A mad scientist's lab where nothing is what it seems! Shroom's drinks are edible with texture and flavour anomalies usually seen in chef Gresham Fernandes' dishes at Smoke House Room next door. A futuristic club that goes against the over-stylised trend and instead relies on sound, light and projection mapping to create an alternate world where you could be sipping a martini in NYC or dancing to a DJ's beats in St. Tropez, it comes replete with bottle service, a dance floor and a terrace with an unmatched view of the Qutub. Programmed by musicians with cutting-edge sound, Shroom hosts renowned Indian and international DJs spinning everything from house, techno and EDM on weekends to commercial on weekdays. The evil geniuses at their cocktail bar use molecular mixology to alter the makeup of liquids turning fruit into shots, making spheres out of liqueur and creating froth like magic. The signature Deconstructed Watermelon Capriojka is a delicate cocktail with mint air and watermelon carpaccio, while a couple of rounds of The Facial leave you in a gin soaked dream. As the club gets packed, order a Burst 52 and count the Baileys + Kahlua spheres just before you down them knowing that Shroom has you now!

Big things come in small packages, or at least that is the analogy that applies perfectly to G Bar. A tiny club by Delhi standards, G Bar has championed the cause of the 24-hour hotel liquor license and showed flashier (read bigger) players in the business how to use it to their advantage. A new entrant to the late night revelry scene, weekend party seekers can usually be seen queuing up here from 1 am onwards. The smart ones get in before midnight and find their nook though. Usually open till 3.30 am on Fridays and Saturdays, their entry charge ranges from Rs 1000-1500 for a couple or stags on special nights when they host guest DJs who usually spin Bollywood hits.rnrnMost nights you won't even find enough space to check out the decor properly, but they do have velvet booths, a marbled bar and warm lighting through the day and early evening when it functions as a hotel bar. Usual orders are for bottles or straight drinks with mixers, but the bar whips up signatures like The G Spot – a Cosmopolitan with a twist and the Grand Champagne Cocktails as well as various tweaks on the Martini and infused vodkas. For purists, they offer an exhaustive array of spirits, wines and Champagnes. If you get the munchies, there is Roasted Wasabi Peas and Grilled Prawn Satay, but the kitchen shuts early, so don't expect a nosh to fuel you as you dance. Glam up and be prepared to flash your biggest smile to the bouncers so you can get in!
