The all day open house event had as theme ‘5 Minutes of Madness.’ The ultra-modern work and leisure space is located at Lennox mall, Lekki, Lagos.
At the turn of each hour starting from noon, there were riveting dance performances and drum battle sessions for five minutes in line with the theme. Guests were also allowed to record their moments of madness and share on social media for a chance to win N100,000 cash reward from Café One.
While speaking at the launch, social media and TV personality, Koye ‘K10’ Kekere-Ekun, said Café One mirrors current millennial trends and lifestyle demands of city dwellers, saying it is the future of work and play.
“Café One couldn’t have opened at a better time when the lines between work and play are becoming more blurred,” he said. “I believe it is relevant to both millennials and tech-savvy seniors who need to access unconventional financial services in a relaxed environment.”
Also, renowned Nigerian celebrity Chef, Fregz, said, “The Café One experience displays excellence from the idea, conception to its delivery.
With free internet connection, an array of online services available on pre-equipped digital devices and perfectly blended coffee to boot, one couldn’t ask for a better combination.”
Café One was designed for comfort and equipped with modern work devices such as smart phones, laptops, tablets and free internet connection with coffee and canapés provided by gourmet shop, My Coffee Lagos.
