Old City club changes hands

Jalsa is now Tantra.

Old City club changes hands

0 comments

Jalsa - a little-noticed Indian restaurant-slash-club that opened last spring at 246 Market St. in Old City (the former Prive and Bluezette) - has given way to Tantra Luxe Lounge.

Jalsa front man Kayur Popat told me that he yielded control of the restaurant while he recovers from an illness. In the meantime, his partners are emphasizing the lounge - which looks out over Market Street behind a fanciful metal grill - and have installed a bar-food menu.

They're moving the ground-floor kitchen to the basement, which should address issues with the space's layout.

Quite a scene going on there - what with this and Fire & Ice newly open on the next block...
