The Village Deck, a two-week-old fusion lounge in Hauz Khas Village, is easy to spot from a distance, what with its glow sign standing out amidst the intricate tangle of power cables. Their third floor establishment has a vintage staircase that spirals up to an open terrace, while there’s another level of seating in the works, not yet open to the public. Committing to the fusion theme, every section of the lounge has a distinct vibe. The indoor seating is comfortable enough, but even the outdoors are bearable at The Village Deck thanks to the massive cooler keeping things breezy at the desert-themed seating area, which also doubles up as a private party space. The dimly lit stone and mortar round booths are complemented by the bar — by “bar”, we mean shelves carved into the wall, of course. The earthy seating and decor are as close as you’ll get to an oasis camp in the middle of Hauz Khas Village. 
The hanging gardens on the same floor offer a more urban setting, while you could also spend time staring at the chefs prepare your food, or at the swathes of people below. Plants and creepers on the floor and the walls serve to combat the alarmingly high levels of pollution in the Delhi air.
Chukander tikki.Beyond this refreshing approach to decor, the Deck also offers a more conventional bar-lounge-balcony experience that’s typical to Hauz Khas Village, while the retro sofas, wooden walls and music console seem capable of handling events that should attract the Saturday night crowd. The Bullet Shot, a Royal Enfield motorcycle (salvaged by co-owner Vikram Manak)  finds a place under the stairs, next to the bar, and doubles up as a shots counter to add a little spark to the otherwise placid environment. 
The drinks are priced competitively and the food on offer ranges from finger foods to preparations worthy of being your main course for the night. The food menu is a collection of crowd favourites from Lebanese, Chinese, Indian and continental cuisines. The kitchen does equal justice to the mutton galauti, meaty and loaded with herbs, as to the pasta Alfredo, which is creamy and well seasoned. The Village Deck has a vast option of sides that go well with your drinks. The  chicken spring seekh is a tender mix of chicken, herbs and spices. The chicken sui mai is flavoursome and slightly nutty, but not as much as the chukander tikki that your vegetarian friends must try. It has a hard crust sprinkled with sesame seeds, with a mix of beetroot and peanut butter. Many of the dishes come with an accompanying green mint chutney, the kind that’s thick enough to keep you from double dipping.  
Multiple televisions and projectors placed across all sections of The Village Deck make it an ideal spot to catch a game of football or an IPL match or two, once the season is in full flow. The owners, it seems, are itching to experiment with the place, and we fully expect live music gigs or karaoke nights to add more flavour to the festivities in the village. However, for now, it’s a great place to spend evenings with friends without burning a hole in your pocket. And when you get bored of the location, all you have to do is walk up to other sections that The Village Deck has to offer.
