An affluent neighbourhood in South Delhi, Hauz Khas has been well known since medieval times. A reservoir is circumferenced with beautiful buildings and a well-maintained park around. View of the fort during sunset and sunrise is beyond words. There are remnants of Islamic architecture roughly coloured by splotches of urban culture. The existing status of the village retains the old charm of the place along with an enhanced aesthetic appeal through the well-maintained green parks all around with walkways, and the urbane refurbished upmarket and quirky places of interest that have spruced up the old Mughal surviving structures. Hauz Khas Village is also known for its electric nightlife with countless cafes, bars and pubs. No matter whether you are a Delhiite of not, you eventually find yourself at the most happening place in the city.
The Hauz Khas complex is replete with a water tank, an Islamic educational institution, a mosque, a tomb and the semi-urbanized village of Hauz Khas. The compound is dotted with domed structures which are tombs of royalties during 14th to 16th century. The tomb of Feroz Shah Tughlak, a renowned ruler of the Tughlak dynasty is at the end of the road.
Hauz Khas has now turned into a posh locality with a number of restaurants, art galleries, and boutiques. The cafes around have impressive food to offer and the place adds bass and beats to its mood during the night. It has an infectious energy and you may catch a lot of live events hosted by several cafes during the weekends ranging from stand-up comedy to live jazz. It is one of the top places for the people of the metropolitan to head out for all their party woes. Be it cafes, pubs, restaurants or bars, the Hauz Khas Village is always the first choice.

There are a lot of great restaurants, cafes, pubs and boutique stores in Hauz Khas Village, lovingly referred to as HKV by the young crowd that frequents it. Narrow lanes, musty corridors and dark corners abound in HKV, so I always find it better (and more exciting) to travel here with my friends. The end of the road leads into the Hauz Khas Fort, a property with aesthetic ruins, lawns, a lake, and many visitors. It is deemed as one of the best hangout spots in Delhi by college-goers and couples alike. I like to take walks here when the weather is pleasant. Coast Cafe, The Tea Room and Social are some of my favourite cafes here. HKV was once the hub of nightlife, owing to its posh crowd, discounted liquor and wild parties. However, this culture has deteriorated since the shutdown of many clubs in the vicinity. I have limited my visits to HKV to daytime now.
