Perk up, coffee lovers! 

Starbucks opened a brand new three-floor Starbucks Reserve at the base of the iconic Empire State Building. This unique Starbucks Reserve store encourages and celebrates “connection over coffee.”

Level by Level

The 23,000 square foot Starbucks Reserve store maintains the Empire State Building’s signature Art Deco style throughout its three floors. Observant guests will notice nods to the building’s history on each level of the location, like the exposed steel beams and textured gold paint on the ceiling. 

At the store’s Fifth Avenue entrance, guests are greeted by the familiar grab-and-go Starbucks experience with classic and new beverages, quick bites, and exclusive ESB x Starbucks mugs, t-shirts, hats, and more found only at the location.  

Food and Beverage

Guests will find their favorite Starbucks beverages along with specially crafted brews and blends exclusive to the store, including the Starbucks Reserve Empire State Building Microblend. Each meal at the full-service restaurant begins with a complimentary tasting of the exclusive java before guests dive into the Princi food options which include selections of pizzas, tasting boards, salads, and mains 

Iconic Partnership

As a beacon of sustainability, the Empire State Building attracts office and retail tenants with like-minded goals. Starbucks worked with Dana Robbins Schneider – ESRT’s SVP, director of energy, sustainability, and ESG – to build a space in the iconic building that is as sustainable and efficient as it is beautiful. ESRT’s superior tenant partnerships allow for meaningful strides toward mutual sustainability and energy efficiency goals.
