If you’re looking for end of the year season cheer and a place to ring in 2018, the capital has its roster full up. Well-crafted beer and cocktails, live gigs and special menus already rolled out, here are some that we have picked to amp up your 31st.


For a feeling of hygge (Scandinavian for contentment), head to Perch in Khan Market or Vasant Vihar for an easy New Year’s Eve drink. The white-walled wine & coffee bar is perfect to settle with your buddies, clasping mugs of best-mulled wine in the city. The year-end-specials also include eggnog for those who like it.  If you fancy an unhurried, easy paced night with lots of chatter, this is the place to be.

Vibe: The Sky Bar

Party till you drop at the rooftop bar, Vibe. If you don’t want to get behind the wheel after drinks, pre-book a room at The Hilton, where the bar is located. The 80’s theme sets the bar high for those heading to Gurgaon. We hope you have your puffy sleeve dresses and bell-bottoms out as the Bollywood music notches up the fun. Plus the rooftop ambience is perfect to celebrate the chilly months of the capital region.

Junkyard Café

Brush those dancing shoes and the raddest party clothes if you’re heading to Junkyard Café in Connaught Place. The New Year party dress code is ‘golden’, so you can expect a dazzling evening – well, view wise. Your ‘drink-swing-drink again’ routine will be taken care of by the in-house DJ for the evening. Look out for deals on beer and sangria.

Kitty Su, The Lalit

Partygoers of the city swear by Kitty Su any weekend of the year. Naturally, New Year’s Eve is only more amped up. Kiss of the Heydey feat. Irvin and Triangle Edge will light up the night with special acts from other performers. Kitty Su regulars (a.k.a kittens) have been high on the ‘PureLove’ hash tag all this month and you can well imagine the mood on the last day of the year. The music and live acts are well portioned. We doubt that anyone will care for the food. Book yourself a table in advance.

Expect the sprawling sq footage of Local in Connaught Place, one of the biggest bars in the heart of Delhi, to be dominated by the colour red. The dress code promises to be as festive as the mood of the bar, as ‘Best Dressed’ couples are judged and awarded by the end of the night. Unlimited drinks and food offer a bang for your ‘pre-booked’ buck as you ring in 2018.
