The Best hangout place in Delhi – Lanterns Kitchen & Bar

Lanterns Kitchen & Bar is situated in the market directly opposite to the Rajendra Place Metro Station in Delhi. The place has been running for the last 15 years and underwent a renovation recently. The new improved ambiance and fusion food takes inspiration from a lounge café European setting. There are only a few places in Delhi where you can chill and hangout with your friends and still enjoy the music and the food. Lanterns perfectly fits in this scenario. The place would soon be opening its rooftop for customers.


The ambiance is stunning with a lot of seating arrangement choices. The music was brilliant and perfectly suited to this environment. Lanterns recently introduced its new food and drinks menu. The central bar is huge and has an enormous range of drinks. The most important aspect to visit Lanterns is probably its value for money. Not only the food but the drinks as well, have a great value and is unlike any other place in Delhi. Hats off to the staff and owner of this place to pull this up together. Here is a look to some of the items in the new menu:-
