Every month, raise your cocktail, beer or shot glasses at a bar we recommend, and drink.

The Space: A massive seating area, plush leather sofas, a noir film reminiscent long bar {complete with leather high-chairs}, baroque chandeliers, and a terrace overlooking one of Delhi’s most iconic zip codes – Warehouse Café looks like a warehouse, after an extreme home makeover. The only detailing testament to its name are perhaps the bare-bricked walls, high ceilings, open ducts and industrial-inspired lighting {bordering on ambient}. An interesting mix of rustic and regal, Warehouse offers the standard fare of cocktails, shots, a multi-cuisine menu, live match screenings, loud music, and major human traffic. For the minimal conversationalist, the decibel level of the music indoors will provide a safe haven of sorts. For the conversations-over-cocktails supporters, the expansive terrace should be your choice of seating {PS – it overlooks the newly installed Indian Flag, Central Park, and CP’s crescent inner circle; all in all, an almost unbeatable view}.

Why it made our list? It has to be the energy it exudes! Although match screenings are a standard fixture, Warehouse comes alive during peak sports seasons, and should be at the top of your list for some major sport{ing} spirit and barely containable enthusiasm. If all the yelling isn’t as melodious as the music, there’s always that terrace…

What We’re Drinking: You can expect every IMFL and imported brand under the sun. Definitely try the LIT, Mai Tai {white rum and Amaretto, mixed with orange juice, pineapple juice, and grenadine, topped with dark rum}, and the unusual Bell Pepper Margarita {made with fresh bell pepper, lime juice and tequila}. If you’re part of a bigger party, the pitchers are great value for money; we recommend the Watermelon Supernova {vodka, fresh watermelon and crushed basil}, Psycho Jack {Jack Daniels, strawberry, and lemonade}, and the Faithful Bitch {vodka, tang, sour apple, lemonade and grenadine}.

LBBD Tip:  Happy hours, a sweet deal of 1+1 on IMFL and 2+1 on imported liquor, go as late as 8pm. The food menu has on it 365 options, one for every day of the year! The menu is designed like a calendar, where every item on the menu corresponds to a date. To give you a little incentive, if your order the dish listed on the 11th of April, on the 11th of April, you get a 50% discount on that particular dish!  Coordinating this might be tricky, but may the odds be ever in your favor. Reservation recommended.
