Delhi might not be quite as synonymous with glitz and glam as Mumbai—home to legions of Bollywood stars—but the history-packed Indian capital holds its own when it comes to nightlife. You’d be hard-pressed to find another city where old and new align so visibly, all across the city’s architecture and the restaurants and events that make up the unique local culture. After all, where else can you party next to the spooky, half-crumbling remains of fallen empires?
Across this metropolis of over 20 million people and counting, trend-setting bars and pubs sit comfortably next to centuries-old Tughlaq and Mughal monuments, while sleek hotels boast fashionably throwback lounges.
The stage is set for the perfect night out on the town—that is, if you know where to go. Want us to help out? Here are the best bars in Delhi.
