After doing wonders in parts of Mumbai, Social has come to Versova with all glitters and greenery. Knowing as the land for creative professionals, artists and watchers-of-the-world-go-by-ers, Versova has so far removed from the rat race.
The new Social is 8th in Mumbai and 16th in country. “Social has gone from strength to strength over the last couple of years,” says Riyaaz Amlani, CEO & MD, Impresario Entertainment & Hospitality Pvt. Ltd. (Parent company of Social). “Versova Social is now the 8th outpost of the brand in Mumbai, and the 16th pan-India. It's caught the fancy of tens of thousands across the country and we've stood by to fan the flames as it begins to spread like wildfire across the country. We're very excited to be moving into Versova, it's like nothing Mumbai has seen before.”
Divided in a sprawling 3 story outlet, Versova outlet complete itself with a garden terrace to kick back and gaze out into the sky and ponder life.
Designed similar to a Victorian Greenhouse, the interiors are as bohemian as the idea of space in Versova. The first floor has a large, airy indoor space with a bar and a cozy private courtyard garden space, which doubles up as the work space area. The second floor has an indoor space and a large courtyard along with an open bar.
The 'greens' have been fanned out, and allowed to run wild - while the other decor elements shape shift as you take a walk through the space. The first floor seats 85, 70 bottoms fit neatly on to the second floor and the ground floor is an eclectic mix of furniture and chairs that seat 20 people.
“True to its design philosophy of minimum intervention and maximum up-cycling, the anti-design theme runs right through Versova Social’s décor,” says Faizan Khatri of Studio Eight TwentyThree who has designed the outlet.
Like any other Social in Mumbai, the Versova Social also has the Social Maal ki Dukaan at the entrace, where you can pick up some really odd odds and ends like the Cutting Chai set, Davaa Daaru shot bottles, Thandi Beer Glass set and a Wooden Breakfast Tray to name a few.
The menu has got more innovative along with few Social favourites. For carnivores, there's the Chicken Kebab Magic, Killer Kebab Plate and Kebabs from Social Chhatt like the Old School Chicken Tikka, Jose’s Jalapeno Chicken Tikka and Mutton Seekh. Signatures from Social Chhatt have also made it to the Versova Social menu like the Mind Blast Mutton and Black Label Butter Chicken - you will have to visit to find out what that tastes like. And for herbivores, there's the Gun Powder Baby Potatoes, Basil & Thyme Paneer Tikka, Chhatt Signatures like Punjabi Chole, Dal Makhani, Toofani Paneer and a host of other oddities that'll make you fall in love with Versova Social.
So if you're ever in Versova, you know where you need to make a pit stop at. Versova Social is open for business and pleasure. We'll be waiting to see you!
