Nightlife in Kolkata is popped with energy and excitement. The
people of Kolkata are believed to have a natural bent of mind and as
such very creative. Whatever the reason be but the consequence
reveals active participation and adoption of versatile lifestyle by
the upcoming generations. The nightlife that started as a phenomenon
in the state towards the last decade of 20th century has engulfed
the city in deep chasm, an eternal bliss. Younger generations prefer
action based participation rather being mute audience in the cinema
halls. For these people it is innovation, it is discovering the
beautiful side of night if not life.
The nocturnal activities take a full blast at midnight in the city.
The pubs, bars, coffee shops and discotheques come to life. There
are drinks, glittering neon, sign boards and lots of noise. The
dance floor rumbles and the music flows as more and more people come
to these places. The best liqueurs and cocktails unfold under the
roof of these places. Muscles move ad heart thumps with the beats
produced by massive amplifiers. It is hard to define such feelings
one experiences at these places. An appropriate term would be like
expressing oneself or maybe living life to its full.
With the advent of all these avenues the characteristic features of
Indian youth is fast changing. Fun and excitement at the rate of
money is the motto of the clubs and discos in Kolkata and at large.
The nightspots in the city are growing as more and more people come
to beat the chill of the night. These places have become important
also because of the courtship practices by young people. The urban
and elite stratification are gone. It is party time and everyone is
invited. The growing popularity of such places owes to the fact that
the average spending power in the metropolitan cities have increased
to a good lot.
The city also has many art and culture centres wherein performances
are regularly hosted. The city as such caters to both the
materialistic as well the aesthetic parts of its population.
