A favourite haunt for the city’s hip crowd, F Bloc is Kolkata at its ubercool best. An underground store, it is perfect to pick up para- phernalia that ooze ‘ cool quotient.’ Rows of tees line the shelves in the front section of the store and cartoons and acrylic abstracts find space on the fabrics. The latest addition, which are the couples’ T- shirts are creating quite a flutter among lovebirds in the city too. A gigantic statue and several miniature figurines of characters from the film Predators adorn the store space even as trance, electronic and house music alternates in the background. Pick up framed pages from comics and posters that stand in one corner or walk through the narrow passageway inside. However, the best bit is reserved for the last— the ultraviolet zone that has T- shirts, caps, bags and a host of accessories that emit a fluorescent glow and are perfect for the party hours. Finding the store can be a challenge but once you step inside the green door studded with Integrated Circuit chips, it makes the hunt worth it.
