Sanketham provides the ideal ambience for a journalist to unwind. Anything from politics to trivia is discussed and delineated in its true spirit… extolling the joys of drinking in peer group.
Located in the cellar of the Press Club building with a small doorway and a subtle sign indicating its presence, Sanketham strives to retain its community atmosphere. With its penchant for light banter and an equal obsession with political and social developments, it provides the intellectual stimulus for the capital’s journalists.
And of course, there are those who come for their afternoon siesta…
The recreational centre is not a commercial establishment and is strictly for members. Those engaged in creative arts also drop in at times to share their thoughts.

The Sanketham is open to members from 12 noon to 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 11 p.m.
