Manish, Tarun, Rakesh and Nitin (MTRN) are four partners who founded SocialHaus with high aspirations, says Zulfiqar Hussain, the brand’s COO. MTRN is also in various ventures, but SocialHaus is their first venture in the hospitality industry and first of its kind in Lucknow.
Opened in April 2017, SocialHaus is spread over 5000 sq ft, where the concept of the bar-lounge is to make the people feel that even a city like Lucknow can offer the ambience of a metropolitan resto-lounge. The food menu is comprised of world cuisine from Italian to Mediterranean to India.
Zulfiqar Hussain, a young and dynamic personality in the hospitality industry, has worked in several countries with the most renowned hotel chains, like The Oberoi, The Taj Jaimahal Palace, The Palm, Jumeirah Dubai, Trident Hilton, Udaipur and many more. He is solely responsible in organising the SocialHaus menu, food, beverages, ambience, the selection of music, the live bands and DJ. The interiors of SocialHaus is inspired by the Junkyard concept, the rough raw look, using lot of wood, corrosion gate, graffiti on walls, iron chairs and antique old lights from the roof. The lounge feel and design is one of a kind in Lucknow. The wood and iron that is used in the interiors is all sourced from Lucknow. MTRN is planning to open another 25 outlets in India and overseas in the coming years.
