On of the most bustling hub of Kolkata happens to be Park Street. Park Street, also known as Mother Teresa Sarani, sees its roots in the British Raj, and till date continues to hold a much urban-centric chic culture. High rise colonial structure building,  old school pubs add om to the charm of this place.  Amongst all the Bengali chaos this place sees a charm that can’t be missed. The street gets its name after the private deer park that was built by Sir Elijah Impey — India’s first Chief Justice. Apart from all the buildings like Queen’s Mansion, Loreto College, the street also sees many landmark restaurants like Flury’s Bakery, Oly Pub, Trincas and more. 

Quoting Vir Sanghvi he had said “Were you alive when Trincas rocked, Usha Uthup and Pam Crain crooned and it seemed like Park Street was the centre of the universe? I was”.
