New Delhi is a melting pot of cultures. It never ceases to amaze locals and visitors alike. If you are in Delhi for a lay over or a business meeting, rather just one evening, prepare to be amazed. The city has something for every kind of person. And with winter around the corner, the evenings have cooled down and there's a hint of chill. Make the most of an evening out in New Delhi the next time you're in the capital.  

Shop and shop, till you drop

New Delhi doesn’t disappoint when it comes to shopping, whether budgeted or high end. We suggest you leave the malls for your next trip and spend time hitting the streets. From personal items like clothes and jewellery to household items, ceramics and everything under the sun, we suggest spending an hour or two at Sarojini Market or Janpath Market. 

Getting there: Get off at Sarojini Nagar metro station on the Pink Line and walk or get off at the Janpath metro station on the Violet Line and walk

If you are looking for a potpourri of culture, Dilli Haat is the place to go to. Quite literally, all of India is under one roof (or no roof) here. Right from food to intricate handicrafts, there are stalls from across the country bringing you authenticity at every nook and corner. Snack on momos from Sikkim or pork ribs from Nagaland while checking out intricate Kutchi clothing of Gujarat and Chanderi sarees from Madhya Pradesh. 

Getting there: Get off at INA metro station on the Yellow line and walk

Go back in time...

Delhi or Dilli as some like to call it, is home to architectural marvels, especially grand Mughal architecture. Very recently, certain Mughal monuments have been illuminated to add to its spectacular beauty at dusk. The list includes gems like Safdarjung's Tomb (near Jor Bagh metro station on yellow line), Humayun's Tomb (walk or take an auto from the JLN Stadium metro station on the Violet Line) and Purana Qila (walk or take an auto from Pragati Maidan metro station on the Blue Line). There's also qawali evenings at Hazrat Nizamuddin Aulia Dargah (See websitenearest metro station is JLN Stadium) where Sufi music and performances will take you to another realm. 

Finish your day with a scrumptious meal

Delhi has GOOD FOOD. We aren't kidding. While almost every state bhavan across the Capital offers authentic delicacies for dinner, and there are plenty of chaat places to satisfy our street food cravings, we'd suggest heading to Champa Gali (nearest metro station is Saket on the Yellow Line) for an oh-so-cute and quirky atmosphere or Khan Market (namesake metro station on the Violet Line) which offers a variety of cuisines. There are also other options for great places at Shahpur Jat or Hauz Khas Village but we like to suggest our favourites! 

And if you're still in the mood to live it up post-dinner, head for a drink at Epicuria (Nehru Place on Violent Line) which has plenty of options.
