After successfully running One Street Over and Bastian, Ranjit Bindra, Owner of Aallia Hospitality, felt the need of doing a space which reflects the life in India, and A Bar Called Life was conceptualised.
To this end he roped in national award-winning Chef Amninder Sandhu to execute an Indian comfort food menu, as well as Dhaval Pillay from the Taj to do the cocktail menu (complementing the food menu and reviving childhood memories reflecting through the drinks).
Looking at the competition around he did not want it to be just another regular bar with cheap drinks and music. The design of A Bar Called Life was inspired by his travels to the south of France where the bars would transform into complete party zones with different kinds of acts and high levels of energy in service.
The interiors were done keeping exactly that in mind; while the outside area was done to be a more open and an alfresco dining kind of a space for people to relax after a hard day of work, the inside space was planned keeping the transformation of the bar to a high energy club in mind.
