Old World Charm Meets New Age Celebrations In Kolkata On New Year’s Eve
Usher in the New Year and bid Adieu to 2014 by celebrating it in style this year. Yes, Kolkata, the jewel of the East is the most hot and happening place now and you are certain to enjoy every bit of it by letting your hair down and setting the dance floor on fire come 31st December. The city virtually blazes with lights as every single street is decorated with fairy lights twinkling on a winter evening as the merry makers hurry trying to down the first drink of the evening. So why not Unwind In Style in the City Of Joy this New Year's season with good food, good music, a sip of that smooth Black Dog whisky and some fun thereafter!
British suits, traditional Indian garb and the long, embroidered sherwanis move cheek by jowl at every happening place from Tangra to Tollygunge. Nowhere are the celebrations more pronounced than the heart of the city, Park Street. Here you can get a taste of everything from the staid, old fashioned celebrations to the glittering, dizzy modern style of ostentation.
The newest hub in town is, of course, the New Town at Rajarhat where the rich and famous brigade are sure to turn up in hordes as the Bengali film stars. At places like Afraa and The Orient, the DJs jive in time to peppy music. The theme parties are going to be in full swing this year too so keep your designer and stylist on call, you never know when you might be required to dress up as an Angel or a Demon. The tiny tots will have their own parties as well where cakes, sweet mocktails, hot fudge and the ubiquitous burgers will be soon finding their way into the young stomach.
Be sure to check up the five and seven star destinations in the City of Joy though. With discounts galore that include a five course meal, dancing and refreshing cocktails, you are bound to find something that is going to appeal you. Pool side parties are an added attraction especially when you have made up your mind to ring in 2015 at a hotel or one of the famous clubs when Kolkata had been Calcutta of yester years. Tucking into bite sized BBQ fare, drink in hand while you watch the pretty damsels test the cold water of the pool with their dainty feet is definitely an added bonus for bidding good bye to the 2014.
Restaurants are going to go all out on this very special day as well and you must make sure to have your fill of Chingri Malaikari, Chitol Muitha, and Doi Rui, in order to check out the sumptuous fish dishes of the city. Don’t forget to ride a tram or take a metro train a part of the way as you go clubbing so that you get to drink in the beauty of the dazzling city that will be bedecked just like a bride on the evening of 31st December.
Relax, unwind and watch the world greet yet another brand new year on a giant screen television set up at the sparkling malls of the city and countdown lustily as the hands of the clock join together at 12 o’ clock, with a peg of Black Dog. Happy New Year!
