India Today - - SIMPLY KOLKATA -

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.
