What’s it about?
Smash Street is this two-storey space dedicated to fun. Everything there, from the ceiling to the tables, is designed to fulfil one sole purpose – entertainment. It is a place where you can defeat your friends, where cheating will not lead to tears or breakups (but, it will get your some well-deserved slangs from your friends), where you can laser-shoot and virtually murder the “irritating friend”, where you can unwind and rewind to that time of your life when playing games was what you looked forward to most. And all this with some good-tasting coffee and finger food.
Who hasn’t played games like Snakes and Ladder or Uno at some point of time in their life? Everyone knows it, and so, everyone is connected to it. People may think otherwise, but, playing games is a sure-shot method of bonding. It is fun, it is carefree and it is uncomplicated. This is the experience that Smash Street offers.
Smash Street has a little something for everyone. The couch-gamers have their board games, the graphic-lovers have a huge screen dedicated to virtual gaming, and those who wish to put some physical effort into their games have things like Pool or FootPool or Laser Tag and more! And, of course, there is something for all the selfie kings and queens – A Selfie Booth.
So, basically, you just need to go there and have effortless fun!
What to eat?
The chef recommends the Pasta with Pesto Sauce and Classic Nachos. The place serves refreshing coffee and interesting drinks. If you want to put some spice in your life, do try out the Devil’s Drink.
What to do?
If you are really intent on it, then you could have a good talk with whoever is accompanying you. But, it is very difficult to not pick up any one of the enormous selection of games and just start playing. Board games like Mastermind, Taboo, Life, Battleship, Monopoly and Uno are sitting patiently in the sidelines, staring at you, waiting to be played. And, damn, are they tough to resist! I am not joking when I call this place a Board Game Lover’s Paradise.
There is a room constructed for the purpose of virtual gaming. Imagine sitting on a comfy bean bag with the necessary controls, staring at a giant screen (compared to our PC monitors) and swerving your car around. It is a phenomenal experience that every gamer should try.
There is also a Pool table for all those who like to bend, aim and strike and a Fussball table too. Now, I want to concentrate on the really innovative stuff.
1) FootPool – It is a fusion of Football and Pool. You step onto a large pool, barefoot, and instead of using a cue to pot the balls, you use your feet to score goals in the six pockets. This is a whole different level of new in Kolkata!
2) Laser Tag – Two teams enter an arena painted with neon colours and lit with UV light, and then they shoot laser guns at each other until someone emerges victorious. Tip – Don’t wear white when you go in there, you are gonna light up like a Christmas tree and become easy game. Or, make sure your opposing friends are wearing white *wink wink*.
3) Selfie Booth – The symbol of London, a red phone-booth, can be found standing in a corner, not at all inconspicuously. Inside, one can find a whole lot of props that can convert into a whole lot of ‘likes’ on Facebook if you have what it takes to click a selfie. And, obviously you do! Have a ball!
4) Three-player Air Hockey – I would like to describe this as FUN + 1.
So, put your hand up if you are interested in going to this place. I can totally visualise a sea of hands right now. 😛
What to see?
If and when you get time out from checking out all the above-mentioned wielders of awesomeness, you can check out the décor of the place. The walls are filled with thought/laughter provoking posters and it is the only place where you will find a road on the ceiling. So, if you go there and somebody asks you, “Whats up?” you can actually say – “Road.” Where else can you do that? 😛
