And when they say largest, they're not kidding.

When I heard "World's Largest Starbucks" I got excited because I pictured a store front that finally had enough tables and outlets. However, turns out this new Starbucks is WAY more than that.

It's actually called the "Starbucks Reserve Roastery". What does that mean? Picture a Starbucks themed Disney World. WGN details -

The Starbucks Reserve Roastery will be an immersive experience for coffee lovers, dedicated to roasting and brewing Starbucks coffee from around the world.  The four-story, 43,000-square-foot coffee house will be located on the city’s Magnificent Mile at the intersection of Michigan Avenue and Erie Street.  It will feature multiple brewing methods, fresh baking on-site and a new menu of coffees and mixology. This Starbucks location will employ 200 people and include interactive tours, on-site roasting of the brand’s rare reserve beans, and exclusive drinks and menu items “inspired by the culture and traditions of Chicago.” Yes, this includes pizza!

This new storefront will be the fourth of its kind in the world.

So when does it open? The grand opening is November 15 at 10 a.m.
