Delhi, the capital city, offers a kaleidoscope of experiences for those who believe in living life king-size. From street food to high-end fine dining, the charm this city has to bestow never ceases to amaze one. Foodies, as well as restaurateurs, have always been attracted to the beguiling history this city has to offer in terms of lip-smacking food and everlasting drinks. In the midst of all the dazzle and hustle & bustle of Khan Market and Hauz Khas, there is a contemporary cafe and lounge that has recently emerged in Malviya Nagar, Kleo, paying an ode to Greek mythology.
This aesthetic and zestful cafe, conceptualized and designed by Chromed Design Studio, led by Architect Abhigyan Neogi, mentally transports one to the vibrance and serenity of Greece. Owing its name to Queen Cleopatra, the clients envisioned the place to have a simple and clean-lined architectural design with pops of contemporariness in its decor, having bases in the very essence of Greek elements.
The cafe perpetually follows an extravagant colour-oriented theme, bringing in tones, and hues of blue and white, mimicking the Pantone shade that encapsulates the very logo and brand name of Kleo. This shade of blue brought about in furniture and lighting fixtures stands out amongst the monochromatic walls and floors, making a statement of belongingness and continuity in the space. A full-grown tree pre-existed on site, which was retained, and the lounge was planned around it, providing its soft play of shadows through its foliage.
