Auro Kitchen and Bar
Set in the busy Aurobindo Market in South Delhi, Auro’s third-floor walk-up bar might be daunting, especially if you’re in heels, but this terrace venue is worth the stairs. “It has one of the city’s better sound systems, a dedicated dance floor and a space for mingling,” says Gopal. “The venue also sees the occasional dope Berlin DJ come through.” Beloved by Delhiites for its location – Aurobindo Market is an easy place to meet, no matter which part of the city you’re coming from – Auro is almost always crowded, so be prepared to stand and have to struggle to get a drink at the bar. Once you’re here, order a cucumber and elderflower spritzer (white wine and soda with elderflower syrup and cucumber) to keep you hydrated and happy.
