Someplace Else, the pub at The Park Hotel,Park Street is one of the hottest spots in Kolkata, and for all the right reasons. For people like me who aren't too fond of discos, Someplace Else is the perfect answer to a US's Hard Rock Cafe, or somewhere close for certain.


The ambience is sure to put you into the mood for laying back, casually sipping your beer while talking to your old friends and enjoying the music the on-house DJ(usually DJ Austin) offers. However, don't assume that DJ music only means ''Kaliyon Ka Chaman'' and all that. For a change, you get to hear everything from Bryan Adams, Scorpions and Enigma right down to Metallica, Guns n Roses,Black Sabbath and Pink Floyd.


The pub has the usual bar counter lined with the stools as well as the normal table/chairs. The most attractive seats are however the sofas that line the right side of the pub where you can really get comfy and spend hours whiling away your time.


Designed as a British Pub complete with casks et al set on the walls and various bric-a-brac and posters, there is also a separate area where the most happening bands of Kolkata play everyday, Monday through Saturday. Guest bands are also invited on numerous occasions, such as Sivamani,Zero,Insomnia etc and such nights really spice up Someplace Else.


The entire atmosphere resembles a family/friends gathering and everyone spends a relaxing and most enjoyable evening.


The most enjoyable fact about the pub is that there isn't any entry fee(besides a few occasions) and the staff are very helpful and friendly. To top it all, it isn't all that expensive considering that Someplace Else is part of a 5 star hotel. From 4.30 till 8.30, you can get drinks at a discounted rate, and the crowd really pours in.


Most of the crowd, apart from the regulars who are usually office goers are guys who study in schools and colleges. The friendly DJ even plays your requests for any particular song even if you bore him to death, and his choices are never-ending.


I would certainly recommend Someplace Else to anybody from 15 to 85...if you have been to Kolkata and haven't visited Someplace Else, do so. It's an experience you'll enjoy immensely, and if you want to stretch your legs, rest assured you can comfortably do so till late into the night unlike in some other metropolitan cities in India.
