Air pollution in Delhi is a problem when it comes to views. It might be able to hide most stars but there’s one it’s got nothing over. The sun is beautiful as ever in Delhi skies and sunsets even more. So, we choose to dine captivating sunsets and make the most of the one star we can still admire. While there are places, we could go to watch the sunrise, most of them wouldn’t serve food. A battle between food and pretty much anything is a lost cause. Let’s get to it then. Find out where in Delhi NCR you’ll find the most beautiful sunsets with delicious food!
1. Dramz Whiskey Bar & Lounge
The view of Qutub Minar was enough as it is. Mix that up with a mesmerising sunset and you have a magical evening you’ll never forget. This place might not be all fresh and fancy but, service, food and the sun make up for what lacks in interiors. The star of your visit still will be the sun over Qutub Minar.
Where: 1580/1, KD Marg, Near Qutub Minar, Mehrauli
Cost for two: ₹3,200
2. Ardor 2.1
The royal white architecture of Connaught Place could not get better, or so we thought. Ardor 2.1’s rooftop is a dream out of an Instagram feed. The sunset reflects on its shiny smooth surfaces to make you feel like you’re in the sunset, as if the sun just engulfed you. They have a Dilli 6 menu, a United India Thali and a Bahubali Thali!
Where: N-55/56 & 88/89, Outer Circle, Connaught Place
Cost for two: ₹2,000
3. The Rabbit Hole
Watching the sunset here will transport you to a vacation destination you’ve been dreaming of. While here, you’re sure you aren’t in Delhi. The view of greenery and Hauz Khas lake is surreal and they know it. They know it so well that they sometimes host Sunset Sundays with live music and bar offers!
Where: 3rd & 4th Floor, Building 30, Hauz Khas Village
Cost for two: ₹1,800
4. Antidot Waterbar and Café
Their black and white maze for a floor is humble compared to their pink and blue velvet seating. All this turns to gold under the orange sun. Sunset here is a treat. The Delhi sky will surprise you, you’ll see it as if for the first time. Couple that with some great finger food so you never have to take your eyes off.
Where: B-6/2, 2nd Floor, Opposite Deer Park, Safdarjung Enclave
Cost for two: ₹1,600
5. Mia Bella
This self-proclaimed romantic restaurant truly is one of the most comfortable, cozy and dreamy settings in the city. They have cultivated their culture in a way that every window is served with a customer worthy of its beauty. The domes of the Hauz Khas Fort, the white water and orange sun above it is a sight Delhi doesn’t deserve but the hero it needs
Where: 50 E, Hauz Khas Village
Cost for two: 1,600
6. Soho Bistro & Café
Expect the best mulled wine, cheesy pastas and amazing vegetarian food. This place is special on the list of the best cafes to watch the sunset because it’s not a rooftop, or even a terrace. In fact, it’s a ground floor. Their outdoor seating is no humble affair with green on 5 surfaces surrounding you. Up above you see the sky change colour during sunset and down below Soho Bistro’s colours change with it.
Where: Khasra 264, Ground Floor, Westend Marg, Saidulajab, Saket
Cost for two: ₹1,400
7. Diggin Chanakyapuri
French windows reminding you of Delhi’s beauty, lush green gardens so you feel you’re in the lap of nature and bird cages that set you free, that’s what your day will look like at this place. This is by far one of the most Insta-worthy cafes in the city. Fight us. We know you won’t. Sunset only makes Diggin’s delicious views and aesthetic food better.
Where: 10, Santushti Shopping Complex, Race Course Road, Chanakyapuri
Cost for two: ₹1,300
8. Social HKV
Social has many outlets in many cities but Hauz Khas Social is a special one. Why? Because of the view! The spectacular view of the Hauz Khas Fort will leave you stunned. They’ve also played to it and built the café in a way that blends in with the surroundings with open brick walls and rustic wall hangings. The food and drink here need no introduction. Their pauwa bottles are often found in the homes of friends cum thieves.
Where: 9A & 12, Hauz Khas Village
Cost for two: ₹1,300
Ambience brings just as much flavour to a meal as the food does. Great food is enjoyable but, great food with views like these are unforgettable. Visit these places now, thank us later!
