The capital’s cool and connected have found a new hotspot – The Quorum

The capital’s cool and connected have found a new hotspot - The Quorum


featured-

About a decade or so ago, as a stranger to Delhi, I remember wondering—how do you find home in a city of cliques? Short answer—you figure it out! As you go along, you’ll be able to discover the shorter cuts too. And the latest to join the expanding list of ways to find your way in the bludgeoning metropolis, is the urban lifestyle club. It is fast becoming the necessary interlude to hectic urban life—here, the definition of community reduces to the last dialled on your phone screens, and you invariably fall into a stalemate of favourite bars, cafés and homes of those nearer than dearer (first world problems and the like). A far cry from the gin-soaked gymkhanas, the new urban club is a sort of oasis for the like-minded and self-made.

Between the concrete and glass of Gurgaon’s engorged city life, tucked away on the first floor of yet another high rise, is the capital’s latest urban lifestyle club. Created by Vivek Narain and Sonia Jahan—niche, private and at a sprawling 22,000sqft—The Quorum is the the capital’s whispered members-only “It spot”. At barely three months old, this is where the cool and connected have already started gathering.

Lay of the land

Ambrish Arora’s Studio Lotus is responsible for the impeccably designed space, which strikes the perfect balance between private and community spaces. Its industrial-styled ceilings connect the varied areas that include a business centre with deep work spaces (co-working is a thing of the past here), perfect for the high-flying remote worker, along with a gym run by Sumaya Dalmia, an acoustically sound screening space that doubles into a Pilates-or-what-you-may-studio, banquet halls and a café.

Their wood-panelled library is still filling up with a routine circulation of books donated by members themselves. And just when you think the space is all hyper-modern, the library shelves slide away to reveal a hidden prohibition-era styled den, and the charm of closed-door club life comes flooding through. But it’s the members lounge that is the throbbing pulse of the space—the bar is busy spinning artisanal cocktails, while the food is immaculately presented and their kitchens promise visiting Michelin-starred chefs for special dinners every now and then.

A calendared affair

But the star of this club is what they call The Alley—it is the first thing you see when you walk into a gallery curated by the Kiran Nadar Museum of Art. The appropriately titled, “The Shifting Horizon” is currently on view, studded with sublime works from SH Raza to GR Iranna. With prominent arts programming on their calendar—Ram Kumar recently gave a talk there and the weekend saw a children’s art workshop (FYI: Sundays are the only days where kids are allowed here)—art connoisseurs might just have a new destination to appreciate and engage with art.

For Narain, programming is key. The Quorum is not a rent-a-space events shop—instead their thoughtful programming reaches out to their members’ likes and interests. Think jazz nights, intimate book launches, the occasional documentary screening and maybe even an opera. Their aim is to surprise and delight with thoughtful experiences. The other big draw is that membership here gives access to a select group of clubs in London, New York, Tokyo, San Francisco, Sydney and Manila.

But in a city built on power corridors, what makes The Quorum a current urban haven is its member list—a finely curated group of both veterans and ingénues, with a sprinkling of the in-betweeners too. So if you’re searching for some comfortable luxury and fun company, this is your new go-to space. Scroll through the slideshow for a quick look.
