The Starbucks Roastery Reserve on Chicago’s Magnificent Mile is on a level that the city — and the world — has never seen before. Located in a historic building on Michigan Avenue, the coffee giant’s new crown jewel is five floors and 35,000 square feet worth of coffee roasting, coffee cocktails, experimental coffee drinks, pizza, pastries, gift shops, and education. It’s the largest Starbucks location in the world.
