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.
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 while you fight the chill in the air with their collection of alcohol.
Head over to Terrace for cocktails and canapés desi style, though we’d recommend going on a cold night to enjoy their delicious kebabs right off the charcoal.
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 mashaal-lit blue pool. As an added bonus, the food’s pretty great too.
Tibetan, Ladakhi and Nepalese staples are perfect for when we want some warm TLC, and this open air restaurant hits all the right spots.
Gravel at 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 a favourite on our 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.
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.
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.
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.
Since Cyber Hub opened its French windows to us, life in Gurgaon has never been the same. We love it for its slew of restaurants spilling out on to the main boulevard coupled with sprawling terraces. Take your pick from SodaBottleOpenerwala, Panchavati Gaurav, Zambar, Wine Company, Olive Bistro, Beer Cafe, Sutra, Raasta, Soi 7 and Imperfecto.
