Inspired by the spring jazz of Park Street (Calcutta) between the 50s-70s. We’ll show you how the Bengalis party
Following the huge success of our Fitzrovia original, we are exporting our unique Bengali home dining concept, Calcutta Street, south of the river. Located in the heart of Brixton, we are all set to open this June with a markedly different vibe to that of the original. Whereas Fitzrovia is all about casual dining in a relaxed, cosy and homely atmosphere, much like Shrim’s family home in Kolkata’s Gariahat Road, Brixton is inspired by the rather livelier neighborhood in which it finds itself, evokes memories of the city’s Park Street of a generation or so ago. Calcutta Street Brixton is a tribute to the artists of Calcutta like Pam Crain crooning at Blue Fox in the 1950s, or Usha Uthup at Trincas a decade later. We have gone to great length to source original photographs of musicians and artists from that decade or even the current generation. Walls are decorated with posters featuring iconic works by Bengali film maker, Satyajit Ray, and memorabilia from the notable artists who brought the swing to Park Street.
