World renowned macaron and tea house Ladurée is opening in Chadstone (Melbourne)

Luxury Parisian patisserie Ladurée, a business dating back to 1862, has finally unveiled their first expansion to the streets of Melbourne, bringing Chadstone one of its opulent tearooms. This is the third location for the renowned brand in Australia, following popular venues in Sydney’s Westfield and Woollahra, propping up as part of the huge Melbourne shopping destination’s $660 million redevelopment.

A 12 metre transparent dome provides shade for the macaron and tearoom, which will stand overlooking Chadstone from the centre’s best vantage point, sitting on its new grid shell roof in good company with a range of premium international brands. Inside, the small space sits 21 in total with 9 of those seats reserved for the sleek marble bar which features mosaic artwork in-line with the brand’s classical French aesthetic.

Whether diners sit in the bar or tearoom space they’ll be able to order up Ladurée’s signature delicacies from the tea and macaron menus, while those just popping in can grab macarons on the go and choose from a range of the brand’s retail offerings like their perfumed candles and home fragrances that sit among a selection of chocolates, confectionary, and teas.

Ladurée’s Melbourne store will open up at the end of this month.
