Delhi’s Luxury Boutique Hotel And Art Gallery For Gay Men Only
Mister And Art House

Public spaces in India often finds themselves at the mercy of morality, especially when it comes to expressing love. For the LGBTQ+ community, this scrutiny is, not only far greater, but also far more brutal. Safe spaces for the queer community where they can be themselves and celebrate their relationships are few, if not absent entirely, in India.

This is why Mister And Art House in Delhi, India’s first boutique hotel for ‘Men Only’, is a revolutionary venture, so far as tourism in India goes. A quiet building in one of the most upscale areas of the capital, it houses luxurious rooms with contemporary furnishing. The devil is in the details and at Mister And Art House, these include things like four-poster beds made in Burma teakwood, complete Italian marble floored bathrooms and personalised wine racks in each room. A unique concept, the hotel-cum-art-haven also houses antiques, sculptures and rare homo-erotic artwork (which was supported by Indian sages who penned down the history of homosexuality in age-old scriptures). Moreover everything on display from art work to their imposing furniture is also on sale.

While comfort in style is always welcome when on vacation, what makes this combination even more appealing is an added sense of complete abandon. Exclusively open to India’s gay community, Mister And Art House then becomes the perfect getaway for gay men in the country.
