Sky lounges, terrace dining on rise in city

on

Dining out, hitherto, was a normal affair, but with the opening of sky lounges, terrace gardens and theme-based restaurants, dining out it has become an experience in itself. When many of the big malls failed to attract customers, hotels, clubs, gyms, sky lounges have come forward to fulfill the vacuum in health and leisure related activities.

Although various big malls on the verge of closure are lying vacant in the region, several sky lounges are under construction to mark their entry this year, as dining in the open is becoming a rage, preferred by both young and the old alike.

“We are receiving bookings for sky lounges even in this season, we arrange fans at the rooftop, but we fall less of space in the month of September to November, as we receive bookings two or three days prior. Most of the NRI’s and young students who visit our sky lounge enjoy the open ambience that is based on ‘jungle theme’, they take selfies and listen to light music. The entire atmosphere acts as a stress buster. People with busy lifestyles can find solace here,” said Ashwani Patial, manager, Jungle Gourmet.

Many hotels in the city are gearing up to tap the new trend. “We receive several requests for sky lounge parties, people in the town demand open space to celebrate their special days. We are in progress to have sky lounge in the hotel. Youngsters these days are fond of partying in the open yard, as natural lighting and cloudy weather is quite alluring,” said Harpreet Kaur, a representative from Days Hotel.

“We have provision of under sky parties at our rooftop, we have even arranged nearly 15 to 20 functions last year from September to December. We do not have a specific ambience fixed at our rooftop, we have left space which can hold gathering of 100 to 150 persons. We arrange theme as well as simple parties as per the requirement, but most of the youngsters prefer DJ parties in open that serves food and drinks in standing,” shares food and beverages coordinator from Ramada, Neha Verma.
