Is Starbucks Open On Christmas?

Given the delicious allure of Starbucks' 2023 holiday drinks – like the classic Peppermint Mocha and new as of 2023 Iced Gingerbread Oatmilk Chai — it's easy to imagine waking up on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning craving one of the comforting, sweet coffee beverages. If this sounds like you, you're in luck. Starbucks is set to be open on both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day in 2023. 

But, before you make a plan to indulge in a holiday Starbucks run, know that some locations may choose to close or will operate with reduced hours to accommodate the needs of each individual store, with many Starbucks locations closing by 3:30 p.m. on Christmas Day. The best way to know if your closest Starbucks will be open — and, if so, for what exact timeframe — is to call the store ahead of time and ask. 

You can also check the Starbucks app and see if you have the mobile ordering option available. Don't bank all of your plans on Starbucks being open on Christmas, but, in general, you can expect to see most stores serving drinks for at least part of the day. The handy Starbucks store locator will also show you what locations are open near you.

Will Starbucks Reserve Roasteries be open on Christmas?

Starbucks Reserves are roastery-focused locations that offer customers rare and unique coffee beverage options. There are currently six Starbucks Reserve Roasteries operating in Chicago, New York, Seattle, Tokyo, Shanghai, and Milano. While these locations are typically focused more on coffee production and coffee beans, they still serve a variety of unique drinks, including holiday specialty drinks such as the Peppermint Mocha Espresso Martini, and Starbucks Oleato Whiskey Barrel-Aged Cold Brew.

While there is no official confirmation on the Starbucks Reserve Roasteries' hours for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, travel website Travels and Treasures claims that the Chicago location is closed on Christmas Day. Again, to know for sure, it's best to call ahead and ask. You can call a week or two before Christmas Day and most stores will know what their schedules will be and what will be available. Don't miss out on your last chance to enjoy the Starbucks holiday menu!
