Kolkata is admired for its old-world charm. And retaining that charm within a modern setting is an art that can enchant every aesthete. Mud- The Retro Cafe in South Kolkata exactly does that. A run-down building has been transformed into this Instaworthy space that looks like a slice from the time when Kolkata was Calcutta. With antique wall clocks, a golden gramophone, mud plates, tall mirrors and more, the cafe holds a retro vibe, yet is strikingly contemporary.
