‘The Classroom’ is here to take you on a trip down the memory lane! Buckle up because you are going back to school.
What’s it all about?
Paying an ode to the most magnificent days of our lives, The Classroom is here to make you relive your favourite childhood moments from school. P.S – this is one classroom you would not want to bunk! Spread over three floors and a terrace – this restaurant occupies 12000 square feet area. The Classroom has a very carefully handpicked ambience that will make you nostalgic as soon as you step in. The entry has a huge notice board, the walls are dark olive green, table and benches are kept in a symmetrical order, school bags are hung on the walls, and there is a huge hologram-engraved here are there. Additionally, the bathroom walls are scribbled all over with random musings. Also, the crockery in which food is served is very canteen-like.
What’s the décor like?
The Classroom promises an ultimate throwback. From blackboards to dressing up their staff in school uniforms – they have got everything covered. They have paid great attention to detail when it comes to the décor of the restaurant. Elements like typical school desks and chairs, menu booklet resembling pages from your school notebook, carom board, fuss ball, billiard, and ‘Flames’ written on the wall will swell your heart with joy. Now, the décor sets the tone for the dining experience. So gear up to taste delicious food curated by Chef Kulbeer Singh.
