Champa Gali In Saket Is the Capital's Very Own Hidden Gem
What Makes It Awesome
Champa Gali, a capital hidden gem is situated in the quirky streets of Saidulajab. The spot offers a fine blend of cafes, art and culture. Right from sipping on one of the finest teas, to munching on great, organic stuff at Jugmug Thela, to the fine coffees from Blue Tokai to a sinful shopping spree at Jugaad—this location has it all. Also, there are a lot of events, like poetry evenings, music gigs, book launches and a lot more going on here. Champa Gali has handicraft shops, design studios, a reading room (inside Jugmug Thela) and an on-site roastery at Blue Tokai. The spot is an absolute pleasure to visit, read, and relax (also to write, if you want to). There is no alcohol served by any cafes here, but who needs one when you are already intoxicated by the street itself!
What Could Be Better?
Frankly, the ambience of the place makes up for whatever complaints can be made about this place. But you might want to skip driving and take the metro/auto/cab as parking is an issue. Plus, a few more chairs around the outlets would help a lot.
There are a lot of events that keep happening here. So, you might want to keep an eye on Champa Gali's official Facebook page. Don't forget to keep a shopping bag in hand. There are plenty of things worth checking out at Jugaad and Liberty Village.
