N Bar & Grill

An Indo-Euro­pean fu­sion cul­ti­vated in an en­vi­ron­ment of so­phis­ti­ca­tion sheds light on Na­traj Hos­pi­tal­ity's lat­est ven­ture in Chem­bur -- N Bar & Grill. The touch of el­e­gance and a fine din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence -- in the lit­eral sense -- is brought alive by de­sign


The cui­sine catered at the restau­rant is an Indo-Euro­pean fu­sion and thereby de­mands an am­bi­ence that evokes a pol­ished at­mos­phere. Also, the na­ture of the restau­rant sets a req­ui­site for a glam look. Talk­ing about the spa­ces at the restau­rant, Sumessh Menon in­forms, “The 2100 sq. ft space is di­vided into a large fine-din­ing restau­rant with a pri­vate din­ing area, and an in­ter­con­nected lounge bar with a sep­a­rate en­trance.”

The de­sign ap­proach chooses to adopt an artis­tic ap­proach where the in­te­rior am­bi­ence takes shape with sculp­tural forms and art­work. They cre­ate an exclusive def­i­ni­tion of de­sign which is spe­cific to this place. When we say art­work, it is not typ­i­cal In­dian mo­tifs which take im­agery but just a sense of In­dian art com­ple­mented with indige­nous ma­te­ri­als and tech­niques across the in­te­rior which has a dis­tinctly western sen­si­bil­ity and to­gether they revel in the fu­sion aura.

A seam­less blend of two de­sign lan­guages pro­poses an invit­ing space. The en­trance it­self in­tro­duces the de­sign emo­tions to the cus­tomer. In­spired by the Ra­jasthani jaalis, GRC trel­lis de­fines the pri­vacy quo­tient of the restau­rant and sets it apart from neigh­bour­ing businesses. The wooden slats on the glass fa­cade set the de­gree of con­nec­tiv­ity be­tween the in­side and the out­side. Din­ers en­ter­ing the restau­rant get a brief pre­view of the de­sign state­ment that the restau­rant makes on the in­side and the al­ready seated din­ers feel a con­nec­tion with the out­side -- al­though al­ready oc­cu­pied in their pri­vacy. The con­nec­tiv­ity fea­ture of the fa­cade oc­cu­pies an aes­thetic place in the wooden en­try doors as well, as they are in­set with a grid of mag­ni­fy­ing lenses.

As soon as one en­ters the restau­rant, the western ac­cents of the de­sign show­case in a back­lit re­cep­tion ta­ble in front of a par­ti­tion­ing screen, both clad with laser-cut leather. A so­phis­ti­cated vibe emits from the Bres­cia Aurora Ital­ian mar­ble floor­ing in the re­cep­tion which continues into the restau­rant and pri­vate din­ing ar­eas, and cou­pled with brown leather and dark wood tones, cre­ates a for­mal aes­thetic.

Sub­tle hues of gold per­co­late the space amidst a plush en­vi­ron­ment. They add the tinge of an In­dian flavour. Lay­ered waves of ham­mered brass adorn the wall above the fine din­ing sec­tion which is fur­nished with rich leather so­fas. The din­ing ta­ble does the need­ful with laser-cut ve­neer fin­ish. The en­tire restau­rant glo­ri­fies with the self-de­signed lights by Sumeshh him­self.
