You will prepare a range of everyday Indian dishes from Chicken Tikka Masala to Indian Deserts.

In this, hands on class she will guide you through a range of delicious modern and traditional Indian classics.

This cookery classes represents her take on Modern Indian Cuisine, prepared using fresh flavorful ingredients, designed to accommodate the modern lifestyle. Indian cooking is often perceived as intimidating due to the use of wide range of unusual ingredients and complex cooking procedures however, Sharnita K Athwal's lessons are an attempt to recreate classic Indian dishes by using simplistic techniques along with a delicious juxtaposition of non-Indian ingredients. She has strived to bring traditional Indian cuisine to simplified levels fit for modern living and entertaining, while keeping the flavors and authenticity intact.

Pictures of the Venue

Fantastic new food launched

THE HOCKLEY BAR & KITCHEN in the Jewellery Quarter is a casual yet cosmopolitan restaurant, and late night lounge bar.

The venue also has a wonderful bar lounge area, which is a relaxed space ideal for quick lunches, informal dining, after-work drinks or pre-dinner aperitifs.

The Hockley is open all day and night, and is completely Free Entry to the Bar & Lounge (PINK ROOM). The Back Space (BLACK ROOM) will hold special events from 10pm-late on weekends.


The Hockley Kitchen & Bar:
Rising above the fusion fray, The Hockley sets the standard for east-meets-west cuisine with a transcendent drinks menu, that more than lives up to the buzz.

For global travellers with a cultural palate and a love of variety, the Hockley Bar & Kitchen in the Jewellery Quarter, combines elements of modern contemporary food with an multi-ethnic influence in a high energy, yet relaxed welcoming space.

Indulge in our extensive range of global wines or nibble on some mouth watering bites from Spicy Kebab Burgers, to Saffron Sautéed Wild Mushrooms, Chilli, Garlic and Tomato Puree with Ginger Polenta. If you fancy something a bit more traditional the Hockley Chicken Curry or Slow Braised Punjabi Lamb Biryani with Mint Raita Drizzle are also served, but with a slightly modern twist.
Opening Times: 12.00pm to 2.30pm

We’re also open from 9.30am to 8.00pm between Mon-Wed as the Bar and Restaurant remains open between lunch to allow for meetings, coffees, cakes and nibbles available.

We’re opened all day and night, and it’s completely FREE ENTRY to the Bar & Lounge while the Club Space will hold special events from 10pm-late on weekends.

Birmingham's freshest late night Lounge and Bar is free all night (on Thursday to Sunday) and here to overtake the city's lack lustre scene and totally re-create a positive and inclusive atmosphere full of music lovers, a clued up crowd and people who enjoy a damn good party.
