No More Rooftop Cafés/Lounges Active In Connaught Place

Posted at February 10th, 2017 | by Shivani Goel | in

On 2nd February a portion of a building in Connaught Place collapsed in C block, the repercussions of which lead to the New Delhi Municipal Council to inspect the structural stability of the heritage buildings in the area. They’ve decided to ban 21 restaurants from using their rooftop areas to entertain.

Expectedly, restaurant owners claim that open-air eating doesn’t pose a threat but the NDMC has formed a team of experts from IIT Delhi along with their own structural engineers to check the area and submit a report within 20 days. They think removing generators and big water tankers should help in keeping the buildings stable.

The affected restaurants include Warehouse Cafe, The Vault Cafe, My Bar HQ, Kinbuck-2, Kitchen Bar, Lord of the Drinks, Open House Cafe, Jungle Jamboree, Boombox Cafe, Farzi Cafe, House of Commons, Hotel Palace Heights, Office Canteen Bar, Luggage Room, Cafe OMG, Unplugged Courtyard, Barbeque Nation, TC Bar & Restaurant, Teddy Boy Restaurant and The Niche Restaurant.

“According to the norms, use of terrace and balconies in heritage buildings is barred for any kind of commercial activity. The traders association has also written several times to NDMC to stop issuing licence to new eateries as it is increasing the load on the heritage building,” said a senior NDMC official.
