Connaught Place Is Reluctant To Increase It's Nightlife

Posted at October 10th, 2016 | by Yash Vikram Singh | in

As compared to what it is today, 4-5 years ago CP was a ghost town. Insurgence of several new restaurants and bars have opened up, 250 to be precise. Although, it has given CP a massive facelift, according to the National Restaurant Association of India isn’t faring well. Disgruntled shopkeepers are complaining about sewage and foul smell. Drainage trickles down from the floors above and gets choked which leads to foul smell. On top of that the infrastructure is really old and the number of restaurants in CP and the footfall will only increase.

“It has become difficult even for the police to manage the crowd in CP, with so many people visiting the area on the weekends. Footfall is welcome and we have nothing against business, but security concerns can’t be ignored, with people visiting CP till late into the night.

We are planning to develop CP as a cultural hub, but there are no CCTVs installed in the area, though we have been petitioning the authorities for a long time. Also, the success of these restaurants has added to the problem of vagrants in CP – their number has gone up and the police can’t do anything about them unless they are involved in a serious crime. Parking has become a mess. On the weekends, it is a nightmare,” says NDTA president Atul Bhargava.

The fate of CP’s nightlife seems to be hanging in the balance. Let us see what’ll happen. Stay tuned.
