About Park Street, Kolkata

Park Street was previously called the Burial Ground Road and has been officially recorded as the Mother Teresa Sarani. Park Street is Kolkata’s most iconic and thronged destination. Without it, the city of Joy is only half joyous. It is a bridging link between the Kolkata of Warren Hastings and the Kolkata of Buddha. It connects the British-era memories to the colonial structures that adorn the corridors. The development has been from the west to the east; if you happen to take the road, you will observe how Park Street is a blend of luxury and the working-class. Glittering with shops and eateries, it passes through what was once Sir Elijah Impey’s deer park and is more like a lifeline of the entire city. It is where a prolific nightlife begins in the city. It is the place where India’s first nightclubs were born. It is also a home to the country’s first departmental store – Hall & Anderson.

This is the place, which introduced Indian to hamburgers. It had the country’s first proper ice cream parlour. Park Street was once the dream destination of the elites who would come here to shop and dine. The street defines luxury living and extravaganza. It is the very epitome of class and sophistication. Considered as the dining destination of Kolkata, it has often been tagged as the ‘Food Street’ and even ‘The Street That Never Sleeps.’ Connecting Chowringhee Road to Park Circus, Park Street is most vibrant near Mullick Bazar. It is also the place where the most prominent roads of Kolkata originate and intersect, including Camac Street, Loudon Street, Wood Street, Middleton Row, Russell Street, Rawdon Street, Free School Street, AJC Bose Road, Rafi Ahmed Kidwai, Sayed Amir Ali Avenue, and Darga Road.
