Singapore welcomes our first Coco Chanel Cafe. We managed to RSVP for the first slot on the first day of opening. Be prepared to queue & wait even if you have RSVP. We went at 11am to join in the queue but shortly after 10 minutes, we were told that we were given the time slot at 12.40pm to enter the cafe. I’m thankful that they did not make us queue for the whole hour. Instead, we went for breakfast before coming back again.
Do take note that there are no beverages & desserts being sold in this cafe. If you have RSVP, you can redeem your complimentary drink. With any purchase made, you are able to redeem a dessert.
At this cafe, you get to preview the Cruise Chanel collection too. I was told that some items are out of stock in their boutique outlet so this will be your chance to grab the items that you wanted. Be quick to grab any Beauty Advisor if you are keen to try any items. My beauty advisor is Qiu Ling & she’s a very nice lady. All I wanted was to try a lip color but she touched up my makeup for me & I don’t feel any pressure from her to purchase items too.
There are limited edition items being given out with purchases too. For spending above SGD180 & above, you get the full set of 4 magnets. For spending above SGD300 & above, you get a limited edition Chanel lipstick thumbdrive. I’m in love with the thumbdrive & I added in a perfume just to hit SGD300 to get the thumbdrive.
The cafe will be open for 9 days in Singapore from 08th April to 16th April. It’s located at Dhoby Ghaut Green. Do drop by and take a look at this first ever Chanel cafe in Singapore.
