Starbucks Curaçao celebrated the grand opening of their new store at Mambo Beach Boulevard
The first Starbucks in Latin America and the Caribbean to offer an ‘Evening Program’
WILLEMSTAD - The community of Curaçao celebrated the grand opening of Starbucks 3rd store on the island. The island is first in the Caribbean and Latin-America to offer the new concept, ‘Starbucks Evening Program’. This new Starbucks store is located at Mambo Beach Boulevard, the next place to be! Starbucks is known for their morning menu, where ‘fans’ can enjoy a good cup of coffee, a croissant, ‘pastechi’ or even donuts- till late in the evening, where the store is ‘alive’ offering good ambiance and a cozy place to socialize when visiting the Renaissance Hotel or Mall.
Every Starbucks store has its own identity; Starbucks Mambo Beach will have an artistic theme and will display artistic paintings from artist Jimena Tafur. According to the executives, this store required a lot of research, had to keep in mind the atmosphere, which needs to inspire good conversations and relaxation. The design team focused a lot on lights, longer tables, warm colors and a lot of art. “We want to give Curaçao the greatest Starbucks Experience”. From the menu to the ambiance, everything has been designed to offer all clients the best experience possible in each Starbucks store on the island.
The Starbucks Evening Program will offer a menu specialized in wines, beers but also a wide selection of coffee and tea. Each Starbucks store that offers the Starbucks Evening Program has a wine list specially selected by Starbucks own sommelier, Rachel Antalek. Research shows that coffee lovers of 18 years and up are also wine enthusiasts and sometimes prefer also an ice cold beer. All these are now available and can be accompanied by a small snack platter to share amongst family and friends. The first Starbucks store offering the Evening Program was opened in 2010, in Seattle. Onward, the demand to open more stores with an Evening Program increased; Starbucks now also became a new social gathering place during the evening hours.
Yesterday, the grand opening of the 3rd Starbucks store in Curaçao was celebrated, after the opening of the first one in 2011 at Renaissance Mall and later on one in the hotel itself. The community of Curaçao can be proud to have the first store in the Caribbean and Latin-America to offer the Starbucks Evening Program. Visit Starbucks at Mambo Beach Boulevard and experience this new concept. Open daily; Sunday till Thursday from 7:00AM till 11:00PM and on Friday and Saturday from 7:00AM till 12:00AM.
