One of the most famous names of Albania’s music industry, alternative rock legend Bojken Lako is busy promoting and supporting up-and-coming young rockers lately. He takes a break to tell IntoAlbania how he spends his time between work and leisure in Tirana.
I prefer to have my morning coffee anywhere near my house. I don’t have a specific place as where I have my coffee simply marks the first stop of a new day.
Bulza Production Studio, where I get together with friends and colleagues, not just to work but to catch up.
The hills by the lake (Kodrat e Liqenit). I love running but am, unfortunately, too often busy with other engagements.
Go-to lunch restaurant
A quick lunch at Hallall (fast-food chain)
Dish in a local restaurant
My favorite traditional dish is chicken with stuffing and, as for restaurants, I would pick Diplomat 2 and Fishop.
Happy hour drink and place
Hemingway Tirana. If I were still drinking, I would order my favorite, a vodka tonic.
Those intense moments, when you reach a goal you have been working very hard for, bring me a great sense of satisfaction.
All the concerts with local and international performers that are organized in Albania.
Go-to dinner restaurant:
I really like the New Bazaar for the unique cuisine you can find in the places there, especially Inshanoo and Hummus Bar.
I don’t go often but, when I do, I pop my head in Lollipop Dance Club.
