First Look: Galaxy Macau's Retail Cafe Cha Bei
San Francisco-based hospitality firm Puccini Group is involved in the new tea culture-inspired cafe Cha Bei at the Galaxy Macau resort.
Cha Bei’s 5,500-square-foot open space seamlessly integrates shopping and dining. The 56-seat cafe, floral shop, tea lounge, and bar—including a kitchen designed for hosting cooking and baking classes—are all wrapped into one, offering guests and visitors a place to grab some noodles with tofu, a quick spot of tea, a sandwich, or a new pair of sunglasses.
Puccini Group’s design concept is "airy and high-spirited, as comforting and light as the cuisine served," states an announcement from the firm. "The pastel color palette with peaches, greens, and blues takes charge, while vintage teaware brings home the theme of the space, and large graphics add a playful and stylish touch. From custom banquettes and dining chairs with pops of color to 'tulip' chairs and blush-colored sofas, the variety of seating options cater to any dining need. The contemporary and luxurious lighting scheme and mint green walls complete the sophisticated, yet whimsical setting."
