This restaurant in the village of the famous Hauz Khas has become popular since the time Delhi faced a sharp water crisis. When the tourist footfall started decreasing, the restaurant started pulling people back. As you reach the alley, it will be difficult for you to believe that such an awesome restaurant can be placed in a dingy lane. The lane has graffiti filled walls on both the sides and then you enter the beautiful two storey restaurant with an equally fantastic décor. The two things remarkable are the customer service on weekdays and the presentation of the food. The cutlery and utensils are incredibly stylish and the food is lip smacking too. They have a selected menu of drinks and food but all are tried and tested. Apart from just eating, you can also organize a formal meeting here with two laptops on a table along with the food. Yes! The space is just so cool. As the evening starts turning into a dark night, the party goers find their way in.

While the main street of the Hauz Khas Village is an amalgam of pubs, cafes, and designer labels, its rear is donned in gorgeous graffiti walls. The juxtaposition of capitalist ventures in the main lanes alongside the democratic expression of art in the by-lanes is truly a wonder to witness.

Hauz Khas Village - a village which has become one of the hot-spots of South Delhi. A village which retains its ethnic village charm, co-existing with pubs, loud music, drugs and hyper active hormones. I have recently started liking my visits to HKV ( as it's known ). I have a few favourite places to hang out on a nice, sunny winter afternoon to relax and catch up. I have visited HKV with friends and with my children and each time the experience has been different. Everyone who comes to Delhi, or is from Delhi will visit HKV, and here are a few tips I have learnt along my visits thereSoak in the character - it's a quaint experience to walk down the alleyways and narrow lanes. I, for one, am fascinated by haveli's, well's, and narrow paths leading somewhere unknown. Take time to soak in the character of the place, read the tombstones and find your own paths.Reach early to enjoy the village -Reaching early also helps you get parking easily, which as anyone who has been to HKV, can vouch for is a nightmare on weekends from late lunch time onward. Avoid the weekend nights - while we all have our moments of madness, where we want to be the wild party animals, Hauz Khas Village loses its charm for me in the night. An absolute nightmare to park, crowded lanes, waiting to be seated and a nightmare to exit, I would avoid it in the nights. Of course, it would be make for pleasant early summer evenings, though the traffic would be enough to put me off.Take the kids - my kids enjoyed walking though the village, and exploring the ruins. However, avoid taking the kids on Valentine's day or the day before Valentine's day. The village is known for couples high on hormones and drugs and it was a little tough to explain certain things to the kids.Food and drinks aplenty - all the known joints have a branch at the village. Food and alcohol is reasonable to suit all pockets. My personal favourites - Social Chhat ( terrace) for winter afternoon's - overlooking the reservoir, complete with cots, it's the perfect place for the winter afternoon with friends or family. Yes, it's a kid friendly place too. Nirula's ice cream parlour is right next to it - perfect for that hot chocolate fudge. And of course, Starbucks - make it a take away, walk down to the ruins and enjoy your cuppa in peace ... not bad, I say !!!!!!So go ahead, go down and enjoy a bit of the Old Delhi charm in the heart of South Delhi.
Hauz Khas: The words ‘Hauz' means “water tank” (or lake) and ‘Khas' is “royal” that gives the name “Royal tank”. The large water tank or reservoir was first built by Alauddin Khilji ‘s reign (1296–1316) to supply water to the newly built fort and city of Siri (the second city of Delhi). It was originally known as Hauz-i-Alai after Khilji. Firoz Shah Tughlaq (1351–88) re–excavated the silted tank and cleared the clogged inlet channels. Several buildings like Mosque , madrasa and tombs were built overlooking the tank . Firoz Shah's tomb pivots the L–shaped building complex which overlooks the tank.
So we went hopping to this place in late evening on the eve of Holi night and ofcourse India vs zimbabwe cricket match! The vibrant vibe of this place and a street full of happening places, you just get confused on where to go? We hopped on to many places in single night like Moonshine, Levels, Out of the Box, Raasta, Socials etc. and when we got a dance floor at Get High, the police came in and stopped the party by 12am!! Still, we loved hopping the places!
The Hauz Khas Village is the urban market and probably the most 'happening' places of Delhi, as described by youngsters. With its antique shops, cool cafes, restaurants and bars, it is a must visit for all the art lovers and people who want to spend some leisurely time with freinds.
Hauz Khas Fort is the most sought after place for youngsters and couples in the capital city. The fort is now the ruins of a water tank, tombs and a madrasa built during the reign of Firoz Shah Tughlaq. It is still an architectural marvel and attracts thousands of tourists throughout the year.

Chic, urbane and serene.. Favorite hangout in Delhi
Sunset at Hauz Khas village By the time I finished my lunch it was 4 in the evening and so I asked my friend if he was in for going to the Hauz Khas fort and thankfully he got ready . Hauz Khas fort along with its peaceful lake view sometimes makes it hard to believe that this place is in Delhi, where there is always so much hustle and bustle. So as we reached there I grabbed on to my favorite spot in the fort , from where you can see the whole lake and enjoyed the sunset with a nice drink. The lake with old trees growing out of it, along with the deer park in the background and the historical setting of the fort like always made it a perfect sunset view.
