  • You could do a business meeting here but unusually for a hotel bar the focus is on romance rather than commerce. This is the place to bring a girlfriend
  • Though this is not as well known, the Leela actually has a second bar at the top of the hotel, attached to Le Cirque with outdoor seating and an unusual bar snacks menu
  • In the winter, The Library takes over the courtyard outside. It is very pleasant but it lacks the magic of the indoor space

Vir's Verdict

4.0 /5

It is all in the lighting at this elegant, lightly-shimmering bar at the Chanakyapuri Leela. The late Captain CP Krishnan Nair, the Leela's founder, was one of India's biggest collectors of vintage cognac and this bar reflects his passion. You will find real cognacs here, some nearly a century old, that you would have difficulty locating anywhere else in India. But, of course, it also does all the usual cocktails and has a fine range of malt whiskies.

About The Library, The Leela Palace, New Delhi

‘The Library’ as the name suggests has nothing to do with books or scripts rather it is a library of choicest alcohol especially cognac. This bar reflects the passion of Leela Palace’s founder late Captain CP Nair and his superb collection of rare cognacs. The label of cognac stocked here cannot be found in the entire country. But instead of booze what pulls the patrons here is the ambience. There is only one word to describe the ambience and that is romance. The dim lighting and swanky interiors make the bar ideal for a romantic date. Just the right amount of energy and leisure can be found at The Library. Though the interiors are worth spending all the moolah it’s the outdoor area which steals your heart. The place is made for razzle-dazzle. There is nothing special about the set up but the clever lighting accentuates the patio transforming it into this oasis of intimacy and romance.
