This time we went out to the newest outlet of Junkyard Cafe, located in the popular Rajouri Garden market. In line with their theme of using junk items stylistically, Umang Tewari and team have used unconventional items to set up the decor.

Other interesting items we noticed were: part of an old ambassadors’ body hung up next to the bar counter; and a Mona Lisa portrait made entirely out of junk.

So head to this wonderful place where you can play 4 interesting games live – Hurt Locker, Lock Out, Cabin in the Woods and Abduction. The games have been written in the order of difficulty and with each game the level of difficulty increases. We started with Level 2 which was Lock Out. The 4 of us were locked in a prison for an hour and we had to free ourselves with the help of interesting clues which we had to solve. The biggest clue being “Look everywhere, even the smallest of thing could help you free yourself”. But one really needs to be attentive and think Out of the Box. Tough, a taskmaster will give you hints but it is you and your team who need to solve the clues or riddles. The team could be between 2 to 8 people in the age group of 10 to 77 and does not require any physical force.
