Riyaaz Amlani launches 5th outpost of Social in Bangalore
Located at Indiranagar, the new outlet is Impresario Handmade Restaurants’ 28th outpost of its iconic brand Social in the country
Social is known for creating spaces that epitomize its core values of community and creativity via unique and affordable F&B offerings, community-centric events and gigs, collaborative workspaces, and a culture that fosters serendipitous connections. Riyaaz Amlani, CEO & MD, Impresario Handmade Restaurants mentions, “A home within a home, Indiranagar residents will love their very own Social because no one throws a party like a #SOCIALHouseParty! The vibe is easy yet elegant, so it’s going to become that place where you catch up with old friends and also make new ones.”
Unlike the area’s modern hotspots, this new outpost is housed in a repurposed bungalow and is a chic throwback to the 70s. The design team has stripped down the house to take it back to its origins in true Social style, with minimum intervention and maximum upcycling. Each room embraces what it was always meant to be – be it a bright and plant-filled living room, a comfortably functional study, or a room for entertaining with a beautifully stocked bar.
A classic, understated look with clean lines and minimal ornamentation, Indiranagar Social stands out from the crowd. The style is modelled around the juxtaposition of different, contrasting materials with the usage of rich and luxurious colours like green and orange with a balance of muted flooring and carpets.
“Indiranagar Social is a representation of quintessential bungalow living with gardens all around. The outpost has a casual setting on the lower levels that is welcoming, giving patrons a dining, living, and library space. The second floor is almost like a movie set from different eras as you explore the many rooms. These can be occupied for private parties and exclusive ‘invite only’ events as well. All in all, the outpost combines old-world charm and new-age class with a Social twist!” says Sunitha Kondur, partner, Hundredhands, the firm behind the interiors.
