You can only break the rules when you know them supremely well, and that’s what The Park has done with their ‘outdoor night club’: turned the swimming pool area into a party place after dark. Lounge on day beds that are partially secluded with gauzy white curtains, order a wide range of snacks from the Middle East and listen to music that changes tempo with the crowd. In fine weather, this is a sought after venue being in the centre of the city, yet with a distinct tempo.
Close your eyes. Imagine the cool water touching your feet, sounds of oud playing in background making you sway. You are comfortable and reclined on a day bed with a cool margarita placed within your reach. You donâ€™t need to be in Marrakesh to feel this relaxed lumber but only to head over to â€˜Aquaâ€™ at Connaught place in Delhi. Enclosed in The Park Aqua is a beautiful pool side nightclub devised especially to transport you to Middle East paradise. Aqua blue pool is surrounded by inviting white day beds where you can recline with your chosen drink along with your partner. The ambience is romantic so prefer to try this place on a date night to enjoy its experience fully. Candles flicker in lanterns placed in dark corners illuminating the pool area with hundreds of twinkling lights. If you wish to be alone with your chosen one then do opt for the private sitting area.
Start your evening going through the extensive wine list and do go over the mixologistâ€™s menu which is superb. Fancy names like love junk and razzmatazz makes it even better. To liven the party order mint o bomb shots before moving onto the appetizers. Mezze platter is your safest bet for a party. Moussaka is traditional yet satisfying. Food is every bit as good as the view so donâ€™t hesitate to move along to attempt kebab joojeh, pink salmon or sheesh taouk. The dishes are not complete without the inclusion of middle eastern breads. They sort of tie everything together with cumin flavour. The house music of Aqua is a perfect foil for the mood they want to create. You canâ€™t help but feel your body relax and adapt with the surrounding. To leave a sweet taste the club tempt you with juicy sweet baklava and rose water flavoured klaicha.
Under the stars and distant moon you can almost believe yourself to be in middle east. Though it may cost you a bundle to take trip to Marrakesh it hardy pinches your pocketbook at Aqua. Within thirty-two hundred you exit aqua with taste of rose water and romance in your mouth. Who knows you might bump into someone who might be looking for some Arabian magic as well.
