At the best and the worst of times, Delhi can be a little overwhelming. In all of the confusion, sometimes we just need to take a break and get away for a little while. However, our bosses aren’t always so kind to let us have a weekend road trip, so here are some places INSIDE Delhi, where you should be heading to right away that’ll make you feel like you’re in a different place altogether! P.S. Some of these places might be closed, given the current scenario, so you might wanna check before heading out.
1. The Piano Man Jazz Club
It’s a first-of-its-kind jazz club in Safdarjung which is a pleasant change from the usual loud clubs and cafes. The décor is far from clichéd with the deep wood floors, raw exposed brick walls and rustic chandelier lamps that will transport you straight into the roaring 20s jazz era of American culture. The stage forms the centrepiece and focal point of the club as this is where all the magic takes place!
There’s never a dull moment and the managers make sure that there is always a stunning line-up belting out soul-stirring tunes on the grand piano. The food and drinks, which are prepared to perfection, are an added joy to the ambience. Come here and get lost in the melodious world of jazz! They’ll be opening their doors again on 1st August with limited dine-in and delivery.

2. Zorba The Buddha
It’s a spiritual retreat, cultural centre, gastronomic paradise and live music venue all rolled into one delightful experience! Visit here at any odd time and you’ll find people huddled together in groups doing yoga, art therapy, spiritual therapies and simply chatting and exchanging stories in the vast, green and peaceful area. At night, there are bonfires and the entire community of people here sits together to enjoy a warm and simply prepared organic meal. Sounds just perfect, doesn’t it?! P.S. The place is currently closed for visitors due to the ongoing health crisis.

Artusi Ristorante Delhi and Gurgaon brings the rare and unique flavours of the Emilia Romagna area in Italy which is known for its sensational Italian cuisine. The décor is minimal and inspired by Italian and culture with occasional pops of colour. If you’re overwhelmed by the choices, go for thearchitecture tasting menu which comprises a five-course meal.
We were blown away by the amazing quality of the soft, fresh bread and the creamy, flavourful risotto which was better and had flavours unique from anything we’ve tasted before! If you’re looking for a quick jaunt to Italy without the expense of travelling, this is the place to drop by at.
