Kolkata is a big city and it has numerous bars but it still boasts some of the finest in the country. Please note that this following list is not a conclusive one and is based on few facts that I have come across. The bars include: Xrong Place, The Junction, The Basement, Privy, Roxy, Aqua, West View, Underground among others.

The opinion may obviously differ from person to person. While some of the above mentioned are expensive, when it comes to sheer pleasure, they offer the best without any doubt. Being located in top notch hotels like The Park, ITC Sonar, they have some of the best facilities which one could use and if you get drunk, there is always a driver you can hire who would drop you back home which is safe for you and for the others who travel on the road. This is specially an added advantage for women who like to end their day on a ‘high note’. All I would say is Drink Responsibly and DO NOT DRINK and DRIVE.

Best Top 10 Favourite Bar’s Of Kolkata are Cocktails: Roxy, Live Music: Someplace Else Pub, Ghetto-Style Bar Stock Exchange: Shisha, Top DJs: M Bar Kitchen, Something for Everyone: The Myx, Young and Hip: Nocturne, High-Tech: UG Reincarnated, Glamorous Global Experience: Club Boudoir, Bar with a Pool: Aqua, Brand New: Phoenix.

Anyone who says that Bongs don’t enjoy anything more than chai with cigarette should definitely visit one of these bars in the city! Kolkata, at night, looks even more seductive with its display of some of the finest bars in India, and these will make you want to come back again and again and again!

 

So the list goes like this,

 

First, Moulin Rouge. Even the name is oh-so-classy! Definitely one of the oldest bars in the city, this place is perfect for a date or get-togethers with your close pals. The interiors are dim-lit and super classy. The bar is great and the live music is amazing.

 

Second has to be Someplace Else! Yeah, I know! It’s the name of the pub guys! So, ‘Someplace else’ is mostly popular for its 9 hour live music shows and the awesome live music sessions from popular bands across the globe. If you love rock ‘n’ roll along with your favorite glass of alcohol, this place is where you’ve got to be!

 

Also worth visiting: Xrong place, Wall Street bar and Monkey Bar!

 

Xrong Place, The Junction, Privy, Roxy, Aqua, West View are some of the best bars in the city of Kolkata. Xrong Place serves all kinds of liquor and beer and best place to drink Whiskey! Get ready to listen to the best Western music and you can catch a live Jazz concert on the large projector screen. 

THE JUNCTION is a classy bar experience in Kolkata. Ultimate place to taste the Rare whiskies and other premium brands of liquor. Another great bar in Kolkata is PRIVY, an exquisite lounge which is a hip hangout joint by day and club by night. THE BASEMENT: The basement of Hotel Samilton has been turned into a pub actually named The Basement and is a hot spot among the youth who like house and lounge music. ROXY: The stylish, sexy, bold cocktail bar is a tribute to the 60s. The must haves at Roxy are The Tequila, B52, Kamakaze shots, infused vodkas, daiquiris, martinis and Bellini.

 

Unfortunately for me, I have been to Kolkata only once, and sadly have not had the opportunity to explore this gorgeous city a bit more than I already have! However, from what little adventures I have had and from popular notions that ’ve heard from many, Olypub, Moulin Rouge, Blue and Beyond, and Regal Cinema Bar are your best bets if you want to enjoy the bar & pub culture in Kolkata! Out of these, the Regal Cinema Bar is closely located to most major attractions including the Howrah Bridge, Eden Gardens, and Victoria Memorial; the proximity makes this place a top-spot with most tourists and locals alike! It is a great place to relax and unwind after a day of sightseeing! The prices here are quite comfortable on the pocket and there’s some decent grub to go along with it as well.

Kolkata is dotted with lots of bars, clubs, and lounges, all serving a large variety of cocktails and a good collection of wines and liquor.  Bars in Kolkata guarantee you an incredible time every evening! As the sun sets, the city ups its game with these selective spots.

These bars in Kolkata are spread over the city, in different areas, and at all corners. Few famous bars in Kolkata are Olypub, Blue & Beyond, Someplace Else, Nostradamus, Amoda Spa Bar, The Junction, Xrong Place, The Basement, Moulin Rouge, Regal Cinema Bar, Bakstage, Roxy, West View, Underground, Shisha, Shaw Bar, Silver Grill, and Aqua.

Do try at least a few of them. They’re great!

Xrong Place: Xrong has all good things you need when you decide to drive out for drinks to a nice place in a very congested Kolkata. It’s got parking, 2 floors, great food and a smoking room.
Aqua: Poolside bar that has an inside seating for you as well. Go for the pool tables or sit with your feet inside a jacuzzi pool with your drink in your hand.
Bakstage: Now this is one fancy place that matches the great standards of the proper bars in other metro cities. Their location helps, they have a nice ambiance, they serve good food, and they whip out mean cocktails.

Blue and Beyond
One of the first rooftop open resto-bar with a view of Victoria Memorial in the New Market area. It offers casual dining and bar with live music. It is one of the best places for a dine-out evening.
 

XRONG PLACE
Xrong Place (Pub and Bar) is high in popularity among the youth. It is a great place to hang out where you can enjoy a wide range of beers and liquors.
 

SOMEPLACE ELSE
Someplace Else is another ideal spot to enjoy drinks and delicious food. No words to describe the ambiance with its dramatic lobby decor. This is the best pub in Kolkata to enjoy an evening of live music.

Looking for retro, swinging 1960's look. Look no further than this top rated Kolkata Bar – 

Roxy!

It has a total groovy look. It also hosts some of India's best DJs, and is great spot to chill 

out. On weekends, it does get extra crowded.

Next, we have ‘Someplace Else’ Pub. Located at The Park Hotel, 17 Park Street, this place 

is awesome. The live music is electric, and there is a wide variety of food, spirits and 

wines to choose from.

The plus point: Entry is free and single guys are allowed. There are happy hours until 

8.30 p.m. on weekdays.

Then, we have the Ghetto-Style Bar Stock Exchange: Shisha which has me real quirky 

drinking games.

I have a long maternal family, and since one of my maternal uncles live in Kolkata, I keep getting chances to visit them often. Last I went Kolkata was in November 2016. With my cousins and few other friends, I’ve got many opportunities to explore the food joints and bars in Kolkata in the past. From those places, the ones I liked most are Xrong Place, Privy, Aqua, Underground, and Shisha. I’m sure there are still many more places that I need to explore which I will on my next trip to Kolkata.

a)    Titos: A mid-range bar near Great Eastern Trading. A real cheap place, they have discounts too during off-peak hours. The food here is average, but the staff is good. It is a nice place for a quick eat out. Not recommended for families though.

b)    Lake Lite Restaurants & Bars: The interiors are very good, and the staff is quick and polite. The prices of drinks and food are affordable. When we went during lunch hours, it was not very crowded. Taste of food is also up to the mark. Planning to go soon.

c)    Smoke Shack:  Stylish rooftop lounge bar and restaurant with a dance floor and pool serving international dishes.

Xrong Place

This is literally an iconic pub in Kolkata and in an overpopulated metro such as Kolkata, this place is located in a lane where you can easily park your car. They are spread over two floors and have a separate smoking room. Stag entry is allowed, and there is a pool table in case you get interested to revive your school/college bunk days.

Roxy

If you are all about good lounge music, then Roxy in Kolkata is certainly the place for you.  Roxy is built into a two-storied structure, and the upper tier is more appealing. The place is lit up in red hues, and that makes for an interesting theme which has been taken directly from the swinging 60s, principally the background behind Roxy.

Bakstage

If you expect Bollywood music after 12 am or Bollywood music at any time in the evening, try going to some other place because a fancy place like Bakstage plays the best EDM ever. The pricing can be an issue if it is month end for you but the service at this place will make up for all the money lost.

I have always been quite keen on the pub and bar culture! So, obviously, it wouldn’t be rare for you to spot me at any of these places in Kolkata, sipping on my favorite glass of whisky!

  • Roxy

Loved especially for its top-notch cocktails, Roxy is an opulent bar with a jazzy retro glam décor and design! With some of India’s best DJs playing here, it’s really hard to get in on weekends!

  • M Bar Kitchen

This surprisingly spacious bar deserves a place in every one’s list of top bars in Kolkata. Located in Park Street, this place has a beautiful contemporary feel to it. The cuisine served is European, and their selection of Indian and international spirits and wine is exhausting! Besides being a delight on the weekdays, this place transforms into a hot party club on the weekends, thanks to some of the best Indian DJs who perform there!

  • The myx

I love this place. It is undoubtedly one of Kolkata’s best nightclubs! Owned by one of Kolkata’s very own veteran DJs, this awesome place comes with a luxurious bar, separate smoking area, elaborate food menu, great service, you name it!

  • Club Boudoir

Well, just like the name suggests, this place can be a bit heavy on your pocket! It’s a huge 6000 square foot place with an amazing 35 foot long bar. Enough said!

Also check out aqua, someplace Else pub and shisha.

There are not many cities known for their night life, but Kolkata ranks on the top when it comes to a good, chilled out night life. The city features numerous bars, clubs, and lounges where one can get to taste some exquisite and wide range of brands. One of the most popular bars among students and earlythirties is Olypub. Then there is Moulin Rouge, one of the oldest bars in the city of Kolkata. The bar is eye catching for the way it is built and also for the atmosphere. There are many bars, but these two are the best when it comes to enjoying a glass of your favourite drink.

Kolkata has and will remain the cultural capital of India where widely read people live, and at

the same time, it is one of the most cramped up spaces to live in too considering the

population this city could not handle. That aside, Kolkata has some brilliant bars and pubs,

many of which match the standards of good places in all the metros.

 

Roxy: This is a place known for its good music and its 60s theme. You have to wait till the

party really starts going and that’s 12:30 am. The ambiance must have been readied by

someone really design conscious considering the place is beautiful from the inside. Ladies

night on Thursday means all domestic liquor is in the house.

Aqua: Come to aqua if you are one of those people who like to sink their feet in water with a

drink in your hands. This is a poolside lounge and bar in a hotel. Their menu is top-class and

their staff is always ready for you. You can try from their range of Cocktails and Mocktails,

and you won’t be disappointed.

Bakstage: Now this is one place where the DJ knows his music and thankfully Bollywood

songs are not on the playlist. Bakstage has a great menu with food items each of which is

delectable. The service is amazing too.

When in Kolkata, you nedd to definitely see these places, no matter what!

 

Olypub

As old as independent India, Olypub is synonymous with affordable drinks in

Kolkata. Opened in the year 1947, Olypub is located in the hub of the city - Park

Street. It is immensely popular amongst all age groups. No fancy interiors or

extravagant decor, yet Olypub is always bustling with people for their daily fix of

affordable drinks.

Address : 11/1, Sarat Bose Road,Elgin, Kolkata

Titos is a famous joint in the metro city of Kolkata because it is cheap and on top of this, it

features Happy Hours from 11 am to 6:30 pm every single day. Happy hours, however,

mean that for every two large drinks, you would get the third one free.

Roxy

Roxy is my favourite bar in Kolkata because of the fine cocktails it provides. It is double

storied and most people like going to the upper story. The real party at Roxy starts after

12:30 am, and nobody minds that.

 

Bakstage

Bakstage is most famous because of the yummy food it has on its menu, and it turned out to

be finger licking good. This place has a swanky decor and plays some good music to

complement your drink and delicious foods.

The staff is nice and helpful and quick. They helped us choose the right food item every

time. If you have a drinking capacity, then the place can turn out to be slightly expensive
