Frere Hall is one of the few well-preserved buildings from the days of the British Raj that still exists in Karachi. It was built in the honor of Sir Henry Bartle Edward Frere (1815–1884), who was known for promoting economic development in Karachi. The Hall is located between Abdullah Haroon Road and Fatima Jinnah Road in the middle of two lawns which extended till the roads.

Looking into the history, out of twelve designs submitted for hall, the one by Clair Wilson was chosen and construction started in 1863 and it was opened by Samuel Mansfield, the Commissioner of Sind in 1865. The hall was built in the Venetian Gothic style with yellowish Karachi limestone and red and grey sandstones and around the hall are two lawns originally known as 'Queen's Lawn' and 'King's Lawn which were renamed as Bagh-e-Jinnah after the independence of Pakistan.
