“Road with a history”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

This is the street associated with the famous revelry of Calcutta from the days it was the second London of the British Empire. The road is full of bars & eateries serving a variety of cuisines and many of them have a long and famous history.

During festival time like Pujas and more particularly during Christmas / New Year time the street be bejewelled with lights and has a merry look.

“my Park Street”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

Since childhood Park street is my fave area of calcutta. There is New-market near by.
i used to go for shopping to new-market with mom and aunts and used to have lunch or dinner at any restaurant in Park st. Park st is full of hotels, restaurants, offices and very old mansions. park street was very cosmopolitan those days, different from rest of calcutta. During christmass and new-year the road was being illuminated and decorated. All the people who love to party they used to gather in Park st. It is a long wide road starts from J L Nehru Road to A J C Bose Road, Baithak-khana Bazar. Park hotel is on park st. Famous restaurants like BAR-B-Q, Blue-fox, Peter-cat, Mocambo (off Park st), magnolia all are on that road but very old and famous is Flury's. I feel nostalgic whenever talk about Park Street......

The nearest to a times square or bond street in Calcutta...restaurants, bars, pubs, shops, cafes and swanky outlets complete the picture...a must for outsiders or even locals

“The most happening Hangout”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Park street is always lively full of some of the best restaurants Kolkata city offers. Its also has a five star hotel Park Hotel which has superb nightclub called tantra for people to shake the leg and enjoy your favourite drink made by smiling bartenders not to mention great music by DJ.
Excellent restaurants are Kwality, Flavours of China, Trincas, Mocambo, Veda, Flury's, Peter Cat and a small roadside joint called Kusum offering Rolls to go.
During Xmas time this street is so well lighted and various programs organized by Kolkata city to keep the crowd mesmerized. The best time to come to Park street any day is from 6pm to 11 pm.
It has also got the Oxford book store which is a must for book lovers and you will find staff very helpful with a great vast variety of books.

“Hub of eating places”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Park Street iris what you call a City Center , all important eating places are there in one place,all within walking distance. In 80s this was the hub of nightlife of Kolkata or India with crooners cabarets etc but nw accept for Some Place else where you get a live music every night it is all food.
It is a must visit area for tourists indian or foreigners.
