Check out the night clubs
This is for the young at heart. There are plenty of nightclubs - Tantra, Roxy, Sheesha. Unlike other cities where everything shuts down at 11pm or 12 midnight, Calcutta is a place where you can actually get out of a night club and go straight to breakfast. You can have a really nice night out and then head to a place like Flurys in the morning. The underground music scene in Calcutta is perhaps the best in the country. The bands from Calcutta are loved throughout the country, and are must-haves in music concerts anywhere. Especially Bengali bands. So mark down a visit to Someplace Else. Every night of the week live bands perform there. And they are really, really good. Anyone who is in to rock music, goes to Someplace Else. Bengali bands usually play in auditoriums. So if you can't catch them at a concert, there is always Someplace Else. Deep Dasgupta
