Designed delightfully by Saheba Singh, lead designer at “This Is It Designs”, the new Smoke House Deli is nestled within one of India’s biggest tourist destinations and its décor reflects its locale. In the words of Saheba, “The concept of CP Smoke House Deli is based on the architectural design and plan of the old Connaught Place and we’ve also borrowed a little from the Venetian coffee houses and the two came together beautifully.”
With interiors inspired by the iconic architectural facades of CP and its imperial colonnades and imposing arches, the main idea was to immortalize the old stories and history of CP on the walls of Smoke House Deli – something to be cherished for years to come.
The walls that capture famous toy shops, book shops, jewellery shops, old restaurants and cafes, have been painstakingly hand-drawn, leaving you gaping for hours – of course, paired with a plate of delicious food. Walking into Smoke House Deli is like walking into a storybook.
