The New Year Party Pulse in Delhi
It is to India, what Salman Khan is to Bollywood. There’s something wrong with it and lot that’s right as well. When the wrong things happen, you hate the city. When the right things happen, you dance with joy. But irrespective of both, you can’t help but love Delhi.
The epicentre of North India, it is from where the tremors of all celebrations begin. There is no reason for New Year to be any different. The ‘work hard, play hard’ mantra that Delhites live by is most apparent on New Year.
One of the most interesting things about New Year in Delhi is that much like everything else, it is an amalgamation of people from different walks of life coming together without boundaries. Everyone’s idea of New Year comes together to form a grand idea.
Spent after dealing with another year and its ups & downs, Delhites, it's time to forget everything, unwind, lounge around with a peg of Black Dog and enter the New Year with a fresh start.
The city is beautiful year round but as December rolls in it looks absolutely magnificent. The fog rolling over the buildings, the deserted roads, the blue sky with a hint of yellow where the Sun is and the distinct scent of winter in the air - all contribute to its beauty. It is safe to say that people who reminisce after Delhi winters are not wrong in saying that Delhi winters are worth it.
With the mood being set by the Delhi weather and a group of people around you, you’re almost set to spend the perfect New Year in Delhi. What are the things one should do to make the most of New Year in Delhi?
(a) In the spirit of their hard-working attitude, Delhites begin their New Year’s Eve by working at the office. The festive feeling in the air aside, they understand that work is important and spend the day in the office. However, as lunch gets over and the evening starts to crawl in, you’ll see them wrapping up work earlier than usual and prepare for the parties that await.
(b) Never will you ever see a Delhite caught dead in a style that is as old as their Grandma. So once they’re done with work, they head straight home and put on their fashionable best complete with the pocket squares and the cravats.
(c) There is no shortage of party places in Delhi, the most popular ones being at Hauz Khas, Gurgaon and Khan Market. Depending on who they plan to ring the New Year with, you may find Delhites at Raasta or Mia Bella in Hauz Khas dancing the night away with their friends; lounging with their better half in Soi 7 or Striker in Gurgaon or enjoying a festive dinner in Shiro at Chanakyapuri.
(d) Once they’ve welcomed the New Year, the party doesn’t stop but only gets wilder. Just dancing away a club is not enough for Delhites. It’s common for a night out to turn into a house party complete with their favourite drinks, a flurry of conversation and legendary Bonfires!
(e) Once they’re done partying in style, Delhites begin New Year in style with a huge brunch in a number of places across the city. You might find them in one of the more popular places at Khan Market such as Big Chill or in one of the hotels where the brunch never runs out. The best ones are served in The Radisson Hotel and of course, the classic Taj Hotel.
(f) Once they’re done with all the festivities, Delhites proceed to spend the rest of the day relaxing, lounging and unwinding. You could too Unwind In Style if you plan to spend New Year's in the capital city, along with a peg of Black Dog scotch whisky.
