This cozy, co-working space is a perfect amalgamation of superb quirky interiors, out of the box cocktails and some amazing delicacies to barge into during the chilling winters of Delhi.

Food blogging indeed remains to be an unfinished job unless you mention closely about the food and beverage part and in this regard OCB does not fail to surprise you. Office Canteen Bar celebrates an exhausting range of some amazing cocktails, curated with an eye of innovation and perfection. Some of them are named so uniquely that you will never fail to divert your attention to any other specialities.

With all these credits to its bag, it also shares a superb menu, except the only problem being there is not much innovation in the area of food. I loved the dessert “Brownie Rasmalai” that contained chunks of dipped in smooth, creamy Rasmalai.
