Skinny Mo’s Jazz Club
Kolkata’s new bar that’s dedicated to jazz, Skinny Mo’s Jazz Club in Kalighat is a cosy space set in a restored 1920s Art Deco building. Regular live performances and a strong food menu make for satisfying evenings here. On the ground floor of the building is Omo Bistro & Enoteca, and on the first floor, Mono, a boutique that pays tribute to its home city by bringing together a whole host of designers from Kolkata.

Located rather fittingly in an old 1920s Art Deco building that has been tenderly restored, on the corner of a sleepy south Calcutta Street, the quiet entrance belies the happy bustle of the top floor where the club is located. It is not until you are halfway up the stairs that strains of jazz and laughter waft down enticingly, and this speakeasy air adds to the charm of the place.
