Cafe Sound of Music, Gurgaon
Home Delivery: No.
Parking On Weekdays/Weekends: Easy. Ample parking space.
Gurgaon's original nightclub, famous for smart décor and music memorabilia on the wall, has seen its ownership change in recent months, with master-deejay Sunny Sarid selling his part of the business to trainer of barmen Sandeep Verma. That means the music is no longer Sunny's, and the present deejays are yet to make their presence felt, but it's still a good place to go and knock back a couple of martinis (the jasmine, lavender and kiwi versions are hugely popular) with Achari Broccoli and Prawn Thermidor.
The signature cocktail is vodka and apple juice, which goes down very well. If you're into Classic Rock, check out the action on Thursday and Friday; the sound gets commercial on Saturday; Sunday is dedicated to Jazz and Blues. The in-house band, Taantrikz, plays the current Top 20 chartbusters on all days but Tuesday. Wednesdays are for the ladies - they get a drink on the house. The Lady Of The Evening gets to go back with a bottle of champagne. With Sunny's departure, the Café may have lost some of its old magic, but it's staging a quiet comeback.
