Ambassadors Clubhouse opening

13th June 2024

JKS Restaurants is to launch of Ambassadors Clubhouse this summer in Mayfair.

The group, founded by Jyotin, Karam and Sunaina Sethi, has revealed its new venue will “celebrate food, drink, music and culture” from the Punjab.

Named after the Sethi’s maternal grandfather, a former Indian ambassador, the restaurant will take inspiration from his summer house in Dalhousie (formerly part of Punjab) and north India’s abandoned party mansions, as well as the founders’ own Punjabi heritage.

The menu will feature classic papads and chaat, lesser-known tandoor kebabs and curries cooked in cast-iron karahis and clay matkas.

An all-day drinks list will focus on tequila and mezcal cocktails blended with regional produce. Highlights will include a selection of “Punjabi margaritas” all made with exotic north Indian fruits and citrus and paired with chaat masala spiced salts. There will also be beer and wine.

The 140-cover split-floor restaurant with a 40-cover outdoor heated veranda and three private dining spaces: The Raja Rani Room, seating up to 14 guests, The Jungli Room, seating up to six guests, and The Tamasha Room, seating up to ten guests. The dining room will feature a central bar with booth seating and counter dining while the lower ground floor will feature a drinking and dining space, alongside a DJ booth, open until late. From September, a dedicated music series will be hosted on the lower ground floor on selected nights.
