If there’s one place in Karachi where all the celebrities LOVE to hangout, it’s Cafe Flo.
Cafe Flo opened its doors on March 4, 1998, and was the first bistro to introduce authentic French cuisine in the city. Initially, the cafe was located inside the premises of the Alliance Française, but has since shifted to Clifton’s Block 4, off 26th Street.
This fine dining restaurant is run by Florence Villiers, and her French roots are reflected in both the decor and food.
This place is so popular among the stars that there you’re bound to bump into a few every time you visit. Here are a few examples of such rendezvous:
1. Launch Parties
Over the years, many star-studded brunches, lunches and dinners have been organised at Flo; be it the kick-off of a fashion week or reaching a milestone, everything is celebrated here.

2. Designers love this place
Every season, there is at least one collection that is launched and at least one product that is initiated at the cafe, amidst a soiree of celebrities.

3. Stars bring their friends here
Apart from formal events, celebrities choose Flo for their private gatherings as well. You can be sure to spot them here with their friends and family.
4. Celebs (and their families) love the food
The dishes that come out of the kitchen at this place are famous for giving customer the kind of gastronomic experience that keeps them coming back for more. Celebrities are no different, and are often seen grabbing a bite at the cafe.
5. There could be live music
The pretty terrace and lush trees all around the cafe create a lovely atmosphere that’s perfect an outdoor event. Making use of this – as well as the kind of crowd Cafe Flo attracts – many musical performances have been organized here over the years.
Now you know where to go when you’re in the mood for some celebrity spotting 😉
