When Haveli Dharampura opened its doors earlier this year, it was after painstaking restoration work and careful detailing. What used to be a Mughal-style haveli was converted into a beautiful heritage hotel and restaurant, Lakhori.

Kathak performances, kite-flying battles and a stunning dining experience – Dilliwaalas and tourists made the trek to Haveli Dharampura {you actually have to walk the last stretch of the journey to make it to the property}.

There is also a brand new bar menu that includes some well-loved classic cocktails and an extensive wine list, but the star attractions are their Haveli Signature drinks. Steep in all of the culture and sip on the Dariba Narangi, a potent mix of Tequila, Triple Sec, Orange Juice and Grenadine. You can even enjoy the traditional Kathak shows {on the weekends} from the rooftop, now.

A meal at Haveli Dharampura requires a slight bit of foresight – just because they have so many different options. From Monday – Thursday {lunch and dinner} and lunch on Friday and Saturday, choose from their a la carte menu. There’s a special chef’s tasting menu on Friday, Saturday or Sunday and we’ve heard rave reviews.

We’re also quite excited about their Hi-Tea menu {a pre-decided menu with lots of chaat}, accompanied by a spot of kite-flying.

Reservations are highly recommended – the restaurant fills up pretty quickly as you can imagine.
