The Chai Spot aims to be the place where cultural and religious differences are left at the door. Full of color, love, and light, our space offers customers time to indulge in dialogue about how to make peace a more possible act.
At the Chai Spot, we host events, discussions, gatherings, dance sessions, movie nights and so much more. We bring together like-minded people who choose to believe that there is much more to the world than what we hear. We encourage hosting your events with us which can range from book club meetings, entrepreneurs circles, lectures, presentations- really anything that inspires and thrills you.
As a cause-driven initiative, we are focused on providing opportunities to women in Pakistan to use their skills for income generation for themselves and their families. This not only boosts their confidence but gives them a respectful and dignified position in the household.
The Chai Spot offers each customer with a selection of beautiful handmade home goods produced by women from a dozen different villages of the Sindh and Balochistan provinces of Pakistan. These women have beautifully crafted modern styles with ancient embroidery and The Chai Spot brings them to you not only in our Flagship Store in Tlaquepaque but also in our new location in Manhattan New York.
People on the other side of the world- in small towns and close-knit villages are sitting underneath neem trees, inside mud houses, on top of mountains with the jingles of sheep herding by - all sipping on a delicious cup of chai. It is a drink that is served at many happy occasions, casual gatherings, and meet-ups with friends. For many wonderful reasons, chai has become a healing dose of happiness and a way for people to connect.
This spicy aromatic and caffeinated drink is the favorite among millions of people in South Asia. It has not, yet, arrived at the lips of many Americans. Our first and primary goal at The Chai Spot is to give each customer a hot cup of delicious Pakistani Chai!
