The opening night started with a soulful saxophone dominated performance by Black Orpheous, followed by which the Bangladeshi sensation - James and his band took over the stage with English, Bangla and Hindi songs. Some of the Hindi songs he sang were 'Bheegi Bheegi', 'Alvida' and 'Chal Chale'. He enthralled his audience with the English cult numbers - U2's 'With or Without You' and Pink Floyd's 'Wish You Were Here'.

The opening saw many revelers partying till the wee hours of the night including Rashi and Gautam Bhimani, Ramola Bachchan, Pam and Sameer Mehta, artist Anju Kumar, DJ Barkha, Liza Verma, Julie Deb Pareek, Jenjum Gadi and many more. The directors of Rhino - JJ and JK felicitated the ghazal maestro Ustad Ghulam Ali who graced the opening with his presence.

With many years of experience in the hospitality industry, Executive Chef Prem Nath is perfectly aware of how to tickle your taste buds.

A concoction of good food, mood and music, Rhino, is a place with myriad experience. Talking about the music selection for the club, Mr. Jitender Janghu, Director, Rhino said, "We strongly believe that 'All music is beautiful'. The music at Rhino blends in and does not overwhelm the revelers. It rather provides enough space for sharing a thought or a conversation. Anyone and everyone who is deeply connected to music would love to visit Rhino for its vast variety. It's an amalgamation of different individuals finding their own unique world with different music experiences."

Inspired by the Rhino, the clubs philosophy, aesthetics and its identity was conceptualized byArfin Zukof, Project Partner, to evoke a feeling of earthy, raw solidity with a timeless appeal.

To this end, extensive use of natural materials was made, with minimal treatment to allow the innate character of the material speak for itself. A palette of wood, iron, copper and granite was juxtaposed with elegant touches of lighter materials like rope, fabric and screens to create interest. The ambience thus provides the right balance of stimuli and comfort.

Rhino is designed as an exciting journey through a volumetric play of spaces - the journey begins from the moment you step under the mammoth light feature which overlooks the dynamic double height area with a stage for live performances. This leads to an intimate single height area with the bar-overlooking the lush outdoors, and finally a relaxing outdoor dining area with one of the best views over the city. A single destination to cater to myriad moods....

According to Mr. Jitender Kumar, Director, Rhino, "One of the important facts about Rhino is that they are safe and customers do not have to worry about any unwanted incidences. The club is a haven for music, dance and socializing and offers a dance-floor, seating areas and an entertainment venue."

Creating its own identity and claiming a position at the forefront with its impeccable design sensibilities, RHINO is a place where all your music and gastronomic desires will be fulfilled. RHINO is all set to redefine 'evenings'!
