Rustic Cafes To Consider For Your Next Event In Penang

Hello, lovely islanders! It has been wonderful ever since we came to Penang! We discovered that there are so many cafes and potential venue spaces on this little island! Most of us don’t realize that quaint places like these can be used as event spaces, and most are ideal for intimate events like birthday parties, bridal and baby showers, as well as family and social gatherings. If you missed us last week, check us out here. Now, we at Venuescape, wish to introduce you to the quirky cafes in Penang which are opened to hosting your next event.
