In the 1930s, the global styles of Art Deco and Jazz swung into Bombay, shaking up the cityscape with their cheeky colours and patterns, quick tempo’d quicksteps and “hot” new music. Pianos appeared on cinema facades, swing bands were sold out and Bombay’s smart set loosened their trousers and cut a bob to be up to speed on the dance floor.

With the help of our friend Naresh Fernandes – whose book Taj Mahal Foxtrot tells the story of Bombay in swing time – Dishoom Kensington (and our one-off immersive theatrical production Night at the Bombay Roxy) remembers this golden age of Bombay jazz.
