There is always something new happening in Pink City and this time we discovered something Blue in the striking Pink City, a new trendy place for a supreme and ultra royal experience.
Yes, we are talking about Jaipur’s historic and one of the most happening places; Narain Niwas Palace. Historic because the place gives you a feel of the opulence of Maharajas and Happening because of the recently opened ‘Bar Palladio’ in its premises , which is one of the most delightful and fanciful lounges of the city.
Designed by a brilliant Dutch designer, Marie-Anne Oudejans, Bar Palladio imitates the accord of Indian as well as European setting, which is its USP.
As you arrive at the main entrance of the most luxurious heritage hotel of the city with serene ambiances and old world charm – you are extremely impressed. View of the exterior courtyard lets you know that this is going to be cool, quiet and restful. Nestled at the stunning lush large green lawn, the white & blue canopies of Bar Palladio captivate you with its beauty and you know you are in for a royal treat.
We went during daytime so we did not have the choice of sitting outdoors when the temperature was almost 40 degree. But it actually compelled us to visit the place at night and we truly witnessed the divine beauty of the place. As we walked inside, the first look was that of the bar and the old styled traditional lanterns hanging on the ceiling. We looked for place to sit; there were separate private sitting areas. The lobby is wonderfully embellished with peacock blue and white painting all over. Definitely the interiors provide you a wonderful and delightful experience.
The experience is one of its kinds, which is just perfect to have lavishly romantic time-or for a tête-à-tête. The open bar is quite attractive. Food tastes good but yes quite expensive. Though the menu is quite elaborate but for Indian’s who are not frequent to Italian or other specialty restaurants might find it difficult to decide what to order. It’s better to ask and confirm with the server before you place your order.
Overall an ambiance was cool and comfortable. For a refreshing change, in a place like this you get to see more of Non Indian faces 🙂
All in all, Bar Palladio is a most welcome addition to Jaipur.
