Last week I was in Hong Kong for a short break, and I am so glad I was able to stop by After School. A small cafe in Causeway Bay, After School used to be a work space for designers and a cafe for the public, but the work space has now moved out. The cafe remains as a multi-use space for events, and a side room sells domus and artit magazines.
The space is lovely. School-style desks (with tilt tops) make the tables, paired with matching ladder back chairs. The menus are printed on blue books (exam-style), there’s a piano by the entry, and the vibe is laid back, open and airy. I adore creative spaces that serve a combination of uses, and After School accomplishes this beautifully, without feeling over-designed.
