#HauteSpaces: Cafe Hydro Will Urge You To Take A Trip To Borivali RN
Who doesn’t love a pretty home/work space? I know the answer to that one. So now, every week I will go in search of the most stunning indoor spaces in our country that will inspire the inner decorator in you. Unique, colourful, or quirky, these photo stories are sure to leave you spellbound, like mouth-hanging-open spellbound. If you know or use a space that fits the description, ping me and we can chat! It can be anything from a home to an office, a studio to a restaurant — if it is fun, I’m game.
When Mumbaikars hear that a new restaurant has opened and that it’s amazing, they assume it’s in Bandra or in town. But, Cafe Hydro is a mindblowing exception. Recently opened in Borivali, this cafe is slowly becoming the talk of the town and is putting the burbs on the map. At least now my Sobo friends will come to the other side. Why? The kickass interiors.
Standing 3 floors tall, Hydro is an aqua-themed restaurant, but is so much more than that. Let’s start with the base, shall we? So, the ground floor, which is my fave one, has been designed to recreate a local train. Elements of a Mumbai local train have been fantastically incorporated in this cafe, with the berths as seats, handles as dècor, and colourful trunks to cut the blue of the interiors.
The first floor is when the aqua theme takes over. The scenic ocean feels and aquariums give you a vibe of dining under the sea. There are vintage, black street lamps that add to the charm. The seating here is more luxurious, with sofa seats and striped tables. Perfect for those who want to have a formal lunch meeting.
Next up, the second floor has a picnic aura to it. Pastel, flowery wallpaper on the ceiling and matching low seating furniture with huge red and orange pillows transport you to a Parisian park. All of this combined with abundant plants make it an ideal place for those who miss gardens in this bustling city.
Even the staircase within the restaurant are beautiful. There are various, artistically designed masks that line the walls, making your walk up that much more interesting. What’s more is that there is a table surrounded by hammocks instead of chairs and that just took cool to a whole new level. Hell, even the washroom is classy with quotes in quirky frames hanging on the off white, rugged brick wall.
So, the ground floor is where you chill with your pals, the first level is for serious conversations, and the last one is to share the feeling the love and sweet nothings. Something for everything just got real. The food there is just good as the interiors and no, they don’t serve alcohol, yet.
Kudos to the team of Bmozaic, the firm that designed this gorgeous space, and if you still don’t believe it’s real, just keep scrolling! Borivali just got a lot cooler.
