The end of festive season means the start of another—and for us true-blue Delhi folk, all signs point north because winter is coming! It’s the perfect weather for getting the gang together and staking out a table at these fab rooftop restaurants:

(1) Social Chhatt – Hauz Khas Village

Located in party central HKV, this place is particularly lovely for a chilled out brunch or some daytime drinking. Their Loaded Goti Soda has us feeling nostalgic and we love their Banarsi Patiala (hic). Other must-tries are the Fantastic Mutton and Cyclonic Paneer with the roti of your choice. We guarantee you’ll want to laze the day away on this sunny rooftop.

(2) Auro – Aurobindo Market

Getting to the village can be a real task thanks to traffic, especially on the weekends. Luckily, there’s a plethora of happening places in Aurobindo Market to spend your nights, Auro which plays some great hip-hop to dance to. This newbie has steadily become our go-to for a perfect day out.

(3) The Potbelly Rooftop Cafe – Shahpur Jat

This place specialises in Bihari cuisine and has everything you need to fuel your shopping hanger. We love their Pakora and Poori Basket with their Champaran Style Mutton. Also try their Litti Chokha/Chicken and Mutton too.

(4) Depot 29 – Safdarjung Enclave Market

Depot 29 is a great place to listen to live music during the evening. Their rooftop is perfect to chill out during a mid-day sesh. We absolutely love their Guacamole Bar and they do great burgers and waffles as well.

(5) Town Hall – Khan Market

With a menu covering Thai, Japanese and Continental cuisines, a great bar and a fabulous ambience, this Khan Market eatery is best known for its yummy sushi. Their Town Hall “Augusto” – a platter of their best Sashimis, Nigiris and Signature Rolls – is good to feed 4-5 hungry bellys. We also liked their Chirashizushi and Nori Baked Salmon. Our secret sauces (sic pun?) tell us that their wood-fired oven baked pizzas are great to try too!

(6) Perch – Khan Market

There’s a certain calm that lingers inside of Perch. The greenery and clean aesthetic does wonders for the soul and the coffee is to die for. Other favorite drinks are their Sangria and Coffee Sangria. As for the menu, take your pick—we’d gladly devour anything of their entrees and desserts.

So now you know where to chase away those winter blues. Comment below to let us know your favorite rooftop spots!
