7 Rooftop Bars That Are Perfect To Enjoy Delhi's Stunning Winter


Tripoto.com

Cocktails shouldn’t taste better as the altitude in increases, but somehow I think they do – especially when that extra height inspires even the most anti-social, couch-loving person to show their fun moves on the dance floor. So, this weekend as the sun begins to set and the temperature drops, head up to one of these bars to experience Delhi from its best angle – with a drink in hand.

Ten-second takeaway : After 4 years of constant renovation work, the Haveli Dharampura has again come to life. Lakhori, the rooftop restaurant offers a stellar view of the Jama Masjid, the Gurudwara Sis Ganj, Lal Mandir and of course, the Red Fort.

Lay back and enjoy watching children fly colourful kites or indulge in games of kabootarbaazi.

I really hope you visit this gateway to all the wonders of Old Delhi, as it is guaranteed to transport you to a different world where the bustle of the city seems far from reality.

Ten-second takeaway : Up above the world so high, like a diamond in the SKY!

Unless you are immensely afraid of heights, I strongly recommend you to visit the SKY - Lounge Bar & Grill. The rooftop is the crowning glory. You’ll feel like the queen/king of the castle under the ropes of pearl bulbs.

Along with this, Sky features unmatched food and beverage offerings, with cuisine that celebrates the numerous millennia and dynasties of the city, an extensive bar menu featuring an eclectic selection of whiskies, wines, champagnes etc.

Ten-second takeaway : The first floor of Kylin Premier, Kylin Sky Bar is known for its ambience and its music. Candles, white lilies, plush sofas and a great wait staff make up for the high prices of this rooftop bar. It’s an ideal vantage point for watching sunsets while lingering over a red sangria.

Ten-second takeaway : A bar facing the lake; the Hauz Khas version of this place does a fabulous job of making the lake part of the earthy ambience. The unobstructed view of the lake is nothing short of spectacular – on a clear day you can see the Deer Park area and by night the twinkling lights from buildings below look like a carpet of stars rolled out beneath you.
