Get your game face on at the Coco Game Center

It’s all about fun, games and beauty products over at the Chanel Coco Game Center, which is opened to the public until May 13. Taking over the spot where Wing’s Café used to be on Jalan Sultan Ismail, this arcade pop-up is similar to the other Coco Game Centers that have landed in Seoul, Tokyo, Singapore and Toronto, where visitors can enjoy both Chanel’s products and play customised arcade games like the claw machine, ‘Pong’ and a ‘Tap Tap Revenge’-like game to win sample products and button badges.

‘This pop-up was created to celebrate our new lipstick collection, the Rouge Coco Lip Blush; it’s something a little fun for people to discover a new side to Chanel – it’s currently happening in Singapore, and soon it’ll be happening in Taiwan and Thailand,’ said Lim May Lin, the head of communications for Chanel in Malaysia.



To check out the centre, register yourself at to choose your hour-long timeslot – each slot can accommodate about 100 people, ensuring that everyone gets a fair crack at the games. All the arcade games are free to play as much as you want, but claw machines require a token to play – each person is given a set of tokens upon entry, with additional tokens offered with purchases made at the centre. The games aren’t that difficult – you’re likely to win something after a couple of tries – and there’s no shortage of colourful backgrounds to snap a few #ootd posts. 

Aside from the arcade games, you can also try out a range of Chanel products at the make-up bar. Or better yet, get a make-up artist to give you a quick makeover before you explore the town looking your best.
