Smoke House Bar Café in New Delhi

With some time zone lag, I reached New Delhi International Airport at around two in the morning. A few hours layover before Kathmandu happens. Layovers are lackluster moments if there’s nothing to do and nothing to see. But in India, it doesn’t seem so. A chill out place in the middle of the Departure’s waiting area, which could pass as a TripAdvisor approved bar café. The airport’s lackluster killer! #boredomkills Spending your layover at the Smoke House Bar Cafe, with a kindle, a bottle, and a looped song, is the thing to do!

How to get to the Smoke House Bar Café in New Delhi

The only way you can access this exclusive hangout is for you to reach the departure waiting area. There are a lot of choices to choose from, but this is the first “savior” you’ll see once you get pass the security area. Fyi, the security check here is the longest chore you’ll ever chance upon – in fact so long, so tedious, so meticulous, so back-and-forth, it feels like the time zone got stuck in their favor. Seeing this favorite bar place makes it worth the wait. Lol.

Smoke House Bar Café Favorites

Passing a few hours of time here is the best choice I’ve made in my wee-hours decision-making task. You can only do so much wise decision with little-to-no sleep, and this is one wise choice! The place is good for all out lounging, resting, and relaxed slow talks. Smoke House Bar + Café in New Delhi is good for big crowds, adult intensive families, and even some solo idling.
