MakMak moves to Surry Hills
MakMak Macarons has moved to Surry Hills after six years in Newtown.
The venue will celebrate the move with a grand opening on 18 December.
Located at 272 Cleveland Street, MakMak’s new two-storey space includes a retail area showcasing macarons along with the 36-hour chocolate chip cookie, custom-made cakes and seasonal desserts.
The Surry Hills outlet also features an entire floor dedicated to macaron-making classes and other pastry-related education sessions as well as a production space where thousands of macarons are made by hand every week.
“I wanted to allow customers to step into the shop and see first-hand how our macarons are made,” says Carlos Heng, MakMak’s founder and CEO. “The new Surry Hills space offers this and more.
“While online sales are booming, we also want to give our customers the opportunity to get up close and personal with the products. A bricks and mortar store experience allows customers to see, smell, feel and taste our products.”
The new outlet will allow MakMak to significantly expand its macaron class schedule and explore other creative ventures including art exhibitions, Japanese tea ceremonies and illustration classes.
To celebrate the Surry Hills opening, MakMak will launch a Christmas range of macarons featuring a reinterpretation of the classic Christmas sweets of gingerbread, white Christmas and candy cane.
