Bijur had co-founded 'Door No.1' -- one of the popular retro bar in the city -- in 2016 along with his brother-in-law Vishesh Khanna.
Under his ownership, Door became the first-ever retro bar in India to launch its own musical band, Pratham, in 2018. The restaurant also hosted its Human Jukebox nights (held on Wednesdays), which grew highly popular among the city's youths.
