    The Salt House

    An open courtyard space, incredible view, minimal decor, sophisticated European food and voila! You have The Salt House, Kolkata’s finest rooftop dining space. The most loved (Insta-worthy) spot here is a wall dedicated entirely to plants in earthen pots giving the outdoor space an open vibe. If you like your share of Italian, the burnt butter gnocchi is a must-try.

    Wise Owl Steakhouse

The sunset views are to die for and, if you're lucky enough, you just might be able to see the moon rising while the sun sets over the horizon! Listen to good music, gorge on a lavish spread, sip on your favourite drink and just relax with your squad.

For some al fresco feels and panoramic views of the city, head to Mist – the rooftop bar and restaurant. For a one-of-its-kind experience, book one of the private sun house domes and watch the sun go down while enjoying a succulent fare and sipping on your favourite drink. It's also great for a date night.
