The Maker Cafe reminds you of a Parisian coffeehouse — the restaurant is within a glass conservatory, filled with greenery contrasting dark accents, the lounge is tucked away inside a restored 19th century carriage house with leather-clad walls and grand ceilings — homogeneous to an exclusive boudoir. It even has its own gender-neutral Fragrance Library Room including the limited-edition The Maker Hudson Eau de Parfum.
