Shatranj The Bar
Not many are aware that shatranj, known better as chess was developed in India, inspired by the battles and strategies of ancient Indian kingdoms. We pay homage to this ancient Indian game with Shatranj, the chess-themed bar of Jaisalkot. Housing the choicest spirits from across the world, Shatranj is both for liquor aficionados and chess connoisseurs.
The bar wall itself is chess-themed, and mammoth chess pieces adorn the space behind the bartenders. Paintings depicting chess scenes embellish the walls of the setting, thoughtfully painted in dark blue. The menu comes in wooden boxes that are actually chess boards, along with marble chess pieces. So while you wait out for your drinks, go ahead and have a game.
We like to pronounce it as “check and mate and cheers!”
