What You Should Know More About Nightlife in Delhi
Having read all this, it might not surprise you that there are a number of places you can hog in throughout the night in Delhi. Street food rules the night out places in Delhi since other fine dining restaurants serve only till about 12.30-01.00am. Places like In & Out in defence colony, The Electric Room at Lodhi Road, 24/7 Restaurant at Connaught Place, RBG Bar and Grill at Lajpat Nagar 4, Gatsby Kitchen & Bar By Club, and Blooms at Nehru place are the best sit out restaurants that run through the night. But if you are in adoration of the night air, then Ganga Dhaba at JNU, Moolchand Paranthe at Lajpat Nagar 4 and Mukesh Dhaba at Gurgaon are some of the best open space dhabas to hog on delicious ‘desi’ food
If you cannot wait to shake a leg, then you have to be at the best club in Delhi to make it a night to hark back to. Here’s a catch up of the most famous clubs in Delhi. Agni in The Park Hotel is most famed for its glamour booze and dance nights. Take-off to F Bar and Lounge if you cannot leave food out of your party nights. And if you are looking for superb experimental cocktails then Shroom Night Club is your answer. Except these, clubs like Keya, Lap, Hype, Kitty Su, TGI Fridays, We2Pub and Zest are amongst the best clubs to set foot into the party nightlife in Delhi.
If you are wandering about the streets of Delhi then the light and sound show at the Red Fort is not worth a miss under any circumstance. While you are driving around, meander into the area where there is the majestic Qutub Minar, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is equally appealing as the Red Fort and India Gate at night. You do not want to sleep hungry after a night long party; why not head to Pandara road and have a plethora of budgeted things to eat? You might not have heard of a night safari in India, but here is the record breaker moment; the night safari at Sanjay Van at Qila Lal Kot Walls is an exceptional adventurous and trek site. If you keep your eyes open, then you might get the chance to witness a lovely play at the National School of Drama
Just as the day descends, the crowd in the shopping area augments; therefore you should plan your day well if you want to go on a shopping spree. There aren’t any markets open throughout the night in Delhi but Connaught Place and Chandni Chowk are exceptions that welcome shoppers till late in the night. Other local markets like Greater Kailash, Karol Bagh Market, Central Market, Sarojini Market, Khan Market and Dilli Haat close anytime between 8.00pm to 10.00pm
India Gate at night looks like a flood of lights offering a pictorial view and relaxing time to tired souls. A night visit to India Gate is one of the favourite night out places in Delhi. This memorial dedicated to our heroes witnesses a lot of crowds starting from sunset till late in the night. Families, couples, and friends spend quality time with one another at the garden area that overlooks the night and shining India Gate. Roadside food vendors are your answer to midnight cravings. This is also a beautiful spot for clicking a memorable picture, either on your smartphone or by a local photographer who will give you a print in a jiffy
Without a doubt, India Gate is hands down the best place to visit with your family if you want to be a part of the nightlife in Delhi. The dhabas are crowded enough making it safe for a family visit, so that is yet another great option. There are light and sounds shows conducted at the Purana Qila and Ref Fort that run till 10.00 pm; a long drive and an ice-cream after shall make the night a perfect one! Select Citywalk mall is open till 11 pm thus keeping another choice open for you. Look out for advertisements of local exhibitions to spend time with your family in the late evenings. Fancy dinners and a weekend night movie don’t seem like a bad option either.
The bus system of Delhi has seen a gradual development in the past few years. In addition to that, the number of routes has widened with special services in some particular areas. With a frequency of about one bus within every five odd minutes to more, you can opt to travel by buses in Delhi from 5.30am to 11.00pm. Several routes have been added that can take you at least to the nearest metro station.
Mostly called HKV, this is one of the most delightful places to enjoy amongst other night out places in Delhi. What the crowd loves the most is the fact that there are no cars screaming for space; there are posh narrow long streets after street and you can do is walk! These streets have everything to make your night a worthy one. Be it terrace restaurants, live music, karaoke cafes, booze cafes or the most trendy party places, it is all happening here in HKV. You name a cuisine, and bam, you find it; there is nothing that is not accessible here. What is all the more remarkable is that it has a plethora of budget food options that won’t burn a hole in your pockets. You can sit by the lake in HKV and enjoy the cool breeze and the calm ambience. There are a number of theme-based shops that are entertaining and an excellent background for your next set of social media uploads.
Personal transport is highly recommended if you want to enjoy the nightlife in Delhi. Although, if you have curfew timings, then you might be able to catch the last few metros that run between 11.30pm to 12.00am. Sadly, there are no trains beyond that and you are on your own after and before these hours. Yet, you can opt for private cabs or autos if you want to stay beyond 12.00am. If you have stayed out the entire night, then you can take the metro home that starts between 5.30am to 6.00am based on the routes
Apart from the eateries revealed above, you will find yourself confused between many more restaurants to pick from to satiate your midnight hunger. The newly inaugurated Café Tansen has pulled a lot of crowd for late-night eaters with a superb music theme. If you want to have a game night, enjoy exotic ice creams and get delicious food all at one place then Glued Reloaded might interest you. Maal Gaadi serves yummy Mughlai Food till 04.00am that is not so expensive either. Just as the name suggests, Midnight Sutra shall keep your tummy filled till 05.00am. Biryani anyone? You should visit Sardarji Biryani wale that is open 24 hours! The Jungle Café keeps its doors open till as long as you want while they serve you with the best food, sheesha and alcohol.
Of course, yes! There are many nights tours conducted in Delhi by more than a few private organisations that last as long as six hours starting from 2 hours. A tour of the Akshardham temple with an all-inclusive package of food and the musical show is opted by many. Apart from that, there are several other tours that take visitors through some of the best tourist spots in Delhi that allure people throughout the dark hours. Some of these tours are planned in Old Delhi to walk people through the historical side of the city. Walks in Shahajanabad are still considered amongst the most quixotic tours in Delhi
