Through this outlet, patrons will be able to experience all the things they love about our brand whilst taking a trip down memory lane.”
He further added “We have spent months researching, refining and working to find ways to best highlight the original beauty of the building. I remember when I first walked through the small door off Kenyatta avenue and climbed up the tight stairs, I was wowed by the original grandness of the architectural design and I can’t wait for you to see it.”
