Far away from the madding world in the charming Hauz Khaz village, the new joint named “The Ziel House” is all set to take the clubbing and partying experience to an altogether different echelon. Spanning over three floors and an area space totaling 15,000 sq ft carpet area, The Ziel House showcases a resplendently different theme on each of its three different floors. While the club Lounge bar on the fourth floor depicts the uber metropolitan look, the café lounge with a fine dining restaurant and the sheesha and hookah section on the third floor is a blend of the Thai and the Arabic theme.
In stark contrast to the third and the fourth floor, the terrace which is fast nearing completion will portray a contemporary Goan theme replete with shacks, lot of greenery, and a breathtaking view of the serene surroundings and the verdant greens. The seafood menu will combine fresh seafoods blended with exotic ingredients.

The Ziel House staff is not fastidious about guests hopping from one floor to another. On the contrary, they welcome the ‘hopping’ as it enables them to showcase their entire place.
The beauty of the place being that while it showcases a distinct ambience, cuisine and era on each of its 3 floors, the venue wears a regal integrated look when hosting one big party spanning 3 floors for a large gathering of guests.
Unlike some party venues that are claustrophobic, due diligence has gone into ensuring sufficient spacing for easy mobility which results in refreshing guests when they foray into the premises of the club house.
The concept of lounge bars and café’s on the terrace has since time immemorial played a pivotal role in contributing to the popularity and success of joints, and ‘The Ziel House’ certainly is no exception. The upcoming lounge bar on its terrace will have a distinctive design pattern and ambience.
The club house has a separate lounge section with designer comfy sofas, restaurant area, DJ Dance Floor. Added to this, sufficient spacing has been provided near the bar area to help guests chill in the open area. A large area on the lounge bar facing towards the parking zone and the forests has been carved as a ‘smoking zone’ for smokers.
In addition to the ambience and the location, the place is expected to gain popularity because of its Lebanese cuisines, and an opulent array of kebabs and cocktails. The choice of wines, cocktails and Hors D’ Oeuvres offered here is different. The Lebanese Platter, Chicken Shawarma, Shish Taouk, and Grilled Sole are some of the specialty cuisines for the foodies that the place boasts of.

Well it’s not difficult to imagine the response that the place will evoke once it starts promoting itself through the social media and other modern day advertisement channels. Says Arjun Bhardwaj, Director The Ziel House, “The strength of our place is not just its regal ambience, comfy lounges, scrumptious food or vast concoction of cocktails, but more significantly the ‘feel safe factor’ which gives the much needed sense of security to young ladies, families and other guests. After screening the habitual mischief mongers at the entry point, our security staff blocks their entry to avert any unruly situation. It’s the quality and not the quantity that matters to us. We have a stringent ‘closed door policy’ for a rowdy mob which is just hell bent about creating ruckus. Setting up an opulent club house in a place like Hauz Khaz village was a challenging affair. We had to brainstorm on copious of factors to ensure that the Club House we launch, caters to party goers across diverse spectrums. The Ziel House can host parties and gatherings of 15 to 250 persons quite comfortably, with different price options. Our endeavour is to ensure a memorable clubbing time for all our revered guests. As most people believe in the ‘work hard, partying even more hard’ culture, we have designed an inimitable set up where the workaholics can unwind in a flamboyant and rejuvenating ambience after a hectic day at work. Youngsters need no special reason or occasion to let their hair down, as every day of the year could be party time depending upon their mood, time availability and financial position. It’s an all out leisure outing as guests gets to savour splendid food with heady cocktails and prolific mocktails in the backdrop of wide screens and multiple plasmas broadcasting live sports coverage. The Ziel House is a result of all my close observations of Delhi’s party scene. While the day time crowd at The Ziel House usually comprises the college students, the evenings comprise more of the corporate gentry, friends and couples. Besides the local crowd and the corporate sector, we are getting good response from tourists.”
“We will regularly organize happening events at our place to keep the Club House abuzz 365 days a year. We are keen to host film promotional events too at our place. Guests can expect highly pulsating events with the best DJs of town and their hip hopping music coupled with lip smacking cuisines exclusively prepared by our MasterChef Rakesh Thakur. Keeping in mind the penchants of the music lovers and party revelers, our resident and visiting DJs will offer all genres of music namely hard rock, metal, fusion and the soul stirring sufi music. The music will vary from electronic to house, mainstream and commercial Bollywood Nights, and from popular Hip Hop Nights to Salsa and Bachata. It’s overwhelming to hear The Ziel House being touted as the ‘Next big party destination in town’, or ‘The new phenomenon in town’. We have a conviction that our customers will not only pledge their future loyalty to us, but will also render a great service by referring our place to their closed ones, and to all the food connoisseurs. A dedicated team is readily accessible to help clients conceptualize and customize their events according to their themes and specifications. The Ziel House’s brand of entertainment will expand to other cities too, starting with more clubs in NCR.
