Designed by Tanya Chutani, founder of Pantone Collective, the high-energy bar and restaurant marry organic walls and soft curves that straddle two distinct identities to create a fluid ambience. You can find fluid architecture, organic furniture profiles and free-flowing flooring patterns that serve as a striking design factor.

One step into the upmarket, winding streets of Delhi’s Khan Market, and you’ll find yourself surrounded by an array of restaurants, from cafés to cocktail bars. While a lot of these cafes and restaurants are going with the Scandinavian-chic look, Sly Granny, the hipster grandmother’s vacation home, is a breath of fresh air. Your eyes are drawn to the walls that are covered in a haphazard assortment of paintings and photographs as you up a short flight of dimly lit stairs. The walls are covered with photographs from the coveted Granny’s travels and posters of her beloved Arnold Schwarzenegger displaying his muscles. Printed wallpapers, pop art, contemporary paintings, brass furnishings, and dim lighting all contribute to the oddly unusual atmosphere, which is always cosy and welcoming. With a mellow jazz backdrop that promotes dialogue and panoramic vistas, the location is a reflection of both history and contemporary.

Where: Khan Market, Rabindra Nagar, New Delhi
Cost: ₹2,000 for two people (approx.)

6. Café Maka Courtyard

Helmed by renowned interior designer, Nitin Kohli, when you see the cafe from faraway, it offers a lively and warm ambience that beckons guests to unwind and enjoy their meal amidst the natural beauties. It is designed in a special way that artfully fuses many aesthetics. Made to look like a haveli’s courtyard,  you’ll see that the cafe is divided into two areas as you enter. You can order your favourite coffee or other delectable drinks at the barista counter, which is decorated in Moroccan style with lovely handcrafted glazed tiles. The outside dining area makes up the cafe’s second section. You can sip your beverages here while taking in the charming tropical atmosphere. A tropical paradise is created by the wonderful designs and brilliant colours that decorate the seating area. As you take in the vivid surroundings, you feel rejuvenated and at ease.

Where: Ambawatta One, Kalka Das Marg, Mehrauli
