A New Starbucks Reserve Is Opening Inside The Empire State Building
Starbucks announced the debut of a massive new Starbucks Reserve Roastery location in one of New York City's most iconic landmarks — The Empire State Building. The 23,000-square-foot cafe, spanning three floors, will offer two coffee bars, a pastry counter, a takeaway counter for freshly roasted beans, and a cocktail bar serving caffeinated adult beverages.
The new Empire State Roastery will also host various small group classes on mixology, coffee grinding, beverage crafting, food pairings, and tasting flights. In addition to offering Reserve-exclusive drinks, the Empire State Building location will also be the first — and, for now, only — Starbucks location to offer the chain's new Cold Pressed Espresso.
In a press release, Mark Ring, the company's Senior Vice President of U.S. retail, said the new location “will bring people together in this diverse and dynamic city over incredible coffee and food experiences that celebrate human connection.” The Empire State Building Roastery will officially open to the public on November 16.
