Kapil Mohan, the man behind Old Monk {our favorite winter drink}, has passed away. Here are a a few atmospheric places in Kolkata you can hit up to raise a toast {bonus: they serve the dark rum for under INR 100}.

Hotel Broadway

The Chandni Chowk hotel is known for its cheap booze. You can score Old Monk for INR 50 for a small and INR 80 for a large. The dive bar has been helping us get drunk without burning a hole in our wallets since 1937.

Park Street’s iconic bar serves a chhota Old Monk for just INR 73 and a bada for INR 130. This Kolkata fave is known for cheap alcohol, beef steaks and a no-frills and no-nonsense attitude when it comes to food and service.

Chhota Bristol

This ‘as cheap as it comes’, men-only, so-Kolkata bar in Esplanade is where you can score Old Monk for just INR 38 and INR 56 {for small and large respectively}. Uncomplicated, non-fussy, packed with regulars {who range from college students to lawyers and everyone in-between}, this old chaotic joint is full of character.

Score Old Monk and Old Monk Gold Reserve for INR 89 at this fusion Bengali joint {it was recently ranked by CNN among the Top 50 Restaurants in India}. They also use Old Monk in their ‘Just Bohemian’ cocktails — yum! If you need something to keep you warm and toasty this winter, that’s what you need to down. Their Death By Chocolate Dessert also comes with a generous dose of Old Monk.
