In this week's edition of Young Turks, CNBC-TV18 speaks to Gautam Aurora, a 35 year-old, former chartered accountant who quit his job in 2008 to start a cafe as comfortable as a living room.
Since inception, The Living Room (TLR) has positioned itself as a cafe with a difference. The cafe offers young musicians to play and showcase their talent.
Aurora: I was working for EMI Music in the UK and I quit my job one day to travel. On the road, I dreamed of excelling in the music industry. The inspiration to open a cafe offering live music came one day when I was in Hauz Khas Village and couldn’t find a coffee shop.
The Living Room clocked a gross revenues of Rs 2.5 crore, and major chunk of its revenues comes from the food and beverage (F&B) operations and the rest from the events it organises.
Though getting licences and permits wa an uphill task, Gautam managed to overcome all hurdles to realise his dream. Heady with success, Gautam now plans to launch a restaurant with a private cinema called Iron Curtain, in Hauz Khas Village.
