We were recently at Arth, Bollywood’s favourite ingredient forward, experiential restaurant and lounge which launched its second outlet at The Westin, Koregaon Park. The night was abuzz with the elite crowd of Pune and our beloved Bollywood celebrities who are patrons of the brand.
The experience was amélange of three powerful forces- experiential food with deep-rooted history and meaning by national award-winning Chef Amninder Sandhu, fusion cocktails by the celebrated mixologist Jeet Rana and luxurious interiors by the talented Gauri Khan.
Delicious food and exotic cocktails were passed around as everyone grooved to the music and mingled with the celebrities. The lavish décor and stunning ambience added to the party’s charm.
‘Arth’ which translates to “essence” defines the experience that the brand delivers. The main characteristic of the place that truly stands out is the fact that Chef Amninder Sandhu uses our traditional Indian techniques of cooking and ensures that every dish is prepared on wood or charcoal. The food was delectable and the highlight dishes were Kurkuri Arbi, Prawn Smoked, Yogurt Clouds and Chicken Makhmali. A varied range of eclectic cocktails such as Himalayan Madhpey, Arth Julep, and Panchgani Sour were also served.
Arth is an amalgam of a fine dining restaurant, which turns into an upbeat lounge over the course of the night, with diverse music, cozy lighting and a great party atmosphere. Arth is open to the public from the 9th of June onward.
