Being a Delhiiete, it was so excited to hear about Social coming up in Pune.
After ruling Delhi, Bengaluru and Mumbai, cafe-cum-bar-cum-workspace, it is finally coming to Pune on March 8, 2018, and here’s everything you should know about it.
And as they say, “Social is a space that blends the best of the office and the café. Combining work and play, it’s an urban hangout designed to take you offline while still keeping you connected. Social is a collaborative workspace, a hub for artists and innovators”.
The meaning of Social has completely changed over time with the introduction of Internet and face to face interaction has turned into only Texts and Emails! To keep the meaning of Social as it was before, Riyaaz Amlani has started this trend. Riyaaz is amongst one of the most recognized restaurateurs in the country today. Also, In 2011, he was deemed as the ‘Best Restaurateur’ in India at the Time Out Food Awards. Riyaaz is the youngest Indian to have won the title.
So, the first ever Social is located in Phoenix Marketcity, Viman Nagar. With a tunnel like entrance and much interesting theme, it beats all others nearby cafes. It depicts city’s journey from Poona to Pune. The bricked walls features postcards and old-school newspapers, a tribute to city’s post office. The Trampoline Work Section, with cushions add an extra edge and quirk to the space.
There is a common space for everyone to work and network with ‘Kadak’ written in background. The stairs made of cement with map of Pune printed over is the best place i would like to sit over. The tables near by are re- arranged to form a dance floor for peeps to enjoy and dance!
My Top Recommendations include Purani Delhi Chaat Walk which was an epic Chaat Platter with Papdi Chaat, Dahi Bhalla and Gol Gappas. Just the Delhi Style!
Another amazing items I had were Jalapeno Cheese Nads, Fully Loaded Nachos, Tandoori Soya Chaap, Tandoori Momos.
In Desserts, I would suggest you to try Chocolate Blood Bath. It is a mix of Chocolate cake, brownie, truffle chocolate ice cream, chocolate mousse and dark chocolate sauce. Yes, so much of chocolate!
In Drinks, I just loved Pink Cream and The Lantern. Pink Cream included Strawberry Syrup with orange, mango and guava juice. Whereas The Lantern was Whiskey + Smoked Orange Marmalade.
Social is where you EAT, WORK and PLAY. Visit today and Enjoy 🙂
