Omotesando Koffee to open in Bangkok
Upscale Tokyo cafe Omotesando Koffee may have closed its original location in Japan – but it survives in other markets and will soon be launched in Bangkok, Thailand.
The cafe has been signed up by Siam Piwat to take space in Siam Paragon shopping centre, amidst up-market furniture stores on level 3, reports Time Out Bangkok.
In Tokyo, Omotesando Koffee was renowned for serving espresso-style coffees from a 3m x 3m space inside a Japanese house. It closed in 2015 when the building was demolished.
Founder Eiichi Kunitomo has opened a new cafe in the same spot (but new building) under the name Koffee Mameya.
Omotesando Koffee has outlets in Hong Kong and Singapore and another store is planned for the UK after the Bangkok opening.
