On November 15th at 10am, Starbucks will open its largest store in the world. It will be their sixth Reserve Roastery, and it will be located at the space that was previously a Crate & Barrel store.

Until it opens, the Tokyo Reserve Roastery will remain the biggest one in the world. The other five locations are in Seattle, Shanghai, Milan, and New York City.

The Chicago Roastery was first announced in 2017, but Starbucks shared very few details after the initial announcement.

It’s known that it will spread over 43,000-square-foot space, which means it will be more than twice bigger than the NYC Roastery.

The visitors of the roasteries can get lost in the world of coffee and everything related to it – from Starbucks’ beans to big coffee and food menus and exclusive drinks “inspired by the culture and traditions of Chicago,” as the Chicago Tribune reports.

There will be 200 employees and the food will be served by Princi bakery.

The Roastery will be open until 11pm on workdays and until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays.
