CAFE USED TO BE A MEETING ROOM
Before Adam took over his cafe space, it used to be a corporate meeting room that was open for bookings. “When I first viewed this place it was a dealbreaker for me, ’cos there was no kitchen,” he recalled. But he returned for a second viewing in the evening, where he saw the sunset from the rooftop. “The view blew me away,” he said.
The serviced apartment building, which also functions like a tourist hotel, had a pantry on the 10th floor just below the rooftop. Convinced on the location’s potential, Adam got approval from the building management to convert the pantry to a commercial kitchen. “I retrofitted it with an exhaust hood at my own cost so that the kitchen is functional,” he shared.
