Connaught Place is a delight in every which way. Centrally located, it is a business hub, a shopping nucleus, a food paradise, a loafer’s hood and a great space to be living in!
If you are looking to eat and don’t know where to go, CP is the answer. All kinds of cuisines on all kinds of salvers, just for you! Restaurants, paanwalas, dhabas, hotels, cafés, bars and lounges catering to every strata of the society are located in Connaught Place. Be sure to get a satisfying meal at any time of the day!
Apart from being my favorite place in the city to catch up with my friends, I also had the luxury of working - interning at Barakhamba Road, next to CP. I like to read, solve puzzles, dance, watch plays amongst other things.
Lutyen's best gift!
My favorite thing about CP is its centrality. Meeting friends from all corners of the city is made possible here. The abundance of places to chill at and the great food here just adds. CP has so much energy, it is a perfect rejuvenator.
You get pretty much everything and more here. So A+ to that. Rajiv Chowk is the central metro station. The roads are wonderful around here. There are a lot of autos here but getting an auto to go where you want can be a real pain. However, the police officers are real sweet and help almost always.
CP is heaven when it comes to the diversity of food options. My favorite is Kakke Da Dhaba. Amazing affordable chicken! Teepeeo's butter chicken also is a must. The Indian Coffee House with its lovely view and beautiful cold coffee (with ice cream) is delightful.
Janpath and Palika are nearby and are fun hangout spaces. Palika, especially after its renovation and the central AC, takes the cake in summers. Also, there are so many great movie places here. The Central Park is a fun place to walk in the evenings. There are a bunch of hotels here. Kitty Su in The Lalit is a fun club to go to!
