Chokelao Garden Terrace Café
At the base of the Mehrangarh Fort is an 18th-century garden that has been converted into a lovely café. Tables are set on the upper terraces of the stone building that encompasses the garden area so you have great views of the “Blue City” below and the towering fort above. The café is open for lunch from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. but it can also be rented out for private dinners, which are magical.
The chic rooftop restaurant at the Raas Hotel offers spectacular views of the grand Mehrangarh Fort towering above the city. The romantic setting is enhanced by white linen loungers, flickering candles and the lush gardens that surround the terrace. The menu highlights the rich flavors and spices of Northern Indian cuisine and features fresh vegetables grown in the hotel’s garden.
For some of the best views in town, head to the small historic hotel called Pal Haveli, whose rooftop terrace restaurant, Indique, is a fantastic spot for pre-dinner drinks. Take in a fantastic perspective of all of the great sights of the blue city.
