A significant brick in the building of The Urban Foundry was Meraki Hospitality – one of the hot and upcoming players in the F&B industry. Giving the initial momentum to the idea, were the minds of its three pioneering partners: Sangram Shirole, Suryabhan Shinde and Hrishikesh Shinde.

Meraki Hospitality and TUF envision furthering their exploration of the food industry through an elaborate experimentation of genres and concepts in their personal style of unblemished execution. They have a vision that has been eagerly anticipated and continue to reimagine the F&B industry with ideas that inspire.

The Urban Foundry is a modern, All-Day Bar and Eatery that has been created to radiate an industrial vibe. TUF has been conceptualized as a hangout that provides a rustic feel and foundry-esque ambience. Screaming ‘industrial design’ from ceiling to floor, we have filtered its concept into every aesthetic aspect. Every last detail has been tastefully accentuated to give you that industrious feel.

The idea was to set up a place that is designed in an urban way highlighting the industrious nature that can suit the modern post-work drinking and dining culture that is privileged indulgence. The menu boasts of comfort food to inspired food creations and a handcrafted cocktail menu that will have you in a tizzy, in the best sense of the word.

What sets The Urban Foundry apart is attention to every detail and dedicated execution with only one dream in mind – to create a thing of beauty – and after all, beauty is in the details

    Sangram, his family's 2nd generation to participate in the hospitality business. Having procured a PGD in International Hospitality Management from Les Roches, Bluche, Switzerland, he has been doing it the conventional way. Restaurants like Shabree, Sharvaree, and By The Way are the projects that he is a part of which have been pivotal in his journey so far. His old school and conventional approach is what has helped build the Foundry ground up. Being a graduate from hospitality his insight and professional approach towards the industry is his forte that plays an important role in blending the old school ways with the modern approach to match todays time and age.

    Suryabhan, from a 3rd generation business family, has completed his B. Tech. in Mechanical Engineering from BITS, Dubai and is a Post Graduate in Engineering Business Management from the University of Warwick, UK. In spite of a strong academic background, he always wanted to venture into the guild of fine and creative hospitality. Although with a technical background his contribution in the making of TUF was indeed crucial given his exposure to the 5 years he spent in Dubai and UK. Always inclined towards F&B, and being the youngest turk on board his approach towards the concept and implementation was a fresh take on building The Urban Foundry.

  • Hrishikesh Shinde Read more image03

    Hrishikesh, a Bachelor of Commerce, whose interest in restaurants, arose purely through an instant attraction that gravitated him to the industry. Coming from a 3rd generation business family and someone who’d not ventured in the hospitality business in the past, he found his passion after bringing the popular coffee bar brand Mocha to Pune and has been now in the hospitality business for over a decade now. Over the years, he has been associated with restaurants of unmatched popularity such as Stone Water Grill and Le Kebabiere. Both these restaurants have lived up to the hype that surrounded them, and are landmarks in the city’s fine social scene, with The Urban Foundry being the latest offering on the block.
