The first New Delhi edition of the popular Bangalore gastropub outlet, Monkey Bar New Delhi has brought all the familiar fun and funky ingredients to the capital as the original, including the same signature range of tasty food and refreshingly creative cocktails. The layout of Monkey Bar New Delhi is impressive from the outset, as a soaring angled atrium serves as part of the roof, bringing in rays of natural light to the already bright space. It appears to be a pyramid from the outside, but the artifacts that line the walls inside are oh-so-modern, being an eclectic mix of posters and pin-ups, heavy on the ‘cheeky monkey’ theme. Already gaining a reputation as the perfect place to meet up after work with friends for cocktails and bites, be warned that the crowds start filing in early at Monkey Bar New Delhi on weekdays. Some of the highlights of Monkey Bar’s drinks list are the Copper Monkey – premium blended Scotch, orange juice, passionfruit, mint, and bitters all served in a vintage copper mug – and the King Kong – premium vanilla vodka, banana, cardamom, and fresh cream. Monkey Bar is also a brunch mecca on the weekends, and as such, they have their own signature brunch cocktail made of premium vodka, dark rum, beer, and Tabasco sauce. Like the original location, the gastropub menu is full of fun international pleasers and you’ll find that there is always something lively going on at Monkey Bar to keep you partying well after dinner.
