Making its way into the bustling streets of Mumbai, Derby launches its flagship outlet in BKC on 10th June. Dating back to the origin of horse races in Derbyshire, England, the word ‘Derby’ (pronounced DAR-bee) is defined as a sporting contest between local rivals. Bringing to your table, a number of such diverse staking races, this eater-tainment hub enables you to compete and bid on games and events simulated virtually by their Artificial Intelligence (AI) driven software.
The wins from the events will assist the guests to earn reward points via the Derby App. Guests can earn discounts on their bill, while they transform into a true Derby-ian. The Derby App for phones also offers guests a chance to experience the visual appeal of the food and cocktails on offer. Derby as an eater-tainment destination, will surely serve as an ice breaker for guests looking to do something out-of-the-mainstream, while enjoying a uniquely interactive dining experience.
Inspired from different variations of Derby, this place vibes young, energetic, and warm. With a colourful setting paired with old style layered brick walls, and blue and white striped floors, its decor exudes that of a race-course. The DJ Apron is roused by the front of a horse stable, whereas the back has metallic letters with the bulbs reading ‘Ride your luck’.
It’s table tops, an amalgamation of solid colours, wood and prints, along with custom created artefacts like the playing cards artwork, the shadow box (inspired from the demolition derby), and the geodesic horse sculpture, give Derby a proper middle of a bet like feel.
