Tantra is one of the most talked about places for night out in Calcutta. This disco and bar is located in the Park Hotel. It is wild party hangout with huge dancing space. Its Onyx Bar offer some world class wine and beer to its customers. However, Bodhi Bar is a better option as it is open for only members, so it offers some networking too.

Now, if you are looking for some old world charm, then Dublin at ITC Hotel is the place to be. Its Irish styled pub adds to the charm of ever flowing sumptuous beer. Sunset Bar is another place to unwind after a day’s long tiring work. It provides a cozy environment along with the best of mocktails in town. Apart from these, there are certain discotheques like Incognito, Anti clock Dance Club, Equinox and Prima Dona which are quite popular ones among the new generation. However, there is also no dearth of options if you want to spend a quite evening in Calcutta.
