Not only is it a really big Starbucks, but it also features a 55-feet/ 16,7 m tall coffee cask that stretches through all the four floors and in a way unites the whole Starbucks in a unique way.
The first floor will feature the Starbucks expected coffee serving area. The stairs to the second floor lead you to a tea-serving area, Teavana. Blending the traditional Japanese craft of tea-making with new and modern flavours. Moving up to the third you will find the bar “Arriviamo“, as you might expect they will serve coffee and tea-inspired drinks and cocktails. Final floor will feature an event area.
