Although driven by the rustic theme, given that the inspiration for Byg Brewski comes from the valour of the Vikings, the venue maintains a bespoke look. Speaking about the design, Byg Brewski Managing Director Ajay Gowda said, “We didn’t want to take the overdone rustic route, so we wanted the feel of a ruin, around which the space is reclaimed and created, which we believe can be timeless.” “We wanted the space to be large enough so there is a congregation of a large number of people, who then could sprawl and move around for varied experiences along their route, pretty much like a town square feel,” he added.
Byg Brewski has been designed by Mathew & Ghosh Architects. Speaking about the soul of the space, Soumitro Ghosh, expressed, “The place completely underplays itself as a ‘have been around’ kind of ambience that is unpretentious and easy to be with, over and over... Byg Brewski is designed as an oasis in the non-descript urban sprawl, a place where memories of happy moments shall have image.”
