Creative look, feel and dressing details for Dishoom's new café in Manchester.
Opening in Manchester Hall, the 1920s building originally used as a Freemasons’ Hall, the 7th and most eagerly awaited café in the Dishoom family needed to pay loving homage to the old Irani cafés of Bombay as well as the Freemason ties between Manchester and Bombay.
All details throughout the café were considered - from the hand-painted signs, through to the custom clock face. The Permit Room bar also had a full menu created, as well as a bespoke typeface (inspired by the carved lettering found in the Bombay Freemason Hall) for all further communications.
