India Today - - SIMPLY KOLKATA -

While all five- star ho­tels have a 24- hour cof­fee shop, it is rare for one to have a lounge ded­i­cated to only bev­er­ages and light bites. Lux­u­ri­ous and rare va­ri­eties of teas, sin­gle ori­gin cof­fees and deca­dent pas­tries on the menu make the Prom­e­nade Lounge in Taj Ben­gal is a spe­cial one among the crowd. Adorned with art­works by young Kolkata artists, you can also some­times spot a painter brush­ing away zeal­ously.

MUST TRY Try the sin­gle ori­gin clas­sic Ja­maican Blue Moun­tain, re­puted to be the best cof­fee in the world. For teas, take a whiff of the spe­cially cu­rated col­lec­tion that houses ev­ery­thing from Makaibari Oo­long to Ha­ti­mara Strong Tea from As­sam.

MUNCH THIS Try the Kolkata- style lamb cut­lets or clas­sic cau­li­flower and green peas sin­gara.

PEO­PLE WATCH You can bump into the crème de la crème of the so­ci­ety.

IN­SIDER TIP The Prom­e­nade Lounge also houses a dis­play of the ho­tel’s patis­serie. Don’t miss out on the de­li­cious day’s spe­cial!
