Everyone is well acquainted with Delhi’s scorching heat – April to July is oppressively hot in the National Capital Territory and one can always do with a chilled glass of beer to cool down. For our own good, Delhi is strewn with beer bars and breweries giving us the much-needed cooling and options to choose from.
These are the few places that have a nice vibe and one can relax and cool off.
1. Chili’s American Grill & Bar
A popular Mexican and American food joint, this place offers a range of beers including some draught options. It is fairly pocket-friendly and if you visit between 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on a weekday you are bound to find a good deal. Their Quesadillas, chicken wings, tex-mex bowls and fajitas pair perfectly well with a chilled beer. You have both IMFL and imported beer options so nothing to worry about when it comes to options. There are quite a few locations where Chili’s is present across Delhi.
2.The Beer Café Delhi
With over 50 varieties of beer to offer, the Beer Café Delhi is one of the coolest places to be for beer lovers. If you are looking at an evening out with your friends to guzzle some beer and grab a few bar snacks, you should hit this place. The monochrome décor splashed with yellow will not miss your eye and it exudes some cheerful and happy vibes.
3. Turquoise Cottage
Popularly known as TC, this bar has some great food, drinks and retro music that can let anyone let their hair down. This is one of the oldest places that has retained its charm over time.

The menu is primarily American with a little bit of Tex-Mex thrown in. They won’t deprive you of choice when you grab a beer, they stock everything from Amstel to Bira to Kingfisher. The music just adds to the chill vibe – retro and rock songs that you find yourself singing out aloud along with the music.
5. My Bar
For the longest time, this bar was tucked away in Paharganj and most of Delhi didn’t get to experience the original place. But now My Bar has opened up at multiple locations across Delhi. You can find a pint of beer for under Rs. 100 here. One of the most popular hubs, they offer some great deals and you are bound to have a great time.
