The sentiment of ‘Bombay’ meets the contemporary ‘Mumbai’ in the art district of the city through the spanking new all day cafe and bar, 145! Drawing inspiration from the eccentricities of Kala Ghoda, it truly captures the essence of the city.
Old Bombay charm meets modern design aesthetics in the all day space which offers global comfort food with a playful spin. Sudheer Bahl’s son, Ishaan Bahl launches this venture with Sunny Sara, Shashi Thadani and Ritik Bhasin on December 21, 2015.
Designed by the well-known Interior Designer Duo – Busride Brothers, the space is largely inspired by the streets of Bombay. It captures the stylishness of the art precinct, the mad eccentricity of its markets and creates synergy through an innovative food and bar menu. Here, you will find old favourites in new avatars.
The menu represents the world’s most revered cuisines, serving food for the soul right from breakfast to dinner. The globally inspired menu will cater to all kinds of taste buds.
