Disco Bakers And Sweets (often referred to as Disco Bakery) is one of Karachi’s best known landmarks. It located in Block 3, Gulshan-e-Iqbal, at the intersection of Allama Shabbir Ahmed Usmani Road and Olympian Islahuddin Road.
What’s in a name?… Disco Bakery was established in the late 1970s in Block 2, Gulshan-e-Iqbal by the Haji Abdullah family, and moved to its present location within a year. The name Disco Bakers And Sweets was coined because disco was popular then, and according to the owner, it symbolised celebration and festivity, which matched the bakery’s image because it offered mouth-watering items for festive occasions, such as birthday parties and family get-togethers. Over time, the menu has broadened and includes several types of pastries, cakes, biscuits, mithai, crisps and even burgers and pizzas.
