Holy Smoke

They say there’s no smoke without fire, and where there is fire, it seems there is also a Texas Style Barbecue. Holy Smoke, Cyber Hub’s newest addition, pays homage to a Texas style Barbecue with their time-burnished, rich tradition of cooking meat slowly over a wood fire. Apparently a Texas Style Barbecue takes its wood very seriously, since each wood lends its unique flavour to the meat it’s cooking. After much consideration, the Holy Smoke team finalised pecan, hickory, maple and apple as their wood of choice. We’re not sure what this means, but attention to detail can only mean a good experience. As for decor and ambience, Holy Smoke stays true to its association with meat and selling it; the entire restaurant has a heavy industrial influence, done up in colours of grey and darker tones, with minimal lighting; you know, the kind that makes us all look good. What takes away from that visual are the meat hooks suspended on the butcher rail, but you probably won’t notice once you have some wine from their selection, displayed on a suspended wine rack. As for food, expect sliders, pork ribs, steaks and BBQ chicken. Also, we hear their shakes are winning.

antiSOCIAL 

We’re sure, super sure, you’ve heard everything that is to be known about Social in Hauz Khas Village. We’re talking about the work space Social. For hipsters, entrepreneurs and creative consultants, here’s some more good news. In case Social got too, well social, they’ve opened a whole new floor over 5500 sq ft of additional space, reserved only for members. The same rules as Social apply, and you still have to apply to be able to work out of here. How it’s different is, it’s more event friendly, with a small built in stage, giant balconies, and an aerial view of the entire lake. It’s perfect for poetry readings, art exhibitions, creative pow wows, gigs, and design showcases. For the extreme social outliers, this space amps up the privacy since you’re not overlooking Social proper, and yet gives you enough company by virtue of hosting multiple entrepreneurs. The vibe is a bit more bare than what you’re used to seeing in Social, also complete with exposed ducts and bare walls. Big interior crush on the chairs on the walls. Don’t try and sit on them. Get more info, here.
