We all crave for some magic, some sort of charm that would take us away from the ordinary and carry us to the whole new land. If you are one of those, enter the world of Dragonfly. The newly opened high energy restaurant and bar, Dragonfly Experience in Aerocity is a place where you can lose yourself inside a rather lavish, opulent and comfortable insect nest dedicated to high-energy gatherings. Walls that are decorated with tiny mirrors, pendant lights and the beehive like design will make you feel like you have entered a dragonfly’s lair. The grandest project to date, Dragonfly Experience is a joint creative product of restaurant czar, Priyank Sukhija and Badshah, the most bankable name in the current Indian Music Scene.

As a unique step on his recent multiple business ventures beyond Music, Dragonfly brings together Badshah’s passion for good food and style, standing out as a signature handpicked blend of experiences through the food and drinks and the unique vibe of the place.

This new place is unlike anything you would have come across in Delhi NCR. Those whimsical hanging golden face lights at the entrance will lead you to a 10,000 square feet resto-bar space featuring three levels under the same roof. With quirky chairs, marble top tables and a wall dedicated to bug anatomy in kaleidoscopic colours, Dragonfly Experience’s onslaught of colour and shiny light is like a breath of fresh air. Reflecting Priyank’s vision to perfection, Natasha Jain and Neeraj Jain owned, e-tailer brand, Bent Chair has created customized furnishings with a hint of their signature eccentricity in every design.

Priyank, along with First Fiddle’s corporate head chef, Chef Sagar Bajaj, has curated a menu that comprises almost 80 percent of exotic signature delicacies that have been designed especially for Dragonfly Experience. Trust us on this! Their food is simply to die for. You cannot ask for better Pan-Asian offerings than what Dragonfly has in its palate. The menu here is exceptionally detailed and the starters comprise a whole lot of options including soups, salads, sushi, ceviche, tempura, dimsums and the delightful 'Puffsomes'. This is a menu you could whisper into someone’s ear as a niche form of cuisines and lure them to dig in. How about roasted pecking chicken puffsome, crispy smoked chicken steamed bread or Tai Chi Crispy Chicken? The list goes on and on. Don’t step out without trying out their raw papaya salad and their range of Sushi.

The unique Manga Mixology menu, designed by world-renowned mixologist Richard Hargroves, ensures that you are tipsy by throwing up gems like the Sakazuki Cooler, Major Motokoand Goku. Known for his concoctions around the world, Hargroves has developed 16 signature cocktails that are unique to Dragonfly Experience. From the United Kingdom to New York to Hong Kong to Cape Town, he has worked in the drinks and hospitality industry for over 30 years. The Manga Mixology menu will come in a uniquely designed comic book which will take you to a nostalgic drive. Drink your woes away while sipping from the belly of a Dragonfly glass.
