Our favourite section is this partially open area that overlooks at a busy Park Street. Mellow lights, greens and customised furniture adds to the charm. Effingut also serves shisha and this is a great spot to enjoy the puff and soak in the Calcutta winter.

Continuing with the trend of big F&B names arriving in Calcutta, Effingut, the popular brewery from Mumbai and Pune is all set to open doors from today onwards. Located on the seventh floor of Magma House (Park Street), this is the first outlet in Eastern India and the biggest in the country till date. Spread across almost 7,500sq ft with 350 seats, various sections and ample moving space, the cocktail bar and pub has a high energy vibe to it. The interiors have been done by interior designer Minnie Bhatt. The chillspot houses many Instaworthy corners that blends edgy, quirky with comfort. “We are delighted to be bringing Effingut from Mumbai to Calcutta! To suit the local palate, the Calcutta pub boasts of a range of appetising dishes and innovative cocktails. While we are opening with the full arsenal of our signature cocktails, food and weekly events, our craft beers are what we are known for and we hope to receive our brewery licence soon. We intend to redefine the city’s pub scene by providing a relaxed space to unwind with no set rules!” said Manu Gulati (inset), founder and chief brewer, Effingut.

From plush leather to high bar chairs — there are various kinds of seating options. “We always try to pay homage to a city by capturing its essence. This section pays tribute to Calcutta through beautifully shot images of the city,” said Manu.

The menu is varied too. “It can be categorised as diverse, eclectic and done our way, offering bites that go very well with beer. One can find best of Pan Asian, Indian and Continental cuisines to some of classics that will please a foodie,” said Manu Misra, marketing head, Effingut. Effingut is all about their craft beers, but till they get the brewery licence, sip on the cocktail menu curated by Zac Abbott, head of craft mixology, Effingut. He aims to “go local and take the city’s drinking experience to another level.” From one-of-a-kind equipment to ingredients like oak chips, lapsang souchong tea, housemade kombucha to sous vide coffee, the bar counter deserves a special mention.

F&B

Zac made us try Cafe Brulee that has slow brewed espresso, the fine aroma of bitters, fresh vanilla, vodka, dark chocolate, caramelised sugar, pinch of cinnamon, nutmeg and marshmallow which are flamed with a creme brulee torch. With the chill in the air, this one is love.

Effingut’s take on Calcutta’s paturi is Grilled Fish in Banana Leaf but unlike the mustard marination, this one has a Thai marination with lemongrass, coconut and is grilled in a banana leaf. Taste? Non-spicy and yum!

If you love spicy food, what’s better than the thecha chutney? For the uninitiated, this chutney from Maharashtra mostly has green chillies, cumin, dry coconut and sesame coarsely ground in sil batta. The chicken is marinated in this and cooked till robust flavours are absorbed. This tastes great, but go for it only if you have tolerance for heat.

Dig into the South African fast food, Bunny Chow, but with a Indian twist. We tried the fiery keema bread bowl that’s best savoured when hot. There is Mac N Cheese version for vegetarians.

Ideal for a hot summer day, I Love Yuzu is a icy, refreshing sip with flavours from Eastern Asia and Indian tea. The gin-based cocktail has the tartness of yuzu puree and the subtle sweetness of honey.

A Bath with a Stranger is a star on the sip menu. Look at the presentation! Sweet yet refreshing, this gin cocktail has green tea kombucha, fresh lychee and apple notes. After day-long work, relax with the bathtub, Effingut style!

Kerala Chicken served with soft, flaky parathas will get you a taste of down South, thanks to the use of curry leaves and other spices. The juicy chicken chunks are unmissable.
