Hauz Khas is ‘the’ party destination of any Delhiite. No matter who you are, a bunch of broke college kids or a group of professionals looking to party away the night, Hauz Khas has always been the answer. It is hippie town and we love it for the vibe it has. The old world monuments coming together with the new age bars, pubs, cafes and luxury shopping joints/boutiques to make for a mesmerizing amalgamation of cultures. But guess what, the dependable Hauz Khas monuments that have remained open to all, might soon be tickets only.

What’s the update?

It may also give the monuments enough room to go under restoration.
