From an upscale event at the upscale international club, luxury hotel and fine dining restaurant that will be a secret, Delhi’s nightlife scene is a turning point. Cities are more subdued as the sun goes down.
If you are looking to party at night when you are in India, you have come to the right city: the best clubs in Delhi, the values in a post that you will not soon forget.
Night clubs of Delhi
With locations in London, Dubai, Mykonos and São Paulo, toy room arriving in Delhi, has already gained prominence throughout the city. Looking up at the Frank Frankfurt-based barber to hit the cover-up with R&B, people will love the beautiful setting: the wall-covered walls are pictures. Musicians like Biggie and Prince. The night here is nothing short of spectacular.
This latter (wild) place has been a favorite since its start in 2011. Opening nightly, Kitty Su is home to the makers, the lounge, the A- listing with the main club. With branches across the country, Delhi’s Kitty Su remains the nation’s premier destination.
For about a decade, this antique watch is found at the foot of the DLF Promenade Mall. At 11 pm, the area becomes a spontaneous dance floor where the DJ can always cover all genres of music at night. Almost always at full capacity, we suggest arriving early.
Pass Code Only
A hidden environment in a quiet market is the epitome of a classic underground party scene. Enjoy signature cocktails while watching Frank Sinatra on the first floor (don’t miss the hidden cigar lounge) or head down to the basement decorated with seating and hardwood floors and dance to the top 40 old tracks while the DJ plays from a barrel-balanced laptop of turned wine. You will need to enter an access code (it changes a few times a week and is sent to a private list of people), so you should ask before planning a visit.
This is an interesting concept: it is a daytime workspace and café that turns into a bar and lounge at night. Bar, stroll Hauz Khas Village and end your night here, a favorite party destination on weekends and Wednesday nights. The whole space turns into one big party, hosting underground band shows and more: no one makes better hipster parties.
The Electric Room
Nestled in the elegant Lodhi Hotel with a super solid sound system, this venue is open until late in the morning and the party atmosphere is a hard core. The neon-lit club plays the center stage of some weekend live shows before turning into a rave party all night long: expect a techno song teetering between popular pop and even Bollywood picks.
Buzzing any night of the week, this rooftop patio and bar stands out among a multitude of venues around the corner in Hauz Khas village. A super laid back, laid back, “summer home” vibe: you can sit in the middle and dance or rock the music while sitting at a table admiring the view of the city from the beautiful terrace. Fun fact: Coldplay’s Chris Martin did an impromptu show here on a trip to Delhi in 2015.
This members-only club has a super kind of elegance in its decorating strategy. Perched at the Hyatt Regency Hotel, facing the panoramic pool view, this venue is open late into the night and usually hosts a lively after-party dance on the weekends. It’s totally worth the effort to find a member and follow up, trust me.
Priveé is right in the middle of Delhi and regularly hosts high level events and artists. Decorated with LED lights, a huge dance floor, a state-of-the-art sound system and VIP lounges, the club is open late. Pro Tip: Arrive before 11pm to avoid paying a coverage fee.
Fio Cookhouse & Bar
Located in the lively Epicuria food mall, this is a great place for a delicious Mediterranean meal. The restaurant turns into an after-dinner dinner – the kind where tables are cleared to make room for an incredible dance floor. Perched above a winding staircase, the guest DJs play their sets, and often the party also extends to the outdoor seating area.
