Hotel in Pune, India Re-Opens Rooftop Lounge With Celebration

Courtyard Pune City Centre's EVVIVA Sky Lounge a Hotspot for Locals and Visitors

PUNE, INDIA--(Marketwired - Sep 11, 2013) - On September 6, 2013, Pune's nightlife scene got a new familiar addition, only this newcomer has more than a little experience in entertaining. After a soft opening in December 2012, Courtyard Pune City Centre's EVVIVA Sky Lounge officially opened its doors with a re-launch party that drew everyone from celebrities and socialites to tourists and locals. After this exciting evening, it was easy to see how EVVIVA, which means "rejoice" in Italian, got its name.

The opening celebration at this rooftop bar and restaurant in Pune, India featured music spun by DJ Pranav, who had guests on the dance floor the entire evening. Of course all that dancing worked up an appetite, and EVVIVA treated party-goers to signature dishes, such as trio of bruschetta, galouti kebabs and grilled New Zealand lamb ribs, created by Executive Chef Shubhendu Kadam. Bartenders kept the good vibes flowing, creating a mix of signature and classic cocktails like Tiny Ten, Evviva Martini, and Bull Frog.

The third food and beverage outlet at this hotel near Pune's Railway Station, EVVIVA is "the crowning glory in the hotel's 2-year journey," Vineet Mishra, General Manager of this Pune hotel with an outdoor leisure pool, says. "The rooftop lounge was closed for 2 months during the monsoons, and now a beautiful white tent blankets the space adding to the contemporary and elegant interiors. EVVIVA is back to embrace the city's party-goers with open arms."

Located on the hotel's 8th floor, the lounge is the ideal setting for every occasion, whether a romantic night with that special someone, a way to impress a client or a spot to get together with friends for an evening of good conversation and cocktails. To create a chic, comfortable and welcome setting, the lounge was designed to complement rather than compete with the stunning Pune skyline, which serves as the backdrop for the venue. Here visitors will find piled-stone finishes, rustic wooden flooring, sleek textured-fabric sofas and a circular bar.

"Our aim is to give Pune a nightlife destination located in the heart of the city, which focuses on a great lounging experience complemented by a phenomenal view," Mishra added. "Pune enjoys a great nightlife, and EVVIVA... looks at upping the ante as far as lounge destinations in the city are concerned."
