India’s capital is abuzz with lounge bars, nightspots, cafés and speakeasies, and Delhiites love partying and meeting friends after a hard day of work. Here’s a list of cool hangouts and cozy coffeebars near Khan Market that you can choose from on your next visit to the city.
Anidra Bar is the perfect place to experience New Delhi’s dazzling nightlife, as it is open 24/7 and has a great restaurant as well as a cocktail bar area. Dark velvet booths are surrounded by an eclectic decor and graffiti covered walls, plus a wide range of music makes for a great night. The cocktails, which boast flashy names like Lady in Red or Passion Fruit Mojito, complete the experience.
Café Turtle is loved by both young professionals and adventurous travelers. Many of them come here to work in the peaceful and lively space, or to read a book from the café’s private library. It is an artsy place for coffee lovers and bibliophiles. Not to be missed are Café Turtle’s fresh juices, which are wonderfully refreshing after a long day of sightseeing.
Lutyens Cocktail House
This venue is a hotspot for cocktail lovers with a weak spot for luxury. Lutyens Cocktail House, paying homage to Delhi’s chief architect Edward Lutyens, drips with grandeur and class. Plush leather sofas, beautiful lighting, and the shelves with old books and cigars give the place the atmosphere of an old-English, stately manor. It offers a head-spinning mix of cocktails and is the ideal spot to socialize with strangers at the bar or grab a drink with friends.
The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf
The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf is a coffee bar where you can enjoy some good food as well. This is the right place for a quick bite, an Indian masala wrap or a nicely made pesto pasta, followed by one of their delicious iced coffees with a piece of their chocolate fudge cake. With its beautiful old-fashioned floor tiles, the comfy seats and calm atmosphere, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf is perfect to take a break from your Delhi shopping spree.
The Big Chill Café
The retro look of the Big Chill Café attracts a very eclectic crowd. Serving nice food but perfect for just getting drinks with friends as well, this place radiates friendship, ambiance and charm. On top of that, the Big Chill has the best milkshakes in town and a stunning array of desserts and pies. The Mississippi Mud Pie is not to be missed.
The Market Café is equal parts bar, diner and workplace, located on the second floor of a spacious, bright building overlooking the bustling street below. For a decent morning breakfast gossiping with friends or an evening barbecue with pals on the rooftop terrace, you’ve got to be at the Market Café. The cocktails and smoothies are particularly recommended.
An oasis of tranquility in the midst of buzzing, chaotic Delhi, Latitude 28 has been awarded best bar in the city. The bright but calming colors and the cozy terrace make visitors take a slow, deep breath in order to adapt to the peace and quiet. Visitors can grab a delicious bite to eat here, while also enjoying a cocktail or three from the well-stocked bar.
