Try the Kashmiri Duck & Apricot Kulcha, the housemade Indian breads and small plates like Paneer chili and Tandoori Mushroom while sipping one of the specialty drinks.

Standouts include the New Delhi Sour (pictured, above), a classic whiskey sour reinvented with Charles Medley Brother’s 102 Proof Bourbon, rose hip shrub, citrus, egg white and bitters or the Royal Mawalin made with Nolet’s Gin, Barolo C, Potli Masala-infused Aperol rested for 5-8 weeks in Kentucky White Oak Barrels and served over ice with Rooh Afza Syrup. This is Baar Baar’s take on a Mawalin – a bittersweet concoction made with dates, herbs, and spices – and it can be sipped straight or with soda.

There is also a selection of beer and wine if that’s more of your thing. Happy Hour is from 4-7pm on Monday through Saturday, and there is After Hours Thursday from 11pm til 2am. That’s definitely a reason to come again…and again.
