If you live in Lahore and are thinking about venturing out for a shopping marathon for Eid, or a casual evening during the last days of Ramazan, consider heading to H-Block Market, located on Khayaban-e-Jinnah.
Eid shopping at its best… Several high-end retail stores are located in H-Block Market and you can source most Eid essentials there, be they fabrics, shoes or accessories. If you are looking for a tailor, or someone to embroider intricate patterns on your clothes to give them that Eid oomph, the Market also houses several embroidery and tailoring shops. There are also home stores where you can find the accessories you need to add a little pizzazz to your home, be they lighting fixtures, decorations or colourful cushions. While there, take the opportunity to stock up on groceries at one of the supermarkets.
Casual dining from the East and West… Over the last five years, the Market’s culinary range has expanded significantly with several eateries catering to both the desi and angrez in you and includes kababs, tikkas and shawarmas or burgers and fried chicken. Top off your meal with a few cupcakes at Frosted Fantasies, a trendy little bakery that has opened recently. If it is a fine-dining experience that you seek, MM Alam Road’s high-end restaurants are a short drive away.
The real estate take… Due to a prime location in Lahore’s upscale DHA, commercial property in
H-Block market is in high demand. Property options include standalone shops and retail space in low-rise buildings. Prices increase by 20 to 25% every year and rentals by 20 to 30%. The area is completely built-up.
In the nutshell… Thanks to an increasing number of shopping and dining options, H-Block Market is one of Lahore’s popular shopping and dining
