I was leaving the 24 Hour Fitness Downtown last night (Sept. 19th) and noticed there were people inside the new Starbucks Reserve next to the Golden1 Center. I asked myself, “how did I NOT know this opened?!” Turns out that was the soft opening, Sac Business Journal reports. It’s officially open today! Why do you care? It’s not a regular Starbucks. It’s only 1 of 6 in the nation! They offer coffee tastings, specialty drinks, and multiple brewing methods. Basically, it’s a fancier Starbucks.
Update: I went after the show yesterday (Sept. 20th), and I liked it! It’s not as big inside as I expected, but it has a more business casual feel than the average Starbucks. I don’t believe it’s a full menu but don’t let that deter you. The different pouring methods is pretty cool, as well as the small-lot coffee tastings. The best part has to be their seasonal menu. They have delicious drinks you can’t get at any other Starbucks! Right now they’re doing a bunch of drinks with ice cream! It’s worth checking out.
