Exclusive | When in...Delhi Part Two

Exclusive | When in...Delhi Part Two

A swiftly rising middle class is pushing 21st-century Delhi forward in all the realms we love -- fashion, art, media, technology, and gastronomy.

THE BED
The Imperial
Janpath (near Connaught Place), New Delhi; +91-11-2334-1234
Live like a modern-day maharajah at this five-star 1931 landmark mixing classic Victorian, Raj-era, and Art Deco design with a museum-worthy collection of colonial art. Even the most basic rooms feature marble baths, Fragonard products, Wi-Fi, and D. Porthault linens. Don?t forget to throw back a gin and tonic in the clubby 1911 Bar.

Aman New Delhi
Lodhi Road, New Delhi; +91-11-4363-3335
After building its reputation on ?ber-luxe, off-the-path resort hideaways, Aman opened its second city hotel?this 39-room modern-Moghul palace boasting private plunge pools and terraces (at least in some of the suites)?in Feburary. Built around a tranquil courtyard, it?s hard to fathom the buzzing city on the other side of the walls.

THE THREADS
Delhi Cloth House
66-B Khan Market, New Delhi; +91-11-2461-8937
India?s answer to Savile Row, this sartorial sanctuary is an essential stop for demanding dandies who want bespoke tailoring at recession-proof prices (get an enviable new suit for as little as $100). Also in Khan Market is Ogaan, a trendy clothier stocking big-name Indian designers.

Hauz Khas Village
South Delhi; head south on Sri Aurobindo Marg
Set amid several domed Muslim tombs, the narrow medieval streets of Hauz Khas village, home to India?s National Institute of Fashion Technology, teem with trendsetting shops, restaurants, and galleries. Additional suitcase alert: Stock up on vegetable-dyed, block-printed tunics, saris, bedspreads, and tablecloths at one of the many textile stores here.
