The Imperial Durbar Opens

Been to Tooting Bec recently? No, well here’s a reason to go: The Imperial Durbar, an Indian coffee and cocktail bar, has just opened there.

Brothers, Nicholas and Alastair Heathcote are behind the bar that gives customers a taste of 1940s India inspired by elements and innovations from Queen Victoria’s East India Company to Maharaja Bhupinder Singh’s reign. They hope to light a spark of nostalgia for anyone who has been to the  mystic Indian shores or dreams to, one day.

Inside you’ll find a mix of old Indian furniture with coffees, traditional Indian teas and Chai being served, alongside baked local goods and Indian dishes. If you’re after something a little punchier then they also have a 14 cocktailstrong  list which is set to evoke the hedonistic vibes of early British India, which can be enjoyed in the Imperial Garden.
