Teddy Boy– a gastropub inspired from British subculture – is an ode to the classy pubs of 1950s that were extremely popular among the youth of Britain. Teddy boy (or Ted) was the name given to any young man of this subculture that was characterised by their Edwardian dressing sense (normally drape jackets, drainpipe trousers, a brocade waistcoat, and a narrow tie, with their hair neatly done up, usually in the form of a quiff) and a liking for rock-and-roll music.
The interiors, the menu, and the theme of the restaurant are all dedicated to the Teddy boy subculture. Proof of this are the big British flag on the right hand side wall as you enter and vintage pictures of Teddy boys on the menu. The interiors of the Pub have been done up quite stylishly, the plain brick walls creating a laidback atmosphere and big couches providing comfort for seating. Even the lighting, which uses dim tungsten bulbs adds to this relaxed feeling. We also noticed a large wall clock and wall mountings of antlers (not sure if they were real). The exceptionally high ceiling also lends a royal, rich feel.
Priyank Sukhija’s latest venture Tamasha stands tall with interiors plush in the posh lane of Kasturba Gandhi Marg. Brainchild of Priyank Sukhija and co-owned by Jaideep Anand & Gundeep Anand, Tamasha is a notch above all his creations.
All the sections are differently done & uniquely separated, room for sun & more so with the food. The ground floor is rustic & woody with the truck bar in the courtyard with bottles & glasses and colourful sheesha barrels. They looked captivating. The first floor has a similar woody seating and further up is the terrace which is an open bar with a scenic view of the entire Tamasha. You have more reasons to celebrate as it is a place which was dressed in sunshine in the breezy winter morning.
Located behind the popular Select Citywalk in Saket, the relaunched “1 Boulevard” now known as “Boulevard” was responsible for changing the music dynamism of Delhi by introducing Sufi Nights which became a rage. It is the brainchild of Priyank Sukhija & Akshay Anand and proffers drinks & food with both flavour & essence coupled with an exquisite ambience and new age global lounge music.
What does one want in life? Great food, great drinks, great ambience that too at great prices! When we heard about Lord of the Drinks, it did give us an impression that it’s all about drinks but this place proved us wrong. It was also about some absolutely delicious food. Read on to know more!!
We couldn’t resist noticing the woody, stoney, edgy, rough interiors of the place. With bars, grills, red curtains, heavy metals, Iron Man statue, rope lights, the place had the perfect ambience. The restaurant was divided in different sections – 2 long corridors which could seat around 30 to 40 people, Personal Dining Reservation (PDR) for 15 people, main entrance where the DJ console is which can fit 50 people and 2 rooms for 15 to 20 people each. In total there is space for 300 pax spread across the inside dining space and the beautiful terrace. While the inside dining space gave a British theme inspired by Pirates of the Carribbean, the terrace had a nice colourful vibe-red, pink, blue and brown décor with different seating options to make everyone comfortable. Though, what I absolutely loved was the wall art made out of beer bottles which I saw while taking the stairs for the terrace.
I was all excited to visit this place in Connaught Place called Open House. Geared & charged up I went to the restobar which was done in red in the truest sense & blue in the coolest sense. Hip, hit & happening is the word for Priyank Sukhija’s places! It’s amazingly comfortable & vast with a DJ in house and is a warm & lively lit up place. Every corner of the restaurant is so nicely done. I met the F&B Executive Manish Joshi, the Sr. Captain Vikas Singh & the in-charge Rajat who greeted us very warmly & helped us decide our order.
The newly opened Hybrid shines in the richness of metal & chains like the London Dungeon but never I got scared here as the Hybrid walls made a wall of fame & the Batsman wall made me more fond of the place. The interiors are hard core done with metal & bottles everywhere. I met Vaibhav, the co-owner of Hybrid who was really polite & introduced us to the Chef Tajinder.
