The Starbucks Reserve® Roastery New York City is not your typical coffee shop. The three-level Starbucks flagship – located in the heart of Chelsea – is home to two coffee bars, a bakery, and, yes, a cocktail bar, making a visit here a fully immersive experience in itself.
Visitors can sip craft cocktails at the chic Arriviamo Bar, or curl up by the fire with a warming cup of coffee at the Main Bar. Also not to be missed is their 2023 holiday menu which is *chef’s kiss*, featuring exclusive drinks only available at the Roastery. (We recommend the cozy, seasonal Starbucks Reserve® Peppermint Mocha!)
The Starbucks Reserve® Cocktail Bar
Stop by the Starbucks Reserve® Arriviamo Bar for the seasonal Peppermint Mocha Espresso Martini or make it a group event with year-round espresso martini flights! There are so many menu items worth toasting with this holiday season, including a Cold Brew Spiced Rum and, for the adventurous coffee drinker, an Oleato™ Whiskey Barrel-Aged Cold Brew – a spirit-free cold brew infused with a Partanna® extra virgin olive oil twist.
You can also make your visit to the Starbucks Reserve® Roastery a more immersive one by trying your hand at a Signature Experience. In the Art of the Espresso Martini experience, you and your friends will learn how to make the trendy cocktail alongside an expert mixologist…and get to taste the final product, of course!
But that isn’t the only ticketed experience available…
Starbucks Reserve® Signature Experiences
The new It Started Here First experience gives you and your guests an in-depth demonstration behind now-iconic coffee trends that “started here first” at the Roastery, complete with an exclusive tasting experience.
You’ll learn to make the Whiskey Barrel-Aged “Cold Fashioned” (a classic Old Fashioned with a spirit-free, coffee twist), the Oleato™ Deconstructed, and the Nitro Cold Brew Affogato – three velvety smooth, unexpectedly indulgent beverages you won’t find anywhere else.
For the coffee-obsessed friend who considers themself a pro, the Coffee Lab: A Journey of the Senses is another must-try Starbucks Reserve® experience. This interactive activity walks you through the process of brewing, tasting and identifying ingredients like the real experts.
