Westeros Dhaba, Karachi
It isn’t possible these days to be a citizen in Karachi and not ‘hang out’ or have tea at a Dhaba. Dhabas are roadside tea establishments that serve tea and other hot and cold beverages, along with different types of breads and sometimes even fast food. In recent years many vibrant and ‘new agey’ Dhabas have popped up around the city that are based on unique themes like Bob Marley, truck art, the local movie industry and Game of Thrones, which has inspired the creation on Westeros. However, what sets them apart from the strict competition is their menu. They are a modern day dhaba with a GoT twist, offering dragon stone oven baked pizzas, dragon balls and fire and chocolate brownies.

Boating and dinner at Port Grand
Karachi is blessed with a vast shoreline and it’s a must to make the most of it. If a nighttime swim at devil’s point under the full moon at 12 am is a bit too wild you can perhaps explore the waters through a boating expedition from Port Grand. The port offers a boat ride around the mangroves that line the Karachi coast, a speed boat ride and a special floating party deck when you have something special to celebrate. There is also an art lane at this sea-facing hub, where various artworks are displayed in an indoor plus outdoor gallery space. There is also a night bazar and many weekend attractions like magic shows, musical and dance performances and fire shows. Lastly, their wide array of restaurants are also worth checking out.
