There is an absolute paucity of live bars in and around Delhi, and this one is the best I have found so far, the ambience is nice and the food ok. Beer choice is limited. By western standards you might find everything mediocre to poor but the locals lap it up. The band I saw was a filipino couple, one guitarist who did a kind of karaoke act to midi files on a laptop. Filipinos are in general excellent mimics and this couple could be mistaken for listening to the real recording of the covers that they were doing, except the pronunciation of words with th, which come across as a "D" I had to chuckle as I remembered an episode of only fools and horses where Del boy signed cassandra up with a singer who, it turned out, pronounced his 'R' s as 'W'. The gween gween gwass of home... Not a great place to go on your own, i found myself stuffed up against the speaker by the bar, until they found me a table for two behind a pillar. If you're in India and craving something almost western this is a good alternative.

Settled in outer circle of Connought Place, near American Center, This restrobar is pretty good if you are there for drinks only or some starters...
do not order food especially if you are in hurry, they can kill you with making you wait...
all drinks are nice and pretty much under nice budget, but food is way too expensive, but the main USP of the blues lies in two things...
1. dark environment... where you can even ask for candles and enjoy a romantic dinner...
2. live gigs... live gigs on almost every evening after 7... though artists are normally repeated but they are good and accept requests for your favorite songs too...
i remember one time when i was there with my best pals and we requested "here without you- 3doors" and while the artist played and sang the song... we were singing with him too... in the highest pitches from our throats... what a memorable experience that was...
and yes... if you are a smoker... they dont have a smoking area...
though you can go outside and smoke (that is what all smokers do)...
in short nice place to spend a nice evening in Connaught Place...

Blues is a nice place to hang out with friends and acquaintances. The food is good, the beer reasonable. They have a good range of salads and the service is way too fast. Above everything, it is the live music that bolsters the whole experience. Cheers!

Despite being recommended in the rough guide, this place was empty when we visited. The beers weren't too expensive, the environment was pleasant, but it's never great to be in a bar where there's more staff than customers. Maybe we hit it on a bad night but I probably wouldn't return.
