Adjacent to the Badshahi Mosque in Lahore, The Coocos Den owned by Artist Iqbal Hussian is a delightful place to sample traditional dishes from the Punjab whilst being amidst the historically rich area of the Heera Mandi district of lahore.
This is a really great intimate cocktail bar run by women who won't stand for anything they don't like. If you're too loud, they'll ask you to quieten down. The drinks here are as delicious as the decor, a former antiques store, furniture left in place adding to the speak easy vibe.
I stayed here in March 2019 and it was one of the best experiences of my life. The food at atmosphere here is amazing as is the decor and the fact it's right on the beach. If you like to surf - it's a great place to stay to do that - I went surfing every morning and sunset - just hired an inexpensive board and got on those waves - I'm a beginner and it had the perfect waves for my skills or lack thereof. The staff were so friendly and helpful - Literally can not wait to go back!!

I'm from Cornwall. Anyone who knows me knows that I rant on about Cornwall. The longer I stay away from Cornwall (in London) the more I seem to rant about it. But I still like to go back as often as possible to do crazy stuff like cast metal furniture on the beach or carve chairs out of Cornish granite in the various quarries dotted around the countryside.
Otherwise you will find me in my studio in deepest darkest Tottenham whittling a lump of material into a spoon or chair.
