Hammer’s New Roof Top Dining Experience Is a Class Apart
Hammer’s existing outlet at Park Street has added a few more floors and open-air zones. Both levels are spacious, and airy and present a classy look. Swarup Dutta, the talented Scenographer is responsible for the renovations.
He said, “After I finished Octa, I was approached for the rooftop. It was mostly green with foliage in the wall and I thought it’s interesting to retain that. What I have done is I have replaced the garden furniture with wicker and cane one’s downstairs and a more Parisian seating upstairs. The floor is graphical with accents of black and I have taken the same elements onto the walls. So, the space can be used for two different parties and it’s cosy and non-cluttered”.
The menu has also been given some new spruce with new items making up to 70 percent of the menu, however, the signature favourites have been retained.
You can savour the vibrant cocktails and delicious finger food here, all while enjoying the cool breezy atmosphere and witnessing the beautiful sunset over the Kolkata Skyline with a spectacular view of Park Street.
Move over from regular sandwiches and take a big bite of the Smoked Salmon Bagel with Herbed Scramble Egg at Hammer. Your Breakfast will turn into a celebration of flavours and textures with the delightful morning menu. The Brie and Bocconcine Pesto Cherry Tomato Caprese Salad looks aesthetic and tastes absolutely fresh.
Edameme Charcoal Crunchy has the right drama, soft crunch and the right amount of the melt-in-your-mouth feel.
The other gems on the menu include the smoky and succulent Murgh Angaar Bedgi, the perfect bite-size appetisers marinated in a yoghurt-and-red chilli paste, and the Hammer Mezze Board that has something for everyone.
Some of the drinks that are a must-try at Hammer include the Kaccha Mango twist with Bloody Mary: a tangy and spicy treat, Vampire Blood: a mix of Jägermeister and sambuca that brings back Halloween party memories and the Hammer Special Batida de Coco, a tender coconut drink with lavender and rosemary.
Swarup is a close buddy and he did Octa as well. He envisions an interior project as fashion and turns a dull corner into a cool one. We had hammer which has loyalists and wanted to offer more. So, we added more floors to give an open-air option that’s a trend now. Our motto is good food, good mood. And hence we have brought a new menu keeping our signature dishes intact. Plus, we have a good Delhi-based coffee brand. So, Hammer now has everything. From coffee to hard drinks and breakfast to dinner and private space to an open-air one”, said Abhishek Kajaria, owner of Hammer.
