You will feel the joie de vivre the moment you step inside Clubate. As your eyes rove around the mischievous décor, the first thing you will notice is its design. With cable spool for table and planks from wooden crates as furniture pieces and paint boxes concealing lights the interiors carry the deeply motivated philosophy of “sustainability.”
It’s then that you will realize that the man behind the restaurant carries deep conviction and is unusually creative.
And yes, you are right.
Dipin Rajrai…! The founder of Clubate…! "You must meet him when you're there!” He is a delightful man. Interacting with him is having a wonderful conversation. And as you get to know him you will find that he has worn different hats at different times. All of them with a panache that only he can carry.
Starting with managing his own Advertising Agency that had carved a niche in the market his creative surge got him into Art Direction, Photography, Ideation and even sitting in front of the computer turning the ideas into a design. But the artist in him was not satisfied. Branching out into Interior Designing that won him accolades and clientele he ended up carving another enterprise.
Still like any hyperactive creative person he wanted to explore. Seeking newer horizons brought him into the business of eating. Entering into partnership with another zealous friend he established an eclectic chain of cafes that gained name for its design that was built around books.
It was from here that he took a giant leap of faith – a nerve wrecking decision to go solo. And came up with his distinctive flavour. Clubate. A blend of tantalizing food and captivating interiors.
