The Saturday Club was abuzz on September 1 as SatC Residency got a facelift with a row of swanky rooms being unveiled on the first floor of the Wood Street club. Eight premium rooms have been refurbished with modern fittings, and are equipped with smart TVs, free Wi-Fi and an outsourced housekeeping service. 

As you enter the lobby of SatC Residency, a muted decor of black, charcoal, white and yellow greets you. 
 

One of the walls has a sketch of the Howrah bridge, Victoria Memorial, a tram, a hand-pulled rickshaw and dinghies; a collage of photographs, clicked around the city by former club president Rajen Sood, is the highlight on another. Other decor elements include a couple of wooden rickshaw wheels, paintings from the club’s collection and filament bulbs. 

The rooms — with options of a double bed or twin beds — are modern in decor. Fitted with wide sliding Fenesta windows, 47-inch smart television sets, mood lighting and filament bulbs, they have everything that a modern traveller would need. There’s a separate seating area and a study table in all the rooms.

The attached washrooms in each room have also been kept modern and utilitarian with Kohler fittings, backlit mirrors and rain-shower cubicles. 

“The Saturday Club is located in the heart of the city and therefore, we always had a demand for premium rooms. So, we decided to renovate them. Work started in April and the first level with eight rooms are ready,” said Samir Desai, the House Maintenance & Projects convener of the club.
