What do you get when you blend the Rajasthani Haveli with Mughal motifs and dutch design sensibilities? Is it difficult to answer?
Here is the answer: Palladio Bar at Narain Niwas Palace, Kanota Bagh, Narain Singh Circle, off JLN Marg, Jaipur!
Bar Palladio is like a dream! A mystic place. It’s a fusion of design and play of colors; turquoise and white color splashed all around. The lighting creates it’s own magic. Hard to imagine? Yes, it is! So here is a picture for you to have a look!
When you look at the black and white marble checkered floor , you feel it has a Rajasthani flavor. After few seconds, when you glance at the lamp holder hanging from the ceiling, another thought flash your mind..may be it has a Mughal inspiration! When you settle on a seat, and get blown over by its peacock blue walls you get a feeling that it has a Moroccan influence. Now it gets increasingly difficult to answer. Whatever it is, the interiors of Bar Palladio will surely cast its spell on you! It has that magic!
The Bar Palladio is owned by an Italian, Ms Barbara Miolini, who shifted to Jaipur many years ago to start a textile business. the interior has been designed by a Dutch designer, Marie-Anne Oudejans.
