Delhi is getting hotter by the day, so if you’re looking to enjoy the outdoors on that occasional pleasant evening, these rooftop restaurants in Gurgaon are meant for you. As an added respite, they all come equipped with mist fans or coolers, so that you don’t end up melting into a puddle.
#LBBPicks: The Best Of Outdoor & Rooftop Restaurants In Gurgaon
Terrace, Indian Grill Room
Head over to Terrace for cocktails and canapés desi style. Although we’d recommend going on a cold night to enjoy their delicious kebabs right off the charcoal, their rooftop views aint too bad August onwards.
Threesixtyone, The Oberoi
If there’s one thing you should do outdoors this season, it’s grabbing a table on this deck, barely inches above the shimmering expanse of a mashaal-lit blue pool. As an added bonus, the food’s pretty great too.
Roots—Cafe in the Park
Gravel under your feet, a bunch of trees between brick tables and benches, and a wooden fence make for a bucolic setting. A pleasant outdoor space, with ample room for a large lunch group, makes Roots our favourite spot on this list.
The outdoor section of one of Gurgaon’s newest microbreweries features a faux-graffiti wall, which we guess is an ode to the beer motherland—Germany.
Cafe Red Kitchen Garden
Having started as a tiny outlet in Shahpur Jat, Cafe Red recently opened shop in Gurgaon’s DLF Phase 4. There’s plenty of greenery around, so make sure you visit when the weather is pleasant to make the most of it.
Vibe - The Sky Bar
With unique cocktails, delicious snacks and one hell of a view, Vibe–The Sky Bar is a great post-work or evening hangout spot. Situated on the 10th floor of The Hilton, Vibe has a stunning space, with lots of artificial grass and smooth wood-panelled floors to complete the decor. Don’t forget to pair all of that with their fun Bubblegum cocktail.
Downtown—Diners and Living Beer Cafe
Though the indoor space is a nice space to relax in itself, Downtown has a rather cosy rooftop with a microbrewery as well. With white umbrellas, high chairs and round tables accompanied by a view overlooking the market, there aren’t many ways you could go wrong with this one.
The outdoor is section is absolutely gorgeous with picnic benches and all-green surroundings (bring your date here). Try their pizzas and the soya garlic chaap and your taste buds will thank you.
I-Kandy, Le Meridien Hotel
With the bright neon signage and lit torches surrounding the pool, you’d think you’re in Ibiza. The bar nibbles here are enough to keep you going back and their collection of alcohol makes everything better.
Since Cyber Hub opened its doors, Gurgaon has never been the same. We love it for its slew of restaurants spilling out on to the main boulevard (the sprawling terraces for a few of them are amazing). Take your pick from SodaBottleOpenerwala, Wine Company, Pier 38, Beer Cafe, Sutra, Raasta, Soi 7 and Imperfecto.
