Chai Point, which claims to be World’s largest Chai-led beverage platform, has announced its entry into Punjab’s Amritsar by opening its store at the city’s iconic Town Hall Complex near The Golden Temple. The Company also organised a Chai langar at The Golden Temple on the morning of 15th August, as a tribute for entering the holy city. Amuleek Singh Bijral, Co-founder & CEO, Chai Point, says, “We are excited to bring the Chai Point experience to a city known for its exceptional food culture. With our innovation backed myChai™ brewing systems and a wide array of food offerings, we are looking forward to delighting our customers in Amritsar with an elevated Chai led experience.”
Chai Point Amritsar is a large format store offering both indoor and outdoor seating. The premium store design and experience comprises a contemporary environment inside a historic building with careful attention given to its scale and original texture. “While staying true to the building’s typology of the space, we paid homage to the building’s former stature by using materials and furniture that are relevant to the times when it was still an active palace, a time when artisans and royalty walked the halls of this massive palace. Therefore, we found a blend of contemporary and vernacular look and a tactile mix of materials in natural finishes that bear traces of craftsmanship and serve as an appropriate base for the design. As a showcase of our multi-layered approach to design, the original walls of the building were contrasted with massive wooden panelling that frames the space at sill level,” adds Bijral.
