Howdy midnight children & Party peeps!
Ya, we know you love the night life and everything that comes with it. There is definitely something so mesmerizing about the wee hours that we can’t help but venture out into the call of the dark.
So, if you are one of those who party till the club shuts and can’t go home before the break of dawn, then these places are your second home. You spontaneously hop to these places to fill your ‘tum’ with some ‘yum’ after all that hectic workout at the club. Security concerns? Worry not. You would find half of Kolkata awake and peppy flocking to these night hotspots.
Even when you can’t think straight, this is where your mind will tell you to go.
