Best Nightlife Experiences In Delhi

By Rishabh Thakur for Holidify on December 7, 2017

Some of the most electrifying nights you spend in the capital are when you decide to ditch your sleep. Yes, we are referring to the time when the moon is high and so are you! When the masses sleep and the classes rule the city! The nightlife in Delhi is famous for its parties and party animals. 

When the word nightlife or night out (as most of the Delhiites calls it) pops out of anyone's mouth, the instant trigger of our imagination pulls out the shots of drinks, dance, and DJ. But that's not it; the Delhi's way of owling is not bound to these three segments. One can relish a night in peace too, having food, late night drives and tons of other stuff to do.

So, here we are listing some popular picks for you to plan your next night out-
