Cooco's Den - Paintings

"Cooco's Den", Often misspelled as "Cuckoo's Den", is a desi restaurant/cafe owned by an artist, Mr. Iqbal Hussain. The restaurant has a beautiful traditional building located near Badshahi Masjid and Lahore Fort. Entrance to the restaurant is not inviting but once you are in, there are lot more to see and feel.

A narrow staircase will get you to the terrace where most of the seating has been arranged. Prefer to select one close to the front corner for a clear view of outside. At night, when lights of Badshahi Masjid are lit up, a fantastic atmosphere is created and this view can only by captured from The Cooco's Den.

Usually, the restaurant is not open at day time and will require a prior booking for a dinner. Check the weather forecast the day you have planned to visit it as the restaurant's experience will not complete without the roof top dining. Cooco's Den is considered as one of the most expensive traditional menu restaurants of Lahore. Menu includes Bar.B.Q, Chicken, Mutton and Vegetable dishes. Mutton Chops, Tawa Chicken and Daal are considered favorite. With a full dining range, meal costs around 1500 Rs to 2000 Rs per person.

The restaurant is like a mini museum of art and history full of artifacts and paintings. Most of the paintings, which are painted by Mr. Iqbal, are inspired by the life of people in that area. In these paintings, an artist's eye can find sadness and sorrow.
