9 Amazing BYOB Restaurants In Gurgaon


Just in case you’re the guy who lives behind that rock in my park, let me explain to you ‘BYOB’. BYOB stands for ‘Bring Your Own Booze’, that is, a restaurant (or an ahatta, as it is locally known in Delhi-NCR) which has absolutely no problem if your Old Monk walks in with you. Cool as the concept sounds, it is a rather rare finding too. Which is why we’ve put together a list of places in the Capital where you can tag your Black Dog along.
