As the third Social in Delhi, Odeon Social is an ode to the timeless stories embedded in the walls and pillars of Connaught Place. Designed by Saheba Singh, Social stays committed to the creation of innovative and easily accessible workspaces across the city.
Social’s design ethos represents minimum intervention and maximum up-cycle and all elements used in the space have been sourced from schools and offices in and around CP and Central Delhi. The entrance is a grand wooden staircase with rounded balusters and grand posts and the Social hashtag-engraved capitals.
You are transported back to another era the moment you enter; the era of typewriters, landlines and handwritten notes. It comprises a mix of old school furniture, complete with table tops that can be opened and a teacher’s desk for the DJ console, with church pews from prayer rooms aligned alongside long community tables. The 42 ft long bar counter looks somewhat like a chemistry lab with beakers and flasks lining the bar. Carefully aligned art deco lights and table lamps are what complete the look.
