Relive the good times as the iconic Hauz Khas SOCIAL reopens its doors
It’s the place where memories were made, businesses were started and the view was always stunning. Now, Delhi’s first SOCIAL is back!
Remember Hauz Khas SOCIAL? The iconic outpost with the most beautiful view, was where Delhi NCR fell in love with SOCIAL. It’s been the backdrop of some of the most epic moments in the lives of modern Delhiites. It’s where couples fell in love, friends caught up over drinks, iconic Bollywood moments were filmed, multi-million dollar businesses were started and where people found a place where they belonged. The stunning outpost was shut down during the pandemic but now, the beloved Hauz Khas SOCIAL reopens its doors. The re-launch bears testimony to the grit of Impresario Handmade Restaurants which has recently completed 20 years in the industry.
Flanked by the Hauz Khas Lake, historic monuments that trace to the 13th century and the lush Deer Park, Hauz Khas Village is a hub for locals and tourists alike. The bustling streets and narrow walkways make the perfect escape from the city’s traffic. An area where fashion, food, bars and art come together in organized chaos, Hauz Khas Village has always been ahead of the curve.
At the nucleus of the area stands Hauz Khas SOCIAL, where people can have a relaxing meal, listen to upcoming artists or party into the night. The outpost also boasts the perfect balance of work and play, featuring a co-working space for creative independents and budding entrepreneurs. In fact, this was where Aman Gupta and Sameer Mehra, the founders of boAt set up shop and gave birth to their trailblazing brand. To pay homage to this Social Works success story, two new dishes, the Boat-e-Kebab and Boat-e-Chaap, have been added to the menu.
The core of Hauz Khas SOCIAL remains unchanged. The menu features classic eats packed with flavour and delightful cocktails with unique twists. It is the go-to spot for lazy lunches, casual catch-ups with friends or unforgettable nights. It continues to be a path-breaking urban hangout where like-minded artists, musicians, designers and independent thinkers can come together to bounce-off ideas, learn, grow and thrive. The minimal intervention and maximum upcycling theme has been maintained in the decor, which is 100% recycled and upcycled furniture juxtaposed with hard industrial elements. Some original art pieces can still be spotted on the unfinished bare walls but the vibe that engulfs the outpost is completely new.
Commenting on the reopening, Riyaaz Amlani, CEO & MD of Impresario Handmade Restaurants says, “SOCIAL’s tryst with Delhi began with Hauz Khas and this reopening holds a special place in all our hearts. Our patrons asked, and we answered! Hauz Khas SOCIAL is back, and we’re ready for our next chapter. Impresario Handmade Restaurants also completes 20 years in the hospitality industry this year, where we have strived to serve our patrons the ‘out-of-the-ordinary’, create new dining formats and forge new experiences coupled with an unmatched F&B offering. Hauz Khas SOCIAL represents all that and a whole lot more and we are thrilled about our next innings with our patrons in Delhi NCR!”
Mayank Bhatt, Business Head – SOCIAL says “We’re so thrilled to be reopening Hauz Khas SOCIAL. It was this outpost that put us on the map in Delhi NCR, and gave our patrons a place to hang, eat, drink, enjoy live music, get their creative juices flowing at the workspace and dance their hearts out. What began as an easy hangout spot, soon transformed into a space where the community came together, be it for Work or Play. We stay true to our values and reopen Hauz Khas SOCIAL as the icon that it once was- complete with a loaded menu of #eats & #drnks that push the envelope, a workspace brimming with creatively charged people, a stage for art, culture, music to seamlessly integrate and a vibe like never before!”
In the lead-up to the launch, customers were asked to share memories of all the crazy nights they had at Hauz Khas SOCIAL. Hundreds of images poured in and these priceless memories have become a part of the #ReliveHauzKhasSOCIAL campaign. Now Delhiites can finally return to their original happy place to rejoice, reminisce and make even more memories.
