In Boeung Keng Kang 1 (BKK1), the district is incredibly crowded by coffee stores. Lately, Brown Coffee has opened a new outlet at Raintree, which is branded as Cambodia’s first boutique workspace. Located on Preah Ang Duong Boulevard (just behind the Cambodian Canadia Tower), the new workspace is surrounded by Phnom Penh’s commercial banks. It’s pretty much close to the Central Market, the Riverside, Wat Phnom, and the Vattanac Capital Tower. However, it’s about 10-15 minute drive from Boeung Keng Kang 1 (depends on the traffic). This location sits in between the crowded BKK1 and the isolated, quiet Tuol Kouk District. Inside the Brown Raintee, it looks very basic. The space isn’t as large as other Brown store. You may also notice the art installation by Cambodian artist Pich Soheap. Most of the customers are business professionals sipping their coffee latte. The outer space is for those who smoke cigarette.
Brown Raintree’s grand opening happened just last month. So it’s one of the latest openings of the coffee chain this 2016. More new locations are in the pipeline. With this super strategic location, it makes it tough for Starbucks Coffee to quickly expand. Perhaps, the Vattanac Capital Tower is an ideal location for a new Starbucks to come compete in this central business and banking district or prime commercial location.
