Hauz Khas Village in South Delhi mashes together the best of old and new India, and the result is absolutely charming. A neighborhood dominated by ancient domed tombs and medieval stone buildings is today populated by upscale boutiques, art galleries and a variety of restaurants, with a few well-manicured gardens scattered within the narrow lanes of the warren.
By day, the trendy neighborhood attracts shoppers to its range of boutiques, selling an assortment of designer furniture, jewelry, handicrafts and glitzy Indian clothing. Tucked between the expensive boutiques, you’ll also find quirky vintage stores selling all sorts of curios, like classic Bollywood movie posters.
At night, the neighborhood transforms into one of the city’s hippest nightlife spots -- a popular place to come have dinner and some drinks to the sounds of live music at a rooftop bar.
Since Hauz Khas Village sits quite far from the city center, consider combining it with a visit to nearby Qutb Minar to save yourself commuting time.
