The Park- Kolkata

March 16, 2010

Park Kolkata

The Park Kolkata built in 1967 on the famous arterial Park Street of the city, recently got a trendy uplift from Conran & Partners .

Guests enter through the street cafe and enter a world full of myriad images being projected on the street on plasma screens. Overlooking this street is the cafe with its uber-chic urban decor. The small lobby is highlighted by a dramatic mauve curtain and discoball lamps adding in to the style quotient and further extends into a seating area with iconic chairs thrown in good measure.

Wonderful experiments in lighting can be seen all over the hotel. Especially in the lobby with its illuminated white glass floor and flowing sculptural ceiling made from clear Perspex rods of varying lengths. Inside the lifts, LED panels will create a psychedelic light show for the journey up or down.

Highly recommended when in Kolkata. Experience a time-capsule effect as you walk from the charming, warm colonial streets of the city into the ultra modern, hip Park. High on style, it is one of the places that instantly rubs on a little of it on you as well!
