Let’s give a quick thought and question ourselves, where do we go when we want to have a mini blast with our friends? A café maybe. What about the family celebrations, like an anniversary, relative meets etc?
A fancy family fine dine restaurant, think about those peppy DJ pubs we all long for to shake a leg or two, or that secret desire where we just want to forget the world and may be cherish for a little hangover afterwards,
A pub or a lounge, right? In short we have to go to different places, experiment with rates and taste. Haven’t we wished for a similar space where we could align all our celebrations? Well the wishing part is over. The City of Nawabs never disappoints you. Located opposite to the Sahara Hospital, Gomti Nagar; with Metropolitan Club you can have all of them under one roof i.e. a pub or a lounge, a fine dine restaurant, a buffet, an open grill and a banquet hall too.
As you look up to the establishment you witness an eye catching graffiti doodled outdoor,And there is where your ample amount of choices begin. Every floor of the restaurant is planned and fashioned for different age groups and occasions.
The basement will give you a feel of a premium lounge. It is ideal for your luxury lounge parties and for getting bottoms up. Your birthday celebration would scale up to a different level here. You must have had Brain Freezer, Double Apple mint hookah but still for once you can keep your favourite flavour aside and give AK47 a shot, this hookah disguised as the rifle takes you high enough to enjoy the heart popping beats of the DJ. Don’t underestimate it, it’s one of a kind lounge in the city with high quality discotheque and an amazing sound system which will give you perhaps the best sound experience in lucknow. Embrace the idyllic lounge cum disk cum bar cum pub; whatever you wish to name it.
Ground floor for perfect fine dining with your family. So you’re Daddy’s princess or mommy’s Prince and you want to be pampered in a royal looking manner. Well Metropolitan Clubs is your stop. Velvet textured walls with dim golden lights will allow you to have the best conversations. And who knows you may end up humming your favorite tunes on the centrally placed automatic grand piano.
First floor to suffice the foodie and boozer in you. We all love unlimited food, and here is when a buffet comes to our rescue. Living up to the name “Cheer Peer” you can raise a toast with your friends and eat as much as you want in the buffet. You can also plan up your small get together in the space allocated to silence all the hustle-bustle.
Second floor, the Banquet hall. You don’t have to run for your celebrations to distant places. A well-organized banquet hall will serve your purpose for different occasions like theme based parties, conferences, business seminars or a joyous family function.
The open air grill area. You definitely don’t want to sit in a room locked up on a pleasant evening isn’t it?, Don’t give second thoughts and rush to enjoy the evening with your friends, family or partner. The greenery and ambiance accompanied with live tunes of violins and guitar on every Saturday and Sunday evening are sure to transport you to another level of awesomeness.
Metropolitan Clubs will satisfy your appetite like never before; be it food, cocktails or mocktails. We all eat Daal- Chaval on regular basis but you need to try Daal Chaval Aala Sinito to know how yummy and different the usual food can be, If you are not daring enough go for Paneer Shashlik Sizzler with Tomato Rice, sweet looking paneer that turns out to be spicy and when paired with Tomato Rice it meddles with all taste known to mankind (well almost!) its sour, sweet and spicy.
Non vegetarian’s can find their delight in Murg Makhmali Tikka which looks exactly like a soft makkhan mushball. All you need to do is pinch it and amaze yourself with the chicken stuffed inside. You can never escape Briyani being in Lucknow. Nawabi Gosht Briyani offers you mutton tasting better than any other Briyanis you have had. The gravy freshly prepared in Ghee is spell binding.
You can calm down your little birds with Veg Lazania or Thai chicken with peanut sauce accompanied with Raspberry Cooler or Green Apple Mojito with soda or alcohol of your choice. (In wine there is wisdom, in beer there is freedom and in water there is bacteria. The choice is yours!)
To wrap up you’ll need a sweet delicacy. The huge variety of desserts will make you eat more than your normal course. The savour will win and you won’t mind adding a few more calories.
