lounge is a favourite with many in Bollywood. News of Saif Ali Khan dating Kareena Kapoor first surfaced after the duo were spotted outside Zenzi.

"I come here often and I'm sure I have seen someone or the other regularly," says businessman Sushil Pradhan.
