The Flying Elephant - Entertainment, Beverages , Dining and much more.....

Welcome to the Best Restaurant in Chennai

At sundown, the ante is upped and especially during the weekends, this space becomes one of the most popular night spots to be seen at.

Our In-house Flight Jockeys curate a whole spectrum of music genres from hip-hop, EDM, Commercial, jazz and desi. The Flying Elephant has gone to a different stratosphere -  music and entertainment are a distinctive reason for it to remain the top-notch party place in the city.

Discerning gourmands can start the evening with a special dinner comprising of modernist culinary delights from the various show kitchens. Cutting edge, contemporary cocktails from the Garden Bar with fruit infusions set the right note, and when the evening starts to get deep and sultry we recommend one of our special cocktails from the speak-easy selection to take things to a different dimension.

Wednesdays are Hip-Hop with some of our spectacular Flight Jockeys as they seamlessly veer from one genre to the other melding pulsating rock with EDM to setting the spirits soaring for a perfect crescendo on Saturdays with Bollywood Dance music.
