One of the best things about summers is that the day doesn’t end at 10 PM with you tucked comfortably in your blanket. Rather, it irks you to get of your home and go out on a long drive. The temperature comes down and with the cool breeze driving through the city isn’t a pain. Plus, there is no dearth of places to visit in Jaipur at night.
The wide roads are free of traffic and if you want to grab a bite, there are plenty of options. All you need to do is ring up your friends and sneak out of the house.
Anjali Sarda picks out a list of some cool hangout places to visit after sundown in Jaipur:

It’s huge, it’s pretty much in the heart of the city and it’s beautiful. There is no better place to cool down the summer heat than to lie down on the lush grass and chill with your friends. The radium tubes sold by hawkers might not last last but are good fun if you have nothing else to do. And for food you can always go to Aunty’s Cafe and enjoy the delicious Pav Bhaji. For years now it has been one the go to places to visit in Jaipur at night.
P.S: The cold coffee near statue circle is something to die for.
AMAR JAWAN JYOTI

Drive down a few meters from Statue Circle and you will reach Amar Jawan Jyoti. Between 7:30-10:00 pm you can catch the beautiful light and sound show voiced by Irrfan Khan. You can amble around the complex, pay your respect to the martyrs, or sit on the steps and chat as vehicles zoom through the Vidhan Sabha road.

This is for the die-hard foodies for whom hanging out means eating. The view is good, the chaat is great.
Also, while eating there if you by chance figure out who the real Pandit Pav Bhajivala is, let me know.

Definitely the most romantic place in the city, it’s the perfect getaway from the congestion and cacophony of the city. The occasional windy breeze will calm you down in the summer heat. While coming back I suggest you to stop down at the Jal Mahal Ice Cream Parlour on MI Road. Because what’s a nightout without a scoop or two of ice cream.

I bet you all have that one friend in the group whose suggestion for every nightout is “Chal Nahargarh chalte hain.”
And if you are in Jaipur, Nahargarh at night has to be on your list. You get the perfect view of the city from here and it’s surreal. The uphill drive is an adventure on its own. The place became immensely popular amongst the youth after Aamir Khan filmed his famous “Masti ki Pathshala” here. Easily, one of the best places to visit in Jaipur at night.
