About Gymkhana

Gymkhana is inspired by the elite clubs of India where members of high society socialise, eat, drink, and play sport.

In 2024, Gymkhana was awarded Two Michelin stars for its classic Indian cuisine, after its first star in 2014.


The rooms

The Restaurant

Gymkhana’s two floors offer two distinctive looks and feels. The ground floor, resplendent in tones of jade green and polished dark timber, is inspired by the residential mansions of Kolkata and Pondicherry. Down a mirrored staircase, the lower ground floor references subtle elements of north-Indian architecture and a vivid colour palette of peach and Kashmiri chill red.

Throughout the restaurant, an array of original Gymkhana features can be found, including hunting trophies from the Maharaja of Jodhpur and Grandmother Sethi’s barometer.

Restaurant Bar

The restaurant bar, on the lower ground floor, specialises in our collection of Club Cocktails, which showcase the finest Indian ingredients and flavour combinations, offering a modern Indian interpretation on renowned classics.

Private dining & events



Located on either side of the Lower Ground Floor, our two Private Vaults offer the perfect space for an intimate dinner.

Private Vault 40 seats a maximum of 10 guests in banquette style seating. Private Vault 30 is a semi-private vault, home to the Gymkhana wine cellar, also seating up to 10 guests.




For larger groups, we offer semi-private hire of Gymkhana’s lower ground floor as well as exclusive hire of the whole restaurant.


Located above Gymkhana is 42, our exclusive cocktail lounge. 42 is available for drinks and canapé receptions, and exclusive hire alongside Gymkhana.

42 is Gymkhana’s Mayfair cocktail bar, also located at 42 Albemarle Street. The cocktails are a showcase of Indian ingredients and nostalgic Indian flavours, served in the intimacy of 42’s distinctive lounge.

Tuesday 5pm – 12am
Wednesday 5pm – 1am

42 is also available for private hire seven days a week.
