Founded in 2010 by Prashant, an immigrant turned DJ, & like-minded friends, jai ho! Is a celebration of Indian music & dance like no other.

Guidelines at every jai ho!
Creating a safe & celebratory space is our priority at every event we host.

We would love for you to be an accomplice of ours by greeting & treating everyone you meet like you would like to be treated, with equality, mutual respect, and a big smile. We know this does not apply to you because you are awesome but for the other people to whom this may be relevant, we have zero tolerance for bigotry, racist remarks, and generally reckless behavior.

Throughout the night, Punjabi, Bollywood, and south Indian songs, and music from across south Asia (new & old) will make their way into our DJs playlist. To contribute positively, uplift everyone around you, tip your bartenders well, and enjoy the music being played.
