Very Social

There are few ideas and concepts which you just cannot resist from sharing. One such phenomenon which requires urgent attention for its WOW factor is called Social, situated in the locales of the hip and happening- Hauz Khas Village.  The best thing I felt about of this new outfit is that it blesses you with umpteen jaw-dropping moments. Every time you digest one novel idea, another one pops up soon after!

The raw décor, quirky drinks-deconstructed dishes (still mulling over the fact that my Cosmopolitan Cocktail came with Candy Floss) and a breath-taking view in the backdrop- all this makes for a sensational release.

For people like me who like to work in a rather exciting setting, how about booking their conference room facing the very popular HKV Lake? It’s also the land of the free (lancer) and home of creative souls looking for an exhilarating alternative to a typical work day. Social has it all to make for an ideal work space- a boardroom, wall-space, conference facilities, wall-to-wall uber high-speed WiFi and built-in social interaction.

And as the time comes to switch-off the work channel, the place quickly changes gear to becoming a high energy bar. Drinks after work, never came so easily!

Here is saluting all the minds for kick-starting a trend refreshingly different. Riyaaz Amlani, CEO & MD, Impresario Handmade Restaurants says “Coffee shops and cafes have been projected as your “Third Place”, a place away from home and your work/college. With Social, for the very first time in restaurant history we have introduced the Second Place concept, a place where you can both work and play.”

This is one of those rare places, where I want to talk less and want you to see more as seeing more would eventually want you to experience it all the more.

Hours: 9 am to 1 am

Address: 9A &12, Hauz Khas Village, New Delhi – 110016.

Feel Privileged, The Primo Way!

Well,  today we are going to touch upon something slightly different from  the routine stuff. However, we are not going to go far away from the premise of a good living. It is a concept which has become quite a talk-point with the expat  community in Delhi-NCR.

Lately, the Capital witnessed Hungover Enterprises announcing the launch of the Primo Privilege card.

The card endeavours to bridge the long gap between the expats living in Delhi-NCR and the array of restaurants, luxury products and services available around the city. It is simultaneously a discount card, a database and review software. The members holding the card can log onto Primo Privilege’s website, www.primoprivilege.com, search for their requirements from the wide variety of categories and contact the vendors directly. From 7 course dinners to plugging leaks in the kitchen, Primo has it all.

With Primo in their wallets, the expats are sure to feel at home with improved guidance at all times.

“We are proud to announce the launch of the Primo Privilege card in Delhi. Primo is working towards helping expats and diplomats discover the best of what’s available in Delhi-NCR. As the only privilege program in Delhi to be officially endorsed by bodies such as the High Commission of Canada, the Australian High Commission, Delhi Network, ANZA, AWA, Gurgaon Connection and more, we are in the unique position to really help local businesses expand their user base and achieve a positive branding impact which nobody else can offer,” stated Prashant Kalra, Founder, Primo Privilege and Managing Director, Hungover Enterprises Pvt. Ltd.

Here is a peek into the launch:

Here Comes Svedka!

“I love Sweden. The entire world should be like Sweden. They all like to drink and get naked, and the women are hot. I can’t think of a better nation on the planet”  -Drew Curtis

In Mr. Curtis´words, Sweden seems like the place that defines `Free-Spirited´. Well, for those of us in India who can`t travel to Sweden at the moment can get a sense of that informality and openness with the newly launched vodka- SVEDKA. The unveiling of the chic Sweden Vodka was done with a super bash at FIO hosted by Suhail Mehra, Prateek Jain and Gautam Seth. The vodka that boasts of being distilled 5 times looks pretty like this and comes in different flavours.

For many of us who might not know, it is pronounced as SWA-EKA 😉

Sadly, I could not stay till Tikoo´s performance but Roo Pane completely captivated me. If you too love the melodious chords of guitar being blended with some soulful vocals, then you can listen to him at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dGP-TnIoejk

Apart from all the fun, I also enjoyed checking out the collection displayed at the store. Some of the things that I completely love from the Spring/Summer 14 collection are below.

Celebrating the Jean-Claude Biguine Way!

On Saturday, all roads in Mumbai led to Olive  Bar & Kitchen to be in company of Jean-Claude Biguine, who visited India for the 5th successful anniversary of the premium salon & spa in India.

The evening was enjoyed with much glitz and glam as in attendance were Vidyut Jamwal, Shaina NC, Gul Panag, Mandira Bedi & Raj Kaushal, Salim Sulaiman among others who graced the event with their presence.

The talk-point of the evening definitely was the fact that designers Troy Costa, Nishka Lulla and Drashta Sarvaiya teamed-up with coiffures from Jean-Claude Biguine India for a gala fashion affair.

The evening beautifully displayed the coming together of hair couture and apparel design in the spirit of Parisian style and fashion.

Let us turn to what the man of the moment had to say,” Beauty is always there…it needs to be enhanced with the right services in the right mood by well trained professionals who practice beauty as a passion, not a profession”, said Jean-Claude Biguine.

So, boys and girls- never the let the spirit of beauty die!

Bloggers´Meet @ W

Bloggers´ Meet is always an interesting way to explore new things while getting to meet other bloggers who share similar interests. This time it was women apparels´brand W to host an evening full of fun exclusively for bloggers in the capital. The evening was primarily a toast to the launch of an all new festive collection while also showcasing other fresh designs, colours and silhouettes.

The brand´s USP according to us is the western twist that they render to their ethnic cuts. We simply love their tunic kurtas that can be worn with leggings for an ethnic look or worn just like that for a casual fun look. Other interesting new pieces included cropped pants to skimming trousers, printed personality trousers, circular folkloric skirts to side wrap dresses.

Lets revisit all the fun we had at the meet…
