Starbucks’ New Montague Street Locale Opens Saturday

The new Starbucks location at 134 Montague Street opens for business Saturday May 12, as the windows at the previous store at 112 Montague were covered in brown paper Friday night, with an arrow pointing up the street.

As previously reported, the new space at the former Nine West shoe store will sacrifice major window vistas along the front, although the folks at Heights Vision next door told BHB that it is deeper and offers more square footage. Here’s a first look inside the new store.

Starbucks decided to relocate because the one-story building at 112 Montague was a constant source of roof leaks and plumbing issues. Its new destination at 134 Montague has been completely gutted and rebuilt, including the residential above.

    A new meeting place for “Starbucks swilling yuppie scum” – as Murphy Brown once described them…

    I am not fond of them either, but would never describe them as Murphy Brown did. Really mean-spirited and just plain nasty.

  • James

    Murphy Brown was a great show with many sarcastic and hilarious lines. You probably wouldn’t like her comments regarding Disney World either. Lighten up.

    You would probably think the yuppies should lighten up also when they are offended by your comment. If Murphy Brown disliked Disney World-i am with her 100%.

    I said the word, yuppie to my sister who is 7 years younger and she said that no one uses the word yuppie anymore.
    I must be getting old.

    Yuppie is a word used by angry old Hippies to describe the sellouts of their generation. Antiquated word at its very best especially since the poster boy for its usage has been dead for 18 years.

    I waited 20 minutes yesterday for a friggin’ iced tea, unsweetened. When it finally arrived, it was sweetened. I’m done with Starbucks. The staff in the new space doesn’t know what they’re doing…

  • Silly

    20 minutes? At that point you are to blame.

    Jazz – wasn’t Jerry Rubin a Yippie? (youth international party of the 60’s). I think the term yuppie came much later. Both antiquated I think.

  • Jazz

    @lcd – Rubin went from Hippie to Yippie to Yuppie to Road Pizza.

  • GHB

    Silly, I guess I was exaggerating… but it was still too long

    @ghb We waited for 20 minutes for our drinks. True story.

    There is another Starbucks opening across the street from Shake Shack on Fulton. It was previously a Big and Tall mens store. Kind of shocking considering their Court Street location is just one block away, but nice to see Fulton Street getting nicer one step at a time.

    Wow, a Starbucks is going into where PortoBello (which was not just a big and tall men’s store, but whatever. Luckily my husband did not shop there, I just know about it because I work in the neighb). I’m actually pretty psyched for that. The Joralemon/Court Starbucks is a real nightmare. Also, are you saying that they didn’t bring the staff from the old location to the new one? Insane.
