Ah, the iconic Breakfast at Tiffany's. If you’ve ever wanted to recreate any of the timeless film’s classic scenes yourself, now you can here in Shanghai.
Located in the prestigious Hong Kong Plaza, Tiffany & Co. has redesigned its two-storey flagship store and is now the largest Tiffany store in Asia. The first floor’s modern decor and teal-and-white colour scheme welcome customers as glass displays showcase a full range of Tiffany & Co. products from jewellery to home accessories.
Situated on the upper level of the store is Mainland China's first Tiffany Blue Box Café. The floor-to-ceiling glass windows offer a great view of the surroundings, while the dining area features a glass-enclosed area where you can peek down onto the entrance hall below.
Though it’s ‘only’ a café, Tiffany's Blue Box serves more than just coffee. It offers afternoon tea sets and sweets as well as other more savoury Western fare from pancakes to steak and lobster, plus desserts and a variety of cocktails.
If you’re planning to visit the café, you’ll need to make a reservation via its official WeChat ID 'tiffanyandcoofficial' (it’s all in Chinese fyi), though you may have to wait until 2020 – slots are fully booked until the end of this year.
