Kolkata (Calcutta)

After a spell of gloom, the nightlife scene has been looking up, largely due to the city’s deathless love for music, theater, and food. Venues in Park Street, Ballygunge, and even the satellite city of Salt Lake host local bands with a loyal following. They perform until midnight, which is late by the city’s (and most of India’s) standards.

During Durga Puja, the city remains up all night. Lounges, sheesha (hookah) bars, and discos all draw well-heeled young entrepreneurs, fashion designers, models, and professionals. Cabs run late into the night and are usually considered safe. Be cautious while traveling on your own, however, especially late at night.
