Denmark tavern, 1923, Serampore, West Bengal. natmus.dk
Serampore, near Kolkata has innumerable monuments, in particular, built by the Danish colonist. A 200 year old heritage building - a two storied structure was once a Danish Tavern, a nice water hole in the Danish colony that once attracted lots of Europeans. This old building had been lying in ruins for a pretty long time. Last year in October the restoration work began in full swing and the project cost was around Rs. 5 crores funded by the National Museum of Denmark - part of Serampore Initiative, a collective of representatives from the Denmark Museum and West Bengal government. The old tavern will be converted into riverside cafe with limited accommodation. Once the restoration work is completed, along with the eatery, there will be a lodge, catering to the visitors to this famous heritage site and the Danish ambiance would be retained that would enthuse the tourists. It is likely coffee Board would manege the cafe and set up the coffee house.
