Located strategically in the heart of the Kolkata, Zobet is the newest addition to the city’s choice of gastropubs. Set on the fourth floor of Fort Knox on Camac Street, the Victorian era-inspired gastropub has stunning interiors and offers a delectable culinary selection along with unique handcrafted beverages. At 10,000 sq ft, it is also one of the largest gastropubs in Kolkata. We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate Negroni Week than to ask Raja Malik, Zobet’s senior bartender, to whip up his own version of the Negroni for us. And he happily obliged.
