Port Grand Food and Entertainment Complex
Port Grand Food and Entertainment Complex is a recreational area built in Karachi, Sindh, Pakistan along the waterfront of the 19th century Native Jetty Bridge that connects the Karachi Port Trust to Keamari. The complex is a hub of shopping, dining, cultural and coastal recreational activities in the city.
Port Grand is located on Napier Mole Bridge a site that is very significant to the history of Karachi and has played a crucial role in making it the city it is today. The project stretches along 1,000 ft of Karachi's ancient 19th century Native Jetty Bridge and spreads over an area of 200,000 sq. ft.
The one kilometer bridge has been transformed into an entertainment and food enclave housing numerous eateries totaling 40,000 sq. ft of climate-controlled area and space for kiosks and 11 restaurants of exotic Pakistani and foreign food and a variety of beverages.
The anticipation of many avid food lovers finally came to an end, as the massive food and entertainment enclave at Port Grand was inaugurated by Governor Sindh Dr Ishrat-ul-Ebad Khan
Terming it a gift for Karachiites, Governor Sindh Dr Ishrat Ul Ebad predicted that Port Grand Project would serve as a catalyst for other mega entertainment projects within the city. He added that the project not only facilitated the people who were starved of recreation, it also gave them a reason to be proud of their country.
He also appreciated the efforts of the Grand Leisure Corporation for restoring the heritage site of the 19th century Native Jetty Bridge that now stands as a world class tourist attraction that is expected to attract millions of people from all over the world.
