Emporium Suites Redesigned Coffee Corridor


Work has finally finished on the complete redevelopment of the Coffee Corridor in the Emporium Suites.  Around two months was spent on the project, and the result has already proved popular with regular patrons.

The sound of hammers and drills has been replaced with relaxing jazz music, and the wooden panels and canvas sheets have been removed to reveal the stylish improvements.  There are two large coffee shop franchises at either end of the corridor, and a central area has been designated as a relaxation zone.


Diners now have a great choice of comfortable seating when spending an hour kicking back with their favourite coffee and sandwich selection from Starbucks and Au Bon Pain.


Visitors are still afforded lovely views of the adjacent 12 acre Benjasiri Park from full length windows that look out over the verdant gardens and sparkling lake.
