Bangkok’s new mixed-use lifestyle complex Samyan Mitrtown is opening this Friday, which means that the stores, cafes, restaurants and House Samyan cinema that also occupy the new 222,000sqm space are getting their big debut that day, too — including the biggest branch of Muji in Thailand to date, which will include a “coffee corner.”
Muji Coffee Corner is an extension of Muji, the Tokyo-born lifestyle store with a minimalist design concept at its core. We hear that the new cafe will make its coffee using beans sourced from Doi Tung, a mountainous area in Chiang Rai province.
So, it looks like this new coffee corner is less likely to be a full-on Muji Cafe & Meal, which currently operates in Japan and Singapore, serving food and desserts using simple cooking methods. It’s unknown if the new Bangkok branch will expand into the restaurant concept at a later date.
Samyan Mitrtown is located on Rama IV Road can can be reached from MRT Samyan’s exit No. 2.
