Food, Fashion, Art! All Is Found At Delhi’s Most Unexpected Hub Dhan Mill Compound In Chattarpur!

by Vidisha Khaitan

Dhan Mill Compound came out of nowhere and just like that all our woes disappeared into a thin air. Delhi never saw this one coming. This city’s new top spot emerged in one of the most unexpected places. It’s isolated, but not lonely. It’s like no other but feels like home. People here breathe food, fashion or art, or all three. Let’s show you what a trip to our current favourite hangout spot would be like. You can also Spend A Winter Day With Dahi Butter Chicken, Delhi’s Best Kebabs & Veg Biryani At Nizamuddin!

1. First, coffee

Sunlight fills Quick Brown Fox Coffee Roaster on a sunny winter day. The plants, the wooden tables and rustic interiors instantly clear your mind, even before that first sip. People here are calm and carry a smile proudly, something that’s hard to find amidst Delhi traffic and mundane disasters. The food here is very well reviewed, but we have a place even better in store for you. All in good time. Here, just get your kind of coffee (because they have it all), with a light snack of your choice.

2. Oddbird Theatre

This has become the host of Delhi’s most exclusive events very quickly. The people involved in managing and organizing this place and its engagements are usually artists themselves craving a dip in the pool of likeminded people. Volunteering here is a batch of honour. It periodically schedules mental wellness programs, dance workshops, musical gigs, the likes of Lifafa and Dee En have performed here for a small crowd. They have a small but great library of unusual books. This place makes you feel like you can be whoever you want to be. It’s definitely Dhan Mill Compound’s big win.

3. Now, food

Café Dori is the ultimate food place in not just Dhan Mill Compound but, arguably in all of Delhi. Its popularity, while well-deserved, makes it a bit hard to find a table easily. So, be prepared to wait because there’s no way you can go back without trying their waffles. Their menu is nothing like you’ve ever seen before. The best part? Dogs are welcome! This pet friendly place has a special area for pets and a pet menu too! If you’re wondering if Café Dori sounds all too familiar to one of the Delhi’s much-loved brands, you’re in for a pleasant surprise. The café shares space with none other than Nappa Dori. People come here to work on weekdays and to forget work on the weekends.

Pet lovers can waltz into Stars and Snowflakes by Aastha for some pawsome pleasure. We saved a big one for last. Big Dance Arena and Crossfit Himalayan Gym are considered crown jewels by regulars.
