 THE INTERIOR STORY




An element of craft is visible everywhere in the cafe – whether in furniture, lighting and wall paintings – making each zone feel informal, interesting and comfortable.



The wooden accent is used in the entire space giving it a very rustic yet classy look.


The most significant zone of the project became the bar – shifting the traditional cafe look into a cocktail’ cafe cum bar where visitors could sit around and rejuvenate. The counter tops are scratch and heat resistant with wooden finish. 


The exposed materials like the bricks are used in favor of the aesthetics of the place.  


The use of road tiles with zebra crossing or highway signs painted, enhances the feel of being a biker who is constantly on the roads. 


Open and versatile, the restaurant is split into two looks — the alfresco look is combined with the dark and cozy feel of the inside space to create a balance in the openness. 


This dark wooden look is supported by the creative lighting fixtures used, giving the space it’s warm and intimate feel.


The use of world war I helmet as a lighting pendant, the wheels of a bike as a lighting chandelier, the headlight portion of the bike as a walll sconces, etc, compliments with the bikers theme.
There are huge paintings done by bikers displayed all over, portraying the message of freedom that a biker feels along with metallic boards with inspiring quotations written to intensify customers energy and enthusiasm.  


The entrance with Mr. Sanjay’s Harley Davidson displayed is the perfect depiction of the beginning of the journey of the cafe and after entering their is a wide field of freedom that the cafe brings for the customers to dwell upon.
