Delhi’s Best Budget Watering Holes -Part 1

Delhi loves its alcohol and how so! Car-o-bars are eternal favourites as are house parties. But if you’d like to break the monotony without killing your bank balance, we suggest these budget watering holes.

  1. The Project

Sip on Celery and Orange Margaritas while your eyes try to spot deer in the lush Deer Park.  The Project scores high on their location that is accessible yet away from the maddening crowd. The ambiance and the menu make this place a good choice for your usual hang out sessions. But what sets it apart from most others is their expertise in cocktails. Being one of the most budget friendly places (with such spectacular views!), we’re certain The Project can become your adda very easily. Beer Pitchers start at Rs 699.

Where:  Inside Deer Park, Near Hauz Khas Village

Nearest Metro Station: Hauz Khas

Cost for 2: Rs 1800


  1. My Bar Square

My Bar in Paharganj has been a haven for college kids on shoe-string budgets for years now. Their newer property- My Bar Square has popped up across the city. It is unpretentious and lives up to what it is known for best – cheap alcohol. We recommend sticking to the classics – you cannot go wrong with a rum and coke! Their cocktails are average, nothing to write home about. We wouldn’t say much about their music as well. It is regular neighbourhood bar best suited for sessions with friends, when you don’t care enough about anything else.

Where: E-34, E-35, 1st Floor, Inner Circle, Connaught Place.

Nearest Metro Station: Rajiv Chowk

Cost for 2: Rs 1000-1400


  1. Gola Sizzler

Gola Sizzler has been standing tall in Connaught place for 20 years now, as it continues to serve its famous sizzlers along with great drinks. The combination of mouth-watering sizzlers and drinks at such nominal prices is what draws most of the crowd here. The ambiance is quaint with old school Bollywood instrumentals doing the usual work to lighten the mood. For a chilled out yet budget friendly sojourn, Gola is the place. Beer pints start at Rs 110 and Daiquiris are recommended.

Where:  K-24, Opposite PVR Plaza Cinema, Connaught Place

Nearest Metro Station: Rajiv Chowk

Cost for 2: Rs 1500


  1. Pocket Bar

This place is a must visit for all those who are looking for the best “happy hour” deals. They have their usual “1+1” on offer but sometimes one may strike a “1+2” offer or a crazy “1+3” offer, while the happy hours keep on going for 12 hours of the day. The ambiance is not much to talk about  but cheap booze more than suffices for it.

Where: 15, Ground Floor, Vasant Square Mall, Vasant Kunj

Nearest Metro Station: Chhattarpur

Cost for 2: Rs 1200


  1. Garage Inc

If you are looking for a place that not only has cheap alcohol but some fun factor to it too, then Garage Inc is the place for you. This place has a 24/7 breakfast menu and happy hours along with a foosball table. The constant “1+1” may make you order more than needed so we suggest being judicial with the drinks. We recommend their appetizers to fuel your binge drinking sessions.

Nearest Metro Station: Hauz Khas

Cost for 2: Rs 2000


  1. The Brew Master

This place is a hit with budget drinkers because of their special “theka hours” (happy hour) prices starting at Rs 99. The bar has also come up with a 20% off on every order during happy hours. Additionally, their economical buffet with the delicious pastas and pizzas should not be missed.
