Insider Tips

  • Rick's was the first bar in India to popularise flavoured vodka long before it became trendy
  • It has a slightly schizophrenic air about it and sometimes pretends it is a lounge with lighting and music to match
  • Try and avoid Saturday nights when young people eager to blow up their fathers' money crowd the bar and make it difficult to get service

Critic Rating

Vir's Verdict Chief Editor & Lead Critic

3.7/5

This was originally intended to be a homage to Casablanca (hence the name) but somewhere along the way they junked the idea and turned it into a pretty ordinary hotel bar. But it is pleasant, has interesting cocktails and thought has gone into the evolution of the snack menu.

A Nice Retro Feel

his place has a nice retro feel to it and the music adds to the the same feel... went early the place was pretty much empty and the music soft...tried the pomegranate and lemon grass martini ..was nice (different )staff was helpful ....would have liked the music a bit louder for a pub/bar.

A nice place with great old time music and great variety of Wines & Whisky

The Ricks Bar, now a veteran in itself, has a great variety of alcohols to offer along with some good food. Good old Western music played by a DJ and friendly staff adds to the enjoyment of the evening.

A decent spot for drinks

When staying at the Taj Mahal Hotel in New Delhi and you're looking for a place to unwind then Rick's is the go to spot. During the day it's quiet with only a few guests but as evening arrives, the music gets louder and a DJ comes on (with the music being heavy on classic 80s - rather odd). There's a large variety of cocktails to choose from or bottled and draft beer. We stuck with the local Kingfisher which we quite enjoyed (light and refreshing!). Prices are steep and made even more so by the Indian 28% tax on alcohol and the 10% service charge that is applied.

Beome a "regular" after one visit- and enjoy the friendly attention of the Host!

Looking for a quieter place to relax after dinner -this is The Place in the Taj Hotel! Drink selections are very good-but the standards - are excellent!! Attentive service-but not over-bearing or always trying to sell you more! ( at least when the older host is there -he is the picture of brittish service! On nights with music, you may want to select a more secluded seat - but it is possible - and smokers are sent to their own separate room.
