Starbucks has announced it will be opening its largest location in Chicago this November, dethroning its Tokyo roastery in the process. The four-story 43,000 square foot storefront located in the city’s Magnificent Mile neighborhood will take the former residence of Crate and Barrel.

Since Starbucks has always viewed its roasteries as tourist attractions, the new giant location will also serve specialty coffees, teas, and offer craft cocktails and fancier food items from its bar. The location will also serve as a test for future design concepts and menu products for its initiative to offer a premier location for patrons to hang out, focusing the speed and convenience of its current stores elsewhere.
