“After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.” Aldous Huxley
Just as food nourishes the body, music nourishes and soothes the souls, weary of work and worldly affairs. In this fast-paced world, stealing a few moments in the company of friends, good music, and wine can do wonders. Delhi being a potpourri of culture, music, food, and fashion boasts bars that not only serve out of the world cocktails but also live music that can get you to groove to its rhythm. Also, hearing a live band has a charm of its own with singers creating magic with a mellifluous rendition of old classics, be it in English or Hindi.
