Virat Kohli’s iconic resto-bar One8 Commune has opened its doors in the city of Kolkata.
Located in the heart of the city at Golden Park, Kolkata, the place upholds a thoughtful blend of the old-world charm with the contemporary.
The décor complements the guise of togetherness, while incorporating the ambience of the city’s nostalgic heritage. After its inaugural outlet in Delhi’s Aerocity, One8 Commune is now ready to steal the show of the resto-bar community of Kolkata.
“My connection with Kolkata has always been very joyous and remains integral to me from my under-19 days till today. Calcuttans know how to do justice to the food and Kolkata’s food culture has always been fascinating to me hence we thought One8 Commune could be a fantastic addition to the city's gastronomic preferences with a bit of our distinctive twists,” shared Kohli.
Designed by renowned interior stylist Sumessh Menon, the signature resto-bar spreads over an area of 4,500 sq ft plus and has a seating capacity of 100 covers that includes capsule style pods and a distinct raised VIP seating space, with a backdrop of an LED lit signature of Virat Kohli.
The colour palette includes shades of rust, olive green and blue in varying tones and textures to add drama to the whole space.
The finely curated menu by Chef Pawan Bisht is a diverse and vibrant multi-cuisine menu that caters to a global palate; right from staple Pizza-Burger re-inventions, to heavy-duty community platters, the menu balances it all with élan.
The beverage menu boasts of concocted signature cocktails that evoke generational moods, ranging from the classic 50s, Retro 70s to the current millennial generation.
The unabashedly quirky and experimental resto-bar also hosts an in-house DJ playing the intriguing beats of Commercial Pop and Hip-Hop to keep one hooked to the dance floor.
“This is exhilarating and I'm looking forward to being the voice that represents One8 commune as the Communication Director. One8 Commune is an extension of Virat Kohli’s personality, his fondness for food and the people of India and I’m stoked that he chose Kolkata to be the second outlet after Delhi. We are all hopeful that in the coming years the resto-bar will have a Pan India presence,” added Former Miss Universe India Ushoshi Sengupta, Communication Director at One8 Commune.
