DEAR DELHI: AN ODE TO OUR HOME
It’s been 3 amazing years of Sidecar, and the ride has been somewhat unpredictable, but always fun, sometimes bumpy yet constantly exciting!
We are now proud to be launching our Signature Menu 3.0, which will re-introduce you to “Dear Delhi”, a showcase of cocktails lovingly named after its muse. This menu is an attempt to distill the very essence of our city and showcase it through a series of libations that are as unique as its history.
The city overwhelms, excites, and thrills through its endless stories – hidden in plain sight for those who pay attention – in its congested bylanes, old neighbourhoods, bustling suburbia, and seemingly never-ending evolution.
Told in the words of residents, friends, newcomers, and travellers, we are bringing together pieces from different parts of the city to complete the puzzle through a collection of postcards. Each personal story is a homecoming of sorts and every cocktail is inspired by a pin code, the best way to pay homage to the different nuances of Delhi.
Let us pour you a tale, stir a poem, muddle a memory, and let you drink in the sights, sounds, and flavours of the capital.
Sidecar is an artisanal cocktail bar run by the team behind the award-winning bar, Cocktails & Dreams, Speakeasy. Carrying forward the legacy of co-owners, Yangdup Lama and Minakshi Singh, Sidecar was established in 2018 and is currently #47 on the list of the World’s 50 Best Bars 2021 and #14 in Asia's 50 Best Bars 2022.
A sublime interpretation of a bartender’s bar, the intimate space is known for their use of exciting ingredients, innovative concoctions, and signature cocktails (some classic, some seasonal and most craft) as well as zero proof and low proof drinks. The bar team makes most of the flavor extractions in-house including their own bitters, syrups, grogs, and tinctures – all with the single-minded devotion to producing some of the finest craft cocktails in the country.
Apart from being industry veterans, and having many projects under their belt, the co-founders also run Drinks India Company and Bhumi Farms together, both of which are furthering their intent to build a solid bar community in the country as well as be more environmentally conscious.
