MJ Café at Ponte 16 Grand Opening

Extending the Legend of the “King of Pop”

(MACAU, 5 August 2010) - MJ Café at Ponte 16, Macau (“the Café”), was proud to announce its opening today. As the only Michael Jackson (“MJ”) themed café in China, Hong Kong and Macau, it will definitely become another icon of Ponte 16 following the successful opening of the MJ Gallery at Ponte 16 (the “Gallery”) in February this year. Dr. Ambrose So, Chairman of Ponte 16, Macau, Mr. Sonny Yeung, Chief Executive Officer and Dr. Hoffman Ma, Deputy Chief Executive Officer together with Mr. Hetzer Siu, Chief Executive Officer / National Director of Special Olympics Macau officiated at the Opening Ceremony followed by tasting of coffee and pastries with guests and media.

Located on the first floor of Ponte 16, the Café uses Michael Jackson’s favorite red and black colours as the main theme of interior design. To further enhance a striking stage effect, MJ’s giant dancing photos are mounted on the walls and a collection of genuine MJ costumes are displayed at the Café. The menu is meticulously crafted, offering a variety of coffee, drinks and hand-made pastries. First class coffee beans are selected from around the world to create different profiles of coffee including “smoothness”, “aroma” and “rich”. One of the recommendations is “Hazelnut Latte” which is formulated with an espresso base, mixing with Hazelnut syrup and topped with smooth and fine milk foam. The Café also offers other choices of beverages such as cocktails named after MJ’s records “Thriller” and “Invincible”. The Café knows very well the chemistry between a cup of rich coffee and hand-made pastries, and provides a selection of freshly made pastries like lemon tarts, sandwiches, cupcakes, as well as crispy chicken fillet in baskets and seafood in baskets.

“Earlier this year, Ponte 16 has brought to Macau Asia’s first MJ-themed gallery, which has been well received by visitors. Now we open the MJ Café, adding more flavours to the unique MJ experience at Ponte 16. We believe that the Café, together with the Gallery, will attract more MJ fans and visitors to our property, and further increase the influx of people to the historic Inner Harbour District of Macau,” said Dr. Ambrose So, Chairman of Ponte 16.

In celebration of the opening of the Café and to show our continued support to the community, for every consumption of MOP20 at the Café, Ponte 16 will donate MOP1 to Special Olympics Macau to assist the needy in society.

Besides, from now until 31 October, customers who purchase a 4-piece set of MJ mini coffee mugs will enjoy a complimentary cup of coffee at the Café.

As the only resort situated in Macau’s Inner Harbour, Ponte 16 has endeavoured to provide a diversified travelling experience to visitors from around the world. Further to the opening of the Café, Ponte 16 will hold an exhibition of Hollywood legends in late September, followed by Julien’s Auctions’ first ever auction in Asia in October. Please stay with us for more details of these exciting events.
