A legend of Kolkata where drinks are the cheapest and the food prices reasonable. Be careful when you walk on the uneven floor especially after a few drinks or you might trample over the next table.
Since its a very down to earth place and has served as Kolkata's traditional water hole for decades no one looks at the decor or the old faces of the waiters who have been serving here since the beginning. You come here to get a cheap drink and that's what you get. No frills no hanky panky but very down to earth.
The best part of the place is as I remember is that the waiter pours your drink on your table to show you he is not serving short. So much for the show as I have always noticed that whenever they pour the drink their hand shake resulting in the customer getting a few extra ML of liquor. Its has a double benefit... the customer gets more and the waiter gets a heavier tip. Both are happy. Where else will you have fun like this?
Cheers Olypub.. we who grew up in Kolkata in the 60s still love you as much if not more. No trip to this old city is complete without a visit to Olypub.
Only those who visit this place 2-3 times will be sooner or later get addicted to it. One of the oldest pub in Kolkata. see more details about olypub at http://kolkatarestaurants.blogspot.in/2012/02/olypub-park-street.html
