Today’s generation has its own set of dos and don’tsregarding society and social interaction. Just a few decades ago, it would have been inconceivable to think that a man could take a lady out to a restaurant without a prior established equation between them. Cut to today’s times and the scene is diametrically opposite- crushes, relationships, breakups are an intrinsic part of a millennial’s life. So, today it is quite an ordinary sight to witness a couple on a date.

A date is a special evening for a couple, which has to be delicately planned and executed.The environment should be conducive; the right mood has to be created;the conversation must flow freely. Choosing the correct dating place is a focal point around which these three variables rotate. Certain eateries are either too loud or too crass. For that reason, in a place like Delhi, searching for a suitable place can be a tedious task.Yet there are a select few hideaways in the city that are just perfect for a romantic rendezvous:

A date night can be spent dancing away to their energetic beats amidst laughter and a delectable meal.
