Love going there every time I am in Kolkata. I was just there in February recently and had the best time. Park Hotel has number of bars, in particular, The Aqua, a popular gay hangout. Check it out on the weekends.

It is a local market in Kolkata where you can buy almost everything. It remains very crowded almost all the days. This place is well connected to all the part of Kolkata by public transport.
