The pub situated inside the Park Hotel, is one of the heritage of the city. The bluesy-psyche atmosphere with the great music is what makes the place so special. Someplace is'just' not another pub, which are inclined for commercial stuffs and all. It ha his own class and noone can deprive it ofit's pride. It stands tall, with its head high, strumming all the way.


Although the pub has undergone several changes throughout these years, still the elegance has been the same. The pub has seen the rise of great musicians like Amyt Dutta, Sumit Ramachandran(although he was first spotted in Trincas), Gary Lawer, Anjan Duttaa etc.


The best thing is that you get to hear good music with some exquisite drinks. The trip goes high as the night progresses. Famous bands like Skinny Alley, Hip Pocket(a regular),  Lou Majauw band(did I spell correct), Prestorika, Parikrama, Indian Ocean and many foreign bands have performed in this pub. Park Street was the most happening place n the 80's, thanks to someplace. Even thelate great Shawn Lane has played over here, shredding it out. It was his last show, before he passed away.


The musical journey that the pub provides is inexplicable, as it can be experienced by an individual whose there live, seeing it through his own eyes. One request from my side, don't make the place too stuffy, make some arrangements. I used to have serious hangovers due to this.


From Floyd to Robert Cray, from megadeth(crystal and the witches played recently) to jimmy hendrix, someplace gives you all. So, instead of chitchattn, go to Someplace, grab a beer bottle, sit and enjoy the music all through the night. And the rest? The blues will do the talking. Yeah, you are damn right, It has got the damn blues. Cheers.
