The Second Floor – Inaugurating
The Second floor (T2F), originally announced here, was scheduled for opening in March, however due to certain unavoidable (read: construction related) concerns, the inauguration was postponed till Saturday, May 12. However, due to the incidents taking place that day, the opening has been further re-scheduled to Tuesday, May 15, 2007.
A few friends and I had the opportunity to take a sneak peek at the place, on Friday May 11 for an evening coffee.
T2F has something for almost everyone. Great food and drinks (do try the green apple juice), WiFi, a book shop, a mini library so you can take a book of your choice and lose yourself in it while you are at the place.
Whats more, unlike almost all other coffee joints, the ambiance is brightly lit…and has chairs….that make you sit up and conciously think. Botoom line, the ambiance keeps you awake, and pushes your mind to work.
While some may seriously feel the lack of couches, I guess its rather ok to skip them. The space is more focused towards functionality and keep people attentive.
The best part, this place has its own digest. Hoping that it would be available on subscription, the T2F digest is a compilation of interesting reading material from across the world.
As its inaugural, T2F will be hosting a graphic design exhibition by Mariam Asif, a graphic design student from Indus Valley.
The second event, dates or which will be announced shortly, is a local edition of Cafe Scientifique, which basically involves a scientist answering normal questions from daily life. A famous scientist and social activist wil be conducting the session at T2F later this month.
