Starbucks in Atlanta


867 Peachtree [OLD], , Georgia

The first Midtown store is nothing to sneeze at, however--it's one of the prettiest in the city. Very spacious and comfortable, with the interior architecture dividing up the seating area so that one can have the sense of privacy, if in a meeting or study group for example. One unusual element was an artist offering to do a charicature or painting of some sort--for renumeration, of course.

By and by, Starbucks locations attached to other business's such as grocery stores or bookstores are not very interesting, but this B&N location in Alpharetta defies the pattern with the buildings intricate stonework.

The Store Locator had me wondering up and down State Highway 400 untill I called this store and discovered that the four Alpharetta were conveniently close to one another. This store I found particularly interesting because of the elderly couple playing Scrabble. I longed to join them, but I had... responsibilities.

This nifty mall location was a pleasant surprise. Although labeled a kiosk on the mall directory, you can see that the deviates from the conventional. I like the way that the Starbucks logo is integrated into the elevator, almost as if the Siren were watching over us from above, or perhaps lifting us higher with the potent power of the bean.

The wallpaper on a back wall of this location had me puzzled--it looked like it really might be unique to the store, rather than a new corporate standard. However, I soon encountered the same at several other Atlanta locations. I do not recall seeing it in any other market, which makes me wonder if it was a decision made at the district level.

Atlanta's well-known and often-confusing Peachtree Street has Starbucks aplenty, and this, in the heart of downtown, is the "first" along the road.

Sugaring your coffee has never been more exciting than at this store, because behind the condiment bar sits a large siren logo engraved in glass and affixed in a lighted base. Way cool. On top of that, the store also displays a very large blackboard on which customers can express themselves in a variety of colors.

And continuing north on Peachtree I found another sharp-looking store, and a pleasant surprise--a telephone line!! None of the baristas at the previous stores could tell me of a location that offered this convenience, and I was pleased to be able to upload my photographs and offer a play-by-play of my tour. Truthfully told, however, the store is prettier from the outside than the inside--it's pretty old. But the manager is really cool.

Boy, I wish that I had slept just an hour less, that I could have arrived at this lovely store just as the sun was peeking over the building. South of Atlanta in Fayette county, this store has a deck so appealing to locals that the management posted a sign requesting that the area be reserved for customers. It's only fair. The store also has the distinction of being the sole location south of I-20... can you demographic whizzes out there guess why?
