We all have witnessed the scenes from Old-English movies where two or more friends summon in a countryside pub or bar to have a good laugh clasping a bottle of beer or a glass of whiskey. These scenes often made our face sparkled with pleasure and excitement and let’s be honest, we too always want to be a part of such chilling scenes.
“Friendship is sitting over a drink and forgetting the worries in life” – a very common quote depicting the true colours of friendship but what if we pair this with some lip- smacking dishes! Yes, the whole combination is enough to make us feel on cloud 9. But this dreamy blend often costs a lump sum amount in Kolkata which is hard for the college-goers who are in the constant hunt for places to spend quality time with their pals in a reasonable budget.
Keeping all your party needs in mind, Abhishek Chamaria, with cross functional work experience across various industry and an alumnus of Boston University Business School, presents us with “The Ministry of Booze”. This place is enough to bring a curve on the faces of all the Kolkata Gastronomes and especially, the party lovers. Ministry of Booze offers us a wonderful combination of food, alcohol, shisha and last but not the least, an in house DJ, that too in a pocket-friendly budget. What else would you wishfor?
Located in Newtown, this “Restro Pub” possesses a very minimalistic yet chiq décor with an open bar. They offer two types of sitting arrangements, one is a wooden table surrounded by wooden bar stools and another is cozy sofa sets complemented with wheeled tables. Both of these arrangements are perfect for having a fun talk accompanied by your favorite booze. The bulbs hanging from the ceiling and round liquor bottle cap decor on the wall give the place a rustic look. The elegant “MOB” design done on the white wall with stretched ropes flanked by guns looks basic yet magnificent. To give this place an organic hue, they have perfectly set up the hanging plants and few plants in the tub as well. Not only this, but the MOB also has a live bar counter!
Besides having an elegant décor, they also present us with multi-cuisine food to indulge in.

When asked about Abhishek’s passion, he says, “I, myself is a party freak and understand the worth of a good place. I have always been passionate about providing people with a location that can treat their taste buds with the best of dishes and beverages, along with a top-notch service, so that they can come out from their monotonous busy schedules and have fun with calm minds, and most importantly, without worrying about the cheque at the end. I guess this is what pulled me more towards the inception of this place. I wish to grow a chain of my dream by opening a
few more outlets of MOB and I am sure, we will be able to do it very soon!”
