Jasmeet Marwah, Chairman at Funbars Hospitality Pvt. Ltd. added, “Our vision is to create an experience for the customers by building communities, driving culture, curating events and entertainment for anyone and everyone. The fundamental thought of coming up with a space like Flyp@MTV café was to create a platform essentially for the youth. Beginning from promoting fresh talent on the stage from music, comedy, dance genres to brining the best artists of the country, eventually, giving the audience a chance to witness a new form of entertainment every time they choose to visit the café. With Chef Ranveer Brar on board, we were positive that the menu is going to be class apart; adding to it was the technology enhanced space. Our aim is to make FLYP@MTV Café a cult hangout destination across the country, starting with Delhi, second instalment in Chandigarh and now in Mumbai. FLYP@MTV Café is sure to capture the attention of the youth in Mumbai for it is not just another Café but it’s an experience.”
Speaking on the launch Raj Nayak, COO, Viacom18 said, “MTV is an iconic brand that reaches out to the youth through multiple touchpoints – be it on air, on line, through events or through MTV branded products which carry a certain brag value to them. With the launch of FLYP@MTV in Delhi two years ago, we also created a destination where young people could experience every aspect of MTV in all its glory. After tasting immense success in the capital city, we believe it is now the right time for us to bring this extremely popular youth destination to the city of Mumbai to give Mumbaikars a taste of FLYP@MTV. It’s not just a party destination or YET another ‘concept’ café. What FLYP@MTV provides is a holistic MTV experience which can be experienced through the décor, the food, the drinks and of course, through the impeccably designed events and gigs. It’s fresh, it’s exciting, it’s irreverent and a place you’ll want to see and want to be seen at!”
Announcing the launch of the café in Mumbai Saugato Bhowmik, Head, Consumer Products and Integrated Network Solutions, Viacom18 said, “When we launched FLYP@MTV Café in Delhi two years ago, we knew our fans were going to enjoy the space but what excited us even more was that people appreciated us not only for the unique MTV aspects of the café but for the specially curated food and drinks menu as well. Now with a menu which has a unique Mumbaiya twist, with a good dollop of global fusion specially curated by star chef Ranveer Brar in combination with the best and the latest from the world of music and entertainment live at the café, FLYP@MTV Café is sure to become the default destination for lovers of good food and those looking forward to having a good time in Mumbai!”
