In these lands of waking dreams, of sage historians and delightful eccentrics, the interpretation of your desires is imperative to our planning. Elegant venues and exciting outdoor spaces are especially designed to ensure our guests take back with them, many memorable experiences.
Each has its own story to tell.
The Gaushala is our outdoor area and was the favourite spot of the late Maharaja who personally reared local indigenous cattle, his favourite Raathi cows. This open area was where they were once given absolute freedom to roam. Notably, the space has undergone a complete transformation and today, under canopies supported by original iron cast pillars you can start your morning in the fresh outdoors to the tune of classical Hindustani music. An exciting menu of petite collations and deliciously blended cocktails welcomes the evening hour where not only does the light change but so does the music and energy for these wide-open spaces are designed to flatter the evening, the mood, and you.
P&C is the timeless and utterly elegant dining room, designed as a snapshot in time to capture the charm and finesse of the graceful lady of the manor. The initials P&C are a tribute to her favourite apparel of Pearls strings and Chiffon saris. The menu calls upon her exquisite culinary heritage. The re-rendered and accomplished ‘Table’ features menu items meticulously singled out from the annals of history that were the once upon a time favourites of the Royals of Bikaner. P&C features a curated wine list, table-side preparations, and Tiffin lunches. With banqueting options on offer, experiences at P&C are designed to satisfy any culinary curiosity.
In keeping with our variety and range, this whimsical space aptly named Mad Hatter - The Bake House, presents traditional confectionary and baked goods. Warm, convivial and comfort giving, it serves up puddings and pies sit right beside toffees and rum balls and fudges of all sorts. Indian estate coffees and teas add to the rich aromas as do cold press coffee towers and our deeply decadent hot chocolate. This is a space that is at once familiar and agreeable and is intended to bring back memories of innocence and happy times for them, for us, and you!
This unique dining experience, especially for the book lovers at Narendra Bhawan is hosted at our all-dining restaurant - 'Pearls and Chiffons'. This concept dining experience is a magical pairing of food on your plate with excerpts from 7 literary classic books, like - 'The Bell Jar' by Sylvia Plath, 'Moby Dick' by Herman Melville, 'The Brotherhood of the Grape' by John Fante, 'The Last Chinese Chef' by Nicole Mones, 'To the Lighthouse' by Virginia Woolf, 'Le Ventre de Paris' by Emile Zola and ' Ulysses ' by James Joyce. You shall be amazed at the special and distinct matching of these cuisines around the world to the tales by renowned authors. This experience becomes an unforgettable dining affair when our chef reads out about the curated delicacies from the menu and more.
‘Of all my peoples my Muslim community most charmed me. It was their great sense of aesthetic sensibilities, their food, their language, their rituals every part of their society is so designed to engage and enchant.’ The deep blue infinity pool takes its colour from the bright Bikaner sky and offers great vantage views of the city; the old and the new. The space transforms at twilight and takes on a mantle of celebration with starlit skies, live grills, and party music. What better venue to savour the once Mughal cuisine of Bikaner, lovingly served in crescent shaped thalis.
‘… and we have heard many adepts say, with joy in their heart, “What a pleasure it is to have a good appetite, when we are certain of a good meal.’ It is with this in mind that we re-calibrate the menu at the kings table with renditions culled from the annals of culinary history.
When at Narendra Bhawan, you could always ask us to fulfil your desire for experiencing the native Marwari cuisine. This comes to you in an elaborate Marwari Thali that is sure to satisfy your craving for some authentic Marwari cuisine experience. The cuisine of Marwar was influenced by many factors arising from the topography of the land and the chefs hence chose to use minimum amount of water replacing it with clarified butter (Ghee), milk and buttermilk and local spices to create flavourful chutneys. You may enjoy this culinary feast at our tea room or the restaurant that starts with appetizers, followed by sorbets, curries and dessert. Your wish is our command!
