Starbucks in Brooklyn to sell craft beer at night
One hip Starbucks location is now offering craft beer and wine -- and, of course, it's in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
Starbucks announced their Williamsburg location on N 7th St. would be the first stand-alone cafe in New York to offer their Starbucks Evenings menu. In addition to alcohol, customers will be able to order from a limited food menu that includes meatballs, truffle mac and cheese, artichoke and goat cheese flatbread, bacon-wrapped dates, and other small plates. The 2,900 square-foot Brooklyn cafe will feature ten different wines and craft beer from Brooklyn Brewery, which is only a few blocks away.
"I go to Starbucks every morning, so it's cool that you can get alcohol at night," a 29-year-old nurse told New York Daily News. "Bars are always so noisy and rowdy; it's more quiet and relaxed here."
The Starbucks Evenings menu is available at more than 70 cafes around the country, including one small cafe inside of Macy's in Manhattan.
