Swissôtel Kolkata has inaugurated Wykiki, the first outlet in the city to bring the best of South Asian cuisine under one roof. The opulent bar is vibrant in its semi-alfresco setting amidst a lush tropical ambience.

Wykiki, located at City Centre II in the eastern city, is a lot more than just a restaurant experience - it offers a smart dining experience with a combination of design, ambience, music and gastronomy.

Subhrajit Bardhan, general manager, Swissôtel Kolkata, said, “We are excited to bring the latest hotspot in town with Wykiki and aim to provide a first-of-its-kind experience to Kolkata. The concept itself is unique which promises to cater to the needs of food enthusiasts, as well as party-hoppers, under one roof.”

“Additionally, the distinctive décor is always a big part of our concept and with Wykiki. We want to create a setting that embraces gatherings and enhances the overall experience,” he added.

The concept behind this pan-Asian street bar beholds the journey of a chef who travelled across Asia to bring his handpicked choices and soulful taste of authentic Asia. Swissôtel is committed to providing healthy menu options, which incorporates the freshest ingredients and artisanal craft quality of food and beverages.

The specially-curated menu is optimised to appeal to the contemporary taste buds. The creative culinary team of Wykiki promises to provide a journey experience of the chaotic Tsukiji fish market in Tokyo to the galangal and lemongrass-scented streets of Penang, the floating markets in Bangkok and the Hanoi alleys filled with Pho hawkers.

Commenting on the launch of Wykiki, Ashis Rout, its executive chef, said, “Wykiki is for the glitterati and all those who have been missing the presence of a chic and elegant space with a youthful vibe, soulful music, happening events and sumptuous F&B (food and beverage) offerings under the same roof.”

“We intend to keep up the tempo by mixing events, cuisines and music to create an experience perfectly described as the best in Asia. While remaining faithful to the heritage of South Asian-inspired food, we will bring our own straightforward interpretations to the food and drink menus that make them intriguing and yet approachable,” he added.

Culinary excellence and artisan heritage of the brand is reflected in some of the Wykiki dishes, including Grandma Yu’s special Bibimbap from the Meong Dong Street Market in Seoul and the Murtabak from Stadium Boulevard of Singapore, amongst many others.

Wykiki offers live kitchen, exquisite cocktails, dramatic food courses and sensational desserts to provide you with a glimpse of the best from around Asia in Kolkata. This Asian street bar will also be serving Asian-inspired cocktails by Wykiki’s in-house master mixologists – a perfect retreat after work for a quiet drink with friends or colleagues.

In addition to this, the outlet is geared to host food and beverage festivals, exclusive sake-tasting seminars and soulful musical evenings on a regular basis. The dining experience begins with tapas-style mini-eats and fusion cocktails served in an informal setting with the accompaniment of a live DJ from South-East Asian nightclubs.
