Starbucks Famille Park is perhaps the most gorgeous Starbucks store in Korea. The exterior is a geometric glass dome structure reflective of urban Seoul. The interior features woods – floors, walls, pillars, chairs and tables – and decorations resembling an urban coffee forest and some other decorations reflective of Starbucks coffee. Starbucks Famille Park is the first high-profile store of Starbucks Korea and is also a Reserve Store – offering the premium Starbucks Reserve beans. Apart from that, there are drinks and menu items which are exclusively available in Starbucks Famille Park.
The general feel of Starbucks Famille Park is cozy and elite-ty. It’s like having coffee in a 5 star deluxe hotel. Chilling out here is an entirely new experience for me. Also Wifi is free – just chose to connect using STARBUCKS 5G.
Starbucks Famille Park opened in 2014 as part Starbucks Korea 15th Anniversary.
The first Starbucks store in Korea opened in 1999 at Ewha Womans University (Yes, that’s how “Womans” is spelled and not “Women’s”). Today, Seoul has more than 800 Starbucks stores – more than those in New York and London.
