Sector 1, Saltlake in Kolkata is home to many cosy cafes and gorgeous pubs. But did you know about this hidden gem perched high on the 8th floor of the marvellous Golden Tulip hotel? Noir, the open-air sky bar is loved for many reasons- the spacious rooftop, sassy cocktails, sumptuous food, soothing live music and the sparkling jacuzzi. You can grab a juice and talk for hours with your friends or bae ( plan up a romantic date maybe) for hours while drenching your feet inside the cool water of the jacuzzi and looking at the breathtaking skyline of Saltlake.
A Date-Worthy Ambience, Right Under The Open Sky
If there is one place in the heart of Kolkata where you can take your boo for that perfect first date, that definitely has to be Noir. Unlike most pubs, the music isn’t too loud here, so you can relax at your own comfort. The music, in fact, is very soothing. Live performers lift up the moods of the guests with their heartwarming guitar chords. The eatery has two different spaces- the sitting lounge and the elevated jacuzzi. One can enjoy food and drinks in the grub lounge, but by the jacuzzi, only juices are allowed.
All That You Can Eat!
Coming to food, they serve delectable Indian and Italian dishes, along with some amazing desserts. From their Rajasthani Fare, you can try out the Kadhi Pakodi, Dal Bati Churma and Gatta Masala. We absolutely loved the Classic Baked Pasta and Barbeque Chicken Pizza from their Italian options.
And you’ll fall in love with their combos too. Our favourite was the non-vegetarian tikki platter comprising 2 pieces of Chicken Shami Kebab, 2 pieces of Tawa Murgh, 2 pieces of Mutton Seekh Kebab and 2 pieces of Baby Laccha Paratha. The guys have got a veg kebab platter too. Love prawns? Nosh on their Risotti Gamberi, which is Italian rice with prawn.
Soul-Quenching Mocktails, Shakes And Cocktails
The sky bar serves a wide array of drool-worthy mocktails. From Sharp Shark, Money Penny, Stone Fish Camouflage and Deep Blue Sea to Lavender Orange Lash, Green Apple Colada and Granite Cobbler, the list is really really long. Think shakes, you can order their Shaka Laka La shakes with Kitkat Crumbs, Oreo Crumbs, Mango Crumbs, Strawberry Crumbs and more. Their bar menu has head-spinning variants of Vodka, Gin, Rum, Irish Whisky, Scotch Whisky and more. Among cocktails, you can choose from Rusty Nail, Screw Driver, Mint Julep, Cuba Libra, Tequila Sunrise and more. And yes, they serve hookahs too.
Noir remains open from 1 PM to 11:45 PM every day. You can hop into the place any time to enjoy some feasting and boozing amid its chilled-out ambience. The place will leave you impressed and spellbound for sure. Meanwhile, here’s a virtual tour of Kolkata from the comfort of your couch:
