Delhi for years has been way behind the rest of the world when it came to night life,
this is now changing as more delhites start to earn more money. Whatever you want
to do, Delhi is sure to have it.
Below is a selection of bars, clubs & live music venues.
Anyone who has been to Delhi returns to tell stories about the Rodeo bar, A-Block,
Connaught Circus, because of its Indian waiters dressed as cowboys and mock saddle
seats at the bar. Saqi in Hotel Alka and Maikada in Hotel Marina (both G-Block, Connaught
Circus) each boast an outside terrace where you can sit with a drink in the cool
of the evening.
The Maurya Sheraton, Diplomatic Enclave, has a lively bar behind the lobby of the
hotel with a
golfing theme and Henri's at the top of the Meridien Hotel, Windsor Place,offers
a fine panorama of the city.
The celebrated Cavalry Bar in the Oberoi Maidan Hotel, Civil Lines, is a relic of
the Raj and
will appeal to those who like bars to be simple yet smart. In Hauz Khas Village,
a good location for deer-spotting is the rooftop of Park Baluchi, inside the Deer
while Vasant Vihar has TGI Fridays - very popular with hip young Delhiites and Golden
Dragon (C-Block, Market).

hotels and many of them operate a couples-only policy as well as a dress code.
The most popular are CJ's at Le Meridien, Windsor Place, while Some Place Else at
The Park, 15 Parliament Street, appeals to the local crowd with its English pub-style
aspirations.Oasis, at the Hyatt Regency, Bhikaiji Cama Place, is quite lively in
