If color had a home, Jaipur would be it. Known as the Pink City, Jaipur attracts millions of travellers from all around the world, all flocking to see its fairy-tale landscape of colours, architecture and culture. The dominant pink colour is not a coincidence, since it was designed to be in pink, as the colour symbolises hospitality. The city is an unique mixture of Indian culture and modern experience. Jaipur’s rich heritage is complemented by a vivid gastronomic culture, with numerous restaurants, bars and cafes lining the streets. Here we explore the best bars in India’s Pink City.

Aza

Aza is a luxurious classic library bar located at the Fairmont Hotel. The bar is decorated in the style of an emperor’s hunting lodge; everything from the books and sofa sets to the tiny windows and door have been royally designed. The Aza bar is divided into a cigar room, a whiskey bar, a large regular bar and an area for outdoor drinking. What also makes the Aza stand out from the rest of the crowd is the grand wine cellar which they take pride in, offering a delicious selection of local and international wines.

Bar Palladio

Bar Palladio at the Narain Niwas Palace is a treat for the eyes. The interior was designed by Marie-Anne Oudejans, the creator of the design brand Tocca. Turquoise and white are the only combination of colours used, with traditional Indian motifs in Mughal style on every corner of the hotel; on the walls, on the pillows, on the vase; resulting in a fresh yet regal atmosphere. Bar Palladio effortlessly exudes royalty and charm. The bar also offers a range of unique, refreshing drinks, making Bar Palladio the perfect place for a relaxed yet sophisticate evening.

Blackout

If you’re looking for a bar that has it all; atmosphere, music, drinks, food; then Blackout is the place to come. A beautiful contemporary bar with extravagant windows and an open rooftop which showcase scenic views of Jaipur, Blackout is a perfect place to take in the beauty of the city with a drink in hand. The soft ambiance and comfortable seating make the bar ideal to visit on weekdays, while regular club nights are a great weekend release. Order one of their many delicious cocktails or bottled beers, along with some snacks, and enjoy the astounding views.

Colorbar

Colorbar certainly lives up to its name, and is one of the most mesmerising bars in the city. The most iconic aspect of the bar is the LED-lighted seats that change color, creating a kaleidoscope of colors and lights throughout. The Miami-style rooftop and poolside also help to create an upbeat, trendy atmosphere. Located close to the airport, Colorbar is a perfect place to relax with a cocktail in hand while watching the planes come and go against a beautiful sunset sky.

Grunge

Grunge was awarded the Best Nightclub in Jaipur 2015 by the Times of India. The interior of Grunge is decorated in purples, pinks and blacks, giving it an underground, edgy look . The live band on the Wednesdays and Fridays draw in a large crowd, lending a fun, cheerful atmosphere to the edginess. Great food, drinks and music are the mission behind Grunge, and this bar certainly delivers.

Replay

‘Sorry, no wifi, talk to each other’, is written on one of the walls of Replay, epitomising the bar’s ethos about socialising and fun. Replay bar has a home like feel to it: the tiny green and yellow windows and the little seating chamber covered with sheer curtains accompanied by dim-lit chandeliers, sets just the right tone for socializing and chatting. ‘EAT. DRINK. PLAY’ is their motto. Located on the outskirts of Jaipur, Replay is the perfect place to stop off after a long day’s rummaging at the various markets in the area.

Sheesh Mahal

Established in the heart of the Pink City, Sheesh Mahal is the envy of the town. With a centrally placed bar with a golden spotlight on it, the eye is immediately drawn to the bar area upon entering. The interior is inspired by the Rajputana Palace hall of the mirror. The bar is embedded with small mirrors in the curtains, on the walls, on the seating, reflecting one of the distinct features of the Rajputana fashion. Sheesh Mahal bar is an extension of the ITC Rajputana Hotel, and is a great place for an elegant evening drink.

Steam

Steam is a unique bar extraordinarily located inside an actual steam engine (Shikhar Train carriage). The decor radiates grandiose and high-class with a distinct Victorian style. The food is served inside the train as well as on the platform. Inside the steam engine are diwan seats (low floored seats), in the manner in which kings and higher officials sat during the period before the Independence of India, adding a touch of history and culture.
