Tuk Tuk Microbrewery and Taqueria, falls under the Leeu Collection of boutique hotels. The interiors with vaulted ceilings, exposed brickwork and sandblasted walls, combined with the copper clad bar and furniture made from steel pipes and grey washed European Oak continues the industrial feel. The beer bottle chandeliers were specially designed and commissioned for the project and these, together with Hoi P'Loy lights create an inviting and welcoming space.
Copper basins, taps and stainless steel service pipes running overhead mirror the two large copper brewing kettles and stainless steel Microbrewery where customers can sit and watch fine craft beer being expertly brewed.
Artwork and murals, depicting Tuk Tuk street scenes, painted by eminent Indian artist Siraj Saxena add an element of fun to the overall design.
