Inspired by the old first-class railway coaches of India, the bar upstairs is designed by Tom Strother of Fabled Studios, and welcomes guests into the restaurant, transporting them to the beating heart of Mumbai. The pewter bar is complemented with green woven jacquard fabric and leather bar stools, creating the perfect place to perch for a pre-dinner cocktail such as a ‘Palace on Wheels’ with Bombay Sapphire, Strega Liqueur and Cardamom Pods, or a ‘Pearl of Bombay’ with Vodka, Passion Chutney, Passion Fruit Juice, and Fresh Lemon Juice.
The Carriage, which houses the pewter bar, features a distinctive terrazzo and Marmoleum floor with a palette of soft green custom designed Formica, offset with mahogany and aluminum strap work details, complemented with pale green leathers chairs. Small booths around the carriage are perfect for groups of four, while a larger sharing table down the center seats parties of up to twelve.
The Dining Room, nestled at the end of the Carriage, reflects the Art Deco presence in Mumbai with vibrant pink clay plaster walls and contrasting bottle green leather and candy pink upholstery, all offset with a distressed oiled timber floor. The room is filled with bespoke furniture and tables, and can accommodate up to thirty-six guests.
The Retiring room, located on the subterranean floor, is the perfect space for guests to retire post-dinner. Enveloped with pale pink plaster walls, brilliant-cut glass screens, deep burgundy leather upholstery and a timber panelled ceiling, the lower ground features deep booths for larger groups and a seated bar encouraging conviviality amongst diners.
