Dilli Diaries: 6 Party Destinations That Are Not Hauz Khas Village


Come weekend and Delhi whips out its fancy cars and cab-hailing apps to head over to THE party destination – Hauz Khas Village. The place has everything from pocket-friendly bars to fancy terrace restaurants (some of which have a breathtaking view of the Hauz Khas Fort, by the way). But that is probably why everybody ends up here wasting an hour to get parking only to hop around like a pogo stick amidst a sea of people. This weekend, skip the waiting time and party at these destinations instead!
