Jaipur is not only the old city...Take a walk on its modern (wild) side:
There are numerous touristic sites to discover when in the old city of Jaipur.
But why not also exploring the modern part of Jaipur which is just next door?
The two districts of C-Scheme and Civil Lines are the areas where the trendiest places are located: cafes, bars, spa...
Here are a few addresses in C-Scheme and Civil Lines that you should pay a visit to while staying in Jaipur:

Choose a table outside and start with a cocktail, the manager of the bar used to be an awarded bartender in Delhi and his passion for cocktails reflects on the menu. The food is also a must, good taste and quantity. The green chicken/veg curry is delicious, pizzas are lovely and fried rice or Lamb fried honey are heaven. Believe us you can pretty much try anything, the chef is one of a cook!
If you are looking for some dancing, go down the stairs and get on the dancefloor. Be quick it closes at 11.30 pm!

On the rooftop of a high building, you will get a panoramic view of Jaipur while enjoying cocktails in cosy enclosed pagolas or tables set on the terrace. Perfect for small groups of individuals and friends to come together for having a blast. In the center, the dancefloor and restaurant area are fitted out with comfy chairs and cushions and a Dj featuring Bollywood and Techno music comes alive in the evenings. A promise to sit under the Jaipur's sky at night is a worthwhile experience! Open from 11:00am - 11:30pm.
This restaurant-brasserie is the place of young workers, couples, families and foreigners living in Jaipur who like to find their fresh baguettes and croissants!
We like the warm ambiance, the refined decoration, the terrace and the big sofas inside, on which you can spend hours sipping expresso coffees. They propose a large range of pastries (nutella cheese cake, carrot cake, opera, lemon tart, walnut tart... and so many treats that you must taste!). For your lunch you will find some fresh vegetarian and non-vegetarian products, delicious salads, pizzas (even with bacon!), pastas and many other marvels. Don't miss the lemon ice tea!
This restaurant is hugely inspired by Bollywood. The thematic décor includes posters of Bollywood legends - Amitabh Bachchan, Rajnikant and Amrish Puri adorning the walls. The menu will certainly make an impact on your palate, as it offers a fairly wide range of mixed cuisines, including both vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes. Specialising in Mughlai, continental and Indian food, the restaurant is open from 11 am to 11 pm. Home delivery also available!
Associated with organic farming initiatives, this Italian restaurant is doing proper Italian food! A joy for the travellers who miss the tastes of the true Italian cuisine.
