Every city has its own drinking culture. Dublin has one. Berlin has one. London has one. But aren’t we forgetting something?
What about our very own Delhi? It might not always be fancy and it might not always be legal, but one thing is for sure, it is incredibly unique and if done right, it’s awesome fun. So without further ado, here are the Delhi Drinking Diaries.
1. Gurgaon is the Mecca for late night beer runs.
2. “You take it neat? You must be a bad-ass.”
3. Drinking without Tandoori Chicken is a cardinal sin.

5. It’s perfectly okay to drink inside your car.
6. It’s also perfectly okay to drink ON your car.

8. Unless you’re doing it yourself.
9. Royal Stag at home, JD in the club.
