Saugato Bhowmik, Senior Vice- President, Consumer Product via com 18 Media Private Limited. Says,“It is an extension of MTV’s philosophy of killing boredom. The young have a very low attention span and so we aim to engage them in multiple pursuits. It is important for us as a brand to keep them engaged and connected through different offerings. MTV believes in entertaining the Indian youth across touch points such as TV, merchandise, live events and now an experiential space. This concept of WORK, CHILL & PLAY is a quirky mix of a curated food & beverage menu along with many other interesting features at the café that allow socialization, talent creation and overall fun which offers the youth multiple options to stay entertained through the day.”
“There is a shower in-house with your very own locker so you can freshen up after a long day of work and be ready for live entertainment, just-in-time.”
“It also promises to alleviate monotony. Keeping the youth in mind, it is designed such that it is much more than a cafe. This aspect combined with the glocal, fusion cuisine and never-heard before cocktails is what will attract customers. After all, not many places will allow you to record your singing at a recording room while sipping on curated cocktails MTV style.” He adds.
According to Chef Ranveer Brar,“The cafe’s culinary style hinges upon mouth-watering Indian food and offers a menu that has been detailed with fusion and in-house recipes. Some of the highlights of the menu include- Watermelon Sashimi, Butter Chicken Cannelloni, Achaari Salmon Nigiri, Chipotle Paneer Tikka, Biriyani Aranchini Veg etc. The cocktails and beverages have been specially designed by hospitality professional and cocktail mixologist Nitin Tiwari and cocktails like Terimaki from Japan, Angoori Badan from France and Beer Bomb from Belgium are already a hit at the cafe.”
FLYP@MTV is consistent with the DNA of MTV — Experimental, Informal, Irreverent and Witty. It can be said that the young generation’s taste in music, style, products, food, technology etc. has been kept in mind while working on the offerings of the cafe.
“The MTV-ness is the engaging and interactive elements we have incorporated. For example, since we are a co-working space, it was essential for us to ensure that our consumers benefit from each other so we have placed tablets at all tables in the café where our patrons can check the different people in café ast the same time as them and connect with them by sending a request on the tablet first and upon that being accepted meeting them in person.” says Bhowmik.
“We hope all these can come together to create an immersive experience for those visit the cafe.” He concludes.
