Azaad Wine Shop

An institution by now in Karachi and perhaps the most famous of all the liquor stores aka wine shops in the city, Azaad seems to be the place where half of Defence and Clifton make a stop every Saturday night. What I particularly like about the place is its egalitarianism: you don’t need to shell out a couple of thousand to a bootlegger nor do you have to wait to chill your beer. And best of all it reveals the demand for alcohol in this country, making a mockery of Bhutto’s self-serving ban in 1977.
