    The launch of Street 1 Cafe at the Diplomatic Enclave

    Once known as the ‘dead’ city, Islamabad is quickly changing its persona as more and more eateries are opening around the capital. The Street 1 Café from Kohsar Market now has another outlet in the exclusive Diplomatic Enclave: a two-storey café with a modern finish and an outdoor garden seating, which is a welcome change as it is something absent in most restaurants of Islamabad.

     As the guests enjoyed the complimentary hors d'oeuvres and fresh juices, Zoe Viccaji kept the crowd wholly engrossed with her amazing renditions of age-old songs coupled with some of her own singles like “Mera Bichra Yaar”. From singing songs of Nazia Hassan to Michael Jackson, Zoe’s energy levels were sky high and her performance was incredible to say the least. The café, despite its size, was swarming with people as they all gathered around Zoe, entranced by the music. In the meanwhile, the chefs prepared fresh crepes and paninis, which were mouth-wateringly good, and one couldn’t possibly leave without having two or maybe three of those. 

    Once Zoe ended her performance, fans gathered around her, admired her music, and had their photographs taken with her. A well-organized event, the launch of the café was by all means a spectacular success!
