Once a relatively quiet place after the sunset, Kolkata enjoys an electrifying nightlife today. From cool watering holes to pulsating disco theques, the nightlife in Kolkata has it all and more to boast of. Some of most happening spots once the sun goes down are:

  • Musical Fountain
    A tourist’s favourite in Kolkata, every night the setting sun witnesses the dancing musical fountain in front of the Victoria Memorial in the Citizen Park. Be awed by the swaying jets of water lit in colourful hues and fascinated by the aesthetic quotient of these fountains. One of the unique features in Kolkata, this musical fountain is equally mesmerising for both adults and kids.
