Ten Second Takeaway

Arjun Sagar Gupta, the man behind The Piano Man café {Vasant Vihar} brings to us a new property that features a jazz bar, a café and a fine dining restaurant- all bringing something different to the table. We’re calling it a breath of fresh air.

Speakeasy to me

Warm wooden floors, rustic exposed brick walls engraved with the names of jazz music’s finest players, and a stage with a piano, the ground and mezzanine floor makes you feel like you’ve stepped into a different era. Modelled after a Prohibition-style jazz bar, there’s a Prohibition-style cocktail menu {all about authenticity}, along with a French Quarter inspired menu. Open to the public from 20th Sep, 2015 it’s the country’s very first jazz bar.

In the details

The stage is well-equipped to host a variety of performers {musicians, comedians-you name it}, the bar is well designed {with faux piano keys lining the front} but the star of the show is the chandelier that hangs over the stage. Constructed­ using 58 trumpets, conceptualised by the owner by the owner himself and designed by Amith Chhabra (of Livin’ Colors Design}, it lends an added touch of glamour to the space.

While it is essentially a non-theatre venue, The Piano Man Jazz Bar boasts a green room for its artists; an exclusive space for them before {and after} their shows. Black tie service, card-only access- the works!

The other levels

The first floor features Cake Away, the well-lit café, which is designed as a space to catch up with old pals over their baked goods or perhaps, catch up on emails {Wi-Fi for all customers}. Higher up is Dirty Apron, the fine dining space offering up European and Pan-Asian cuisine. It also has a rooftop section which will be perfect for winter-time soirees. Both of these are slated to open later in the year so stay tuned!

With a plethora of events to look forward to {during the day and at night}, The Piano Man brings with the promise of good times, great eats and well fashioned cocktails.
