Covent Garden

New Dishoom in Covent Garden, London celebrates the golden age of Parsi theatre, the talkies of Bombay, and the city’s old Irani cafes and private residences. A  newly acquired space adjacent to the original Dishoom restaurant meant we could increase the overall footprint – touches of Art Nouveau, Art Deco, and mid-century design provide a layered, textured aesthetic.. On a research trip to Bombay, the Dishoom team visited theatres, cafes, and cinema houses, taking note of materials, colorways, and decorative detailing. Over 85 pieces of furniture and light fittings were bought and bespoke ironmongery commissioned to bring the space to life. The ground floor features over 40 pieces of cane furniture woven by craftsmen using traditional Indian methods, while delicate details in ornate fretwork panelling, perforated motifs, and the dining room’s mosaic floor transport guests to a bygone era.
