The entirety of College Street is famous as the heart of the Bengal Renaissance movement in Kolkata. It is a historic place that today has become a famous hangout spot. It is a street that contains legacy of the heroic era of our country. A multitude of small and big book stalls lined together that are always bustling with book lovers as well as students of several reputed institutes, including the Calcutta University and the Calcutta Medical College, have been a part of this area since ages. The renowned Indian Coffee house is also located here at the College street. It is a huge open cafe in the heart of the city that has always been popular as the classic 'adda' of Bangla intellectuals and students.

Walking through the area you can witness the varied philosophies and belief systems that concern the educated youth of the nation.
