1969 is a unique themed-based restaurant that aspires to relive the golden 60’s of Pakistan. Established in 2010, this upbeat and colorful restaurant appeals to guests of all ages and offers Pakistani and wand exciting dining experience. The idea of making a sixties theme restaurant was to bring back the green revolution and to project the softer image of Pakistan. In the 60’s, Pakistan was a modern growing Islamic country as depicted from the fashion, showbiz and industries of that time.

Apart from the tasty food and genuine personalized service, we want our guests to relive the progressive Pakistan. 1969 is the only theme restaurant depicting the golden era of Pakistan which also incorporates beauty, serenity and traditional hospitality.

The inspiration behind the restaurant was to show our youth how modern and progressive we have been and can be. The concept and interior decor are credited to the efforts of the young owners who put in their personal love and attention into the detailing of 60’s design and bringing with it the old cultural feel. It is a privilege and pleasure to have guests over the age of 40 come to eat and feel comfortable in our unique atmosphere. However, anyone who loves nature, good food and who can appreciate a down-to-earth staff will enjoy dining at 1969.

2008 was the year the idea of 1969 was conceived. The partners decided to create something beautiful, exciting and simply traditional. A place which would attract all genders and age groups. The creators found an exclusive place barren and abandoned, an old Hawaili of Rajjgans. Suddenly the idea became a reality  and therefore kept history alive. Thus the impressions of Golden Pakistan were recreated in a restaurant. Immaculately decorated with simplicity, comfort and serenity.
