Service Shoes In Bahria Town

In October, I’ve informed you about the opening of two new shoe outlets in Bahria Town. At that time, Shoe n Shoes was already opened and Shoe Arena was about to open. Both the shops are located on the main boulevard. Click here for the details. 

 

Here is another quick update for those who often visit Servis shoes. A name that needs no introduction. And when it comes to shoe brands, who do not recognize Servis in the shoe industry? They have just entered in Bahria Town Lahore. Store of Servis shoes is similar to Borjan and Bata. As it can be seen in the above picture, it consists on two floors. I saw this flagship store of Servis yesterday. I do know lately that a renovation work is under process out there but I don’t know exactly when it was opened in Town. I think they opened it without any proper advertisement or maybe I didn’t notice it before. 

 

However, you have now Servis, Borjan and Bata. All of them are located at the same location next to each other on the main boulevard near to Talwar Chowk. 

Recent Closings

Shutting down of any type of business in Bahria Town isn’t a new thing for us. Indeed and sadly, winding up a commercial activity throughout in Bahria Town has become a ritual and clearly, it wouldn’t be stopped in near future. Hundreds of venus had already closed their doors in Town, re-located or still struggling to secure their market. I think there is not a single angle to discuss why so many names are striving or even big names couldn’t make it through. And, this topic needs to be researched thoroughly and I will write on it in details soon anytime.

 

However, here on this blog, we’re keeping a regular tally of which businesses are opened and which are closed. You can take a look at all previous posts to get the idea of opening and closing ratio in Town. Well, in recent days, I’ve become acquainted with more businesses which are now offline permanently. Here are the details:

 

Shavihut Restaurant:

Shavi Hut had opened their second branch in Bahria Town almost a year ago. The first branch is still operational somewhere in Izmir Town. Bahria Town’s branch has wiped out last month. Shavihut restaurant was located at main road AA Block, Sector D, near to Surahi Chowk and next to Pizza 2 Go restaurant. 

 

Cafe Rockstar: 

I remember that they did not even advertise much at the time of its opening. Only a few signboards around Metro Gulf Centre. So, it’s obvious they couldn’t manage to reach out to the residents properly and eventually ended up shutting down. Rockstar was opened at the start of July this year. It was located at Metro Gulf Centre, Tulip Ext Block, Sector C, near to Bahria Golf & Country Club. 

 

Am-Pm Salon: 

I must say, they had put a lot of effort and investment in their shop. It was one of the best barber shops in Bahria Town with an impressive unique interior. But unfortunately, this shop was closed a month ago. They opened it last year in November and located at the main boulevard near to Jamin Java Cafe. 

 

WU Mart:

Though there are plenty of departmental stores that are operational in Bahria Town and normally managed to survive. But WU mart has closed its door after a few months of opening. It was located at the main boulevard, Sector C, near to the Green Pharmacy and Agha Khan laboratory. 

 

Milk House & King Tobacco:

Milk House and King Tobacco were located at CC Block, Sector D. Both are closed now and also opened at the same month of April. 

New Shoe Outlets

Anyone who is a shoe-addict will agree that there are very limited options of shoe brands and lacking behind in Bahria Town’s market. I think especially for men, you can’t be dependent on just two to three names. If you will visit the market, zyou will find out that only Datchi and Borjan Shoes are dominating and somehow you can also consider Bata in the list of shoe brands. Castilo and Urban Sole were there for us, but its been a long time both the names departed from Town. Apart from the above-mentioned names, you may get footwears at a few clothing brands. Anyway, there is now going to the addition of two footwear shops in Bahria Town. Though these names aren’t famous ones. But yes, you will have more options to shop!

 

Shoe n Shoe:

Actually, Shoe n Shoe isn’t a new name in Town. It first opened at the main boulevard near Talwar Chowk under the name of Mega Shoes and operational for more than two years. They closed this store a couple of days ago. 

 

Well, yesterday, I’ve spotted it again at a new location and saw the front board with the same name and logo as the previous outlet. They’re now stocking up and all set to open this outlet. Maybe in a day or two, the store will officially open. Shoe n Shoe will be a roof for all renowned brands. You can check the products on their website and place your order there too. Here are the contact details and address of Shoe n Shoe:

 

Location:

Shoe n Shoe is now located at the main boulevard, near Clock Chowk and Bahria Grand Jamya Mosque.

Shoe Arena Opening Soon:

Shoe Arena just placed the opening soon banner and finishing the store’s renovation work. It will take around 15 to 20 days to open. I do not have much information right now. But I can guess by its name that this footwear store will also sell the products of famous brands. You will hear from us more after the opening of Shoe Arena. 

 

Location:

Shoe Arena would be active on the main boulevard, Sector C. Next to J.S bank and below Bin Bakar Electronics. 

Fri-Chiks Is Active

I already wrote about the opening of Fri-Chiks restaurant here. Well, the building they have selected didn’t require much time for further renovation and for interior work. Fri-Chiks have placed plenty of road-streamers in each Sector of Bahria Town for the announcement of its official opening. The grand opening of the restaurant was held on Saturday, 30th June.

Coffee Indulgence!

It is time for January, February and then April and sorely winters will be gone. Anyways, we still have plenty of winter days and nights left to make it last longer before the summers start. There are many things that makes winter warmth more perfect. But, the only thing that comes into our mind while thinking winter season is ‘Coffee’. One of the most enthralling essential, to start your day off with it or your nights. It is the perfect therapy in winters to bring out the best in you, stimulates your productivity, and make your vision straight and creative!

 

In winters it is a much needed item for coffee addicts. Whether you enjoy your coffee thick, light, creamy or frothy, it does not matter. Because it’s a famous saying, “ a bad cup of coffee is still better than no coffee”.  Once you start drinking coffee, it completely take over. Obviously, there is no in-between, either you’re a coffee addict or you’re not. So, for all those coffee enthusiasts, its that time of winters, where you can enjoy your coffee while staying in Bahria Town.

Bahria Town has a weak game to provide best and leading names of coffee brands for its residents yet. Certainly, when it comes to cafes and coffee rooms, Bahria Town have very bounded choices as compared to DHA or Gulberg. In city Lahore, we can effortlessly find out many top-tier names for coffee shops. Like, Gloria Jeans, Mocca Coffee, Second Cup, Cinnabon, Expresso, CTC, Butlers Chocolate Cafe etc, a never-ending list of Cafes, that I couldn’t write all of the names here. Well, for the time being in Bahria Town, the availability of coffee options are just like, few drops in an ocean and you have to muddle through the limited coffee options.

 

But, however, I’ve gathered a few names that are currently the only choices for us. Most residents are surely well-acquainted with these names.

 

Panini Cafe:

 

Bahria Grand Hotel & Resort in Bahria Town Lahore has three different restaurants and cafes including Golden Palm Restaurant, Cafe Grand, Panini Cafe and a separate In-Room dining. However, most of the residents are unfamiliar with the Panini Cafe. It is specially designed to cater the needs of coffee and tea lovers with a perfect environment. Panini Cafe has both indoor and a patio sitting facing fountains and greenish environment to enjoy your coffee in this winters.

 

Brazilian Coffee in Panini Cafe:

Brazil’s coffee is in the list of those countries where the taste of its beans and the production of coffee is enormous. Famous for its espresso blends and high-quality flavors. Well, the reason for writing Brazilian Coffee is that Panini Cafe has a specialty to offer you a variety of Bazilian Coffee flavor at very low rates. Perfectly hand-crafted coffees, luxury environment and still the prices are cheaper than other renowned coffee shops. The average price of coffee out there is Rs. 150/- to 250/- excluding tax. So, if you haven’t visit Panini Cafe than it’s a must visit place in Bahria Town with your friends and family!

Now, there are around 12 franchises of Gloria Jean’s coffee have been established in Lahore. In Bahria Town, Gloria Jean’s Coffee is the only international chain and oldest coffee shop, opened in 2013 by signal Group.

 

Though, an Irish coffee shop Bagel’s Bar was also opened at Talwar Chowk in 2014, in comparison with Gloria Jean’s Coffee. It was located near to Gloria Jeans. But, unfortunately, after few months, it was permanently shut down. So, if we talked about international chains of the coffee shop, then Gloria Jean’s Coffee is the only option in Town so far.

Gloria Jean’s Coffee menu card is full of all kinds of coffees. They’ve three categories of coffee according to the size Small, Regular and Large. The price range of coffee normally starts from Rs. 250/- to Rs. 400/-. It has both indoor and outdoor sittings.

Jammin Java:

Jammin Java Cafe is one of the earliest coffee shops in Pakistan. In Lahore, it has 3 to 4 branches. One of its branches is also located in Bahria Town. So, Jammin Java is another option to have a coffee within Bahria Town. The price of its coffee is around Rs. 250/- to Rs. 380/-.

Because it was specifically designed to provide Coffee & Shakes for the residents. The menu of its coffee is typical and very limited options are available in coffee. The prices of its coffee mug are Rs. 199/- to Rs. 280/-. But, yes, the outdoor and indoor sitting of Honey beans cafe will double your coffee treat!
