Kickstart the party season at The Kimono Club in Delhi

Easy on the eyes, exquisite on the palate

Delhi-based The Kimono Club makes you recall cult films like Memoirs of a Geisha (2015) and Wong Kar-wai’s In the Mood for Love (2000). The interiors bring out an unlikely marriage between old-school glamour and a new-age set up complete with swanky disco balls along with hip music.

Perhaps this is the reason why you’ve already seen the place create a buzz on Instagram after its much talked-about debut. But a visit to the night club makes you realise that it really is the hottest spot in town to eat and drink your heart away. On entering the restaurant, which is situated in The Chanakya, you’ll be welcomed by its neon interiors. The trendy interiors are designed by the multi-hyphenate artist Freddy Birdy. What’s more? It has a massive whiskey bar, a modern wine wall and opulent chandeliers.

But, Delhi’s newest party destination isn’t just easy on the eyes. It’s great for the palate too.

So you can indulge in the menu designed by celebrated chef Vikramjit Roy. The Kimono Club also has a live dim sum station, modern Japanese and Chinese delicacies, and a salad bar. Some of the signature dishes include wagarashi prawns almond wasabi, duck carpaccio yuzu soy, lobster and truffle dumpling in addition to selections that are made with caviar, oysters, lobster and duck. Most of the delicacies are steamed, stir-fried or baked which doesn’t make you feel guilty for indulging in the exquisite food (your visit to the gym hasn’t completely gone to waste).

The edgy eatery is launched by restauranteurs Ashish Dev Kapur and Joydeep Singh, who also own popular places like Whisky Samba, The Wine Company, The Wine Rack and Antares. What makes this place perfect for a celebration is how the trendy hotspot has a ‘Call-for-Champagne’ buzzer at every table. With so much to offer, The Kimono Club is certainly the flavour of the season. And, as we near the season of celebrations, we can’t wait to get the party started.
