The artistic capital of India, the city of prominent intellectuals and must-have Indian experiences—this is how the proud inhabitants love to define this heritage city. Well, you surely know we are talking about Kolkata—a city bursting with dynamic cultural attractions. Let’s take you through Russel street and Park Street – Chowringhee in Kolkata to know more about the exciting shopping scenario in the city.

The central part of Kolkata near the Miadan is Chowringhe. Shakespaere Sarai, Ho Chi Minh Road, Park Street and Russel street are in this neighborhood too.

Russel Street has been named after Henry Russel, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court from 1806 to 1813. It is now renamed as Anandi Lal Podaar Sarai. The street is right behind the Bengal Club. For the uninitiated, the popular Bengal Club was once the residence of Thomas Babington Macaulay.

Popular Shops: Russel Street

A long street lined with old shops, auction houses and iconic dhabas, Russel Street is also home to branded shops. In short, this is where the old and the new Kolkata co-exist perfectly well. We recommend you to explore shopping at popular shops such as Good Companions & Ananda Sarees on this street.

Besides, Anokhi and India’s Hobby Center are some of the other well-known shops on this street.

Further, it’s a good idea to visit State Bhavans in this market. For instance, Assam and Mizoram bhavans are loved for traditional meals available at discounted rates. Likewise, Sikkim House’s Blue Poppy restaurant has some of the best momos in the city.

Also, the famous Park Street is closeby.

Catering to a wide range of budgets, these shopping places in Kolkata provide irresistible options to locals as well as tourists visiting the city.
