The city of joy will bring nothing but joy to you. From hogging over the Bengali sweets to enjoying the tram rides, you might want to hop in to a club to end your perfect day even more perfectly. Kolkata has a rocking night life and was once the party capital of India. You shall never be bored of the wide variety of night clubs found here. In 2010, a curfew of 11 pm was put on all the clubs but it did not stop people from enjoying their nights to the fullest. However, not many clubs follow the curfew time anymore. Put on your best dress and your most comfortable shoes to go out and make your night a memorable one. If you are here on a vacation, try not to miss all of these spectacular clubs of Kolkata.
