Would you like a glass of wine along with your venti cup of pretentious?

Young, hot, FEMALE topless servers would be the only reason I'd visit SB

That's a combination made for each other.

Drunk people who enjoy Starbucks seem to me like more of a reason to avoid the place, thanks for the heads up  Subby

Not much a hero, they're just copying the Hipster created Coffee Shop/Cafe/Bar mixed venues (such as The Cake Shop in NYC) without adding in the "stage" or "music store" element (cept for a few CDs and/or Vinyl sold on the counter). Just another corporate marketing tactic.

Case your curious about The Cake Shop, Henry Rollins did some nice ego bashing of a few there Hipsters who tried to use the title of his book to make fun of him. Henry Rollins Vs. Hipsters

I went there during this summer cuz I was curious. It's a little worse than it was when Henry was there, because the pretentious assholes were there just the same as before, but they also got rid of the music shop in the back (the only interesting part of that store when I saw it in the video) and replaced it with some mismatched "vintage" furniture.

Eh. Not a wine drinker so no incline to visit for me. Kind of surprised they aren't going micro brew. Espresso stouts are delicious.
 
2014-03-20 11:00:08 PM
Sorry, i don't feel like spending $10 on a glass of beer.
/Yes, glass,not pint, they wouldn't do this if it didn't make them something...

Nope.  They still don't want business from Second Amendment supporters.  I can get booze anywhere, and if it is anything like their coffee, I'll be able to get better booze cheaper elsewhere.
 
2014-03-20 11:10:33 PM
Scotch and sexy barristers?
 
2014-03-20 11:11:19 PM
Nope.

If I'm going to pay bar prices for alcohol then I'll go to a bar with hot waitresses that fake flirt and make me feel at home, not a coffee shop with snobby ones that sigh loudly every time you mix up venti and trenta.

You'd think they could manage having Diet Doke somewhere in the store.

The cafe/light bar combo is pretty common in Europe. Can't see why it wouldn't work here.

Starfarks?

TFA says: Starbucks will expand it's evening menu, which includes bacon wrapped dates

Topless *and* bacon wrapped? It's going to be a popular place.

A reason to visit Starbucks beside handjobs?
 
2014-03-20 11:19:24 PM

Google "R donuts". A brief lived Ft Lauderdale topless donut and coffee shop, they used the Bainated production method Dunkin Donuts uses today.

Hooka..would work..maybe.

If I am going to pay bar prices for alcohol, I want a kick ass blues band and a dance floor.

Only if it's also overpriced and burned-tasting.
 
2014-03-20 11:38:25 PM
All kidding aside, sometime you live in an uncool area. Maybe you don't want to take a taxi out to the bars. Maybe you like walking in your neighborhood but your neighborhood has jack shiat in terms of bars...

But I'll bet there's a starbucks in walking distance. And now they got booze.

I might be drunk as we speak.
 
2014-03-20 11:49:57 PM
OM MAGOODNESS the place which has coolness for hatred. You all have hipness for abhoring the place of this.
 
2014-03-20 11:52:13 PM
Did I just seriously hear that woman say their coffee was too strong?!!??! WTF?!
The whole reason I can't stand that place is because there's no damned coffee in the coffee and I like some coffee in my coffee!  Only been to two, but both were so weak it wasn't funny... there will never be a third time.

/Love Dunkin`s coffee... had it close to 20 times and always been ok
// wonder how much a beer would cost? $33 and how long would the title of a simple beer like Miller be when they were done screwing with it? 33 words to match the price?
 
2014-03-20 11:54:30 PM
the starbucks closest to my place has served booze for 2 years. i have had one beer there. i think it was the first week they started serving.

Dunno about that, there was a 24 hour one in Oregon. It got pretty crazy after hours.
By crazy I mean, hot women doing stuff.

Considering how much they over roast their coffee AKA burning it I'm guessing all the wine will be sold at a rolling boil and mulled, badly. Pumpkin spice Malbec or hazelnut Shiraz would be my bet.
 
2014-03-21 12:04:09 AM
Not a coffee person either. But they do make a decent Italian soda. And free Wifi's always a bonus.
 
2014-03-21 12:12:34 AM
i like the guy in the video who thinks starbucks serving alcohol would confuse us.

Wine, truffle pasta and fondue, feh. Call me when I can get a freshly-made ham and cheese sammich and a bottle of beer there. Honest, working-class food for me.

/Gottle o' geer, gottle o'geer.
 
2014-03-21 12:36:16 AM
how much is it going to cost them to train employees, get the liquor licensing and server cards, will some employees not be able to sell because they're under 21, drunken liability, etc, just to make some more money?  why not an off-shoot of Starbucks instead of this new implementation?  i'd be surprised if this didn't hurt them in some way.  alcohol always f*cks something up.

/they can't even make coffee without burning the beans, how are they supposed to do a proper pour?
 
2014-03-21 12:48:55 AM
Oh, that's why Starbucks is remodeling a bunch of stores in the San Francisco area.

Doesn't everyone go to Starbuck for law advice?

I'm pleading autocorrect...
 
2014-03-21 01:05:33 AM
Will the booze taste kind of bitter?  And if you ask why will they say that is what booze should taste like?
 
2014-03-21 01:11:29 AM
I think it's cool.. Maybe it'd increase the cute girls that'd want to go chill with a glass of wine..

/thinks cute chicks are cute
// thinks cute hipster chicks are cuter.

If I want to drink burned wine, I'll scorch my own, thank you very much.

Espresso + Sambuca is delicious & should sell well.
Just sayin

I guess I missed that controversy, Starbucks is anti-gun?
