‘A warehouse experience inbuild for good times’, as they like to call it – The Dhan Mill resting in the heart of Chhattarpur’s farmhouses is a paradise for art, fashion, and food lovers alike. Here’s how!
An Art Lover’s Abode: If you enjoy all things art, the Dhan Mill can be a go-to destination for you! Right from walking through the Mediterranean lanes of Dhan Mill to relishing the beauty of art exhibitions at Nature Morte, a commercial gallery and a curatorial experiment, the Dhan Mill has it all. Founded in 1982 in New York’s East Village and closed in 1988, Peter Nagy revived Nature Morte in New Delhi in 1997 and ever since then, there has been no turning back. This art gallery has a flourishing legacy which represents an array of well-known artists such as Subodh Gupta, Anita Dube, Jitish Kallat, Bharti Kher, Manisha Parekh, Reena Saini Kallat, Imran Qureshi, Pushpamala N., and Mona Rai amongst others. What’s more? You can even awaken your inner artist while gorging on some delectable delights at The Palette Café that not only serves a wide range of yummy dishes, but also allows you to colour and sketch while your meal is getting prepared, as they offer a canvas and colours for you to draw your heart it out!
An Exquisite Tale of Fashion: The Dhan Mill initially garnered attention for being home to some of the most exquisite luxury designers in the country which include Nappa Dori, Sureena Chowdhri, Qbik, Aastha Narang, Mahima Mahajan, Sameer Madan, and Jay Walking amongst others. It is a great destination to get your hands on some of the most trendsetting outfits of the season. So, if you want to shop for some fashionable masterpieces for a wedding function or get that perfect party outfit for your next date or a girl’s day out, the Dhan Mill is sure to have something in store for everyone alike.
A Foodie’s Hub: What is a good outing without good food? So, the makers of Dhan Mill have aced the art of hosting some of the most niche cafés in their arena. The Dhan Mill is home to Colocal – Delhi’s first live bean to bar chocolate factory with a café experience, The Palette – a sophisticated restaurant with an outdoor alfredo seating serving authentic Italian and Lebanese cuisine, Café Dori – an intricately designed coffee paradise, and Quick Brown Fox – a modern and minimalist café that specializes in a wide range of gourmet cuisines. These select cafés make Dhan Mill a go to destination for quality food and coffee aficionados across all age groups.
To sum up, the Dhan Mill is not your usual outing destination – it is an experiential arena that will make you step into an alternate paradise of luxurious happenings right from food and art to fashion and lifestyle!
