Kolkata: Nightlife in the city is about to heat up with a slew of party venues gearing up to welcome Durga Puja and Christmas revelers. This follows the opening of at least 10 new venues in the resto-bars, nightclubs and pubs categories over the past year in major locations including Park Street, Camac Street, South City Mall, Russell Street , Park Circus Connector and Sector V.
A rebound from Covid-19, restrictions on overseas travel and unrest after two years of working from home are the main factors behind the city’s nightlife boom. Stock and crypto gains also added to the trend.
Owners of a Sector V nightclub have taken up residence on Park Street and work is underway to open the venue by Christmas. Another popular party spot on the Park Circus Connector is opening a nightclub in a Russell Street property that once housed a popular vegetarian restaurant.
“There are deals for venues that provide a good customer experience and have a competitive edge over others in terms of location, food and drink menu and crowd mix,” the venue owner said. in sector V which opens another place on Rue du Parc.
Two new party venues, Wafira and Makati, have sprung up at the newly renovated The Golden Park hotel in Ho Chi Minh Sarani. LMNOQ, a Skybar spanning over 8,000 square feet, opened on Park Street during Durga Puja last year.
The owners of Bakstage in Sector V have reorganized and reopened Motor Works and Brewing Company on the ground floor. By Durga Puja, they will re-open a cafe at the same address. The M Bar on Park Street has had a makeover and opened a few weeks ago.
According to pub owners and managers, there has been a surge in business after Covid for a number of reasons. “For almost two years, socializing has taken a back seat. Due to restrictions, people could not travel either. As soon as the restrictions were lifted earlier this year, there was a deluge in nightclubs, pubs and lounges,” said Sudhir Ahujaowner of Bakstage who revamped and opened a brewery and plans to open a cafe by Durga Puja this year.
“Two years of working from home had also made people restless. Over the past six months, at least two or three places have opened every month in different pockets of Kolkata,” he added.
The drop in the price of alcohol in recent months by some outlets has also played a role in attracting revelers. “Revelers are always looking for something new and we try to provide them in terms of food and drink menu, music and crowd mixing,” said Mohamed Nadeem SiddiquiGeneral Manager (Operations) at Golden Park.
