Getting Social in Hauz Khas Village
My friend and Chloé and I always struggle to find a good café in London where we can walk in and get a booth and work. Not catch up on life- but talk and work and brainstorm ideas in a social place where the Internet is working and there is good food and café.
We are not asking for too much are we?
In London, there are cafes like Timber Yard, Old Shoreditch station, Ozone and then there are cool “co-working” places like Forge & co., Trampery, Central Working etc. but rarely do we find a good blend of the two!
Social Hauz Khas Village, New Delhi
Social- Hauz Khas in Delhi happens to be one of them! Can you see my surprise in that statement? A blend of a cafe + cool co-working space in Delhi!
I am in India on an impromptu work trip and a casual dinner with friends brought us to tumble on this little hub. Tucked away right next to Delhi Art Gallery in Hauz Khas Village, and hidden behind an alley of a graffiti filled alley- Social is a restaurant- café- members only co-working space which looks great and is hands down at converting an online social concept into an offline brick and mortar space!
Even the glasses are printed with a hash tag #pani (water in hindi) written on it! The drinks named “Coke cane” is served with crushed sugar lined next to your drink- perfectly paired with a card to draw neat lines and even 2 placebo pills as a bonus! Score!
Rugged yet effortlessly stylish with 100% recycled and upcycled furniture juxtaposed with hard industrial elements, Social makes an anti design statement and looks like it’s straight out of the Meat-Packing District in New York. Social keeps it real. Everything at Social has been found and not bought, making it super environment friendly.
To me – it is the concept which attracts me to this place. Social provides an exciting and conducive environment to the booming creative entrepreneur community of India.
It even has an app! How cool is that!? The app lets you order and review food, check out the restaurant’s playlist (to like and recommend music) and even check in on what the other guests in the space are up to, to allow room for collaboration and interaction between tables.
Launched with panache and style by Impresario- the same team who has success stories like Mocha, Smoke House Deli, Salt Water Grill – this refreshing new place seems promising and addictive and most of all definitive! Can not wait to come back to this place next time I am in Delhi.
Officially launched today! Get yourself social soon!
P.s: Only 200 people allowed at any give time to ensure social quotient is maintained!
Address: 9A &12, Hauz Khas Village, New Delhi – 110016.
