Live Music & Cocktails In Candle Light? 52 Janpath Is Perfect For Dates

Navni posted on 26 October

Shortcut

52 Janpath is one of the few places in CP done up in an uber classy manner we’ve recently come across, complete with a drawing room, a faux fireplace and a candle-lit al fresco area furnished with plenty of mist fans and coolers in the summer.

Lowdown On The Ambience

When you’re entering, you have to go through a narrow white tunnel-like entrance till you come across a large wooden door, which wouldn’t be out of place at an old English tavern. You enter through a large drawing-room-like hall with a bunch of tables and chairs, as well as snug couches and a faux fireplace next to a large shelf full of books; the ideal place to unwind at during winter, perhaps with a cup of hot chocolate. However, for now, we’re calling dibs on the outside area; dimly lit {mostly only by candlelight}.

They also frequently play live music. However the day we went, they were playing hits {and misses} from the 90s.

Plate Night

We love their small plates section. To start with, we ordered the bacon wrapped asparagus possibly shone the brightest. Slender stalks of asparagus lightly doused in butter and wrapped in bacon rashers, and accompanied by a butter-based dip; winner. However, we were disappointed with the portions, which were barely enough for two. This can get confusing as the Korean Miso Honey Glazed Fish was enough for four people to munch on.

We also tried the Asian beef with garlic and Irish potato skins. The former was flavourful and reminiscent of the Tibetan shaptah. We really liked the potato skins, too, which were topped with a thick layer of cheese and jalapenos and served with salsa and sour cream; comfort food at its best.

Wash it down with a cocktail. We liked the Twisted Sweet Girl – a spunky combination of vanilla-spiced vodka, star anise and a solo piece of marshmallow {nom nom}.

So, We’re Saying…

We’re very happy that CP is moving on from the loud music and dingy spaces kind of scene, and we’re definitely going back to 52 soon for another drinking sesh. And maybe a plate of their ras malai with strawberries.
