They call it ‘The Hangout’ but it is more than that for those who come here. In Gurugram, on Nathupur Road in DLF Phase-III, this cafe is an attempt to redefine a drop-in-centre for those recovering from alcoholism and its rippling effects.
About 80% of the visitors suffer from alcoholism, the rest are indirect sufferers of it because of a loved one. The buzz is like any other cafe — non-intrusive, private. A cup of coffee heals some sitting in silence, and new friendships are forged over small talk.
