Newly Opened Bars To Get The Party Started.

What are weekends without a few too many drinks. Delhi has a bunch of exciting new places and here are some of the top picks to get the party started.

1. Social, Nehru Place

The newly-opened Social in Nehru Place recently made headlines when it sold its signature drinks for Rs 19 (because Nehru Place pincode is 110019). May 25 and 26 were packed beyond imagination, and the energy has transferred on to the weekend.

So hop onto the metro and have your favourite LIIT at a different location with the same vibe.

Where: R1, First Floor, Epicuria Food Mall, Nehru Place

Nearest Metro Station: Nehru Place (Violet Line)

Contact: +91 7838009986

Timings: 11am – 1am

2. HotMess, Connaught Place

With places opening and shutting down every week, it is hard to find the buzz. HotMess is an exception. Within days of opening, it was flooded with first timers who fell in love with the great food and the unique cocktails it offered.

Top recommendations are Aphrodisiac, Imli Patola, One For The Road and Dam Dam Do.

3. Teddy Boy, Connaught Place

Inspired by the British sub-culture of the 1950's, Teddy Boy has a dim lit ambiance with pictures of Dandy-styled men (eg. Alex Turner) on their menu. The place is light on the pocket and a good option if you want to go cheap but not to My Bar. Their Banta mocktails have made quite the wave in Delhi.

Junkyard Cafe already has a reputation, and this new branch doesn't disappoint either. In cocktails, definitely check out the Metal Bender and Bourbon Wreckage Fluid.
