A great place just off Connaught Place was the QBE bar and restaurant.
Very large, airconditioned comfortable sofas and bar and a large terasse from where you have wonderful views (if it is not too hot) and can see over all of New Delhi.
Dress Code: Casual smart or as the theme dictates (they have retro evenings and all sorts of events)
On regular days, the place is a restaurant serving southeast asian cuisine. On Saturday evenings, the place is converted to Delhi's hippest bar filled with interesting, fun loving and beautiful people. Oh did I mention beautiful people?
Dress Code: On Saturday evenings, smart casual to cocktail seem to be the norm. Other days, standard casual/business should do.
It is in the middle of the backpacker district and it's roof-top bar sells cold beer at reasonable prices. I had already eaten, so I did not taste the food but it looked good when served at the table next to mine. It is a great place to meet and greet other travellers. I did not stay here as the hotel reviews gave it a serious thumbs down.
Dress Code: Jeans, shorts, T-shirts are acceptable dress.
This place tends to get quite busy especially as a pre-nightclub destination for delhi's partying crowd. enjoy the wide selection of vodkas on offer, the music is not bad either and if worst comes to worst watch fashion tv on the screens dotted around the place. it is fairly expensive.
Dress Code: smart
Usually has a good atmosphere and a bit of a wait to get in, but on a crowded night its either really good or really bad cos you can be having the time of your life and not care about being shoved around like you would in any overcrowded bar/lounge! cool bar area, spaces outside for dining...expensive but if you want to really enjoy yourself and see how delhi goes wild at night, this is one of your stops.
Dress Code: formal- no sneakers
The music here is as good as it gets for rock in Delhi, playing stuff thats old school new school hard rock soft rock pop rock...everything from the doors, chilli peppers etc.. the crowd is quite young and dont be surprised if you encounter some of delhis rockers in here, eyes closed and heads bobbing.
Dress Code: anything goes
This is one of Delhi's finest, the music is pretty good - it goes from pop to techno later at night...open late! the cover charge on the weekends is 3k per couple, during the week i think its free entry for girls and 2k for guys.
the drinks are expensive here. if you like there is also a 500INR all you can eat indian food buffet nestled on the side.
Dress Code: formal, no sneakers
a perfect way to end an evening is at the indiagate.although the monument looks great at any hour evening hour is illumination time also for people to gather together after offices, young couples to drive down and park their cars on rajpath and enjoy the evening while kids have their usual stuff with ballooons,foreign tourists have snake charmers and other trivia waiting for them.
hot roasted groundnuts/gram and bhelpuri a fiery mix of puffed rice chillies,tomatoes,lemon and indian masalas make the evening perfect. you also have the odd icecream vendor.
sometimes you feel like you are in paris at the arc de triomphe.
IMPORTANT ADV best way to spend the evening is a visit to the gates of rashtrapati bhavan.depending on twilight time start walking at sunset towards the indiagate it is around 4 kms.in the distance u can see the colors changing on the delhi skyline on one hand the raisina hill adorned by the rashtrapati bhavan casts its silhoutte and on the other hand the india gate starts getting illuminated.pl dod not do it the other way round as the raisina hill is quite dark after dusk and security is strict.
Dress Code: casual

This place has a real great sound effect. Built in three levels, there is something in store for everyone. Open on Fridays and Saturdays from 1600 hrs. to 0400 hrs. You can even have breakfast before heading back home or hotel.
At night if you have nothing to do, go to buy something like this in photo to try. This is Betel Nut chewing, it can be fun and get 'high'. I don't remember how much it cost, roughly about 5Rs each only, I got two and tried at night. You can buy this thing at almost anywhere in New Delhi.
The latest and largest nightclub to make an entry into the Delhi night scene. Has a capacity of almost 2000 and is spread across four levels. Not to be missed is the unique morning buffet breakfast after a night of partying. On till the early morning hours and open only on weekends.
