Known for its artisanal cocktails served against astounding panoramic views of Lutyens’ Delhi, Cirrus 9 is the throbbing heart of the capital’s social life. From private parties and sundowners to corporate gatherings, this rooftop bar perched on the ninth floor of The Oberoi, New Delhi is a versatile venue. Imbued with The Oberoi’s signature hospitality, it sees enchanting evenings turn into electric nights.
The exotic cocktail portfolio here is inspired from tropical and oriental flavours. With a variety of innovative multi-spirit blends and in-house syrups, the long menu has ample choice to offer. We recommend sipping on Punch no. 9 (jasmine-infused vodka, passion fruit, cinnamon honey, Aperol, lime, bitters, and Champagne), Emperor Yao’s Pleasure (pandan-infused gin, pomegranate, lime, Chinese five-spice syrup served in a teapot surrounded by aromatic fog), and Five Spice Daiquiri (carta blanca rum, Chinese five-spice syrup, and a touch of Campari blended with passion fruit and lime). To complement the exciting cocktail selection, Cirrus 9 offers delectable finger food, including appetisers from the hotel’s award-winning Baoshuan kitchen.
The pulse of the lounge bar remains unaltered, come what may. Whether it’s a breezy summer evening or a cosy winter night, the rooftop lounge bar indulges its patrons with their favourite concoctions. With the unparalleled views of the capital it offers, Cirrus 9 is a sought-after destination all year round.
