About Gymkhana

Gymkhana is inspired by Indian gymkhana clubs, where members of high society socialise, dine, drink and play sport.


Gymkhana was awarded a Michelin star in 2014.



The rooms

The Restaurant

Gymkhana serves classic and contemporary Michelin starred Indian cuisine, with a strong focus on chatpatta and boldly spiced sharing dishes.

The interior design of Gymkhana references the clubs of India with ceiling fans that hang from a dark-lacquered slatted oak ceiling, cut glass wall lamps from Jaipur and Grandmother Sethi’s barometer.


The Bar

The lower ground floor of Gymkhana is a modern day interpretation of a 17th Century East India punch house, with a grand aged brass bar at its heart. The room features slatted oak wall panelling, silk carpets and buttoned Chesterfield leather love booths and banquettes.

The Gymkhana bar specialises in classic Indian punches, cocktails that fuse spices with Indian spirits, a specialised gin and tonic list as well as a large selection of Whiskey, absinthe, arrack, lagers and Indian pale ales.

The bar is open until 1am.


Private events & group dining

Private Vaults

Gymkhana offers two private dining vaults secluded on either side of the lower ground floor. Guests are offered a range of set menus or are able to create their own bespoke menu and wine pairing.

With banquette seating in each vault, guests can dine in groups of up to 9 or up to 14.

Gymkhana is also available for exclusive hire on each level, seating 50 guests on the ground floor and 50 guests on the lower ground floor.
