The JUGAAD Cafe & Bar - New Workplace in Town

One more cafe adds to the Delhi circuit, yes the Jugaad Cafe. But this is a little different than others, it's made up in a jugaadu way. JUGAAD means to set up something with whatever things or sources possible, using anything which can probably fit into. The word Jugaad is synonymous to the everyday lingo of the youth in the capital, a term that has become so popular that it found its place in the presentation of Travis Kalanick, Founder - UBER at the recently concluded Start Up India Conference 2016. 

The Jugaad Café & Bar as the name suggests has been designed with everyday waste. The property that dons the hat of a cafe cum co-working space in the morning/afternoon serves good tea and coffee with a special Jugaad menu. In the coming few days, they will be coming up with charging points on all the tables and a printer & desktop one at the third floor, it attracts all the creative geniuses and enthu cutlets of the capital who are looking to work in a conducive environment with a bit of character around them. Tune into the evening hours, and the place transforms itself into a restro-bar churning out some foot tapping numbers and chartbusters over exotic dishes from the kitchens around the world. According to the owners Aryan Singh and Vani Vats, there’s a Jugaad for everyone out here!

The same funda is used here; bottles of wine and beer are used in the decor very nicely. Even the crowns of the beer bottles are used to enhance the table decor.Wall clock and roof lights are done up with bottles.

The most quirky thing which I found was the use of transparent glass on level 1 on the floor. It is highly adventurous. Also the use of WC's in the Smoking area on the 2nd level is hilarious.
They are already creating ripples and waves in the market but a major boost up will come only after they get the liquor license which is expected by the end of February. The fact that five distinct chefs have led their expertise in curating the menu gives a very holistic feel yet maintaining its quirkiness. From Chef Pranay Kumar to Continental; Chef Mohinder Kohli to Chinese; Chef Shravan Choudhary to Indian , there’s a delectable Jugaad for almost all cuisines.


We tried their food, starting with the Masala chana w served in small bucket portions and liked it a lot. They serve a Tangy mocktail which has tamarind in it (must try). I liked the Basa fish balls served over the shot glasses, very healthy as it was just not fried. The Lamb potli or the money bags were really good .Thai curry and the Mongolian chicken are also done well.

Overall a quirky and peppy setup for attracting people from all age groups.This café will make Defence Colony market a fresh place to be.


Address: 10, Ground floor, Defence Colony main market, New Delhi
Time: 12noon – 12 midnight
